All of our coolants can be cleaned from your hands with simple soap and water.
Our Engineered Fluids' Dielectric Solvent DS-100 has been specifically formulated to fully remove all of our Dielectric Coolants from electronic devices and comes in 200L drums, 20L pails, and .65L plastic spray bottles.
For laboratory glassware, use your standard cleaning protocol or DS-100 followed by soap and water.
For industrial equipment, we recommend using DS-100 in a pump or aerosol spray.
If you are trying to clean electronic devices that have been fully immersed in our Dielectric Coolants, it will depend on what you intend to do with the device. If you are simply replacing pluggable modules like drives, memory, CPUs, etc. There is no need to clean or remove the Coolant. Our Dielectric Coolants do not prevent electrical connections from operating if they have a mechanical contact like a connector or plug. Just plug in the new module and your ready to go.
If you are going to do a repair that requires heat or soldering then we recommend using DS-100 in an aerosol spray. Spray the area where you intend to work and allow the DS-100 to fully dry, about 5-10m if used sparingly, before soldering or applying heat. DS-100 is flammable so it is important to allow the solvent to fully dry before using high heat or near an open flame.
If you are going to return a device to a manufacturer for warranty repair, or perform an extensive repair yourself, or if you are going to redeploy the device in a non-immersive environment, then we recommend using a dip tank filled with DS-100. Simply fully immerse the board or device into a container filled with DS-100, remove and place the device in a well ventilated area to dry. The board or device will typically dry in about 15 minutes and will be completely clean of all coolant.
