Max-Kleen Tri-V

The Ultimate n-Propyl (nPB) Replacement

Max-Kleen™ Tri-V removes of all types of soils from electronic circuits and relays.  Tri-V nPB replacement chemistry is an innovative chemistry that does not contain any n-propyl bromide, TCE, any hazardous air pollutants or ozone depleting compounds. It is the ideal solvent for most electronic  applications. This extra-strength cleaner evaporates quickly without leaving a residue behind. 

The Max-Kleen™ Tri-V™ Advantage

Max-Kleen Tri-V is a true azeotrope, so both the liquid and vapor phases maintain the same composition. It acts as a single component product, so will not fractionate as it boils. This avoids any performance changes as it is used over a long period of time, or is run through a separate reclamation unit.

Vapor Degreaser Setting Guidelines

  • Boiling point – 108°F / 42°C
  • Boil sump temp set – 117°F / 47°C  
  • High solvent temp set – 126°F / 52°C
  • Refrigerant high temp set – 99°F / 37°C
  • Vapor pressure @ 77°F / 25°C – 405 mm Hg

As with all vapor degreaser equipment and processes, observe all safety precautions, guidelines and operating rules associated with these units.  Failure to do so may put operations personnel at risk.  Avoid excessive vapor losses, loss of refrigeration, excessive boil sump heat, etc.  Make sure all equipment is operated in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines and instructions.  If in doubt, contact your manufacturer immediately.

FAQ's

Is there something I can do with the extension tube (straw) so it doesn’t get lost?

The red cap on Chemtronics aerosol products like flux removers, degreasers, and Freeze-It Freeze Spray has a notch on the top. That is engineered for the straw to snap in and hold into place so you don’t loose it. The aerosol trigger sprayers that are common on dusters, freeze sprays, and flux removers, have two ways to store the straw when not in use. The hole at the back of the body of the sprayer is just the right size for the straw to slide into place for storage. The slot below the trigger is also the right size for the straw to snap into place, which also has the advantage of locking the trigger.

Are Tri-V cleaners good replacements for n-propyl bromide (nPB)?

Yes, Tri-V high performance solvent cleaners are nonflammable, powerful cleaners like nPB, safer than nPB, and are also economically priced.

How do I figure out the shelf life of a product?

The shelf life of a product can be found on either the technical data sheet (TDS), available on the product page, or by looking on the certificate on conformance (COC). The COC can be downloaded by going to https://www.chemtronics.com/coc. Once you have the shelf life, you will need to add it to the manufacture date for a use-by date. The manufacture date can be identified by the batch number. The batch code used on most of our products are manufacture dates in the Julian Date format. The format is YYDDD, where YY = year, DDD = day. For example, 19200 translates to the 200th day of 2019, or July 19, 2019. This webpage explains and provides charts to help interpret our batch numbers: https://www.chemtronics.com/batch-codes.

Should I use gloves when using a degreaser?

Yes, it is a good idea to use gloves when degreasing. The solvents used in degreasers do a great job at breaking down greases and oils, which also happen to exist in health skin. If your hands are exposed to a degreasing solvent for enough time, oils will be drawn from your skin leading to “defattening”. Your skin will become very dry and you could eventually develop dermatitis, which looks more like a rash. In addition, some solvents like N-Propyl Bromide (nPB), Trichloroethylene (TCE) and Perchloroethylene (Perc) are highly toxic, so can be absorbed through the skin and cause issues like cancer, or impact liver or kidney function. Please wear gloves and other PPE as required.
