A process, which physically removes contamination but does not necessarily destroy microorganisms. Current routines do not typically quantify the reduction of microbial contamination, which depends upon many factors, including the efficiency of the cleaning process. Cleaning removes micro-organisms and the organic material on which they thrive. It is a necessary pre-requisite of effective disinfection or sterilisation.
The removal of dirt or contaminants from windows Ramenwassen
An action of a boring machine to remove spoil that occurs when the auger is rotating while axially stationary.
The physical removal of most microorganisms and contamination, using detergent and water.
The removal of gates, runners and risers from the rough casting. This term also involves any hand finishing such as grinding or blasting.
removing the fly lint and loose bunches of cotton from a spinning frame to avoid breakage or defects (called slubs) in the yarn.
The process may be defined as the physical removal of foreign material, e.g., dust, soil, organic material such as blood, secretions, excretions and microorganisms. Physical cleaning removes rather than kills microorganisms. It is accomplished with water, detergents and mechanical action. In certain settings (e.g., central service or dietetics), the terms decontamination and sanitation may be used for this process.
Soiled or stained stamps are sometimes cleaned with chemicals or by erasing. The cleaning is usually done to improve the appearance of a stamp. A cleaned stamp can also mean one from which a cancellation has been removed, making a used stamp appear unused.
The process of removing scale, oxides, or lubricant--acquired during heating for forging or heat treating--from the surface of the forging. (See also Blasting, Pickling, Tumbling.)
(a) Alkaline cleaning : Cleaning by means of alkaline solutions. (b) Anodic (reverse) cleaning : Electrolytic cleaning in which the work piece is the anode. (c) Cathodic (direct) cleaning : Electrolytic cleaning in which the work piece is the cathode. (d) Diphase cleaning : Cleaning by means of a liquid system that consists of an organic solvent layer and an aqueous layer. Cleaning is effected both by solvent and emulsifying action. (e) Direct cleaning : See cathodic cleaning. (f) Electrolytic cleaning : Cleaning by immersion without the use of current, usually in an alkaline solution. (k) Solvent degreasing : Cleaning by means of organic solvents. (l) Spray cleaning : Cleaning by means of spraying with a cleaning solution. (m) Ultrasonic cleaning : Cleaning by any chemical means aided by ultrasonic vibration. (n) Vapour degreasing : Degreasing by solvent vapours condensing on the work pieces being cleaned.
The removal of soil or unwanted matter from a surface to which it clings.
the removal of visible soil, organic and inorganic contamination from a device or surface, using either the physical action of scrubbing with a surfactant or detergent and water or an energy-based process (e.g., ultrasonic cleaners) with appropriate chemical agents.
The process of removing marks, dust and other contamination and materials from the floor surface.
Physical removal of visible organic material from surfaces.
any process that removes foreign substances, corrosion or toning, e.g. application of solvents, dipping, and rubbing with abrasive materials or substances
At the mines, diamonds are cleaned using a mixture of methods, including boiling in acid. For domestic cleaning of diamonds or other jewellery, warm soapy water works well. Ultrasonic cleaning tanks can be used with care.
A process in which dirt and dust is removed.
Any procedure that removes corrosion, unattractive toning, etc. such as dipping or rubbing with abrasive materials.
The removal of soil, food residue, dirt or grease.
The process of correcting, edition, and/or removing a name or address from a list because it is not longer entirely correct.
removal of minor marks, dust, grit and other extraneous materials from a surface.
process of removing dirt and/or discolored varnish from the painting surface. Cleaning is an irreversible treatment and one of the most demanding tasks of painting conservation.
The process of using a HEPA vacuum and wet cleaning agents to remove lead dust. See also HEPA filter and wet cleaning.
Cleaning is locating, identifying, containing, removing and disposing of unwanted substances (pollutants) from the environment. It is our most powerful means of managing our immediate surrounding and protecting our health.
Removal of plaque and calculus (tarter) from teeth, generally above the gum line
Also known as clearing, it is the running of a wicket, and therefore removing deadness on all other balls. Having a dirty ball means that the ball may be picked up (ball-in-hand) and actually cleaned upon notification of ones opponents. It is then replaced to its position with no incurred penalty. (exception: see Rover).
A process of removing dirt and reducing the number of micro-organisms from the surface of an object by a process such as washing in detergent
The process of correcting or removing names from a mailing list.
To remove protection from a climb
Refers to removing dirt or otherwise altering the appearance of a coin through the use of chemical or abrasive materials that can damage or scratch the surface in a detectable fashion. Cleaning is different than whizzing or mechanical alteration of the surface. A gentle cleaning in water or solvent that leaves no marks or residue is usually not considered harmful. Cleaning by either mechanical or chemical means that are detectable will generally result in lowering the grade and value of a coin.
Removal of runners, risers, flash, surplus metal and sand from a casting.
To remove aged and discolored varnish; to remove dirt, grime or accretions. NOTE: ALTHOUGH CONSIDERED BY MANY TO BE A BENIGN AND ROUTINE PROCEDURE, CLEANING RANKS AMONG THE MOST DANGEROUS OF PAINTING RESTORATION PROCESSES IN UNSKILLED HANDS (SEE â€œOVERCLEANINGâ€). Cleaning Examples
removing a virus or other infection from your computer.
refers to the removal of gear from a pitch and is usually done by the second or third person as he climbs.
Removal of dirt and foreign material from pulp by centrifugal action.
The process of removing flux residues and other contaminants from the surface of a printed circuit assembly.
The act of removing loose rock, plant life and gravel from a route which if left in situ would render the route unsafe for you, your second or both. Enthusiastic cleaning is hard to distinguish from chipping.
Removing unwanted tree and shrub growth.
