Safe and Sustainable Cleaning with the SAFE-TAINER™ System

At Univar we pride ourselves on supplying safe and sustainable solutions to our customers. That is why we chose the SAFE-TAINER™ System from SAFECHEM.

SAFE-TAINER™ provides a safe, state-of-the-art delivery system for solvent-based closed cleaning machines. The system, developed by SAFECHEM is considered to be the Best Available Technology for safe and sustainable transport, storage and handling of solvents.

How it works

The SAFE-TAINER™ System consists of two different containers that are designed for their respective purpose. One container holds a supply of fresh solvent that is drawn into the cleaning system; the other is empty and collects the old, used solvent. Each container contains a drum with a capacity of 216.5 litres.

This solution allows the safe transfer of fresh material and allows the user to safely return the used solvent to be recovered in an accredited professional recycling facility.


How SAFE-TAINER™ works.


Chlorinated Solvents

Cleaning and degreasing metal components for applications such as precision engineering is a quality-critical step in the manufacturing process. Chlorinated Solvents like Perchloroethylene, Trichloroethylene and Methylene Chloride are a tried and proven cleaning media for achieving high-quality cleaning, especially in industries where there is a high level of contamination or in demanding industries such as aerospace or automotive.


DOWPER™ is a specially developed perchloroethylene solvent that is 99.95% pure and virgin. Due to its efficient and non-flammable and easy recycling characteristics, it is classed as the benchmark solvent in dry cleaning and is the solvent of choice for most dry cleaning machines.





DOWCLENE™ 16 Series (Modified Alcohol Solvents)

DOWCLENE™ 16 Series is a range of modified Alcohol Solvents that have non-polar and polar properties. They are suited to removing a variety of contaminants in applications such as the cleaning of heat exchangers. Some are also approved and used in aerospace and medical cleaning applications.
