DUE TO n-Propyl bromide now being included in Annex 14 of REACH

EnviroTech Europe Ltd (ETE) continue to publish it as historical information and to record changes occurring in legislation which have affected decisions on formulations and equipment used in vapour degreasing - the most effective, quickest, flexible and cheapest cleaning system used in industry.

EnSolv® invented and patented by EnviroTech has been a market leader all over the world for vapour degreasing. It is based on n-bromopropane (nPB) which now cannot be used as a vapour degreaser within the UK or EU without authorisation.

Archived information about EnSolv®  can be found using the Discontinued Products & Resources navigation menu on this page.

Using experience accumulated over 40 years supplying and supporting users of the vapour degreasing process ETE specialists have developed “drop in” alternatives:
ProSolv®, ProSolv5408e®  and EnSolv CC-A® give the same or improved level of performance and economy as the original EnSolv® products.

EnSolv CC-A

EnSolv® medical device and implant cleaning solvents are used world wide for the cleaning of medical instruments, implants and other devices

Critical cleaning is vital for successful operations. In the medical device industry, cleaning processes must be proven to leave no residue that could possibly enter a patient’s body. EnSolv® solvents have been proven for years to provide superior cleaning performance with no residue for medical devices such as orthopedic implants, dental tools, surgical tools and pacemakers, to name a few.
EnSolv® removes microbial contaminants in one operation and are compatible with all metals including titanium, ceramics and polymers, it removes cutting oils, lubricants and polishing compounds and other soils. Canulas and needles are coated with lubricants using EnSolv® as a volatile carrier fluid. Consistently high quality and compatibility with organic and synthetic oils makes it ideal for this demanding application. In Oxygen and gas system cleaning it removes oil and organics leaving residue free surfaces approved by gas supply companies.
EnSolv® precision cleaning fluid is a drop in replacement for the carcinogen Trichloroethylene and can be used in any modern cleaning machine designed for solvents. It sets the standard for soil removal in these demanding applications.  For many of these cleaning processes, EnSolv® has replaced Trichloroethylene, other hazardous chlorinated solvents or expensive and less effective designer solvents such as Hydrofluoroethers (HFEs) and Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs).
Vapour degreasing or ultrasonic cleaning with EnSolv® are typically some of the most effective and efficient methods of cleaning medical devices without sacrificing performance, production capacity or floor space.
