About aqueous processes

Aqueous cleaning is a low cost, environmentally friendly method of cleaning metal parts and components. The process uses less hazardous materials to wash even the most stubborn contaminants to ensure the highest levels of cleanliness are achieved. The cost of waste disposal is of equal concern and the lower they can be the better.

With increasing pressure from industry to deliver cleaner, environmentally friendly products it is important that customers cannot only show but can technically prove just how clean their products are.

When deciding, which aqueous solution is right for your requirement the first step is to determine what contaminants require cleaning followed by what level of cleaning is deemed acceptable. There are varying standards relating to levels of cleanliness in different industries but the end goals are all the same; clean components and clean parts reduce lead time, improve processes resulting in higher efficiency, lower costs, extend the lifetime of equipment and more importantly result in a happy end customer.

At Fraser Technology, our in-house technical expertise and free trial service enable users to try and test a variety of aqueous solutions to suit their needs. We not only supply the physical solution we provide on-going support designed to help you achieve your goals.
