Acid-binder and stabilizer with deodorizers for solvent care.


  • Binds acidic decomposition products during the distillation.
  • Supports hygienic conditions in solvents, gas rooms and water separators of drycleaning machines.
  • Deodorizers eliminate unpleasant scents.
  • Deodorizes solvent and water separator.


Distilling  machines
After the distillation residues have been pumped out, add 3-4 ml PERAMON per kg (0.05-0.06 ozfl/lbs) of machine capacity directly to the distillation boiler. For hydrocarbon machines with dirt tanks, add 3 ml PERAMON per kg (0.05 ozfl/lbs) machine capacity once a week. Alternatively, 1 ml PERAMON per kg (0.02 ozfl/lbs) of machine capacity can be added daily directly to the first machine bath.

Non-distilling machines
Once a week, add 3 ml PERAMON per kg (0.05ozfl/lbs) of machine capacity directly into the tank.

Elimination of acute scents in cleaning machines

Unpleasant scents are caused by sludge deposits in tanks/filters or deposits in the water separator that must be removed thoroughly. For distilling machines, add 5-7 ml PERAMON per kg (0.11 ozfl/lbs) of machine capacity to the distillation boiler and distil the content of the working tank completely, then add 3-5 ml PERAMON per kg (0.05-0.08 ozfl/lbs) of machine capacity to the dirt tank and to the working tank.

If filter powders can be applied, filter the tanks in the filter cycle using filters precoated with ADSORBON. If unpleasant scents remain, repeat PERAMON application after three or four days.

Storage and dispatch

In closed packaging, PERAMON has a minimum shelf life of 24 months.

The product is indifferent to frost, but thickens at low temperatures. To ensure correct dosage, allow product to reach a temperature of +15 °C (59 °F) before use.

The solvent care and the maintenance of the water separator are frequently neglected although these works are of utmost importance to ensure that solvent and machine remain in a hygienically perfect condition. What is sometimes overlooked is the fact that the water separator or for some machine types the water separators play an important role for the olfactory neutrality of the cleaned textiles.

In Central European climate, a typical mixed batch has a humidity of approx. 5% resulting from the moisture in the textiles. Since the items are overdried in the drying process, the moisture remains in the water separator of the machine and leaves the system in form of condensate. The few liters of contact water per day (approx. 5 liters) sometimes filter several hundred liters of solvent per day. Even though the contact water looks crystal clear, the contamination level of these few liters can be very substantial.

To ensure that the water separator, which frequently comprises several stages, is always clean, we recommend to drain the water phase regularly and to flush the water separator at weekly intervals with 2-3 liters of fresh water after the contact water has been drained. Many machines have a small funnel with manual valve installed over the water separator. With the machine standing still, the fresh water can be added slowly within 2-3 minutes. The fresh water separates from the solvent, runs through the different separators within approx. 10 minutes and then flows into the safety separator.

This maintenance measure cleans any existing conductivity probes at the bottom of the separator and also keeps the separator sightglass clean. Polar fragrances that may have been introduced by the textiles, are volatile in steam or were overdistilled by the distillation are dissolved partially or even preferably in the water phase of the separator and are thereby once more separated from the solvent. The cleaned items smell fresher and do not have any foreign odours.

If there was a machine issue concerning unpleasant scents, repeated use of this measure in combination with distillation of the solvent leads to a significant improvement of the situation within 1 or two days. If regular maintenance is performed on the water separator, this problem should not arise in the first place. The addition of PERAMON after each cleaning of the still ensures a slightly aklkaline pH of the solvent. Odour-intensive substances are bound in the still, and corrosion on machine parts and coolers is avoided.  

We recommend the regular use of PERAMON in solvent cleaning machines for all solvents in the textile care industry.

PERAMON for the care of solvents, machines and components ensures hygienic conditions in cleaning machines and avoids the occurence of unpleasant smells. By stabilizing the pH of the solvents, PERAMON actively contributes to the stabilization of the solvents in the textile cleaning industry.
