Slide APOLLO 75 Spray-Immersion
Cleaning System

A big name that can be used for a wide range of industrial parts cleaning applications. As our motto – ‘Cleaning from Simple to Complex’ – sums up, this system can process parts weighing up to 100kg (optionally up to 160kg). The combination of different spray and immersion cleaning processes cleans even hard-to-reach spots like drill holes and recesses in a process-reliable way.

The Apollo can be used for a wide variety of end and intermediate cleaning processes. The freely programmable 360° rotation of the batch makes it possible to achieve optimal cleaning results. Integrating an ultrasonic cleaning method removes film-like and particulate contamination even better.

Adding various drying modules, such as warm air, hot air or vacuum drying modules, completes this standard system from Zippel.

Compact, process-reliable and energy-efficient systems with an optimal price-quality ratio.

Function description

This type of system consists of a cleaning chamber with a rotation unit, an automated lifting door and a media container that lays beneath. The parts are placed in a standard wash basket or in an individually designed goods carrier and then put into the process chamber. The system is operated via a 7″ touch panel.


The loading can either be automated or can be done manually. The system can clean both small parts or precision mechanical parts, and larger cast parts weighing up to 100 kg (optionally up to 160 kg).

Possible treatment steps include:
(Ultrasonic) cleaning, (DI water) rinsing, immersion and (vacuum) drying.

Cleaning process

The cleaning and rinsing can be done either as a spray or as an immersion process. The freely programmable rotation movement allows the items to be cleaned to be guided past the spray lines. This means that even hard-to-reach spots can be thoroughly cleaned.

Media preparation

The cleaning medium is heated up to the required cleaning temperature with electrical heating elements. This temperature is then kept constant for the entire duration of the process. To minimise any media carry over, the spray lines are blown out with compressed air after each process step.

There is the option to integrate the powerful EcoSep mini coalescence oil separator. Alternatively, the Zippel HM-Z Microblast Generator can be easily connected with quick-release couplings.
