ProSolv 5408e is soft on the environment and safer for users. High performance, improved cleaning, lower costs. Sustainable and secure for future use as your forever solvent.

COMPONENT CLEANING FOR OXYGEN SERVICE

Cleaning for oxygen service is best defined as the removal of combustible contaminants from the surface of any equipment or system in oxygen service. Essentially, any component that may encounter an oxygen rich environment.

The combustible contaminants include organic and inorganic substances such as hydrocarbon material for example oils and greases, paper, fibre, dust, and soils. If these contaminants are not removed properly, in a worst-case scenario, this can cause combustion or explosion in an oxygen atmosphere or at the least rejection of the product due to unacceptable product purity.

Oxygen is not flammable, but it supports combustion. Oxygen can react with most materials. The higher the oxygen content and/or pressure in a system the more vigorous the combustion and the lower the ignition temperature required. Materials that do not normally ignite in air will burn and may explode in an oxygen rich environment. In addition, the oxygen rich environment will give rise to a higher flame temperatures and combustion velocity with potentially devastating consequences.

The recognition of oxygen’s reactivity has led to stringent requirements regarding the cleanliness of equipment in oxygen service. Strict guidelines exist to ensure that care must be taken in the selection of equipment including all materials and components, which all need to be oxygen compatible. They must also be free from combustible contaminants as described above.

Special consideration must be given to any cleaning processes employed in the manufacture and maintenance of all components of oxygen service systems. There are many options depending on the type of contaminants from aqueous to semi aqueous and blasting systems to remove welding slag etc. These are all referenced in the publications in the addendum below and we refer particularly in this article to the European Industrial Gases Assn (EIGA) DOC 32 4.3.1.2 Solvent Cleaning.

Solvent cleaning offers huge benefits in cleaning processes. ProSolv 5408e  our NEW sustainable solvent is especially relevant for this use. Energy saving, totally recyclable, environment friendly zero ODP and GWP and safe for operators. High output, very fast process times, non-flammable, an excellent solvent for all the oils, greases and other organics which need to be removed after manufacturing processes and it is compatible with all types of metals and equipment, from immersion cleaning in simple multi tank counter current processes to integrated vapour and vapour liquid tanks with and without ultrasonics. EnviroTech Europe have extensive partnerships with equipment manufacturers through our distributors worldwide and information and advice on solvents and solvent systems and which need to be considered Some of these are discussed below.

Specific consideration must be given to the following:
· Cleaning standard to be achieved (how clean is clean?)
· Cleaning procedure
· Solvent cleaner to be used.
· Surface properties of the parts to be cleaned.
· Shape and geometry of the material
· Types and amounts of contaminants.
· The degree of automation required.

The size and capacity of the equipment is determined by:

  • The size of the material or components to be cleaned.
  • The required throughput.

Your starting point should be the cleaning standard and procedure. Solvent cleaning and solvent vapour phase cleaning of components consists of the removal of contaminants by immersion in the solvent, possibly with the addition of ultrasonic agitation and the action of continued condensation of solvent vapour on the component surfaces. The procedure requires that the oxygen equipment, system or component is colder than the solvent boiling point. This allows the vapour to condense on the components and perform a final rinse.

The major significant advantage of solvent cleaning is that vapourised solvent is always pure, and the contaminants remain in the boiling liquid section which requires only periodic cleaning out, thus causing a reduction in the frequency of system downtime.

The effectiveness of a particular cleaning agent depends upon the method by which it is used, the nature and type of the contaminants and the characteristics of the article being cleaned, such as size, shape, and material. Final evaluation of the cleaning agent should include testing of actual products and production processes.

All equipment must, together with the cleaning chemistry, comply as a minimum with current legislation for health, safety and environment. The efficiency is controlled by utilising typical samples, written procedures and requested criteria for cleanliness.

INDUSTRY STANDARDS FOR CLEANING OF EQUIPMENT AND COMPONENTS

As part of the programme of worldwide harmonisation of industry standards, the European Industrial Gases Association, (EIGA) has published EIGA Doc 33-18, Cleaning of Equipment for Oxygen Service. The publication was developed from the Compressed Gas Association Document G-4.1 Cleaning Equipment for Oxygen Service and the EIGA Document, Doc 33 Cleaning of Equipment for Oxygen Service.  For information see EIGA’s website.

Aquus CL-One Concentrated all-purpose cleaner

Aquus CL-One all-purpose cleaner

Aquus® CL-One concentrated all-purpose cleaner – Water based cleaning and protection of metal surfaces prior to powder coating or painting.

Aquus CL-One is an excellent all-purpose cleaning system  for the cleaning and protection of mild steel and ferrous metal parts which need powder coating or painting immediately or when it is necessary to store unpainted for limited periods. Any cleaning system can be used – hand wiping, dip tanks, ultrasonics or pressure washing.

Uncleaned metal components or fabrications before cleaning are protected by process oils and grease on the metal guarding the surfaces from changes in humidity. Once removed using conventional water-based cleaners flash rusting can occur very quickly during drying.

The unique Aquus CL-One formulation however leaves an invisible barrier on the metal surfaces, after the cleaning process, providing extended corrosion protection during storage, fabrication, or assembly before finishing. The barrier film can be powder coated or painted over without additional rinsing and without affecting adhesion of the coatings.

General purpose cleaning

Aquus CL-One is also an excellent general-purpose concentrated surfactant system containing no solvents which exhibits a unique combination of characteristics that are not found in other commercially available cleaning processes biodegradable, non-flammable, non-toxic at used concentrations and, unlike almost all other surfactant systems, is both hydrophilic (water attracting) and oleophobic (oil-repelling).

Aquus CL-One offers exceptional emulsion-breaking capability in addition to its unusual combination of properties that makes it so attractive for a wide range of industrial applications. In addition to the general cleaner Aquus CL-One, other concentrated cleaners within the range are formulated to offer cleaning solutions for industry specific applications.

One cleaner for all applications

One cleaner for all applications reduces costs by removing the need for multiple cleaning products usually needed to deal with a wide range of soils or contaminants.  Safe for the environment and users, containing no solvents is biodegradable within 30 days. Typical with only one product for all cleaning applications incorrect selection or dangerous uses can be avoided.

Corrosion protection for unpainted metal in highly corrosive environments

Tests demonstrate the amazing properties of SuperCORR A corrosion protection spray to protect unpainted metal surfaces from corrosion

corrosion protection

These are photographs of 3 unpainted copper components that were exposed for a month next to the “digester” at a Pulp and Paper Mill. The part marked #1 was the control and not sprayed with SuperCORR A corrosion protection spray.   Half of part marked #2 was sprayed with SuperCORR A and half left uncoated. Component #3 was completely treated with SuperCORR A. The main atmospheric corrosion was from hydrogen sulphide (H2S) gas, produced during the cellulose digestion process, which combines with the atmospheric humidity to form a mild acid. Any unpainted or untreated metal surface, copper, brass, mild steel or alloys of zinc and manganese or magnesium will be corroded by this acid when it condenses on the metal surfaces.

This is especially important in electrical motors and power control systems where these metals are used as conductors or switch contacts on printed circuit tracks and all types of connectors which although sealed in control panels will be exposed whenever the boxes are opened or contactors operated and connectors plugged and unplugged.  In most cases it is not possible to paint these conductive surfaces or apply other forms of protection without loss of conductivity leading to arcing or supply failures.

These tests demonstrate the amazing properties of SuperCORR A to protect unpainted surfaces from acidic corrosion. As an example, copper and aluminium condensers on water coolers usually last about a month in the acidic environment of pulp production facilities because the corrosive atmosphere around the plant corrodes the metal surfaces on fins and connections.

A trial was set up by the works engineering department at the plant who sprayed a new condenser with an aerosol of SuperCORR A corrosion protection spray. This applies a very thin protective film of a proprietary formulation containing extremely long-lasting anticorrosion inhibitors, which also give superior lubrication coefficients and protect components against moisture.  This unique, water displacing lubricant, with synthetic corrosion prevention compounds is tested and proven non-flammable and environmentally friendly without sulphates, chlorides, or other halogens

After a few months the treated condenser showed so little signs of corrosion that further controlled trials were set up to test for long term protection of untreated metal in this extremely corrosive environment experienced in paper and pulp mills, water processing plants and oil drilling rigs.

ProSolv®5408e cleaning solvent for flushing refrigeration pipeline systems

cleaning solvent for flushing refrigeration pipeline systems

Cleaning solvent for flushing refrigeration pipeline systems

Concerns connected with the challenging environmental profile of traditional refrigerant gases have led to changes in legislation which are a driving factor in phase-outs and bans on the use of some gases to remove the older materials typically with high ozone depletion (ODP) and global warming potential (GWP).  Systems can be replaced or refurbished with new models using compressors able to use more sustainable and acceptable gases. The evolving trend to newer refrigerants continues as the chemistries develop. The refrigerant R-22, which itself was an improvement over earlier refrigerants, is phased out and replaced with R-410a and other alternatives based on HFOs are being marketed.

Retrofitting of current refrigeration systems to accommodate the new developments is not straightforward as most refrigerant gases are not cross-compatible, so the necessity to completely remove all traces of the older versions from the system, including refrigerant lines is essential.

Of course, where possible it’s best simply to replace existing lines with new ones. However, it’s not always possible to do this cost-effectively, especially when the old piping runs under floors or through walls. In such cases thoroughly flushing existing pipework is especially important because even tiny traces of impurities left in the lines can damage new equipment and lead to compressor failure.

THE PERFECT SOLVENT FOR FLUSH CLEANING REFRIGERATION PIPEWORK

Your first step to proper pipework flushing is to select the right solvent. The solvent you choose must be highly effective at dissolving oil grease and other contaminants, to ensure that all residue is removed from the pipes and must be sustainable, environmentally friendly and comply with current legislation.

ProSolv 5408e is the ideal solution to this problem with a profile of properties and advantages making it perfect as your solvent of choice for refrigerant pipeline flushing.

No flash point Non flammable liquid.
High specific gravity gives a high soil suspension loading.
High solvency strength with a KB value of 98.
Powerful cleaning agent that can flush lines fast, dissolving oil and grease releasing soils from the inner surfaces of pipelines and fittings
Volatile for fast evaporation. Removing ALL solvent from the pipework after flushing is vital, very volatile so evaporates fast.
Environmentally responsible. ProSolv 5408e is sustainable and kind to the environment with very low global warming potential, zero ozone depleting potential (ODP).
Safe for operators when user conditions are followed.
Economical as it is easily distilled for reuse. No testing or stabilisation required.

PROCEDURE FOR FLUSH CLEANING REFRIGERANT PIPELINES WITH ProSolv®5408e

Of course, simply replacing old piping is the only way to be 100 percent sure that your lines are clean. But in retrofit situations where complete replacement is not possible, flushing the lines with ProSolv 5408e solvent is the best alternative solution for the protection and long working life of your refrigeration system upgrade.

1 – Remove any obstacles. Any equipment and components such as valve, filters and expansion valves that might obstruct the line should be removed prior to the purge.
2 – Pre-flush. This will dislodge any loose debris from the sides of the lines enabling more effective use of the solvent, oil free air or nitrogen at 120 psi is recommended. It’s also good practice to oscillate the pressure to encourage dislodging of debris.
3 – Preparing the pipework. Reducing the length of piping can be more effective due to the pressure loss in long lengths. Section the operation into 15 metre lengths by cutting pipes where necessary. One end of the pipe must be fitted with a connector for the pipe to the nitrogen supply while the exit needs a restrictor valve to allow variable pressures to shock loose particles from internal walls.
IMPORTANT – Flushing with solvent. Refer to ProSolv 5408e Safety Data Sheets for advice on operator protection using solvents.
4 – Safe working. Full PPE with suitable eye protection goggles and gloves must be worn. Solvent fumes are heavier than air and exposure levels can easily be reached working in pits or enclosed spaces. Always institute a ‘buddy system’ and use air fed face masks with attached line.
5 – Delivering solvent. Use a drum pump electric or hand operated with a flexible tube connection for delivering the solvent to the open end of the pipe or tubing to flush the internal surfaces. Using a fresh drum of ProSolv®5408e connect drum pump and the delivery tube to the end of pipe/tube to be cleaned using a pre-fitted screwed or compression fitting.
6 – Drainage and Testing. The drainage end of the pipe or tube should be fitted with a flexible tube into a tank or drain sump allowing samples to be taken in a glass bottle or tube at regular intervals to be sure when no particles or soils are being expelled. The colour of the solvent will change as oil and soluble contaminants are removed and flushing must continue until the flow is totally clear and water white.
7 – Post-flush. ProSolv 5408e solvent is volatile so will dry completely using an oil free airline or nitrogen supply connected to the end of the cleaned pipe/tubing.
8 – A wipe of the pipe/tubing surface at the inlet and outlet using solvent saturated lint free cloth completes the cleaning. If not connected immediately to other parts of the system enclose both ends of cleaned item to prevent recontamination.

Used ProSolv 5408e should not be reused for flushing but can be recovered for reuse by a simple distillation process. Removal from site should use licensed disposal companies.

Aquus CL-One Water Based Cleaner

Concentrated water based cleaner for all applications in manufacturing, engineering and general maintenance.

Aquus CL-One cleaner is a new formulation designed to deal with all cleaning applications encountered in manufacturing and engineering. It reduces time and costs by removing the need for multiple cleaning products usually needed to deal with the challenges presented by the wide range of soils, oils and other contaminants which need to be removed. Safe for the environment and users, contains no solvents and is biodegradable within 30 days. Typical applications in industry are discussed below but many more will be experienced in day-to-day operations. With only one product for all cleaning applications incorrect selection or dangerous uses can be avoided.

Concentrated Aquus CL-One chemistry is activated by water, varying concentration levels allows the most economical solution to be chosen for specific applications from parts cleaning to surface preparations for finishing or heavier soiling on process machines all from one product. Some of the hundreds of applications are discussed below.

PARTS AND COMPONENT CLEANING

Ideally suited for cleaning protective coatings, grease and soils from new or used parts. Aquus CL-One can be used in parts washing equipment or dipping tanks without modifications and leaves no residue after drying. Oil and grease separate from the water and coalesces on the surface of the cleaning solution which can then be skimmed off for recovery and recycling. Precipitated solids free of hydrocarbons can be removed by settlement or in filtration systems. The cleaning solution can be reused continuously within its chemical parameters for efficient and economical use.

GENERAL CLEANING

Aquus CL-One is remarkably efficient removing oils, greases, and accompanying dirt from most surfaces. It can be applied by wiping surfaces, mopping or in rotary floor cleaning machines, low or high-pressure spray. Aquus CL-One is also an effective cleaner in industrial kitchens removing grease and baked on deposits on internal surfaces of ovens and trays. For maintenance of machines, engines etc oil and grease is easily removed pre and post-assembly making inspection and repair easier, quicker and cheaper by returning equipment to use.

PREPARATION FOR PAINTING OR POWDER COATING

Aquus CL-One is an excellent choice for cleaning mild steel and ferrous metal parts which are not painted immediately. Process oils and grease on the parts protect the surfaces from changes in humidity but once removed flash rusting can occur while drying. Aquus CL-One prevents this leaving an invisible barrier on the metal surfaces providing extended corrosion protection during storage, fabrication or assembly before finishing. The barrier film can be painted over without additional rinsing and without affecting adhesion of paint or powder coatings. Any cleaning system can be used hand wiping, dip tanks, ultrasonics or pressure washing.

Corrosion control problems

Corrosion control is a serious problem for industry and governments worldwide.

corrosion inhibitor

Most people associate corrosion 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 salt water as well as water vapor. They will also corrode when they come in contact with chemicals, liquid acids as well as acidic vapors, salts and bases, and bacteria.

Read our article “Corrosion Control Solutions – A Solution To A Costly Problem” for more information about the enormity of the costs involved in failing to prevent corrosion.

Replacements for nPB

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’s not enough and you are using nPB solvent that’s another problem to worry about as its use for vapour degreasing has been banned by the EU since July. Don’t panic it’s not too late to change and comply, as we have “drop in” replacements for nPB 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 has been the market leader in this field worldwide for many years. 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.

Talk to us about whether EnSolv CC-A or ProSolv will be the best choice for your application. Advice, literature, changeover instructions are all available to make the change quickly, easily and at no extra cost of usage.

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.

Alternatives to nPB

nPB solvent for vapour degreasing is banned from July 2020 – EnviroTech Europe has low cost, “drop-in” alternatives to nPB.

replace n-Propyl Bromide

nPB solvent for vapour degreasing is banned from July 2020 – EnviroTech Europe has low cost, “drop-in” alternatives to 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.

Talk to us about whether EnSolv CC-A or ProSolv will be the best choice for your application. Advice, literature, changeover instructions are all available to make the change quickly, easily and at no extra cost of usage.
