Selection of Innovative Cleaning Processes

Here you can access a small selection of processes from our Cleantool database, which may be of special interest to you.

BIO Cleaning processes using microorganisms to break down the dirts. D 116 Biological cleaning
D 124 Bio wash stand
Ester Cleaning processes using fatty acid esters based on vegetable oils.

D 016 Cleaning during repair and maintenance with esters on a wash stand
D 122 Cleaning of driving shafts from Molykote with esters

D 006 Manual removal of drawing oils and pastes from tools with esters

Vibration High quality cleaning of components only by vibration and exhausting without any chemicals. D 108 Cleaning of worm wheels by vibration before fitting
D 109 Cleaning of motorcycle crank shafts by vibration integrated in production line
Laser Laser vaporize the soils, thus substitute chemicals and save time. D 110 Laser cleaning of vulcanising tools and moulds
D 112 Laser cleaning of brake linings before powder coating (integrated in production line)
Water Many cleaning problems in workshops can be solved by using water only.  DK 001 Cleaning with demineralised water
D 089 Cleaning of reels from die cutting by high pressure water jet integrated in line
Breaks Cleaning of breaks with a hot water washer. A recommendable alternative to the commonly employed very volatile hydro carbons. D 078 Breakcleaning
Brushes Cleaning without chemicals.  D 120 Cleaning of waver frames with brushing machines
D 093 Deburring and structuring of metal strips in a brushing equipment
CO2 Cleaning processes using dry ice.   D 009 Blasting of ship’s hull using CO2 ice pellets
D 107 Cleaning of spot welding robots with CO2 pellets
Blowing Cleaning processes by blowing off dirt from components.  D 102 Dry intermediate cleaning by recirculation-air blow system
Plasma Plasma can be utilized under vacuum but also under normal conditions D 049 Plasma cleaning for submarine purposes
D 092 Vacuum-free plasma cleaning/activation 
MPC Micro Phase Cleaning System, water based mixture of polar and non-polar components D 127 Jet engine parts micro phase cleaning to allow crack detection
Alcohols Modified alcohols can substitute halogenated agents. They have a very long service life. D 100 Cleaning of small turned items in bulk before vacuum hardening or nickel plating
D 117 Cleaning for nitriding (A: main process)
