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:

  • The lifespan and efficiency of your tools and equipment is extended through proper industrial cleaning

Solvent sinks at work

Dirty equipment and parts are placed in the sink under the faucet where the cleaning solvent flows. The sink collects the liquid waste and filters the oil. Cleanaway collects your liquid waste and cleans your solvent sinks when requested.
