The general requirement for PWIS-free (German: LABS-free) components partly results in considerably high costs without any effect on the product’s quality, especially when cleaning elastomeric components. With the approach from APO GmbH based on the VDMA specification 24364, cleaning costs can be reduced without any risk of quality loss.

To achieve the required PWIS/LABS free condition or PWIS/LABS conformity components need to be cleaned. In particular, the cleaning of elastomeric components, such as sealing elements, is an especially challenging task. This presentation explains the failure mode caused by PWIS/LABS and gives a brief summary of the VDMA specification 24364.
