Precision cleaning refers to the use of chemicals, detergents and solvents to clean industrial metal components. This is vital to ensure that the parts in question remain fit for purpose and free of resulting corrosion and damage.
Precision cleaning is used within a multitude of industries, including aerospace, marine, automotive and medical/scientific. It ensures that components are free of lubricants and oils used during the manufacturing process, which could inhibit their function. Parts are sprayed with or soaked in the applicable chemical or detergent to remove the oils, along with fingerprints, rust, ink and scale/deposits.
Materials that commonly undergo industrial precision cleaning include stainless steel, brass, copper, zinc and aluminium.
