Ecoclean: The choice of the right cleaning technology decides Solvents are often a superior alternative in terms of cost efficiency and sustainability

Aug 10, 2018 Filderstadt, Germany. When it comes to obtaining oil and grease-free surfaces in a stable process, a solvent-based part cleaning method will commonly provide benefits at the process technology, economic and ecological levels. Given the polar nature of both the contaminant and the cleaning medium, cleaning will be achieved quickly and reliably. With their extensive range of solvent-based cleaning systems, Ecoclean can offer a suitable solution to whatever challenge. The task of industrial part cleaning is to achieve the cleanliness required for high-quality downstream processes – e.g., coating, adhesive bonding, welding, curing – in a reliable, but also cost-efficient and resource-saving manner. The success of this operation is critically dependent on the use of a suitably adapted approach in terms of chemicals, equipment and process technology. Contamination, materials and part geometry are critical For selecting the cleaning fluid, the chemical principle "like dissolves like" may be taken as a guide. Aqueous detergents are typically employed for water-based (polar) contaminants such as aqueous coolant and lubricant emulsions, salts, abrasion residue and other solid matter. To make sure that the medium will not attack the product surface, it is recommended to test the material compatibility and achievable results through cleaning trials beforehand. For mineral oil based (non-polar) contaminants such as machining oils, greases, waxes and resins, a solvent (chlorinated hydrocarbon, non-halogenated hydrocarbon or modified alcohol) will normally be the right choice. Chips and particles present on the product will lose their adhesion to the surface once the oil is removed and are then eliminated via an operation such as, e.g., injection flood washing and ultrasound. Depending on the contamination to be removed, the optimum solution will be a non-halogenated hydrocarbon, a chlorinated hydrocarbon, or a modified alcohol. The latter media have lipophilic and hydrophilic properties enabling them to remove...
