It utilizes the hot vapours of a chlorinated or fluorinated solvent to evacuate soils. Especially oils, greases, and waxes. A vapour degreasing unit comprises of a steel tank with a heated solvent reservoir, or sump, at the base and a cooling zone close to the top. Adequate heat is acquainted into the sump which boils the solvent and create hot solvent vapour. Since the hot vapour is heavier than air, it uproots the air and tops the tank off to the cooling zone.
Supersheen offer the most comprehensive degreasing service, handling small batch work to tonnage. The degreasing system at Supersheen can handle components 2 meters long including machined details. The degreasing method employed incorporates Ultrasonics ensuring all surfaces including recesses and blind holes can be degreased. The system can handle all metals and is particularly suited for cleaning components prior to electrophoretic painting, powder coating, anodising, plating etc. Supersheen also offer aqueous cleaning to complete the comprehensive facility available. The degreasing system has found particular favour in the automotive component industry, where the demand for cleanliness has become essential as a final cleaning operation before assembly of component parts.
Vapour degreasing is achieved by first immersing the components into hot solvent, and after a pre-set time the components are moved out of the solvent into a refrigerated zone. The solvent vapour condenses in this zone causing the condense to “run off” the components creating a rinsing action, the parts finally being moved into a cooling area, where drying is affected, and finally then to the unload zone, where parts can be handled clean and dry awaiting any follow-on operation.
