Arrow Cryogenics offers an array of cleaning services to remove surface contaminants and prepare parts and components for chemical or cryogenic processing, including ultrasonic cleaning and vapor degreasing. Dirt, dust, oil, grease, lime scale, and more can be quickly and easily removed through our cleaning processes.
Our Cleaning Services
We offer a variety of cleaning services for your part and component needs:
- Ultrasonic Cleaning - Ultrasonic cleaning is a cleaning service process where high frequency vibrations create cavitation bubbles in a prepared cleaning solution. These bubbles effectively scrub away surface contaminants and provide a clean final surface. Ultrasonic cleaning can be used on most materials, including metals, plastics, ceramics, glass, and rubber. Ultrasonic cleaning works through specialized transducers that are placed in or attached to the bottom of a tank, which is then filled with a prepared liquid cleaning solution. Parts are placed in the solution, and the transducers produce high frequency sound waves in the liquid. These sound waves create millions of microscopic bubbles in a process known as cavitation.
- Vapor Degreasing - Vapor degreasing is a surface finishing process that uses vaporized solvents to remove oil and other solvent-soluble contaminants. Numerous solvents can be used in vapor degreasing, depending on the material(s) from which the workpiece is made and the nature of the contaminants present. Arrow Cryogenics expertise in vapor degreasing and cleaning enables us to determine the ideal cleaning process for each unique application. Vapor degreasing works through a machine with an enclosed chamber surrounding a heating element and a reservoir containing the necessary solvents.
- Cleanroom Cleaning & Packaging – Cleanrooms have become a necessity for a wide variety of cleaning service. Our clean rooms are specially designed to minimize airborne particles, while maintaining stringent cleanliness specifications for both the medical and electronics industries.
- Cleaning for Oxygen Service - Oxygen cleaning is a chemical cleaning, surface preparation service that Arrow Cryogenics offers for products intended for use in oxygen and high purity processes and environments that can extend the life and performance of a part. Cleaning for oxygen services can be used on any piece of equipment or system. The oxygen cleaning process prepares a product to be in an oxygen-enriched environment by removing combustible contaminants.
Our cleaning services will thoroughly clean even the most complex or intricate parts. Blind holes, recesses, and cracks are effectively penetrated to remove tightly adhered particulates.
All our processes and cleaning services are performed in-house by our skilled, experienced team. From aqueous cleaning to the packaging of completed components in our Class 10,000 (ISO Class 7) cleanroom, we will help you determine the most effective cleaning method for your parts.
