A new chiller replaces the older compressor-type refrigeration system and provides greatly enhanced solvent recovery over previous models. You will save tens of thousands of dollars on cleaning fluid costs. Reduced Maintenance and Repair Costs. The new CF9200 design is simpler and more trouble-free. In addition, there is a 2 year warranty on the chiller.

The CF9200 incorporates the latest generation of powerful ultrasonic generator which is user adjustable – an industry first!

Operates at a higher frequency of 40 KHz and produces more cleaning power with 50% more ultrasonic transducers. More powerful cleaning action with the same important film safety built in.

Adjustable Buffer System Improves Cleaning Performance. 

This new enhancement to Lipsner-Smith film cleaning technology has been proven to substantially improve solvent cleaning performance. The user can now increase or decrease buffer pressure to suit particular requirements or individual types of cleaning work.

In addition, the new CF9200 incorporates a multi-cartridge solvent filtering system, stainless steel solvent and vapor lines, and refined cabinet and door sealing to reduce vapor loss and decrease running costs.

Whisper-Quiet Operation.

The newly re-engineered CF9200 replaces the noisy refrigeration compressor for solvent recovery with a sealed chiller system that is quiet and vibration-free. Now the finest film cleaning system is suitable for use in noise-sensitive office environments as well as in film labs and archives.

Upgrade Your Existing Lipsner-Smith Film Cleaning Machine

Because of it’s unique properties, it is not practical to use Novec 8200 in film cleaning machines designed for chlorinated solvents. There may be material incompatibilities, inadequate ultrasonic and cleaning arrangements and unnecessary levels of solvent losses.

However, certain existing Lipsner-Smith Film Cleaning Machines are candidates for upgrading and retrofitting to work with Novec 8200.
