Pero represents a company you can talk to with confidence. Regardless of whether its solvent or aqueous cleaning we look at your problems and listen to your expectations. We then propose solutions that suit your exact needs. Pero degreasing machines are a sound investment for all sizes of manufacturers who demand


reliability, repeatability and require their products to be cleaned to a high quality with minimal intervention from the operator or the maintenance department.

“Made in Germany” the mark of cutting-edge technology

Since the foundation of the Pero company, it has been their claim to offer you the best cleaning plants available on the market. Using innovative technology and high-quality components that form the basis of all their advanced parts cleaning Machines.

Pero Degreasing Equipment

Quality – Made in Germany

PERO degreasing machines have always been designed, developed and manufactured at our Königsbrunn and Gotha facilities. They manufacture their machines with known, competent assemblies which they make in house. We use high-quality components sourced from renowned European manufacturers. This helps Pero guarantee powerful and durable systems. Pero constantly hold spare-parts in stock for far more than 10 years.

Compliance – relevant regulations

From ISO 9001 to section 19 Water Resources Act (WHG) – Pero are certified according to all the current standards that are relevant to their products.  Pero degreasing machines comply with all the important regulations (e.g. VOC, Federal Emission Protection Ordinance (BlmSchV), CE and the ATEX explosion protection standards).

Acceptance Test Run –  to ensure satisfaction with your Pero degreasing machines

Since we always want to satisfy you 100 %, a wet acceptance test is performed every time before a plant is delivered. I.e.: the cleaning plant is filled with the specified medium and accepted subject to operating conditions. The plant leaves our site only when you are satisfied with the cleaning result of your original components. This is a standard PERO degreasing machines service.

Excellent price – performance ratio

Further development of our Pero degreasing machines and further rationalisation of our manufacturing and merchandise systems are equally important for us. Cost advantages resulting from the optimisation of these processes are be passed on to you. When it comes to your investment decision, we take care to ensure you fully understand both the investment and running costs.

Pero Degreasing Machines – A History of Success and Innovation

  • 2012 Development of the “R2” solvent degreasing machine. Expanding the R-series program following the huge success of the R1 machine.
  • 2009 Development of the “R” series solvent degreasing machine, available in size 1.  This new product revolutionises component cleaning. Cycle times are reduced by almost 50%, ensuring capacity and throughput are almost doubled. In addition to speed the R1 delivers an even more thorough cleaning of the components.
  • 1998 – 2005  Stepwise completion of the full vacuum plant series up to size V5.  PERO now produces all its solvent plants with the full vacuum technology up to size V5. This plant has the capacity of one Euro skeleton and 1000kg per load.  Loads across the range can be processed in 6-15 minutes depending on machines size. box.
  • 2004 Market launch of the first “Universal” cleaning plant.  The “Universal” cleaning plant type can be operated with Chlorinated solvents, Hydrocarbons, modified alcohols, fluorinated or brominated hydrocarbons (flashpoint >55 °C). Switching of the type of solvent is possible without mechanical alterations any time and in a simple manner.
  • 1998 Construction of the first V-Series full vacuum plant in size 1.  For the first time this development enables all solvent-bearing areas are operated under vacuum.  PERO achieves permanent leakage monitoring of the cleaning plant allowing the process to run at significantly lower temperatures reducing the media consumption, thermal decomposition and is better for the components.
  • 1998 PERO developments revolutionise the explosion protection regulations.  While competitors of PERO consider negative pressure in plants working with hydrocarbons as sufficient explosion protection, the Königsbrunn company chooses another path: it launches systems with qualified explosion protection, and thus sets the right course: PERO’s degreasing equipment explosion protection solution is exemplary and is taken up by legislation.
  • 1991 PERO plants cleaning despite CFC prohibition.  Due to the ban on CFC, the refrigerant used in plants of PERO cannot be used anymore. PERO therefore develops its own refrigerant made up of permissible substances.
  • 1986 PERO degreasing machines serves as a model in the determination of limit values.  PERO degreasing machines ushers in a new era with solvent cleaning plants for CHC. The systems are physically closed. The extremely low consumption of the plants serves the legislators as a standard for the limit values of the German Federal Emission Control Act.
  • 1978 Development of the front loader by Pero.  The first hermetically sealed solvent degreasing plant. The first front loader in the world for component cleaning plants is developed and launched by Pero. Today, this principle has been acknowledged around the globe as state of the art and is copied by many.
  • 1975 Development of the closed-cycle Chlorinated solvent plant.  The plants are provided with a facility for drying the components. The work-pieces can be removed dry and without odours. Operator exposure levels are greatly reduced, setting the standards for future developments.
  • 1964 Robomat replaces steam-jet plant in repair shops, considerably reducing waste water volumes associated with aqueous cleaning systems of the day. The “Robomat” manages to remove persistent contamination and burnt-in oils from the work-pieces and repair components for the first time without personnel interaction.  The principle of operation of the Robomat is so successful that this machine is still in production today, 50 years on.
  • 1956 Launch of electrical refrigeration.  Huge amounts of solvent where consumed by the early cleaning plants. Horst Erbel saw the chance and need drastically reduce solvent consumption by 55% reducing average consumption from 16kg/h to 8kg/h in a single design step.
