Cleaning of electric tightening equipment
Due to the Corona virus and the need to limit spread and protect operators that are in contact with the equipment we have been requested to suggest appropriate methods to clean the equipment. This is an extraordinary situation and there are no tests to verify the long-term effects. The recommendations are assumptions based on best knowledge about the material properties in our equipment.
Process of cleaning the equipment should firstly be in line what follow the general information in product instructions. For the electric tools, controllers and accessories like operator panel and carbon fiber/aluminum arms our recommendation is:
None of the equipment should be sprayed or soaked by any cleaning fluid.
Equipment should be wiped off with a damp/wetted cloth.
The use of common surface disinfectants based on Iso-propyl alcohol (also called Isopropanol) has been evaluated from a technical properties perspective and no severe effects to equipment should be expected.
Note: Some clear plastics might be affected over time, for example the LED and HMI cover on ST/STR/STB tools and push buttons on operator panels
The equipment is not tested for frequent long-term use of disinfectants. This is regarded as an extraordinary and out of the normal treatment of tools and any failures due to the excessive cleaning will not be covered by warranty.
