What you don’t know about flammable liquid use in your cleanroom…

  1. Procurement, storage and document control of flammable solvents is not a walk in the park. Chemical purchasing, storage, blending, dispensing, usage, and disposal require internal resources. Updated MSDS documentation must be keep on-site.

2. Bulk chemical blending and batch filling of squeeze bottles requires protective gear, a dedicated chemical handling fume hood, and a hazardous material plan. Liquid solvents represent a higher flammability risk “3”, versus a lower flammability risk “2” for the same solvent that is pre-saturated into a wiper substrate.

3. Operator exposure to an outgassing solvent in an air turbulent controlled environment is not an OSHA winning strategy. At normal room temperatures, liquid solvents give off enough vapors to form burnable mixtures with air, which represents an environmental safety risk. Outgassing volatile organic solvents represent an operator toxic inhalation risk.

4. Disposal requirements of a flammable liquid. Good manufacturing practices recommends complete traceability of flammable solvents from cradle to grave.

Reduce your operator volatile organic liquid solvent exposure while improving your wiper efficacy with the Valutek Pre-Wetted Wipers solution.

How?  Valutek eliminates these non-value added activities that pose environmental liability and employee exposure risk to your organization.

  • Safety:  Eliminate the need for in-plant mixing, solvent handling & transport, and open solvent containers throughout your critical environment.
  • Environmental awareness: by eliminating solvent cans and excessive solvent use, Pre-Saturated wipes reduce needless evaporation, and overuse of volatile organic compounds
  • Efficacy: Wipers are wetted to exactly 38% of the total wiper sorbent capacity  to ensure ideal mix of dwell time, and cleaning capability. An “over-saturated” wiper cross-contaminates particles. Independent studies confirm that operators “over-saturate” their dry wiper.

  • Cost Reduction: Pre-Wetted wipers eliminate all the direct and indirect costs associated with solvent handling.
  • Vacuum sealed: All chemistry is driven into wiper substrate, ensuring uniform saturation from the wiper edge to center, and from the first to the last dispensed pre-wetted wiper.
  • Innovative 3 layer film:  Transparent packaging with a lower vapor barrier transmission rate versus traditional metallic film.
  • Custom cleaning Solution:  Choose the wiper substrate (non-woven & polyester), edge treatment (knife, laser, & ultrasonic), the chemistry and concentration you need.  Valutek will manufacturer to you specification with no minimum order, to ensure maximum shelf life.
