Component Cleaning solutions by ISL

For many years, industry has recognised that effective component cleaning plays a vital role in manufacturing processes.  Producing high-quality components invariably involves surface cleaning (degreasing) to remove oils, greases and other contaminants encountered during metal working operations.



ISL offer sub-contract component cleaning using our single chamber, rotational, aqueous wash machine.  Environmentally friendly, water based solutions replace harmful solvent / trichloroethylene based vapour cleaning.


Our ultra high specification machine has four heated re-circulating process tanks allowing us to select the right mix of aqueous chemistry for each application. Inline filtration and oil skimming ensure that wash solution quality is maintained to the highest standards. Basket Rotation ensures that blind holes and deep drillings are left clean and dry. Fully programmable with wash times from 2 minutes.


We offer a door to door service - with collection and delivery options available.

Water has the highest heat capacity of all liquids:
The capability for a molecule to absorb heat energy is called heat capacity. Water's high heat capacity is a property caused by hydrogen bonding among water molecules. When heat is absorbed, hydrogen bonds are broken and water molecules can move freely. When the temperature of water decreases, the hydrogen bonds are formed and release a considerable amount of energy. Water has the highest specific heat capacity of any liquid. Specific heat is defined as the amount of heat one gram of a substance must absorb or lose to change its temperature by one degree Celsius. For water, this amount is one calorie, or 4.184 Joules.
- Water is particularly effective in process cleaning because of its heat capacity and solvent properties.
