Simple Control Safety Panel
  • NESHAP Compliant - Vapor Degreasing System
  • Solid Stainless Steel Construction - Heavy Gauge 304 Stainless Steel used on tank, water separator, spray reserve tank, primary coil, low-temperature coil, lid system, tank access doors and tank fittings.
  • Stainless Steel Primary Condensing Coil - New Copeland refrigeration system operating with standard R134A refrigerant.
  • Sub-Zero Temperature Condensing Coil - Finned stainless steel condensation coil with Copeland R404A refrigeration operating to approximately -20F thus broadening the height of the solvent flash-off dwell zone for enhanced solvent containment.
  • Foot Operated Spray Lance System - Mag-drive pump with distillate spray reservoir with Vapor Up Safety Control which requires presence of vapor to permit operation of spray wand.
  • High Volume Condensate Water Separator - feeding spray reservoir
  • Digital Display Safety Control Panel - including HTC, LTC, SVC, VU, RT
  • WATLOW Temperature Safety Limit Controls - Digital display on Control Panel; tem-perature set point as well as actual temperature – SVC (Safety Vapor Control), HTC (High Temperature Control), LTC (Liquid Temperature Control) and RT (Refrigeration Temperature Control)
  • Low-Level Float Safety System - Ensures the minimum amount of solvent in boil sump for proper system operation.
  • Comprehensive Indicator Light System on Control Panel - Includes solvent low level float fault indicator lights (for easy identification of operating fault conditions). “Spray Ready” indicator light and zero coil “Defrost” indicator light, illuminated on/off switches for easy identification of system condition “Heat”, “Filtration”, Main Power”, “Refrigeration” and “Low-Temp Refrigeration”.
  • Horizontal Slide Lid - for solvent containment. Optional power roll-top available.
  • Casters - for easy movement.
  • Simple In & Out Electric Immersion Heater - “Screw-In” Type Elements for easy replacement.
  • Two Sump Access Clean-Out Doors - Boil Sump access for ease of maintenance though the clean-out door rather than over the tank top
  • One (1) stainless steel workbasket
  • Comprehensive 1-Year Manufacturer’s Warranty
  • ULTRA™ VS-4012 LE Operator’s Manual

ULTRA™ VS-4012 LE Options

Optional vertical BHS for vapor degreasing equipment
Optional Vertical Basket Handling System for loads up to 35 lbs.

ULTRA™ VS-4012 LE: Compatible with Non-Flammable Solvents

  • Simple Change over - The ULTRA™ VS-4012 LE is engineered to be compatible with a variety of solvents and in most cases a simple clean out and change of temperature settings is all that is required.
  • 120% Freeboard — helps with vapor containment - so using chlorinated solvents like TCE, TCA, MCL and PERC is still possible.
  • Sub-Zero refrigeration coil - in addition to the primary refrigeration system, makes using brominated solvents like GenTech™, EnTron™ & EnTron-Aero™ or fluorinated solvents such as AeroTron™ an economical alternative.
  • Manual Slide-Lid - provides additional solvent containment for the new generation of fluorinated solvents like AeroTron™ and helps reduce evaporation.
