Super large economy system for assembled PCBs, hybrids, misprints

The kolb PSE economy line is a quality series of advanced cleaning systems, which focuses on all essential criteria for a qualified cleaning process and therefore stands for attractive purchase prices.

PSE LX9 is a fully automatic XXL high volume PCB fine cleaning system with by far the largest process chamber in a PCB cleaning batch system worldwide and thus with uncontested capacity per time (860 equals 19m² / 204.5 ft² eurocards) in one cleaning cycle (corresponding to a relative cleaning time of 8 seconds per card) than any common inline system.

PSE LX9 is a German engineered and manufactured machine primarily for the process safe fine cleaning of assembled PCBs, hybrids (HDIs, SiPs) and misprints from reflow flux residues, resin, copper, oxide and soldering support substances.

The parallel working three-tank, three separate cicuits configuration with ClosedLoop water reprocessing ensures short cycle times as well as low running cost leading to a very low total cost of ownership value.


  • Three-tank system with three separate circuits
  • Fully automatic 4step (optional up to 5step) process: cleaning, (MediumWipe®), rinsing (tap water), DI-water rinsing (with parallel DI-water recycling), VMH®-Turbo evaporative drying
  • Process and service intervals PLC controlled
  • Event issuing and software control via high resolution 10" display with capacitive multi-touch
  • Horizontal PTFE mounted rotor system with up to eight asynchronous spray rotors for thorough wetting (no blind spots)
  • Automatic monitoring of ionic residues contamination and gauging of rinse water quality
  • Heater in cleaning tank (A) as a standard feature
  • Exchange for rinse water tanks (B and C) and pump out unit as standard features
  • Maximum capacity on a very small footprint
  • HT version for high temperature cleaning and rinsing up to 80 °C (176 °F) available
