Project Number 1
Summary:Part of a joint venture between EPA, TURI and RI DEM to reduce the use of TCE in the Providence, RI area, three trials were conducted on this client’s requirement of cleaning within 2 minutes (current rate with TCE) several testing parameters were adjusted and evaluated. In the end, Alconox Detergent 8 worked very well at the 10% concentration and 130 F temperature. The lower concentration (5%) also worked fairly well at 130, but had better results at the 150 F temperature. Client has requested on-site assistance for implementing the changes. TURI and EPA went to facility to conduct real-time testing.
Test Objective:To identify an alternative to TCE for cleaning brass buckles.
