Component cleaning

The ultimate finish for your components from the world leaders in wet blasting.

Low-pressure, high volume water washing with appropriate cleaning chemicals is a recognised "solvent cleaning" method. Cleaning may involve anything from nuts and bolts to complete turbine generators. Complexity can vary from a simple spindle to a sophisticated electrical assembly, and materials can include any metal as well as composites.

Component cleaning

With Vapormatt’s bespoke system, you are able to remove a variety of solvents from lightly oiled to heavy grease. You can also involve the removal of rust, scale, carbon, paint, chemical deposits, general dirt and heat discolouration. We incorporate solvents such as water and mineral spirits which are used to remove solvent-soluble foreign matter from the surface of ferrous metals.

Finally, the acceptable finish of the part after cleaning can range from unchanged from the original finish, to lightly etched, or even in some cases, to the removal of the surface skin to a controlled degree.

Vapormatt has the ideal set of characteristics for a cleaning process:

  1. It will simultaneously degrease and remove solid contamination.
  2. It is a searching process which will treat complex surfaces, reach deep holes and the inside surfaces of pipes and tubes.
  3. It will clean and is compatible with all metals, and the widest range of composite materials.
  4. The system does not use strong toxic chemicals or solvents and is environmentally friendly.
  5. The process generates no dust and therefore creates no potential health hazards.
  6. The system is versatile in both size and degree of aggression (from delicate to very powerful).
  7. The system is economical, easy to maintain, and can be operated by unskilled labour.
  8. The ever-present water barrier prevents harsh impact and reduces surface damage.
  9. The water based system allows the incorporation of degreasing compounds, rust or oxide inhibitors, disinfectants, or similar additives.

 Utilising a fully enclosed wet blasting cabinet, an operator can process components without direct contact with the parts or contaminationh. The gauntlet gloves enable the operator to use hand tools to perform disassembly within the cabinet if required; the brightly illuminated machine interior and large viewing window/door assist in this operation. Solvents are applied via a turbo pressure nozzle within the controlled environment of a blast cabinet. Any unacceptable operator exposure to vapours, flammability and explosion risks are all eliminated.
