Equipment and supplies used to refine or roughen a surface to meet surface finish requirements or to clean, strengthen or prepare the surface for additional processing.
Abrasive blast machines and sandblasters clean and prepare surfaces by directing a stream of abrasive particles against a part or a surface.
Abrasive brushes have abrasive filament brush fills, which provide a more aggressive action compared to synthetic or wire filaments.
Aerosol cleaners and contact cleaners are dispensed as a fine-droplet spray. Contact cleaners are used widely in the mission-critical cleaning of electronic, electrical, and fiber optic connectors.
Air blow guns attach to air lines for the manual actuation and/or control of air discharge. They are used primarily for debris removal and purging, non-contact part cleaning and drying, and general laboratory or industrial applications.
Anti-icers and deicers or anti-icing and deicing chemicals are used to prevent ice formation, remove existing surface ice, and remove or prevent frost formation. They are available in liquid or granular forms.
Blasting rooms and blasting booths are designed to contain the abrasive blasting process used with large workpieces. They are self-contained enclosures that have internal lighting and can accommodate both the workpiece and the operator.
Brooms, mops, and janitorial brushes are designed or suitable for maintenance and repair operations (MRO) and include products such as scratch brushes, wet mops, dry dust mops, brooms, paint brushes, and other scrubbing or washout products.
Burnishing and peening machines impart compressive residual stresses, which improves fatigue strength and corrosion resistance.
Burnishing tools are used to impart a gloss or fine surface finish, often in processes that involve the cold working of metal surfaces.
Clean in place (CIP) systems rinse, wash, acid rinse, sanitize and/or dry the internal surfaces of process tanks, process equipment and process lines by flushing rinsing or cleaning agents through the process system.
Cleaning agents and surface treatments includes liquid cleaners, degreasers, strippers, passivators, etchants, solutions and additives for cleaning and surface preparation.
Corona treaters and plasma cleaners generate and expose organic or polymer substrates to ionized gas to improve wettability of adhesives, paints, inks or other coatings.
Degreasers and degreasing equipment remove grease, oil, lubricants or other organic films from parts using aqueous cleaners or solvent vapors.
Dust control products and debris control products protect equipment, valuable inventories and people from unacceptable or dangerous contamination.
Electrolytic cleaning equipment uses electrolytes and applied current to electrochemically clean welds and other metal surfaces. Electrolytic cleaners are also known as electrocleaners, weld cleaners and electrochemical cleaning systems.
Etchers and etching machines remove material from the surface of a part using an acid or alkaline chemical solution. Etchers and etching machines, also known as chemical milling machines, use masking substances to protect some surface areas of the part, providing selective material removal or patterning.
Filter cleaners and filter cleaning equipment is used to clean or deblind filtration media in air and fluid filter units.
Floor scrubbers are machines used to clean large surface areas such as walkways, roads, factory floors and parking areas.
Hand brushes have bristles mounted in a wood, plastic or metal handle or stem such as scratch, welders, and twisted-in-wire and plater brushes.
Hose and tube cleaning equipment uses nozzles, projectile, specialized brushes, and other means to clean or prepare the inner diameter surfaces of tubing, pipe, and hose.
Hydroblasters and water blasters direct high pressure (10,000+ psi) streams of water against a surface to clean or cut the material.
Immersion parts washers clean components by submersing them in an agitated cleaning solution contained in a wash tank.
Industrial brushes are used for metal deburring; removing rust, paint or coatings; welding or surface preparation; painting and coat application; thread cleaning; and surface finishing on a variety of materials.
Industrial parts washers remove grease, soil, oil, abrasive dust, blast debris, swarf, paint, corrosion or other contaminants from the surfaces of components exiting a production line.
Paint brushes and applicators are used to apply paints, adhesives, sealants, oils, cleaners, acids or etchants, mortar or cement treatments, and other coating products to surfaces.
Passivates are chemicals used to reduce surface reactivity to protect a metal against corrosion. Depositing an inert coating or forming a coherent oxide layer can also passivate a surface.
Power brushes and rotary brushes are designed to be mounted to an electrical or pneumatic tool or machine.
Pressure washers direct a high-pressure stream or jet of water against a surface to clean, descale, degrease or prepare a surface.
Nozzle cleaners and spray gun washer consists of specialized cleaning equipment to remove paint, coating, resins, and sealants from the internal bores and surfaces of spray guns, sprayer components and nozzles.
Spray washers clean parts with a directed, pressurized spray of hot water, detergent or cleaning solution.
Steamers and steam generators produce steam vapor for cleaning, oxidation, and other process functions.
Swabs and cleaning sticks consist of a small wad of nonwoven, cotton, microfiber or foam wrapped around either one or both ends of a short wood, paper, or plastic rod or tube for use in medical, fiber optic, laboratory, electronic and other critical cleaning applications.
Sweepers are cleaning machines that are typically used to clear floors, streets or other large surfaces of loose debris.
Tack cloths, tack rollers and tack sheets dry clean surfaces by adhering particulates to an adhesive or tacky layer.
Tank cleaning machines wash out the internal surfaces of a storage, marine or process tanks using rotary spray heads, jet heads, static spray balls, or clean-in-place systems
Ultrasonic cleaners use high frequency sound waves to create bubbles for loosening and removing dirt, scale, and other impurities from parts.
UV light systems provide ultraviolet light for identification, tracing, curing, disinfection or processing applications.
Vacuum cleaners are capable of picking up large quantities of material and/or liquids. They can be portable devices or part of a central vacuum system.
Vehicle cleaning systems wash the exteriors and interiors of aircraft, railcars, automobiles, and marine vessels. Systems include sprayers, scrubbers, dusters, vacuums, shampooers, and blowers that typically focused on a singular class of vehicle.
Mass finishing machines use loose abrasives or tumbling media combined with cleaning or polishing compounds to bulk-finish parts.
Washdown Stations use the process of high-pressure cleaning with water and or chemicals. Washdown Stations are used in industries such as food and beverage, pharmaceuticals and industrial cleaning.
Wipes and wipers include wet, dry, and biocide-saturated microfiber cloth, paper, foam, and nonwoven sheets for medical, fiber optic, laboratory, electronic, and other critical cleaning applications.
Wire brushes are tools primarily used for abrasive purposes, such as cleaning rust and removing paint.
