When it comes to cleaning greasy parts and heavy machinery, there has been a move from traditional solvent cleaning to an aqueous based method. This has been driven by EU directives, which require a safer and more environmentally friendly process. By using a water based cleaning solutions (up to 95% water), it is safer for your staff, eliminates fire hazard and is safe for the environment.
The water used in Aqueous cleaning is deionised water. This is pure water, free from minerals, particulates, and dissolved ions removed by a filtration process. Deionised water alone is an effective cleaner as it attracts the contaminant ions from any surrounding surface (or just metal), including stainless steel, and leaves a clean spot free finish.
Our Aqueous cleaning systems produce from 0.14 to 2.85 m3/hr of high purity water for applications such as printed circuit board de-fluxing, stencil cleaning and high quality metal component rinsing. The systems incorporate a range of mixed bed and carbon cylinders that are capable of operating at temperatures up to 70°C.
