Guys,

Is there a product that can be added to the Di system of a wire EDM machine that will clean the system? Meaning the tank, and help dissolve/breakdown any buildup that may be present on the pump pick ups?
Thanks,
Mark

Adding anything to the water will just cause the filter(s) and DI resin to work to remove it from the water. That being said, there are EDM specific cleaners out there that work well. We would typically drain our tank, clean everything, and then refill the system up with water that had been run through a resin bottle from the tap.

If you are machining something that is especially dirty and your filtration system cannot keep up, that is a different story and you can do something about that. Some EDM systems I have used we have added a sock filter to the drain from the EDM tank going into the water system. This will help remove any solids from the water. Alternatively or additionally you can add a settling tank. A settling tank for a wire EDM machine should have enough volume to drain the entire tank into. As the water drains into the settling tank it will overflow into the filtration system. The goal there is to slow the water down and give it time for the solids to fall out.

if you guys have distributor for Erodex in NA then their magic cleaner is great for the tank cleaning and the do an aggressive cleaner called altranz for the pick ups and head parts to dissolve the build up, magic cleaner is for pretty much everything
