Use Indirectly Heated Dry Air to Clean Parts Contaminated with Oils, Lubricants
Suited for applications that require clean, dry parts such as brazing, coating, soldering and plating, thermal deoilers use indirectly heated dry air to clean parts contaminated with oils or lubricants. The difference between an industrial oven and a thermal deoiler is that the deoiler burns the oil vapor in a thermal oxidizer to provide clean, dry heat for the deoiling chamber. In effect, the oil itself helps to clean the parts while it is being oxidized to carbon dioxide and water. A secondary heat recovery system that uses a shell-and-tube heat exchanger to recycle the heat from the oxidizer back into a burnerless oven can be added to reduce energy cost and allow the recovered heat to be used elsewhere in the process.
