Quality & Environment

Environmentally Friendly Quality Control

At Longworth we pride ourselves on environmentally friendly component cleaning solutions and exercise strict quality control standards having recently achieved re-certification to BS EN ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management

There are many alternative technologies capable of cleaning the woven steel mesh filters and other complex components used in polymer production. Historically these technologies involve harsh solvents, chemicals or burning: All of which are capable of damaging the cleaned components as well as the environment.

Some of the solutions we offer include;

  • Ultrasonic cleaning
  • Aqueous cleaning
  • Bubble testing
  • Pyrolysis (burn off) cleaning
  • DEECOM® super heated pressure steam cleaning

All of our solutions ensure the safe removal of contaminants such as polymer, food waste, oils and fats, dust, rust, residue and biologicals in industries such as;

  • automotive
  • food manufacturing
  • packaging
  • plastics
  • pharmaceutical & medical

Whatever solution we’re using for your cleaning needs, be safe in the knowledge that our quality standards are observed.

What is DEECOM®?

Longworth believes that process cleaning should no longer carry negative side effects.

In 2005, Longworth launched DEECOM®, a patented, steam cleaning process. As one of the many cleaning solutions at our disposal, DEECOM® is environmentally friendly using only superheated dry steam as a cleaning medium and is revolutionising component cleaning.
