We supply a unique inventory of industrial filtration products, including Donaldson compressed air filters. Here are just a few of the industries that rely on compressed air products.

Automotive manufacturing requires strong quality control to ensure minimal product defects. Compressed air is an essential part of running the high-precision equipment used to build thousands of new vehicles every day. Maintenance downtime can be very costly, so it is important that compressed air and water are properly filtered from harmful contaminants that will negatively affect the equipment.

Chemical production
Compressed air and liquids are an integral part of chemical production. Hazardous, corrosive and contaminated gases and liquids put product quality at risk; If not filtered properly, even the lowest impurities can cause costly delays in production.

As the need for smaller electronic devices grows, so does the requirement for the highest purity standards in compressed air and water used in the semiconductor manufacturing process. In addition to inlet air filtration for process tooling, semiconductor manufacturing requires high levels of filtration for bulk air and water to meet critical purity requirements. The proper filtration of bulk utilities will extend the life of filtration devices and minimize downtime.

FAQ: Sublime Water Scale Solvent

Sublime Water Scale Solvent is available to return scaled processing equipment to top operating efficiency.

What is Sublime?
Sublime is an enhanced 10% HCL compound. In the process of dissolving scale, it releases CO2, consuming approximately 1.5lbs per gallon while creating a disposable solution that is pH neutral and biodegradable.

What type of material will it remove?
Sublime is designed to penetrate and remove encrusted limescale, rust, dirt, and corrosion by-products, especially calcium and magnesium compounds.

Is it safe to use?
Used as directed, Sublime is non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-flammable and non-hazardous as regulated by OSHA and DOT. It is also certified by NSF International as meeting the USDA A3 standard food grade classification.

Why does Sublime change colors?
This is a visual indicator that your Sublime descaler in VA is depleted and it’s time to discard it. It has also reached a pH range of 5.8 – 6.0 and is safe for disposal. If the color has not changed and equipment is clean, the solvent can be saved for reuse.

How do I know when Sublime is finished cleaning, and inaccessible parts are clean?Recirculated Sublime will remain yellow and rinse water should be clear. Consider the condition of exterior end caps and fins as a reliable indicator of interior cleanliness.
