All types of tube and drawn products in general (of any material), for any purpose, are united by the need for cleaning and degreasing, both to make subsequent operations possible and to satisfy the needs of customers.

REA steam cleaning systems for washing and degreasing in line allow these operations to be carried out during production and without interrupting the production flow.

REA Steam Cleaning realizes systems for in-line cleaning of pipes / profiles always based on the use of steam, because with steam you have the following advantages:

  • high degreasing levels (up to Arcotest 42);
  • cleaning and degreasing at line speed (up to 50 m / min)
  • low water consumption (generally< 50 l / hour);
  • very little wastewater produced (generally< 10 l / hour);
  • extremely small footprint on the line (generally< 1 mt);
  • an ecological alternative to the use of solvents;
  • the interchangeable washing chambers allow to treat different diameters.

High levels of degreasing

This is an intrinsic feature of steam cleaning due to the high temperature of the steam.

Low water consumption

In the case of cleaning with steam, low quantities of water are used, especially when the section of the profiles is small.

Very little wastewater

One of the characteristics that distinguishes steam cleaning systems is the low quantity of waste produced, composed largely of the dirt removed and partly of the condensation of the water vapor.

Extremely reduced dimensions on the line

All our in-line cleaning systems are distinguished by their extremely small footprint, all other support units are always placed out of the line. These features allow us to easily place our systems even in small spaces on pre-existing lines with minimal changes, which translates into a substantial gain for the customer already in the installation phase.

An ecological alternative to solvent systems

We do not use solvents! Our steam cleaning systems have always been a truly ecological alternative to the use of solvents.

If it is necessary to use detergent, it will be recycled continuously and therefore consumption is very low (generally< 5 l / day).


Our exclusive system of interchangeable chambers allows to treat different diameters, with setup times of less than 5 minutes.
