Vapor Degreasing

Vapor Degreasing

Vapor degreasing is a very efficient and cost-effective way for dissolving contaminants on a variety of work pieces. Compared with traditional degreasing methods, Enviro Tech’s process is safer and more streamlined. In short, it works like this:

  1. EnSolv®, our patented n-propyl bromide-based solvent, is heated to a vapor, which envelops the solid parts that are suspended in the vapor zone.
  2. After the vapor is cooled, any dirt and contaminants are washed from the part as EnSolv condenses and is drained back into the vapor degreasing equipment.

EnSolv® Solvent for Vapor Degreasing

EnSolv is a stabilized n-propyl bromide-based vapor degreasing solvent that replaces several vapor degreasing chemicals: trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PERC) and 1,1,1-trichloroethane. EnSolv is compatible with all metals and many plastics and other materials typically cleaned in vapor degreasers.

Our EnSolv® degreaser is a patented, azeotropic mixture that can be distilled and reused through numerous cycles before it needs to be replaced. Although Enviro Tech offers a stabilizer booster in 5-gallon pails and 55-gallon drums, the synergistic action of EnSolv® 5408’s patented stabilizer package typically eliminates the need to add stabilizers to maintain the integrity of the degreasing solvent through normal use.
