Safe Solvents cleans up with patent for ‘disruptive’ solution29 January 2020
Environmental technology business Safe Solvents Europe has been granted a UK patent for its Ambimization method for parts and process cleaning, predicting it will be “a major disruptor of the traditional solvent market”.
Ambimization uses water-based fluids that work at ambient temperature, are non-flammable, non-carcinogenic and have a volatile organic compound (VOC) level of 6.5%.
As fluids do not need to be heated, this also prevents emulsification which, when coupled with the fluid’s natural splitting properties, “drastically reduces” the volume and cost of waste disposal, says the company.
Ambimization is suitable for removing many forms of surface contamination and is already being used by Formula 1 teams and large OEMs to clean mechanical parts, according to Safe Solvents.
It is delivered under a tailored service plan with no upfront cost; the monthly fee includes fluid, any necessary machines and all maintenance, so contracts can be tailored to meet each application. Fluid-only contracts are also available for large-scale cleaning applications.
“Ambimization delivers a step-change in value for businesses undertaking degreasing, component cleaning, parts washing and surface treatment,” says Tom Sands, founder of Safe Solvents. “Not only does it de-risk a number of traditionally hazardous applications, but it can facilitate operational change, driving gains in productivity.”
