  • High/low power control: You have the choice of 100% amplitude of the acoustic energy for normal applications, or 70% amplitude for delicate applications to avoid damage.
  • Up to 99 minute degassing period: For extra cleaning applications like sample preparation, mixing and homogenization, dissolving solids, cell lysing, and particle dispersion.
  • Energy-saving sleep mode: Automatically activates 15 minutes after cycle is complete.
  • New easily accessible control tower: located above and behind the cleaning tank to avoid damage from cleaning solutions.

Types of Cleaners: Aerosol Sprays

by Andy on April 1, 2013

Techspray 1671-10S Aerosol DusterToday and next Monday we will be highlighting some of our cleaning chemicals at, as well as their common uses. This week we are focusing on aerosol sprays, and next we will go into general liquid cleaning chemicals.

Aerosol Dusters

Widely used in both production facilities and homes, aerosol dusters are used for removing large particles from products. The main difference between various dusters is the strength of the spray and the purity of the air.

Typically the strength of the spray is determined by the size of the nozzle opening. If you want more pressure then go for a smaller opening, but if you need to cover a large area then you will want a larger opening.

For some sensitive parts the purity of the air may be a concern. For instance, the Techspray 1671-10 Ultra Pure duster uses a moisture free inert gas to remove particles without any harmful solvents. As always, contact the manufacturer of the aerosol if you have specific questions as to which type of duster is correct for your application.

Contact Cleaners

Contact cleaners are very similar to aerosol dusters, but they include a cleaning agent that typically evaporates after use. When comparing contact cleaners you should look at compatible materials and whether or not they leave a residue.

In general, contact cleaners are used to remove oxidation, corrosion, dirt, and grease on metal surfaces. If you are working with other materials like plastics then you should check your cleaner’s specifications to ensure that it will not harm your product. If your components are especially sensitive, or if you need to have a clear surface after cleaning, then be sure to use a contact cleaner that does not leave a residue behind.

Flux Removers

Flux removers are used exactly how you would think, to remove fluxes from products after soldering. The main thing to look for in flux removers is what flux it can actually remove. Because there are many types of fluxes, each with different residues that are left behind, you need to check the flux remover’s compatibility with your project.
