Why Vapor Degreasing?

Vapor degreasing, the process of cleaning metal parts with non-flammable degreasing solvent vapors, is the most popular and least expensive cleaning method available for use prior to finishing operations such as painting, anodizing, or electro plating. In addition to its acceptance by the finishing industry, the process is also used to clean screw machine products, stampings, castings, and virtually any type of metal part manufactured.

Vapor Engineering manufactures several types of machines. The unique feature of the vapor degreasing process, no matter which machine is used, is that the work is always cleaned with distilled solvent and leaves the machine through a blanket of vapors drying quickly by evaporation before being remove from the machine.

Pollution Control

Public concern about pollution control, to which we subscribe, is something that must be considered when selecting a cleaning system. Vapor degreasing contributes less to environmental pollution than any other cleaning method. Water used for condenser purposes is as pure leaving the machine as it was on entry. Solvent in the exhaust stream has been reduced by more than 90% and oil removed is trapped in the degreaser, not contaminating clean water and sewer systems.

Think Green….“Environmentally Safe Vapor Degreasing”

Consider these facts

  • Modern vapor degreasers are environmentally sound. Machines properly operated and equipped with powered sliding covers, freeboard refrigeration systems and passive exhaust systems reduce solvent emissions over 90%
  • Closed Circuit water chilling eliminates the need for sewers and continuous usage.
  • Vapor degreasing solvents are non-flammable and recyclable.
  • Soil removed in a vapor degreaser never enters the ecosystem. Vapor degreasing is environmentally safe.
  • Vapor degreasers cost less to purchase, operate and maintain than water washing or cold solvent cleaning systems.
  • Finally, lightning on a golf course is far more dangerous than a properly operated vapor degreaser.

Nothing…absolutely, NOTHING, will remove lubricants, grease, shop dirt and other surface contaminants on metal parts better than a vapor degreaser, without the complicated chemistry and disposal problems of contaminated water from aqueous cleaning. Ninety five percent of screw machine products, small stamping and parts being prepared for plating can be made “squeaky clean” with less cost to purchase, operate and maintain than aqueous or cold solvent cleaning.
