Increasing Mask Production
The result of this work is the automation system for Clēan Batch, Clēan Flow and Clēan Flow Mini systems. The new Clēan Flow Mini machine can sanitize 1,200 masks per hour or almost 30,000 per day.
Clēan Works technology has been certified by Health Canada and validated by the Food and Science Department at the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. For sanitization of PPE and N95 masks, it’s been approved for use across Canada.
The solution needed to physically fit into the small constraints of the control panel, while at the same time offering the control and flexibility for system enhancements as the systems evolved.
Utilizing the Micro800™ control platform allows for a scalable, economic solution. The PanelView™ 800 operator interface provides machine control, visualization of status and remote control/view of the HMI utilizing the built in VNC server. By remotely connecting to the machine, Clēan Works can monitor critical machine data, as well as offer any remote support or system upgrades utilizing the VNC capabilities in the PanelView 800.
