There are many different options for industrial cleaners to choose from when it comes to parts finishing in manufacturing facilities. Among the various kinds of industrial cleaners, solvent-based cleaning solutions find a welcome place in many industrial facilities because they have certain properties that set them apart from the others. With the bevy of options to choose from at Mikro Industrial Finishing, we provide many reasons why you should choose solvent-based cleaning solutions for your industrial facility.
The most notable advantage to using solvent cleaners or compound or other cleaners is that they are more advanced and can achieve a more thorough clean. Other industrial cleaners may polish or wash away dirt, but solvents are specifically designed to remove grease and other contaminants completely. This is particularly useful in such industries as electronics, where parts are heavily greased during the manufacturing process. Solvents are powerful cleaners that rid the parts of grease and rust and therefore lead to a higher quality product. Some solvents are also used for deburring preparation, painting, and welding if a thorough clean is necessary before those processes can begin.
One of the best reasons for using solvent-based cleaners in a vapor degreaser is the repeatability and reliability of the process. By the design of the machine, a vapor degreaser is constantly distilling and cleaning the solvent that the part is exposed to. The solvent vapor, which is the last chemical the parts are exposed to, is free of all contaminants, and offers the parts a precision final rinse that can rarely be duplicated in aqueous cleaning. The consistency of the cleaning power is much easier to maintain than an aqueous cleaner. With aqueous parts washers, the operator must constantly check titration and maintain the oil removal and filtration. With a vapor degreaser, just add solvent and change the (1) filter element as needed. By constantly distilling the solvent for the cleaning process, the machine is removing water and cleaning the solvent, allowing the operator to worry about parts cleaning, not bath maintenance.
We at Mikro Industrial Finishing carry many different kinds of solvent-based cleaning solutions, designed to fit all kinds of manufacturing industries. We also use these products in our Job Shop, which completes parts finishing jobs without the need for your own heavy equipment.
