Description

High-precision cleaning is required across a wide range of sectors, including aerospace, defense, medical device manufacturing, pharmaceutical processing, semiconductor / electronics, etc.

In this reference work, John Durkee provides a comprehensive guide to all the main materials and reagents involved in the cleaning of surfaces, providing key data alongside practical guidance on applications and techniques and advice about health and environmental aspects.

This handbook is a reference guide that covers all solvent types in industrial use for surface cleaning applications. Durkee's comprehensive coverage includes the cleaning solvents of the past (hydrocarbon), present (halogenated including fluorinated and iodated), and future (binary azeotropes and ionic liquids), including underused cleaning agents (e.g. oxygenated).

The spectrum of information included starts with synthesis methods, supplies the normal physical properties (e.g. surface tension), explains the current applications and potential uses, and provides thorough safety, environmental, and health information.

Key Features

  • A compendium of technical information about all solvents in use in precision cleaning applications; provides basic data for design and troubleshooting of any solvent cleaning system.
  • The most complete published data on binary azeotropes and their properties, enabling the selection of specific binary azeotropes for replacement of single solvents about which there are safety, health, and environmental concerns.
  • Up-to-date coverage of environmental concerns about each type of solvent.

Readership

Engineers and scientists involved in precison cleaning across sectors including aerospace, defense, medical device manufacturing, pharmaceutical processing, semiconductor / electronics, etc.
