Plasma Cleaners, Plasma Cleaning

Plasma cleaners for ultra-fine surface preparation offer an alternative to solvent (e.g. trichloroethylene) cleaning, degreasing and desmearing.

We offer a wide range of plasma cleaners for ultra-fine plasma cleaning of metals, ceramics and other materials where surface condition is critical. Surface preparation by plasma cleaning removes far more organic or mineral oil residue, improves overall quality and is inherently dry & environmentally friendly compared with solvent or aqeous based cleaning alone.
