Vapor degreasing is ideal for the aerospace industry. It is a highly effective process for removing contaminants from precision parts (including residual cutting oils and lubrication agents from manufacturing and overhaul processes), ensuring that critical components are clean enough to pass all safety standards. It is also space efficient and energy efficient compared to alternate aviation parts cleaning methods like aqueous immersion. Enviro Tech offers more environmentally friendly alternatives to traditional aerospace cleaners used for vapor degreasing.
EnSolv® 5408 Aerospace Solvent
This product is a Boeing-approved, stabilized n-propyl bromide-based solvent for the replacement of trichloroethylene, perchloroethylene and 1,1,1-trichloroethane in aerospace vapor degreasing.
EnSolv® 5408 is an aerospace cleaner that is listed as an approved material on Boeing’s commercial PSD 6-62 specification for use under BAC 5408 as well as Boeing military spec PS 12020 Rev Y. In addition, EnSolv® 5408 has been approved by other major aerospace organizations, such as Bell Helicopter, Bombardier and many others.
Additionally, EnSolv® 5408 meets Embraer's, a Brazilian Aerospace Conglomerate, NE 40-012 Certification. This means after rigorous testing, EnSolv® 5408 is an approved solvent for their metallic parts cleaning.
EnSolv® 5408 is a patented, azeotropic mixture that can be distilled and reused through numerous cycles before it needs to be replaced. Although Enviro Tech offers stabilizer booster in 5-gallon pails and 55-gallon drums, the synergistic action of EnSolv® 5408’s patented stabilizer package typically precludes the need to ever add stabilizers to maintain the integrity of the solvent through normal use.
EnSolv® 5408 is the only Boeing-approved nPB solvent for vapor degreasing with a maximum boiling temperature above 160˚ F (max. boiling temp of 165˚ F). This higher limit provides an additional level of security, ensuring that the solvent in the vapor degreasing boil sump will never exceed the maximum temperature allowed in the spec due to the buildup of oils and contaminants.
Next 5408 Fluorinated Solvent
This product is a BAC 5408 Boeing-approved, nonflammable, stabilized 1,2 trans dichloroethylene-based solvent. NEXT 5408 boasts exceptionally low human toxicity compared to the vast majority of aerospace solvents on the market today. NEXT 5408 was created for the replacement of trichloroethylene, perchloroethylene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane and n-propyl bromide in aerospace vapor degreasing.
NEXT 5408 is an ASTM D2942 aerospace cleaner that is listed as an approved material on Boeing’s commercial PSD 6-77 specification for use under BAC 5408. NEXT 5408 has therefore been approved for use on primed or painted surfaces per BMS10-11 Type I, BMS10-11 Type II, BMS10-20 Type II, BMS10-79 Type III, BMS10-79 Type II, BMS10-60 Type II and BMS10-10-100.
NEXT 5408’s patented stabilizer package typically precludes the need to ever add stabilizers to maintain the integrity of the solvent through normal use. This patented, azeotropic mixture can be distilled and reused through numerous cycles before it needs to be replaced.
