Vapor Degreasing

Vapor degreasing is a water-less cleaning process. It involves solvents in vapor form to cleanse the workpiece in preparation for further finishing operations.

What are the benefits of Vapor Degreasing?

  • Waterless Process
  • Good Cleaning of Heavy Oils
  • Rapid Rinsing and Drying
  • Non-Hazardous
  • Cavitates Well
  • Non-Flammable
  • Compatibility with Metal Alloys
  • Low Solvent Consumption

 

How Does it Work?

  • Wetting – Components in solvent reduce surface tension, allowing the solvent to penetrate soils
  • Dissolution – Solvent dissolves the organic contamination
  • Displacement
    • The solvent may separate the soil from the substrate
    • Agitation is often necessary in order to fully displace
  • Dispersion – The suspended soils are evenly dispersed preventing soil re-deposition
