Envirotech Europe introduce low cost “drop in” replacements for nPB (n-propyl bromide) vapour degreasing solvents.

replace npb

Bad news for your business. Coronavirus, Brexit, redundancies, social distancing reduced cash flow.

If that is not enough and you are using nPB solvent for vapour degreasing that’s another problem to worry about as it cannot be used after 4th July.  Don’t panic it’s not too late to change and comply, as we have “drop in” replacements which are guaranteed to give the same results at no increase in your costs of usage. It is late but we can give you the information to easily make the change in a day without fuss.

You have questions – of course:
How can it be so simple?

The EnSolv range of stabilised nPB based vapour degreasing solvents is the market leader in this field worldwide. EnviroTech Europe, the manufacturers, know this product inside out with hundreds of satisfied users.  We have been fighting the EU authorities for 20 years regarding classification, but with limited resources and the corporate giants with money to lose as EnSolv gained more and more of the market. Money talks so the Commission ignored the evidence and banned nPB for use as a vapour degreasing solvent with the sunset date in July 2020. If you are interested in the history, it is all explained in detail on our website.

With our extensive knowledge of user needs EnviroTech Europe, during the intervening years, have developed new compliant solvent formulations which are simple “drop-in” replacements.

No new equipment needed, guaranteed results and no extra costs to worry about.

We can’t guarantee that more changes will not happen in the future, but you will then have time to evaluate whether the new generation of wonder products which reduce global warming a smidgeon is worth the enormously increased costs.

Improve connector maintenance on portable gas generators

Why using SuperCORR A for connector maintenance on portable gas generators improves electrical supplies in extreme conditions.

connector maintenance
Gas Turbine generators are used for electrical power supplies by extraction industries and manufacturing plants in remote and hostile locations. Dusty and wet environments in deserts, mines, grinding mills, pulp and paper mills and on land or sea drilling rigs for gas and oil production.

Portable generators maintain aircraft services at standings are connected and disconnected many times a day in extreme weather conditions.

These applications and locations test connector seals allowing dust or water to infiltrate. This with the flexing of the connecting cables allows sufficient movement between the metal surfaces of the connecting pins to produce fretting corrosion which reduces, interrupts or produces failures in electrical supply. Regular maintenance of electrical connectors and control systems is vital to be certain of uninterrupted supply.

SuperCORR A is an aerosol lubricant containing corrosion preventive compounds, which, as is the case with all lubricants, can be worn off over time.

A leading manufacturer of connectors tested SuperCORR A to see what the “life” of the lubricant was in a “rub test”. The typical test is 20,000 cycles, i.e. unplug, plug in is one cycle. The test results demonstrated that after 20,000 cycles there were no failures. It was decided to take it one more step and run the same tests for 200,000 cycles. The results again showed no indications of galling or scoring on the connectors at all. The connector looked and tested as good as new. This test was run under clean conditions in a laboratory but demonstrates the effectiveness of the protective lubricant in SuperCORR A.

As it meets Mil- MIL-DTL-87177B (Revised MIL-L-87177A) specifications SuperCORR A is used by the U.S. Air Force to protect the intricate workings of the F-16 Fighter Jet and by the U.S. Navy on the P 3 Orion electronic surveillance aircraft. Commercial aviation aircraft manufacturers recommend it for electrical and close metal mechanical application, especially where flights are in salt fog or high humidity.

Containing extremely long-lasting, proprietary anti-corrosive inhibitors SuperCORR Aprovides a superior lubrication coefficient and protects components against moisture, wear, general and fretting corrosion, surface static electricity, corona, and other electro migration problems. The super thin non-flammable lubricant film is only 7 microns (0.007 mm) thick and is formulated without sulphates, chlorides or halogens to meet the RoHS directive. It is unexcelled in preventing deterioration and contamination on all surfaces of electronic equipment.

Very fast drying environmentally acceptable solvents are used as carriers and propellants which will not affect most plastics, substrates, metals or other materials used in connector manufacture.

The aerosols are supplied with probes allowing access to pins and connector tubes where the low surface tension repels water, dirt dust and metal particles from blind holes and surfaces to produce thoroughly clean holes before a second application applies the lubricant film. Reconnection to the supply with cleaned sections of the connector ensures reliable operation even in the most testing of environments. This easy maintenance from one can of
SuperCORR A allows this essential task to be carried out in any conditions quickly, easily and securely.

Replace n-Propyl bromide with ProSolv vapour degreasing solvent

High performance vapour degreasing solvent, simple “drop-in” replacement for n-Propyl bromide and trichloroethylene.

Vapour degreasing is one of the most widely used cleaning systems in the engineering industry. The most commonly used solvents are based on Trichloroethylene, n-Propyl bromide and other chlorinated solvents which under EU REACH regulations may require authorisation for use as metal cleaners after July 2020. If you are using vapour degreasing solvents based on any of these solvents EnviroTech Europe can offer excellent drop-in replacement products developed from 40 years of experience supplying market leading cleaning solvents to the engineering industries.

ProSolv® is an alternative chemistry developed by EnviroTech Europe to replace chlorinated solvents. It can be used in most existing vapour degreasing equipment and can be used safely for immersion cleaning using ultrasonics, for which it has been optimised. with a high specific gravity and very low surface tension.

Unlike some other chlorinated and halogenated blends such as trichloroethylene, ProSolv® is an excellent choice to replace flammable solvents such as MEK, Acetone, Isopropyl alcohol (IPA) or hydrocarbons where manual wiping or brush cleaning is the preferred method. It is a non-flammable azeotropic blend which can be used for manual cleaning in suitably ventilated areas and recycled by distillation for reuse through many cycles. It is a very stable mixture with no need for monitoring or the need for additives or stabilisers.

In other applications ProSolv® offers a cost-effective alternative for halogenated solvents in formulations for dip, spray or aerosol applications and as a fast-drying carrier solvent for oil, silicones and other lubricants. Simple to install in any standard machine for vapour and vapour liquid degreasing.

ProSolv® is non-flammable (No Flash Point) with high solvency (KB Value 91) with a very low surface tension and low boiling point making it highly productive and economical in use. A very stable azeotrope in use no additives or testing required. Leaves minimal non-volatile residue.

Importantly the ProSolv® formulation is kind to the environment as it contains no hazardous air pollutants and is safe for users. It has zero ozone depletion (ODP) with very low global warming potential (GWP). ProSolv® is compatible with all metals.

Lubricant and corrosion protection spray

SuperCORR A multitasking lubricant and corrosion protection spray solving problems across industry.

Corrosion protection spray

Originally developed to comply with military standards for a lubricant and corrosion protective for the USAF (MIL- DTL- 8717B Type 1 Avionics cleaning and corrosion prevention and control) SuperCORR A is now the industry standard for in service maintenance by military and commercial airlines and MOR facilities worldwide. It is recognised for its unique formulation which contains extremely long-lasting, proprietary anti-corrosive inhibitors providing a superior lubrication coefficient and protecting components against moisture, wear, general and fretting corrosion, surface static electricity, corona, and other electro migration problems. The ultra-thin non-flammable lubricant film is only 7 microns (0.0007 inch) thick and is formulated without sulphates, chlorides or halogens to meet the EU RoHS directive. It is unexcelled in preventing deterioration and contamination on all surfaces of electronic equipment and metal components.

Its use in aircraft is well established for maintenance but major aerospace and turbine manufacturer is currently completing trials with SuperCORR A to protect machined parts in transit and storage, worldwide, under variable temperature and humidity conditions against corrosion during long term storage. The protective film is self-sealing during movement and handling and can be removed before use if necessary.

Amongst other established uses for mercantile lubrication and corrosion protection suppliers of marine maintenance packages, which include SuperCORR A, to ships on docking. These are used for routine lubrication and anticorrosion maintenance in the harsh conditions experienced at sea. The aerosol cans make access to parts easy for the engineering crew in difficult locations on ship. Unpainted mild steel will not rust on exterior surfaces directly exposed to sea water spray for at least 6 months protecting electrical connectors, switches, chains, drive shafts from corrosion while maintaining lubrication on moving surfaces.

In another interesting application SuperCORR A reduces maintenance under extreme conditions to protect the metal edges of the composite blades on wind turbines. These are subject to the continuous corrosive effects of wind, rain and salt laden sea spray which erodes and corrodes the metal. The protective film produced by application of SuperCORR A is impervious to water and lubricates the airflow across the blade edges preventing corrosion of the metal. Safety on these wind turbines where maintenance engineers are working at great height and perilous conditions of exposure to high winds entails reliance on critical fall arrest equipment. Corrosion in the bearings, clutches and wires used in the arrester mechanisms can lead to failure and potentially serious injury or loss of life. SuperCORR A protects against corrosion in these safety critical components.

The oil and gas industries use SuperCORR A as a reliable easily applied protective coating against corrosion of tools and parts in storage and transit. High humidity and wide fluctuations in temperature experienced on oil rigs at sea and on land need the same protection and lubrication  for  critical fall arresters used on wind turbines and in other situations where working at high levels in extreme weather conditions imposes the same risks.

Monitoring systems, electronics. switches and moving surfaces also need protection and SuperCORR A being based on nonorganic lubricants will not attack or degrade the materials used in manufacturing the components but reject water from protected surfaces preventing shorts, and by preventing fretting corrosion ensuring good connections and smooth movement in bearings and chains.

Portable diesel and LP generators are widely used in the oil and gas and mineral extraction industries in remote, hostile environments. Between flights aircraft services are powered by generators during loading and unloading and maintenance.  All these uses require connection and disconnection, often many times a day. Connector seals, when broken, allows water, sand or dust to penetrate and with the flexing of the connector cables allows sufficient movement between the metal surfaces of the connector pins to produce fretting corrosion. A simple spray between connection breaks ejects water and particulates and protects and lubricates the contacts improving reliability of supply.

Building and construction industries offer other unusual uses for SuperCORR A. Unpainted hatches, grilles, and window furniture are galvanised if manufactured in steel and anodised if aluminium or a zinc alloy. These need protection in storage against scratches and once installed exposure to wind and especially acidic rain dulls surfaces and produces unsightly white surface corrosion. An onsite spray with SuperCORR A on completion of the installation protects the surfaces with an invisible film and at the same time applies a lubricant film to hinges and bearings in handles and other moving parts such as window openers  reducing the needs for maintenance often in inaccessible places at high level.

In all forms of transportation from Amtrac trains, DLR and other lightweight rail systems and for protection of transit equipment and services for underground tunnels and systems to motorsport. racing and rally cars, electric cars and on emergency vehicles SuperCORR A is used for protection and lubrication of connectors, electrical systems and switches, mechanical controls during manufacture, assembly and servicing. Haulage is another area where the ability to displace water from exposed contacts can ensure reliable operation in extreme conditions.

The unique combination of properties in one small aerosol can gives maintenance and service engineers a very safe solution to an enormous range of problems.

ProSolv Medical Device Cleaning

Prosolv high performance vapour degreasing solvent for medical device cleaning

Critical cleaning is vital throughout the medical supply industry for safe, successful operations and procedures. Manufacturers of medical instruments, implants and other devices using metals, glass, ceramics and plastics must select a cleaning processes compatible with all these materials of construction, to remove oils and other contaminants from the manufacturing processes. The cleaning system must be proven to be safety critical and to leave no residues on the surfaces of the cleaned parts.

In this short article we discuss the benefits of condensation cleaning with ProSolv® vapour degreasing solvent for medical device cleaning compared to water-based cleaning.

Water based cleaning options

Formulations for water based cleaners use combinations of surfactants to reduce the very high surface tension of water to allow penetration of the cleaning solution into minutes holes and very fine mechanical clearances. The solutions must solubilise oils, greases, cutting fluids, grinding and buffing compounds and remove particulate soils. Biocides are also present in these formulations to ensure no bioburden is carried over from the cleaning process.

After cleaning residues of chemicals must be removed or they may be a source of corrosion when the devices are in use. Multiple rinses in hot and cold de-ionised water using agitation of baskets or carriers or ultrasound to dilute and displace the cleaning liquids retained in minute holes, cavities and trapped between close tolerance metal surfaces.

Continuous production of high-quality deionised rinse water is extremely expensive, but the drying process is even more costly and environmentally challenging. Multiple cleaning and rinse tanks and drying ovens or tunnels need a lot of space and energy. Further controlled conditions are needed to cool parts after drying to prevent condensation of moisture, which can be growth media for bacteria, on the critically clean surfaces, before packing in sterile bags and containers for storage or shipping.

High output water based cleaning equipment can use conveyorised high pressure targeted spray tunnels for automated high-volume production with integrated “blow off” drying and conditioning tunnels.

For smaller scale operations systems are available using baskets in single cell dishwasher type equipment or open tanks. The latter can use manual or automated handling to progress baskets through the cleaning cycle using similar aqueous based chemical formulations with multiple deionised water rinses and a separate drying oven. These systems can process several baskets or carriers at a time so are only suitable for small batch production. In either case long process times will determine the size and complexity of installations.

Compare the complications of water-based processing to the simplicity and speed of vapour degreasing using ProSolv® solvents

Vapour degreasing or more properly condensation cleaning, is a proven process where a non-flammable halogenated solvent, safe for people and the environment is heated in the sump of a tank. Boiling solvent produces a dense vapour which is contained by condensation coils around the inner surfaces at the top of the tank. Solvent condensed on the coils is returned to the sump for reuse in a closed cycle.

Parts to be cleaned at ambient temperature are immersed in the vapour which condenses as solvent on the surfaces of the devices or parts in a continuous stream of perfectly clean solvent until the surfaces reaches vapour temperature when condensation ceases. Vapour degreasing uses only one tank with one liquid. Parts are cleaned, rinsed and dry in 3 to 5 minutes with parts hand hot ready for further processing, storage or packing into sterile packs for shipping.

ProSolv® solvents were developed to provide superior critical cleaning performance for manufacturers of medical devices and equipment. The solvent is stable when used for vapour degreasing or cold dip cleaning and compatible with metals, including titanium, ceramics, glass and most plastics used in producing orthopaedic implants, dental, ophthalmic and surgical tools, lenses etc. ProSolv® is a cost effective and sustainable solution to remove polar and non-polar soils and other contaminants and sets the standard for removal of machining and cutting oils, coolants, greases, grinding, buffing and polishing compounds, while leaving no residue.

Vapour degreasing and dip cleaning with ProSolv® is a very effective steriliser of microbial contaminants. Exposing the microorganisms, which have cell walls made up of organic materials including lipids (Fats), to a powerful solvent is a very efficient disruptor of the cell walls. Once compromised the organism’s inner workings lose this protection and the organism dies reducing the bioburden.

ProSolv® is also an excellent solvent carrier for organic or synthetic medical lubricant. This application for coating needles, cannulas and instruments needs consistent quality and evaporation rate to produce, comfortable, pain free insertion for patients.

In many medical applications oxygen and gas supply systems are needed and cleaning at installation and when extensions of pipework and fittings are added is vital for safety. ProSolv® removes oil and organics leaving residue free, dry surfaces to standards approved by gas supply companies, and is compatible with all metals.

Clearly solvent cleaning and vapour degreasing with ProSolv® is a better choice than water cleaning. Faster throughput, lower costs and sustainability to meet the unique challenges in achieving the high standards demanded for medical device manufacturing.
