Safe Alternative to Solvent Degreasing

The new Vapourwash machine from degreasing manufacturer Technowash is designed to be a safe alternative to vapor solvent degreasing.

The new Vapourwash machine from degreasing manufacturer Technowash is designed to be a safe alternative to vapor solvent degreasing. The company claims it is the first fully aqueous based alternative vapor degreasing system available on the market, and is a significant development in the continued campaign to reduce solvent usage in the workplace. The machine looks like a conventional solvent vapor degreaser, with a similar footprint, and is operated like a conventional solvent vapor degreaser. Rigorous performance testing has shown that the cleaning standards achieved are consistent, effective, and precise, either matching or outperforming traditional solvent vapor degreasers on each occasion–all with use of only water-based detergents. The machine is split into three cleaning stages and a drying stage. Component parts are processed through a heated agitation immersion stage, high powered spray wash stage and a fine heated vaporized mist rinse stage, before finally a hot air drying stage ensures parts leave the machine both clean and dry.
