Superior Metal Cleaning and Surface Preparation

Features & Benefits


  • UltraVapor penetrates into the pores of metal surface removing microscopic soils.
  • High temperature liquifies oils and greases allowing them to be totally removed from the products surface.
  • Ability to add dosed amounts of environmentally friendly detergents further enhances the cleaning process.
  • Parts emerge clean, dry and immediately ready for further processing.

Consistent Results

  • Proprietary cleaning module ensures UltraVapor is directed to all product surfaces even those with complex shape s ensuring all surfaces are cleaned.
  • With other systems, immersion tanks must be monitored and cleaned of sludge regularly and chemical levels must be closely monitored since cleaning results decline as chemical concentrations change and sludge builds up in the tanks. With a constant flow of UltraVapor this doesn’t occur and the cleanliness of the parts is the same after months of operation as it was on start up.


  • Significantly lower cost of ownership compared to other systems – lower initial capital cost and significantly lower operating costs.
  • Minimal maintenance.
  • Eliminates the costs associated with purchasing, storing and handling hazardous chemicals.
  • Consistent cleanliness results ensure product always meets specification therefore eliminating scrap and preventing costly recalls.
  • Small inline footprint frees up expensive floor space.
  • Eliminates requirement to treat waste water from the cleaning process – in most cases the waste water can be discharged directly to sewer.
  • Contributes to a reduction in compressed air usage.


  • PLC control allows monitoring and control of multiple operating parameters including pressure, temperature, addition of chemicals/detergents, etc
  • 9 chamber design of module allows system to be configured with multiple cleaning, drying and treatment chambers based on product to be cleaned and level of cleanliness required.
  • Supports multiple line speed s up to 200 meters per minute.
  • Profibus interface to manufacturing control systems.
  • Remote monitoring capability (Internet capable).

Easy to use

  • Menu driven touch screen interface.
  • Clam shell style cleaning module makes loading product simple and fast.
  • System alarms are customizable


  • Eliminates the use of hazardous chemicals.
  • Interlocked system for Operator safety.

Environmentally Friendly

  • Eliminate the use of acids, TCE, VOC’s, solvents.
  • Optional systems allow for the capture and reuse of lubricating oils
