VAPORMATT APPLICATIONS

 

Extrusion Die Cleaning

 

Extrusion Die Cleaning

 

To reduce the damage caused by soft shot blast cleaning of extrusion dies, Vapormatt have developed a Die Cleaning System using a mixture of water, fine aluminous oxide, and compressed air, which does little or no damage to sharp edges and fine profiles.

In-Line Wire Processing

Cleaning continuous wire / strip and short length rod by the Vapormatt process. A compact special-purpose Vapormatt Machine has been developed to remove heat treatment oxides, and lacquer, oil and grease, from wire, rod and strip. The unit has been designed to fit into the wire drawing or rod production line.

Composite Pre-Treatment To Bonding

To enable successful bonding of like to like composites, and indeed, composites to other normally incompatible materials, Vapormatt have developed - using their Patented Slurry / Air Pumping System, a unique way of surgically cleaning with simultaneous keying of composite surfaces without damage to fibres or the “lay-up” of the composite.

Aircraft Toilet Cleaning

Vapormatt Limited have applied their wet blasting expertise and technology to the difficult task of overhauling aircraft toilet systems and found that dramatic savings in cleaning time can be achieved by using the Vapormatt Process. Improvements to the surface finish of the cleaned parts have also been noted and the bio-hazard exposure risk is greatly reduced.

Peening and Wet Peening

Any part subject to twisting or bending stress is likely to benefit from peening. The process is ideal when applied to irregular shapes where heat treatments may cause distortion. It is ideal for the treatment of fillets, grooves or unsupported edges or anywhere where sudden changes in form occur. (Such changes are commonly noted as fatigue fracture causes).

PCB Conformal Coating Removal

In the Electronics Industry today, circuit boards are extensively tested during production and generally very reliable. However, when failures occur, it has often been thought best to throw away a complete board rather than replace the individual failed component.

Maintenance Cleaning

Whenever equipment is serviced, maintained, reconditioned or repaired, it is necessary to clean it to some extent. In fact the only requirement is often to clean, inspect, and then to re-use or scrap. So cleaning becomes a vital but often overlooked operation.

Small Component Cleaning - Nuts, Bolts, and Washers

During the overhaul of aero engines and similar mechanisms, fitters remove all the components for cleaning prior to inspection. The resultant pile of expensive nuts, bolts and washers need to be cleaned too.

Vacuum Pump Overhaul

 

The vacuum pump overhaul industry typically depends upon harsh chemical and detergent washing systems, followed by either hand scrubbing or dry blasting to clean pump components. In addition many of these pumps contain high level contaminants which have to be handled in clean room conditions.

Vapormatt have been successful in replacing and improving these traditional cleaning methods with a combination of the Vapormatt Liquid Abrasive Process, along with High Pressure Hot Water which is used for general purpose cleaning and degreasing when abrasive scrubbing is either not required or undesirable.

Vaporblack Process

The Vaporblack process, developed jointly by Vapormatt and Blackfast Chemicals, enables parts to be processed at room temperature employing a special chemical that is far more environmentally friendly than conventional solutions and non-hazardous to operators. Typical process time is less than five minutes, compared with the 45 minutes needed for traditional blacking.
