SUCO now offers customers plasma-cleaned pressure switches and sensors for various industrial and medical applications. Now, there is no need to send your equipment away for plasma cleaning as plasma cleaning is completed at SUCO’s facilities and is available in three levels of purity, depending on your application.
Plasma cleaning ensures products are free of oil and grease for oxygen applications and PWIS-free for coating and painting processes.
Residue-free cleaning service prevents any contamination. Plasma cleaning removes any organic hydrocarbon-based contamination like oil and greases; lubricants; silicone and any substance that interferes with paint wetting. Using plasma cleaning enables a maximum purity level of 20 mg/m² (stage B) according to ASTM G93:2019.
Wetting ability is another advantage. Plasma activation temporarily increases the surface energy, increasing wetting ability - otherwise known as surface activation.
Additional advantages include the efficiency of plasma cleaning due to the low energy and process costs and being environmentally friendly. Sensitive surfaces, such as polymers, are also not damaged and immediate processing is possible.
Five steps are required in plasma cleaning, shown below:
SUCO offers three different levels of plasma cleaning purity options depending on what is required for your application. As the level of purity goes up, the process time increases.
