Use of 1-bromopropane (N-propyl bromide) in dry cleaning is rare and rapidly declining toward obsolescence

The Clean Air Act has identified 187 chemicals or mixtures as Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs). Recently, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) granted petitions to add 1-bromopropane to the Hazardous Air Pollutants list. This recent action by EPA represents the first such addition to the HAP list since 1990. A chemical is added to the HAP list based upon the petition providing “adequate data for EPA to determine that emissions, ambient concentrations, bioaccumulation, or deposition of the substance are known to cause or may reasonably be anticipated to cause adverse effects to human health or the environment"

How To Optimize The Performance Of Your Vapor Degreaser

The vapor degreasing process is easily one of the most efficient ways to clean industrial parts and components. But to get the full bang for your buck, it’s important to keep your vapor degreasing equipment functioning at 100%. Below are a few tips to help you optimize vapor degreaser equipment.

Five Questions To Ask When Choosing The Location For A Vapor Degreaser

You’ve committed to vapor degreasing, and the efficiency of your operation is about to improve significantly. But first, you must decide where in your facility to install a vapor degreaser system. You have plenty to consider, and we’re here to help you choose the ideal spot. The following are our answers to the top five questions about choosing a vapor degreaser location.

Top Ten Most Asked Questions About Vapor Degreasing

When selecting a vapor degreaser, you’re likely to have questions. From equipment set up and placement to questions about the chemicals used in the process, starting a vapor degreasing operation can appear daunting. But with the right guidance, it doesn’t need to be. Below is a simple guide to help you better understand vapor degreasing and the options available to you.

NEXT 5408: Our Fluorinated Boeing BAC5408 Approved Solvent

NEXT 5408 is an ASTM D2942 aerospace cleaner that is listed as an approved material on Boeing’s commercial PSD 6-77 specification for use under BAC 5408.

Nonflammable And Fast-Drying Solvents For Cleaning Engines

There’s no such thing as a foolproof engine. Even cleaning one can be hazardous if not handled with extreme care. Fortunately, you have options for nonflammable solvents and fast-drying solvents that can significantly reduce the chance of injury.

How Today’s Environmental Concerns Impact Cleaning with Solvents

In a single generation, the industrialized world has gone from relative environmental indifference to a protector of natural resources. Not only have consumer minds changed dramatically in the last few years, but new regulations are reflecting those concerns.

Keep Your Castings Spotless With Vapor Degreasing

Porosity sealing is a critical step in parts manufacturing. Porosity refers to any void or hole that forms in the metal during the casting process. A small amount of porosity is almost always present in castings due to various conditions that occur as metal is injected or cooled. Excess porosity can affect a part’s structural integrity and make the part more susceptible to corrosion. In parts intended to hold pressure — such as valves, pumps and compressors — porosity can also create leak paths and render the part unusable.

How To Effectively Clean Your Machine Parts With Vapor Degreasing

Precision parts manufacturing demands effective materials selection, minute attention to design details, precise tools and machines, and highly skilled labor. But even a microscopic speck or smudge of grease, oil or dirt on a part can render all of the above useless. For precision parts to fit together to the correct tolerances and for welds to hold, parts must be impeccably cleaned and free of all traces of contamination. Yet, operational efficiency also must be considered. The ideal cleaning system for parts will be both effective and economical.
