This latest Guyson 'Kerry' branded Microsolve 250, built in record time, has three process stages comprising ultrasonic cleaning, followed by vapour rinsing and freeboard drying. It provides precision cleaning of components used in the ventilators and is crucially already cleared by regulators, being used by an existing OEM manufacturer, so can immediately support production.

Says Mark Viner, Guyson's blast and wash division managing director: “It continues to be a really challenging period, but I am very proud of our outstanding workforce our welders, fabricators, fitters, electricians, test engineers and not forgetting office staff who once again have enabled us to support this vital initiative supplying ventilator parts to the frontline.”

Having already supplied a Microsolve 250 and 350 - a larger version with greater throughput - to the consortium in the last month, it now means that Guyson solvent based ultrasonic cleaning equipment will be providing precision cleaning to seven critical cleaning lines involved in the VentilatorChallengeUK Consortium.

After satisfying the initial UK demand Guyson are now also getting urgent orders and enquiries for its Microsolve precision cleaning equipment from other companies around the world, including Australia and North America.

An identical machine to those manufactured for the VentilatorChallengeUK will be on its way before the end of May to a Mexican organisation involved in manufacturing similar ventilators for the domestic market and Guyson's production staffs are working flat out in trying to meet this critical demand.
