Mecc Alte’s Oakham service department, part of Mecc Alte International, the world’s largest independent producer of synchronous alternators has recently invested in one of Vixens automatic Jetwash cleaning and degreasing machines.

Mecc Alte, who provideelectrical engineering, repair and maintenance were looking for a more robust insulated machine with a larger basket, of which would utilize a far more sustainable detergent suitable for their degreasing and cleaning requirements. This piece of equipment would be capable of cleaning and degreasing various sized train A.C generators and components.

Many of the components which Mecc Alte need to clean are mounted outside of carriages of trains, so they were searching for a machine and a detergent which would work together to simultaneously clean and degrease to remove the contamination.

After trials and tests with Vixen Surface Treatments, Mecc Alte found that the Jetwash 84 degreasing machine provided increased levels of quality and cleanliness over previous rented degreasing machines. The quality of the equipment together with the backup of Vixen’s service engineers and after sales support was a sure aid to improve over Mecc Altes existing methods.

Rod Marshall, Service & Technical Support Manager tells us why he purchased Vixens Jetwash degreasing machine:

“Prior to using the Vixen Jetwash degreasing machine we were using a rented piece of equipment for cleaning and degreasing the components. We were looking for a machine which we could own and service affordably and after initial visits with one of Vixens engineers we quickly identified there could be room for improvement over our previous equipment, which is why we decided to go ahead with the purchase. We have had the machine for a while now and can truly say it was worth every penny and is far more economical than previous methods.”
