B352R Ultrasonic Vapor Degreaser
An ultrasonic vapor degreaser has two solvent-filled sumps (the boil sump and the cold sump which is filled with clean, distilled condensate solvent and is often used for rinsing). Near the top of the degreaser is a set of cooling coils, that catches the vapor before it escapes from the unit. It cools and condenses it back to its liquid form and flows it back to a clean condensate tank and finally it goes back to the boil sump or the rinse tank. Since oil and grease boil at a higher temperature than for chlorinated solvents, the vapor caused by the now oil mixed solvent, only vaporizes the clean chlorinated solvent not the dirty oil, if the temperature settings are correctly set. Therefore only clean vapor is used to clean parts.
Liquid vapor degreasing with solvent has been an accepted method of precision cleaning for over 50 years. It incorporates washing, rinsing, drying, and solvent reclamation in compact, cost-effective unit. This alone makes it a very attractive process for many production cleaning applications.
Degreasing and the EnvironmentEnvironmental concerns raised in the last decade have changed both the chemistry and hardware technology for degreasing. Solvents have been modified or replaced to eliminate ozone depletion potential and other hazards. Equipment designs and operating processes have been totally re-engineered to reduce solvent losses to near zero. All Branson solvent degreasers meet NESHAP regulations, Environmental Protection Agency directives, and other applicable regulations.
The Solvent AdvantageThere are many benefits provided by solvent degreasing. Key among these are:
A Simple ProcessPerhaps the most attractive aspect of liquid vapor degreasing as a cleaning technology is the simplicity of the process itself:
Solvent CompatibilityBranson's full line of precision ultrasonic vapor degreasers have been designed to operate with a broad range of commercially available solvents. This includes many of the traditional materials like methylene chloride, trichlorethylene, and perchloroethylene. They are also suitable for use with newer solvents like HCFC, HFC, HFE, n-propyl bromide, and others.
