Solvent-based systems

 

CHC, HC, modified alcohols, VOC-free solvents

 

 

It pays off to inspect our chamber systems for solvents more closely. We build any size and constantly innovate. We are very proud of our process engineering, as it saves money, protects the environment and provides unique cleaning results.

Cleaning processes - processes that make a real difference

 

 

Naturally, we provide proven methods such as pre-wash circuits, spray and immersion cleaning, ultrasonic cleaning with vacuum degassing or pressure flooding, but actually like to offer some more.

 

  • Alternating pressure process
    Changing pressure conditions in the process chamber alternately boil and condense the cleaning medium. This demonstrably improves the flushing action, especially in blind holes and narrow gaps.

  • Pressure condensate spraying
    The patented vapic process produces ultra-clean distillate. This distillate is even hotter than the still vapour and is sprayed across the components after wet cleaning.

  • Chamber floor heating - the better way of vapour degreasing
    The option “Heat chamber” heats up the distillate used during “pressure condensate spraying” in the chamber. This achieves yet another “condensate flushing action”. The steam used in this process is much cleaner than usual still vapour.

  • Vacuum infrared drying in solvent systems
    Our method is the first to enable the use of vacuum infrared drying known from aqueous cleaning systems in solvent-based systems. This technology also enables the drying of low-mass parts. It often accomplishes an additional thermal post-cleaning effect.

  • Plasma cleaning
    Low pressure plasma and wet cleaning in a working chamber
    Part cleaning with atmospheric plasma

Developments

 

 

Easy operation: No need of maintenance is the best maintenance

 

We think about serviceability when integrating maintenance racks for removing heavy units in the scope of supply or when mounting as simple a thing as a bow to a venting ball valve to protect your workers. However, we prefer to develop maintenance-free closed loops. For instance, our vacuum adsorber in our solvent-based systems is a fully automated system, which regenerates the activated carbon during operation. It not only saves maintenance, activated carbon and machine downtime but also solvents and energy.

 

Good for the working atmosphere: Clean air

 

Strong-smelling compounds are often released into the air by system operated with hydrocarbons or modified alcohol. We have developed an “air washer” that keeps the working environment odourless. This method effectively saves solvents and on top is a secure system for protecting your system and components from low-boiling acids.

 

Sustainability: When solvents become renewable

 

Already in 2011, we successfully completed a research project: Solvent-based cleaning agents with VOC-free solvents, partially from renewable raw materials.

 

Confirmed safety: Protection by process engineering

 

We have obtained an expert statement on our process description from the IBEXU Institute and a testing laboratory recognized by the EU, because solvent mixtures are flammable. This demonstrates that our process is explosion-proof.
