Benefits of Cleanaway solvent sinks

Pneumatically operated, non-electric model available for use in areas where concentration of flammable gases, vapours or dusts occur (Class 1, Zone 1 areas).

Cleanaway also provides the following:

  • Installation, machine set up and on site training
  • Supply of clean solvent
  • Maintenance of solvent sinks based on agreed service schedule

A typical installation has a filtered and a non-filtered sink paired at each cleaning station. The non-filtered sink is used for rough cleaning and the filtered sink for the final assembly wash. Advantages of our solvent sinks include:

  • Extended lifespan and efficiency of your tools and equipment
  • Less frequent solvent changes
  • The sinks are reported to clean more efficiently as a result of improved through brush flow

Cleanaway’s filtered sinks frequently test 14-11 on the ISO4406 scale.

Our filtered sink benefits:

  • Three-stage filtration system that provides cleaner solvent
  • Increased tank capacity and longer solvent life
  • Mobility – able to be moved easily
  • Sealed light unit to protect the light and provide improved safety
  • Rigid design and stability allowing for larger load

Unfiltered sinks are also available.

Solvent sinks at work

Dirty equipment and parts are placed in the sink under the running cleaning solvent. The sink collects the liquid waste and filters the oil. Cleanaway representatives collect liquid waste and clean solvent sinks when requested.
