    Hi Everyone,
    I have a problem with removing a greasy contamination from baled ISRI Talon (aluminium wire). We have tried various brands of cleaning solvents but no luck so far.

    CAN SOMEONE HELP?

    Please let us know in case you have some experience in similar cases...

    Thanks,
    Deyan

    111, Trichlorothane is the best of the best. You should probably use a vibrating warm tank with a refrigerated reclaim-er. At the top. I have seen them they work well.

    You could probably use perchloroethylene with a similar system.

    Dry cleaners use a similar system.

    Just do not start a fire near either chemical. Or allow the fumes to pass through a combustion engine.


    Sincerely,

    You might try to find a local business that has an ultrasonic bath. The solvents that didn't work conventionally might perform much better. Depends how big your bales are though. The baths are often quite small.

    One thing that bothers me about ultra sound, and that is that its definition infringes on radios definition, as originally defined.

    Radio can create and send energy or cause disintegration in unwanted places.
