Icon explanations

PowerSpray® Technology

PowerSpray® identifies cleaning systems which work with the intelligent pressure-spray-in-air technology developed by kolb or detergents which are suitable for this technology.

AirFlow® Technology

AirFlow® identifies systems which work with the turbulence air in immersion cleaning process developed by kolb or detergents which are suitable for this technology.

PolyPower® Technology

PolyPower® identifies kolb PowerSpray® systems equipped with an advanced pump-nozzles configuration, leading to up to 30% less cleaning time.

PulseFlow® Technology

PulseFlow® technology identifies the pulsing cleaning process developed by kolb to clean and rinse shadowed components, hard-to-reach spots and low standoffs and also optimize rinsing and minimize foaming.

VMH® Technology

VMH®Drying identifies kolb systems with a patented venturi principle based hot air power drying technology which is extremely effective and distinctively economic.

CWA® Technology

CWA®Drying identifies kolb cleaning systems with the patented and energetically as constructively highly efficient combined drying process of compressed air (blowing off the residual moisture) and warm air (evaporative drying).

ClosedLoop Technology

ClosedLoop identifies kolb cleaning systems with an internal circuit for the reprocessing of cleaning fluid and rinse water.

CrossLoop Technology

CrossLoop identifies kolb water treatment systems that reprocess the rinse water of batch systems (with or without internal reprocessing circuit) for fresh re-use.

UltraSonic Technology

UltraSonic identifies kolb cleaning systems with ultrasonic technology or kolb detergents and detergent additives which are suitable for ultrasonic cleaning systems.

TernarySequence® Technology

TernarySequence® identifies the triple stage detergent technology developed by kolb. TS-powered detergents can be entirely regenerated using very simple filtration.

TS+ Longlife Buffering

TS+ labeled cleaners have a high-volume longlife pH buffering, about twice as high as comparable products on the market. TS+ cleaners need to be changed less frequently and thus save considerable costs and protect the environment.


DNAccess® identifies all kolb cleaning systems offering intelligent network connectivity for implementation in industry 4.0 smart factories (remote control, remote monitoring, mailing, remote maintenance assistance etc.)

Traceability Application

Traceability identifies machines which can be equipped with a traceability system allowing continuous and complete tracking and identification of the products to be cleaned.

QuickChange Application

QuickChange identifies kolb systems which are compatible to a kolb QuickChange unit which allows to completely exchange fully loaded cleaning baskets reducing the downtime of a machine to only 1 - 2 minutes. 

CleaninGrid® Application

The kolb CleaninGrid® technology is an intelligent combination and integration of cleaning, loading, water treatment and control systems to large-scale facilities for the efficient mass cleaning of assemblies, tools and machine parts.

Manual Application

ManualApp identifies products which are suitable and intended for manual application.

FlipsideClean Application

FlipsideClean identifies detergents and detergent additives which are suitable and certified for stencil underside cleaning in screen printers.

AutoClean Application

AutoClean identifies detergents and detergent additives which are suitable and certificated for surface and floor cleaning machines.

Additive Product

Additive identifies products which can be added to kolb cleaning products to extend or refine their performance.

Analysis Product

Analysis identifies products or procedures which are suitable for the analysis and verification of cleaning agents or cleaning processes.

Defoaming Product

DeFoaming identifies detergent additives which destroy foam bubbles and eliminate undesired detergent foaming in the cleaning system.

RinseSuitable Product

RinseSuitable identifies detergents, which are also qualified as rinsing fluid. These products are pH7-neutral and have an excellent drying behavior.

Service Product

Service identifies liquids, equipment or procedures which are suitable for maintenance of kolb detergents or cleaning systems.

Medical Engineering Certified

MedCert identifies kolb systems which, due to their filtration technology, cleaning and drying temperatures, are perfectly suitable for medical electronics manufacturers.

Solar Industry Certified Product

SolarCert indentifies kolb cleaning systems and detergents which are qualfied for solar cell production.

Lead free Application

LeadFree identifies products which are qualified for lead free applications. All kolb detergents and detergent additives are labeled with this feature.

Water free Product

WaterFree identifies anhydrous kolb detergents as well kolb cleaning systems which operate in a closed cycle without water (connection), only with a communicating cleaning / rinsing detergent.

Salt free Product

SaltFree identifies detergents and additives that are guaranteed to be salt-free and therefore contain very little conductive material. This prevents detergent caused conductivity (ionic contamination) from being transferred to rinsing processess.

Phosphor & Nitrogen free product

P&NFree identifies detergents and detergent additives which are guaranteed free of any phosphor and nitrogen content.

ESD safe Product

ESDSafe identifies products which have due to their special material or ingredient composition no influence on the electrical resistance and cause no significant static charge.

REACH Conformity

REACH compliant identifies products which are in conformity with the REACH regulations. All kolb detergents and detergent additives are compliant with this regulation.

TSCA Conformity

TSCA compliant identifies products which comply with all applicable rules or orders under U.S. TSCA regulations certifying that all ingredients of the product are TSCA listed.

RoHS Conformity

RoHS identifies products which are in conformity with the RoHs regulation. All relevant kolb products are compliant with this regulation. 

WEEE Conformity

WEEE identifies products which are in conformity with the WEEE regulations. All relevant kolb products are labeled with this compliancy.
