- General information
- Cleaning processes
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

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.
