Precision Cleaning

The Art of Precision Cleaning

Sustainable and Economic Technology: Precision Cleaning

Precision cleaning is a surface treatment process that removes contaminants from a surface at a micro-level. Failure to remove contamination at the micro-level can impact product reliability and performance.

Surface Tension of Cleaning Agents

Surface Tension

Solvents have much less surface tension than detergents, which in turn offers high cleaning power. Lower surface tension offers higher wetting power, which allows solvents to deep clean in micro areas, such as blind holes, or under surface mounted components.

Concept of Vapour Degreasing

In a basic configuration, there are 2 sumps inside a vapour degreaser. The first sump boils the solvent and creates the vapour phase. Then, cooling coils catch pure vapour and condensate back to the rinsing sump through a water separator.

With this method, the rinsing sump remains clean, meaning that the vapour degreaser is actually recycling solvent while it is running. Ultrasonic generators can be attached to both sumps to give additional agitation.

Benefits of Vapour Degreasing

– Better cleaning results
– Shorter process time (typical dry-to-dry cycle within minutes)
– No cross-contamination
– Lower energy usage
– Less waste disposal costs
– No water consumption
– Lowest possible post-cleaning residue

What about the Environment?

In the early 1990s, with the implementation of the Montreal Protocol, aqueous systems were favoured to eliminate ozone-depleting solvents such as CFC-113, HCFC-141b and 1,1,1-trichloroethane.

New technologies, such as non-ozone depleting and VOC-free solvents are now available, helping to protect our water usage and the ozone layer.

Together with the improvements in equipment design, vapour degreasing is a much more environmentally friendly process.

Hetech Logo

“Hetech needed to implement Class 3 inspection utilising automated AOI to expand our go-to-market capabilities. After looking into systems available this led us to select and implement the Viscom S3088UltraBlue 2D/3D AOI system. Hetech now can provide a stronger, more efficient production process for our customers. The support provided by ONBoard Solutions and Viscom Support has been well received and the system is now an integral part of our SMT process verification strategy and we have been satisfied with the investment.”

-David Edington, Hetech Director

sterilant actril minncare surface disinfection sporicide bacteria hospital pharma life science onboard solutions australia

Hospital Grade Disinfection

Minntech, a leading manufacturer in disinfection technology, offers two powerful sporicides through Mar Cor Purification. Minncare® Cold Sterilant is a concentrated disinfectant and sterilant. Actril® Cold Sterilant is a Ready-To-Use disinfectant and sterilant with no dilution required. Both are proven effective for use against spores, bacteria, viruses and molds on hard surfaces commonly found in biopharmaceutical facilities. Surfaces made from non-porous materials such as plastics, stainless steel or glass can be disinfected using either product.

Superior Biocidal Activity: Effective Against Spores, Bacteria, Viruses and Other Organisms

Minncare Cold Sterilant is a powerful disinfectant containing a proprietary mixture of 4.5% peracetic acid and 22.0% hydrogen perox­ide. It is effective against a broad spectrum of organisms, including bacterial spores, fungal spores, bacteria, mycobacteria, yeast, molds and viruses.

Actril Cold Sterilant is another powerful disinfectant in ready-to-use form containing a proprietary mixture of 0.06% peracetic acid and 1.0% hydrogen peroxide. It too is effective against a broad spectrum of organisms, including bacterial spores, fungal spores, bacteria, mycobacteria, yeast, molds and viruses.

Neither Minncare nor Acrtil are systemic bactericides. Rather, they are powerful oxidizers that attack and break down the organic compo­nents of microorganisms, not just killing them, but destroying their structure. This makes Minncare and Actril some of the fastest acting and most effective disinfectants available. Both Actril and Minncare Cold Sterilants are registered with the US EPA as disinfectants and sterilants. Minncare has also been successfully tested according to European Norms for sporicidal, bactericidal, mycobactericidal, fungi­cidal and virucidal activity.

Safe, with No Toxic Aldehyde Vapors

Minncare and Actril Cold Sterilants protect employees from exposure to toxic aldehyde vapors. Although proper care must be taken when handling concentrated Minncare, in the use-dilution form, no exceptional handling procedures are required. Actril, with its ready-to-use form, requires no mixing and only minimal personal protection for use.

Both Minncare and Actril have been shown safe through extensive testing for toxicity and effects on skin and mucous membranes.

Low Residuals

Minncare and Actril evaporate completely from surfaces, leaving very low residuals. Testing has shown that less than 0.5 ppm of hydrogen peroxide remains on the surface immediately after visible moisture is gone.

Biodegradable with Easy Disposal

Both Actril Cold Sterilant and Minncare Cold Sterilant are biodegradable and will decompose into oxygen, water and acetic acid. They pose no threat to municipal waste treatment plants.*

* Unused Actril and Minncare Cold Sterilants are acidic and require normal neutralization as specified by your state and local regulations. A 1% solution of Minncare Cold Sterilant has a pH of 3.5. Actril has a pH of 1.5 to 2.0.

Vapor Degreasing Solvent Cleaning Process

High tech companies are finding it increasingly difficult to optimize their industrial cleaning process lines due to expanding choices among products and processes, stricter environmental and safety regulations (REACH, VOC, FGAS, etc.), and cost considerations.

Expert chemists at INVENTEC have helped thousands of customers worldwide optimize their precision cleaning processes by applying scientific methods to assist with product and process specification, and evaluating results to validate the achievement of superior results and reduce costs in the safest and most environmentally-friendly manner possible.

Our precision cleaning solutions, therefore, meet the highest requirements.

  • Worker protection, compliance with regulations (F-GAZ, REACH) and brand protection
  • Substitution of toxic and emitting chemicals (PERC, TRI, non CMR…)
  • Industry Homologations (Aero, Auto, Electronics….)
  • Internal client requirements (specification, technical, cost, process, HSEQ, etc…)
  • Materials compatibility
  • Operational studies (space, equipment, energy, flammability..)

GREENWAY™, a new corporate identity and a real opportunity of « green growth » for our customers.

Greenway is a certification that validates a successful eco-design of INVENTEC products or services, verified by a third party such as Bureau Veritas. 1/3 of parameters impacting the environment or safety are improved without degrading the others while maintaining the technical performances. It is part of a continuous improvement that allows us to anticipate the future needs of our customers and the requirements to come.

In the early 1990s with the implementation of the Montreal Protocol,  aqueous systems were favored to eliminate ozone-depleting solvents such as CFC-113, HCFC-141b, and 1,1,1-trichloroethane but, thanks to new technologies a big range of non-ozone depleting solvents are now available. Together with the improvements in equipment design, vapor degreasing is the cheaper and more environmentally friendly process.

The Glove Revolution

Mun is constantly researching and developing new solutions to make the everyday wearing of gloves more comfortable. Their latest innovation is the COATS glove, a worldwide unique glove for nitrile allergies and more wearing comfort. COATS contains a coating of colloidal oatmeal, of which oat beta-glucan is a key component. Studies have shown that it can penetrate the skin to relieve a number of skin irritations and offer additional nutrition for the skin. In addition, beta-glucan acts as a moisturiser, helping the skin to retain water, resulting in a better skin barrier.
