Project Number 1

Summary:

Under initial investigation, seven products were identified to be effective in removing buffing compounds in under 2 minutes.

Test Objective:

Find an alternative to Perc that is less toxic but equally effective for our two vapor degreasers

Product Use:

surgical instruments-scalpel, scissors etc.
Trial Number Date Run Purpose Success Rating
0 12/14/1999 To identify alternative products for perchloroethylene Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
1 12/16/1999 To further evaluate potential cleaners on other contaminants. Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
2 12/20/1999 To further evaluate potential cleaners using ultrasonic energy. A follow up test, usually based on company input.
3 12/20/1999 To further evaluate potential cleaners on the last type of contaminant. Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
4 12/21/1999 To evaluate potential cleaners on the supplied parts. A follow up test, usually based on company input.
