Project Number 1

Summary:

Testing was conducted over a one-month period on four contaminants using immersion cleaning with no rinsing and air drying. An attempt was made during the evaluations to identify a product that could be used on all of the contaminants. Many products were identified to meet this requirement. Of the eleven products tested, six were successful for each contaminant. One of the products was tested in a beaker vapor degreaser at client’s request. Efficiency in the vapor cleaning was very high for all four contaminants. Ensolv has been selected by the client for in-house testing. Client has converted operations to Ensolv.

Test Objective:

To get assistance in selecting a cleaning material to replace TCE and Perc in vapor degreasing equipment

Product Use:
