The Mini-Max Cleaner from PDQ Precision Products Inc. starts with water that is super heated into steam vapor that dries almost immediately when spray blasted onto a surface. Originally developed to clean medical instruments, the Mini Max Cleaner can be used to clean tooling - removing shavings, markings, etc.

In addition, the Mini-Max Cleaner can be used to clean wood panels, such as cleaning residue out of holes drilled in a cabinet panel. Because the blast would only be a second or two, and because the steam evaporates on contact, it would not damage the wood, the company says.
