Loricraft PRC6i Record Cleaning Machine
Available now from Loricraft, the new upgraded PRC6i!
Loricraft Audio is pleased to announce the launch of the New Improved PRC4i & PRC6i which is of exceptional build quality, engineered for ultimate cleaning performance, quieter in operation and improved efficiency. Made by SME in Steyning, West Sussex, England.
Cleaning fluid is applied to the rotating record surface and manually brushed into the grooves of the record to agitate dirt and contaminants. The vacuum arm traverses across the record producing a powerful vortex vacuum which effortlessly extracts the contaminated waste fluid out of the record grooves which is deposited into the external waste jar.
The PRC6i is the quietest Loricraft record cleaning machine with a large vacuum capacity of 18 litres of flow per minute. Capable of achieving the same cleaning results as the double pump PRC4i with the added benefit of being extremely quiet in operation.
The main spindle and bearing are precision made and housed in a robust phosphor bronze case to make good use of the high torque motor. Bearing spindle and motor are designed for long life and importantly provide a considerable drive force to the platter to aid the cleaning process. The cleaning vacuum arm is driven across the vinyl record by a custom made gearbox system with precision horizontal and vertical yoke bearings. The vacuum arm yoke bearings are the highest grade allowing precise movement and designed to prevent ingress contamination from cleaning fluids. The platter can be driven in forward (clockwise) and reverse (anticlockwise) directions for thorough cleaning of the record grooves, a unique feature as dirt can be driven into the record grooves by a playing stylus. Cleaning in both directions of the groove provides optimum cleaning performance.
