High-precision cleaning is required across a wide range of sectors, including aerospace, defense, medical device manufacturing, pharmaceutical processing, semiconductor / electronics, etc. Cleaning parts and surfaces with solvents is simple, effective and low-cost. Although health & safety and environmental concerns come into play with the use of solvents, this book explores how safe and compliant solvent-based cleaning techniques can be implemented. A key to this is the selection of the right solvent. The author also examines a range of newer 'green' solvent cleaning options. This book supplies both scientific fundamentals and practical guidance, supported by real-world examples. Durkee explans the three principal methods of solvent selection: matching of solubility parameters, reduction of potential for smog formation, and matching of physical properties. He also provides guidance on the safe use of aerosols, wipe-cleaning techniques, solvent stabilization, economics, and many other topics. A compendium of blend rules is included, covering the physical, chemical, and environmental properties of solvents. Three methods explained in detail for substitution of suitable solvents for those unsuitable for any reason. Toxic solvents don't have to be tolerated; this volume explains how to do better. Enables users to make informed judgements about their selection of cleaning solvents for specific applications, including solvent replacement decisions. Explains how to plan and implement solvent cleaning systems that are effective, economical and compliant with regulations.
