The Cleansolv High Flash EP formulation is designed to remove contamination and lubricant buildup on girth gears and pinions prior to inspection. This is accomplished by flushing the girth gear when the mill is about to stop, during grind out minimizing downtime.

The actual time of flushing a gear set is under an hour. There is no need to wipe the gear teeth down or rinse after, to remove residue as in Magnetic Particle or Dye penetrative inspections; if using ASTM E2905 inspection method.
