Options for Aerospace Hydraulic System Cleaning Solvent

Because of the critical role that aerospace hydraulic systems play in flying and landing aircraft, you can never be too vigilant about maintaining the hydraulic systems for your aerospace equipment. To be vigilant about maintenance, though, you first need to select a hydraulic system cleaning solvent that matches the needs of your equipment and cleaning operations.

Choosing a Hydraulic System Cleaning Solvent

You have plenty of hydraulic system cleaning solvent options at your disposal, but not all of them are designed to meet the stringent specifications for cleaning aerospace equipment. At Ecolink, we offer solvents that are designed for cleaning aerospace hydraulic systems. To help you select a solvent in an informed, expeditious manner, we present two of our solvent options that work well for many clients in the aerospace industry: Aerokleen and Positron.

  1. Aerokleen

Aerokleen is a non-chlorinated solvent designed specifically for cleaning of aviation hydraulic fluid, among other tasks. Simply wipe or spray the solvent onto the cleaning surface, and watch dirt and residue flow away. Aerokleen offers the following important benefits that make it a highly prefered hydraulic system cleaning solvent.

  • Safe on all metals
  • Excellent solvency
  • Aerospace NESHAPS compliant
  • No hazardous ingredients as defined by the EPA
  • Not a flammable or combustible liquid, (TCC Flash point above 200° F)
  • Conforms to McDonnell Douglas Corp. CSD#1, Type 3, Boeing Commercial Airplane BAC 5750, and DC 17487 specifications.
  • No SARA or RCRA listed ingredients

Order Aerokleen online in 55 gallon drums, 5 gallon pails, 4 x 1 gallon case, 12 x 1 quart case, or 16 x 1 pint bottles. Save money by ordering in bulk or in small shipments on an as-needed basis.

  1. Positron

Positron is an ultra high-purity dielectric solvent that you can use to clean aerospace hydraulic equipment while it remains energized. First, though, read the product literature to be sure the dielectric is strong enough to buffer the electricity load of the energized equipment you need to clean. Important benefits of Positron include:

  • Low odor
  • Fast dry-time
  • Aggressive cleaning action
  • Ultra-low residue
  • No hazardous fumes
  • High dielectric strength, (ASTM D-877 test procedures to 48,000 volts.)
  • No SARA or RCRA listed ingredients

Order Positron in 55 gallon drums, 5 gallon pails, 4 x 1 gallon case, 12 x 22 ounce pump spray, or 12 x 16 ounce net aerosol. Cut costs by placing bulk orders or by ordering smaller quantities on an as-needed basis.
