Cleaning with solvent vapour
Vapour degreasing takes place in a closed working chamber of a chlorinated or non-halogenated hydrocarbon cleaning system. It is suitable for cleaning oils, greases, emulsions, etc. from lightly contaminated components.
The solvent is heated up to its boiling point and the resulting solvent vapour directed onto the components to be cleaned. The temperature difference between the hot vapour and the cold components causes the solvent to condense on the surface of the work pieces, which results in a rinsing action by the pure solvent condensate.
