High-technology cleaning of metal surfaces.
Does your production process set high quality requirements for the cleanness of metal surfaces? Treatment with super-critical CO2 is a high-quality and environment friendly method. VITO examines whether it is a feasible alternative for your existing cleaning techniques.
Super-critical CO2 quickly and effectively dissolves fats. This makes it an environment-friendly alternative for chlorinated solvents. Manufacturers of high-quality metal components use this technology on a large scale to clean metal surfaces. Further, super-critical CO2 is easy to re-cycle. This enables you to recuperate expensive grinding and greasing products which would otherwise be transported along with the chlorinated solvent. The high diffusion speed of super-critical CO2 also makes the substance extremely suitable for evenly impregnating materials with, for example, dying products.
Advice from audit to implementation
How do you integrate the super-critical CO2-treatment into your existing infrastructure? VITO experts will thoroughly examine your material cleaning installations. They investigate whether a switch to super-critical CO2 is both technically and economically feasible. They will support you during implementation and will carefully follow-up the cleaning process. This guarantees you an optimum, safe and environment-friendly material treatment.
