In the third millennium, we need relief from the inter-fraternity rivalry between aqueous and solvent cleaning. Users also need relief from the complexity and cost of these types of cleaning.
A new process has been developed to protect the environment, to clean parts, and it is simple and low cost to operate as well.
This process (1) effectively cleans small complicated steel parts, (2) allows cleaning of parts on a continuous or batch basis, (3) substitutes the force from ultrasonic transducers for cleaning chemistry, (4) uses DI water with no rust preventives, and (5) allows recovery of water without significant contamination by soils.
