The Sensotronic was the first twin sump immersion cleaning system to incorporate the technical capability of running most non flammable solvents via a simple temperature adjustment.

This opens up a huge market in electronics or any precision cleaning application where a solvent process is deemed necessary. Its unique patented design maximises output efficiency whilst minimising energy and solvent emissions.

Process Cycle

  • Lower components into the boiling sump (left) for the desired vapour cleaning time.
  • Transfer the components to the ultrasonic distillation immersion tank (right) and start the ultrasonics for the desired time.
  • Raise the components to the vapour area for between 15 and 30 seconds.
  • Lift the components to the freeboard area of the tank and watch them dry usually between 1 and 4 minutes.


  • Most none flammable solvents can be used. 
  • Primary fridge 1.8kg of R404A refrigerant.
  • Secondary ultra low-temperature freeboard fridge.
  • A quick and easy method of removing tar, oil, grease and other insoluble solids from all types of components.

  • Ultrasonic output power 500 watts.
  • 240Volt.


Summary of Vapour Degreasing

Rated for its effectiveness against oils and grease, vapour degreasing is a process that is closely related to water-based degreasing but uses non-flammable solvent instead of water based solutions.

Taking place in a twin slump tank, vapour degreasing is made up of two stages (minimum), rinse and vapour. The simplicity of the process is a major contributing factor to its success as it is known as a very effective and reliable cleaning method.
