An aqueous degreasing tank is an efficient and cost effective way to clean a wide range of soils from a variety of substrates.
During aqueous degreasing, a layer with soil saturated surfactants forms next to the part surface to be cleaned. This layer acts as a barrier between the part surface and the bulk of the cleaning liquid, which reduces the cleaning action in the tank. Creating agitation in the tank removes this layer and allows fresh solution to flow to the part surface, which greatly enhances the rate of cleaning.
