Project Number 1



Summary: Using the laboratory's database for solvent cleaning substitution, the lab generated two list of product. The first lists contained products that have been used to clean oil or wax from glass or ceramic surface and could be used in Step 1 of the proposed cleaning process to removal gross oil & paraffin removal. The second list contains products that have been used to clean oil or wax from glass or ceramic surface and would be used in Step 2 Precision Cleaning.

Test Objective: Evaluate potential for zero discharge aqueous washing process.

Problems with Current Method: Removal of contaminants is not at acceptable level and water spots

Purpose of Cleaning: No visible contaminated areas larger than 1000 um in area.

Product Use: hybrid bearings

Cleaning Chemicals: Orange Tuf 40, ADF Powdered concentrate, Micro 90
