Vacuum Cycle Nucleation (VCN) is the most exciting advancement in industrial cleaning since the introduction of ultrasonic. VCN provides superior performance in both aqueous and solvent applications.

Vacuum Cycling Nucleation (VCN) is a new technology presently being used to enhance the transfer of material to or from the surface of the solid. The process is accomplished by reducing the total pressure in a controlled environmental chamber containing a part submerged in a liquid to below the vapor pressure of the liquid. The process results in the formation of vapor bubbles at the solid part’s surface where typically nucleation sites for bubble formation can be found in the form of imperfections, crevices or foreign particle material.
