Precision Cleaning

BAE Systems - Adoption of new-generation hydrofluoroether (HFE) fluids delivers a host of environmental benefits in the production of advanced defence electronics. 

BAE migrated from Trichloroethylene (Trike) to 3M Novec 72DE Engineered Fluid, from Acota, for the solvent cleaning of delicate sonar transducers during manufacture. This reduced the organisation's consumption of harmful solvents and improved quality by allowing the parts to be quickly and effectively cleaned at lower temperatures, reducing the chance of image during the cleaning process.
