Best equipment for areas that are highly reflective

Post by tipwynn »

So this has been an ongoing battle throughout the years i have been doing this. I wanted to see if anyone has any insight on new equipment that does well in highly reflective areas. Sometimes i work in areas that are covered in stainless steel or in electronic areas with tons of monitors. The cleanup is a nightmare and adding powder/alcohol mixture is not an option. Any amazing new technical breakthroughs or is this still a struggle?

I can just share a short video about our ZF5014A. Plants scanning was always a challenge with highly reflective surfaces.
I can share some scans with you if you are interested.

For close up areas, I've heard of talc/alcohol solution used in a spray bottle, you can give stainless steel a quick spritz and the thin coating of talc will give a cleaner result. alcohol evaporates to just leave the talc.

Haven't tried myself, but heard it being used in a distillery/brewery before for their shiny metal tanks.

Spray down with water for a quick clean.

There are over the counter solution for reflective areas scan like Aesub sprays but am sure spraying large objects is not practical.
