Vapor Degreasing 101: What Is It? And What Are the Benefits?

Vapor degreasing is a powerful, efficient cleaning and degreasing process that in a matter of seconds removes contaminants like machining oils, cutting fluids, waxes, flux and many more via "solvent cleaning". Many industries from aerospace companies to metal fabricators use vapor degreasing to precision clean metal and machined parts. Read more or give us a call at 847.640.8923.

Time to Replace nPB (n propyl bromide)

It is time to replace your nPB (n propyl bromide) vapor degreasing solvent with AeroTron™-100, the next generation solvent that has significant benefits beyond having a TLV of 150 ppm (nPB is at .1 ppm). AeroTron™-100 is highly stable and does not need boosting or bath testing. Read more or give us a call at 847.640.8923.

Advantages of Solvent Cleaning Over Aqueous Cleaning

Here are some considerations if you are investigating solvent-based vapor degreasing. Solvent-based vapor degreasing is an advantageous cleaning process compared to aqueous (water-based) cleaning.

Cleaning Flux off PCB (Printed Circuit Board)

Vapor degreasing is an efficient, comprehensive way to remove flux residue from printed circuit boards (PCB). This video demonstrates how AeroTron™-100 is used to clean kester RMA flux using a combination of vapor cleaning, spray cleaning and immersion cleaning in Reliance ULTRA™ Vapor Degreasing System.

The Benefits of Vapor Degreasing

Consistent part cleanliness is one of the major reasons many companies choose vapor degreasing. This video provides an overview of the key benefits of vapor degreasing.

Vapor Degreasing Spray Manifold Demo

ULTRA™ vapor degreaser engineered with spray manifolds for added cleaning capacity in a vapor with spray, vapor degreasing system.

Cleaning Wax from Glass

Cleaning glass part of wax with AeroTron™ vapor degreasing solvent which is an nPB replacement solvent. Fast, efficient vapor cleaning removes wax and other organic contaminants. AeroTron™ has superior cleaning power and excellent H&S profile.

Cleaning Thousands of Small Parts

AeroTron™ in the ULTRA™ vapor degreaser equipped with ultrasonics completely cleaned and dried the parts in two minutes.

Cleaning Polishing Abrasive from Brass

Video demonstrations how ultrasonics can be used to quickly clean polishing abrasive from brass.

Removing Drawing Oil from Stainless Tube

Vapor Degreasing demonstration of a stainless-steel tube covered in drawing oil. Completely cleaned in 10 seconds in the vapor zone of the ULTRA™ Vapor Degreasing System.

Cleaning Bearing Grease from Ball Bearings

Vapor degreasing in ultrasonics is a powerful process for removing bearing grease and other heavy greases from machined parts. This cleaning demonstration shows a ball bearing being cleaned of a significant amount of bearing grease.

Asphalt Extraction from Shingle

AeroTron™ can be used to dissolve tar & bitumen from shingles and other asphalt substrates quickly. AeroTron™ is used by DOTs instead of nPB & TCE.

Removing Abrasive From Badges - Validation & Sample Part Cleaning

Difficulty removing polishing abrasive with wiping because of the deep grooves in the badge. AeroTron™ in the ULTRA™ vapor degreaser equipped with ultrasonics removed abrasive quickly and completely. Reliance provides validation and test part cleaning services.

Cleaning ID and OD of Metal Parts

Ultrasonic vapor degreasing is excellent for cleaning the inner dimensions (ID) of a part as well as the OD (outer dimensions) of parts. These parts are cleaned in AeroTron™-100 vapor degreasing solvent in a Reliance ULTRA™ Vapor Degreasing System.

Cleaning Tackified Rust Preventative from Metal Tube

Vapor degreasing is excellent for cleaning the many contaminants (like rust preventative) from a variety of substrates (metal tubes). These parts are cleaned in AeroTron™-100 vapor degreasing solvent in a Reliance ULTRA™ Vapor Degreasing System.

Cleaning Grease & Oil from Aluminum Manifolds

Vapor degreasing is excellent for cleaning the many contaminants (like machining oils) from a variety of substrates (aluminum, brass, stainless steel). Ultrasonic vapor degreasing is exceptional at cleaning complex geometries and blind holes. These aluminum manifolds are cleaned in AeroTron™-100 vapor degreasing solvent in a Reliance ULTRA™ Vapor Degreasing System.

The Power of Ultrasonics in ULTRA™ 2012 LE

Ultrasonics shown here on the ULTRA™ 2012 LE enhance the vapor degreasing process. Ultrasonic vapor degreasing penetrates blind holes and enhances cleaning of difficult contaminants.

Medical Device Cleaning

Cleaning medical devices and instruments requires precision removal of contaminants such as machining oils, greases and other production contaminants from metal-machined parts. Vapor degreasing is a powerful and effective way to clean implant devices such as screws, plates, and joints as well as surgical instruments made of titanium, stainless steel and ceramic. READ MORE
