ProSolv vapour degreasing solvent

High performance vapour degreasing solvent blend lowers the cost of critical vapour degreasing and cleaning

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 will require authorisation for use as metal cleaners after July 2020. If you are using vapour degreasing solvents based on any of these solvents EnviroTech 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 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.

ProSolv® unlike chlorinated and other halogenated hydrocarbons solvents, such as trichloroethylene, can be used for manual cleaning in a suitably ventilated area. Typical applications are high performance critical cleaning at lower cost than other volatile solvent cleaners. Vapour degreasing for medical, aerospace, optics, oxygen equipment service, high vacuum components and electronics.

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. An azeotropic blend which can be 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.

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.

ProSolv® is simple to install in any standard machine for vapour and vapour liquid degreasing. It 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 environmentally friendly 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). Compatible with all metals.

Manufactured in UK with excellent customer service, technical support and training from qualified distributors throughout Europe.

Corrosion control for extreme conditions

Preventing disaster with corrosion control – lt is clear that the use of SuperCORR A for corrosion control can bring financial savings in reduced maintenance and replacement costs and more importantly greater safety.

Most people associate corrosion control with rust, which only happens in things made of ferrous metals such as steel girders, ships, iron pipes, steel reinforcement rods, and steel tanks and is the reason metals deteriorate and fail. Ferrous and non-ferrous metals corrode on contact with both fresh and saltwater as well as water vapour. They will also corrode when they come into contact with chemicals, liquid acids as well as acidic vapours, salts and bases, and bacteria.

Corrosion is also a problem in electronics from circuit breakers and contactors to wire bond connectors and soldered components on a printed circuit board. Electrical connectors and plugs are very prone to corrosion as well as non-ferrous metals and alloys such as copper and aluminium. For purposes here, corrosion can be defined as a chemical or electrochemical reaction between a material, usually a metal, and its environment that produces a deterioration of the material and its properties.

Corrosion is an increasingly serious and costly problem that can lead to plant and equipment failures which range from being an annoyance to being catastrophic. Failures caused by corrosion could and do lead to a direct failure of a component which could affect the entire system and can not only be very expensive in terms of down time to repair or replace plant and equipment, but can also prove to be very costly in loss of productivity but to human life.

Preventing disaster with corrosion control – Electrical component failure

If an electrical component fails that affects your car that is just an annoyance and can be repaired fairly inexpensively and if you’re driving the car rolls to a stop and you get out. However, if an electrical system failed because of a corroded electrical contact in a control circuit which caused another electrical failure in the master fuel control system on an airliner at 30,000 feet with 250 people on board that could prove to be catastrophic. While the electrical contacts in both cases failed due to corrosion both failures could very well have been prevented by using SuperCORR A in a Corrosion Prevention Program incorporated into all routine maintenance programs.

“Self-healing” ultra-thin film barrier

It is much simpler and a lot less costly to prevent corrosion than to repair or replace the damaged equipment or component that failed because of corrosion. The photographs show the effects of protecting metal surfaces and components in extreme condition with a SuperCORR A aerosol.

SuperCORR A is a non-conductive, non- flammable, hydrophobic, ultra-thin film lubricant and corrosion preventive compound. It is a “self-healing” ultra-thin coating that lubricates and protects metals, motors, electrical and electronic components from moisture, salts, chlorides, acids, and oxidation.

Corrosion of electrical components is very prevalent problem and one that can be prevented. Preventing moisture from coming in to contact with the electrical components is the key. An ultra-thin film of SuperCORR A will not only prevent moisture from coming in to contact but will displace moisture that is there already.

SuperCORR A is hydrophobic, that is it repels water and forms a “self-healing” ultra-thin film barrier that prevents moisture from coming into contact with the coated electronic components.

SuperCORR A For Aircraft Corrosion Protection

SuperCORR A lubricant spray with anti- corrosion properties meets the Mil-L- 87177A specification for aircraft maintenance for USAF.

The effects of using SuperCORR A, a corrosion-inhibitive lubricant spray, which meets the requirements of Mil-L-87177A, are reported in detail in this paper by Scott Dotson in a USAF study for aircraft reliability and maintenance. SuperCORR A can be safely used with all metals and plastics and other materials of construction. The dry film is self-healing and can be used for electrical and mechanical maintenance to improve reliability and reduce failures in use due to corrosion.
