DHAP Super Soft Fabric Sensor Cleaning VSwab®  

This Double layer High Absorbency fabric is super soft and made of super thin fibers. It is used in cleaning delicate surfaces such as space telescopes. The fabric is woven to be non-shedding. Its high absorbency capacity makes it ideal for the surface cleaning of delicates optics. The fabric has also a unique folding design that creates a softer edge compared to a hot sealing process. Compatible only with VDust Plus™ . The specially developed mini-channel design provides an even saturation of the paddles surface while preventing pooling and vertical flow at the edge. This reduces streaks associated with traditional flat surface paddles. The mini-channels also provide the extra reservoir to absorb the excessive liquid and prolonging the moisture life of the swab during the cleaning process.

VisibleDust highly recommends for cameras without low pass filter to use orange DHAP Vswabs® with Vdust Plus™ instead of Green MXD100.

 Cautionary Note

Visibledust sensor cleaning solutions and swabs are calibrated to work together to produce optimal and safe results. Please DO NOT USE alternative solutions with our swab. A simple grain of quartz which is found in cheaper solutions are enough to produce an expensive scratch on the low pass filter. Our solutions are manufactured to the highest standard of quality that is practiced in pharmaceutical industries.

Visibledust solutions are calibrated for NORMAL evaporative rates:

  1. to keep the swab moist at all time to reduce the risk of scratch
  2. to increase the cleaning power, less swabbing more economical
  3. to reduce friction by being moist all time during swabbing

The potential risk of FAST evaporative solutions used as sensor cleaning are the following:

  1. an increase in the risk of damage and stress to sensor coating by using premature dry swab
  2. a great reduction in cleaning power by shortening the contact time between contaminants and solution due to the increased evaporation rate of the solution
  3. increase in friction by using a premature drying swab, resulting in static charge build up leading to an even greater dust accumulation on the sensor

Our cleaning liquids are intended to be placed on the swab first, so the concern for liquid seeping through the sensor is not valid or accurate. On the other hand, the disadvantages of a generic brand or FAST evaporative liquid used for sensor cleaning may in fact may casue damage to the sensor by requiring repeat swabbing and is not recommended.

As you can see from the diagram, VisibleDust is not just about cleaning the sensor. Our myriad of products are orientated to fulfil all of your camera cleaning needs to help keep your images spotless. The fight against dust is relentless when dealing in the digital world. Merely cleaning your sensor is not enough for as soon as you remove one speck, another has taken its place. It is necessary to thoroughly clean you sensor, chamber area and lenses to minimize the frequency of dust contamination. Our focus here is to describe the intricacies of 'wet' cleaning your digital sensor, so we will not discuss the Arctic Butterfly®/Sensor Brush™ that are used while performing a 'dry' cleaning or any of the various other products. What we will focus on here is the liquids and swabs used to remove any unwanted stains or smears that may appear on your sensor.

Sensor Clean™ — this product is best suited for the removal of water based stains on your sensor. It provides an anti-static barrier for the prevention of dust accumulation, it has anti-fogging capabilities and prevents streaking as it cleans. If you intend to work in a humid or arid climate, Sensor Clean™ will provide a buffer against vapour build up and dust collection.

VDust Plus™ — this solution fits in the middle ground where it will clean both water based stains and light oil based stains. If you are unsure as to the nature of the particular stain or smear that you have on your sensor, VDust Plus™ is an excellent choice. It provides great cleaning ability and provides a moderate anti-static barrier.

Smear Away™ — this concoction is the strong sensitive type. It will remove any tough stains that finds their way onto your sensor safely and effectively. As it cleans, Smear Away™ acts as a buffer to prevent any hard and potentially harmful dust particles from scraping against the IR filter. It provides excellent dust repellent properties and prevents friction build up. Due to the nature of some tough oil stains, it may leave minor streaks behind and a follow up with Sensor Clean™ is usually an excellent measure.

Swabs — VisibleDust has produced two distinstive types of swab due to the varying consistancies of the cleaning liquids we offer, though after time we realized that the green series swabs could be used effectively with all of our solutions.

DHAP (orange) Sensor Cleaning Vswabs® — specifically designed to be used with our VDust Plus™ solution, the DHAP swabs also work well with our Smear Away™ liquid. The unique woven pattern increases absorbency while reducing fiber shedding. The ultra soft material used in making the swab is the same that is used to clean extremely sensitive surfaces such as high powered space telescopes. This delicate fabric is ideal for critical cleaning since less pressure is received by the sensor, minimizing any abrasive action when coming in contact with any hard debris.

MXD-100 (green) Sensor Cleaning Vswabs® — the multi-fabric design of the green swabs make them compatible with all of our sensor cleaning solutions: Sensor Clean™, VDust Plus™, and Smear Away™. Although the MXD-100 swabs are a little thicker than the DHAP, they are still softer than our competitors.
