What Is The Process?

A cleaning solvent is heated to its boiling point and the vapour produced to clean the work piece is prevented from being lost out of the tank by a series of finned coils situated on the inner wall of the tank
These coils are supplied with cooling water as the vapour rises it passes over the coils where it is cooled and condenses back to its liquid state. This limits the vapour level between the liquid and the coils to form the working area.

The work to be degreased is then lowered into the vapour. The work piece being at ambient temperature cause the solvent vapour to condense and any grease on the work is dissolved by the solvent and runs back to the tank.

There are three types of heating used, electric, gas and steam.

Vapour Degreasing Application Considerations

  • How is the process currently cooled?
  • Are the cooling cooling within the existing tank?
  • What is the method of heating?
  • If electric, what is the KW rating of the heaters?
  • If gas, what is the gas consumption?
  • If steam, what is the rated heat input?
  • What is the cooling water temperature required?

Why Is Cooling Required For The Vapour Degreasing Process?

The coils need cooling water to condense the degreasing vapour back to liquid.

What Must The Cooling System Include?

Manual By-Pass on chiller circuit; it is likely the water flow could change during operation so it if important the chiller always has its require minimum flow.
