Tiyoda Serec Corp. offers airless vacuum solvent cleaning systems that use almost any distillable cleaning solvent. They have onboard solvent filtration and distillation capabilities, and the vacuum's closed-loop technology keeps solvent emissions to a minimum, the company reports.
The programmable cleaning process can include vapor degreasing, soaking, spray-in vapor or under immersion, ultrasonic cavitation, and rotation. The cleaners use a batch-type cleaning process, with 10- to 20-minute cleaning cycles depending on chamber volume and process requirements.
