Custom Airless Vacuum Vapor Degreasing Equipment

Custom Airless Vacuum Vapor Degreasing Equipment

Serec Corporation developed the first Airless™ vacuum cleaning system in response to the 1990 Clean Air Act, and was awarded 6 patents for this revolutionary technology. Our complete airless systems remove all atmospheric air from the process chamber prior to the introduction of solvent and do not reintroduce any air or non-condensable gases to the process chamber until cleaning is complete and all solvent is removed from the parts and chamber – meeting regulatory and industry environment protection standards.

Award-winning "Best Cleaning Systems"

Serec specializes in designing and fabricating custom industrial vapor degreasing equipment to meet your exact application requirements. Our industry-leading designs include complete cleaning line systems and cleaning modules that are integrated with your existing machine line. Serec's innovative, high performance, environmentally friendly designs and precision, high quality manufacturing have earned our Airless™ Vacuum Systems the reputation as "The Best Cleaning Systems" in the industry.

Our machines are fully-automated and monitored with PLCs and controlled by touch screen HMIs.

Advantages of Airless™ Vacuum Vapor Degreasers
  • Fully automated – Our Airless™ Vacuum Vapor Degreasers are automated and can be integrated into your existing production line. Cleaning is monitored with PLCs and controlled by touch screen HMIs.
  • Cleaning Efficiency – Our state-of-the-art vacuum systems allow for flexibility with operating temperatures to improve efficiency of cleaning and accommodate temperature-sensitive materials.
  • Increased Capacity – Serec's innovative design for Airless™ units have higher capacity than equivalently-sized open top degreasers.
  • Solvent Compatibility – Our vacuum technology removes oxygen prior to solvent vapor entering the vessel, flammable solvents can be used. In addition, solvents with low molecular weights can be used.
  • Excellent Drying – Efficient vacuum drying utilizes heat remaining in the part to boil off all solvent residue for fast, effective drying.
  • Environmentally-Friendly Processing – Our closed-loop, airless vacuum designs ensure near zero emissions, 99.9% recovery of vapor and liquid solvents, and low energy costs. Due to the low emissions, regulatory reporting and permiting is reduced.
  • Safety to the Work Area – Serec Corporation Airless™ Vacuum System's are designed to contain less than 25 ppm in the degreaser prior to opening the chamber door. EPA testing consistently measured less than 15 ppm in the Serec chamber.
  • Reduced Maintenance Requirements – Serec Airless™ Vacuum Systems are self-cleaning. Since contaminants and water are continuously removed from the system, no shutdown and clean-out of the system is required.
