Trichloroethylene is banned by the EU and will not be available after 21 April 2016 – replace it now with EnSolv the simple “drop in” replacement for vapour degreasing

Still using trichloroethylene for vapour degreasing? It is now past the final EU “sunset date” on 21 April 2016 when use of this solvent will be illegal without specific authorisation and unless very expensive fully enclosed vacuum equipment is installed. Exemptions are unlikely if an alternative is available.

We have the answer – EnSolv -is a simple “drop in” replacement for trichloroethylene. It is stable, economical, a superb vapour degreaser operating at 70˚C which means less energy, easier handling, faster throughput and lower usage. Very safe for operators EnSolv is a simple drop in replacement using existing equipment which needs no new skills – resetting the thermostats is all that’s necessary.

Alternative solvents based on fluorocarbons are available but are not “drop in” replacements and are very expensive. The equipment needed to use these materials is not available off the shelf with equipment manufacturers quoting months for delivery.

EnSolv is supplied and serviced by an experienced, expert group of distributors, fully trained to carry out inspections of your equipment and processes and advise  and support the changeover which can be done in hours,

A visit to your works by a member of our Trichloroethylene Substitution Team to survey report and process samples to validate cleaning and compatibility with soils, oils and metals of construction its completely free and without obligation. You are also welcome to personally visit our Technical Centre, close to Stansted Airport, to test samples yourself and discuss your needs with our experts.

An alternative to vapour degreasing is water based cleaning systems. EnviroTech Surface Technologies can supply suitable materials for appropriate needs where the next part of the process, anodising or electroplating are water based or where use of solvent is not compatible with the materials used in manufacturing of components. But the installation costs, use of multi tanks taking up space which could be used for more productive and profitable uses, disposal of water and energy costs for drying are not economical when compared to simple substitution, by EnSolv using existing equipment.

We have the all facts for you to consider before you make the commitment. Call on the number below or go to our website  www.ensolv-europe.com  and book a free visit by one of the experts from our Trichloroethylene Substitution Team or arrange an appointment to meet us at our Technical Centre.
