DUE TO n-Propyl bromide now being included in Annex 14 of REACH

EnviroTech Europe Ltd (ETE) continue to publish it as historical information and to record changes occurring in legislation which have affected decisions on formulations and equipment used in vapour degreasing - the most effective, quickest, flexible and cheapest cleaning system used in industry.

EnSolv® invented and patented by EnviroTech has been a market leader all over the world for vapour degreasing. It is based on n-bromopropane (nPB) which now cannot be used as a vapour degreaser within the UK or EU without authorisation.

Archived information about EnSolv®  can be found using the Discontinued Products & Resources navigation menu on this page.

Using experience accumulated over 40 years supplying and supporting users of the vapour degreasing process ETE specialists have developed “drop in” alternatives:
ProSolv®, ProSolv5408e®  and EnSolv CC-A® give the same or improved level of performance and economy as the original EnSolv® products.

EnSolv CC-A

EnSolv is the only realistic safe, economical alternative to the carcinogen trichloroethylene for vapour degreasing.

Responding to the increasingly stringent legislation on solvent usage EnviroTech have over the years reacted to the changes and introduced and developed the solvent minimisation programme which gives help and guidance to users in ways to reduce the amount of solvents used in vapour degreasing to comply with the EU Solvents Emission directive. This is achieved by a combination of working with partners to improve equipment, better solvent handling and more efficient use of the vapour degreasing process. Training staff in proper loading of work baskets, correct timing procedures and many more detailed improvements which when combined not just reduce solvent usage but make it safer for the operator and the environment while considerably reducing costs for users. After discussion with many potential distributors to find a partner with the same ethical standards, passion for customer service and training and with the high level of knowledge to service and support our customers we are very pleased to announce Samuel Banner Ltd will be the distributors for EnSolv in the UK from November 2013.
