Cleaning contaminated conductor to alleviate environmental acoustic noise problems has been effectively demonstrated in the laboratory environment using either water jet washing or pulsed laser cleaning technology. Both methods however struggle to remove thicker clumps of grease which form in the root of the interstices. The same applies for the traditional hand cleaning method. The key objective of this proposal is to develop simple hardware to be used in advance of other cleaning techniques, to displace and remove the interstices grease.
