ProSolv like many other fluorinated solvent azeotropes is extremely effective for precision cleaning in high-tech industries such as aerospace, aviation, electronics and medical due to the use of an additive trans 1,2-dichloroethylene.
Fluorine is lost from the process as organic fluorides which leave with the product streams and as HF (plus traces of organic fluorides) in the bottom stream from the acid re-run column, limited by the water/HF azeotrope.
It can be run without a solvent, but is faster and more reproducible in the presence of a solvent such as xylene, which forms an azeotrope with water.
These solvents form an azeotrope with a boiling point close to that of ethyl acetate, and thus the solvent keeping approach would not work.
