MicroCare Corp.’s Chemours Opteon SF79 cleaning fluid is safe, nonflammable and designed for maximum cleaning power, according to the company. Not only does the fluid clean effectively, but the company says that it has the added benefit of an exceptional toxicity profile. The fluid can also be used within existing vapor degreasing systems.
Dan Walters' invention is a part washing machine that attaches directly to the machine tool while occupying about 10 square feet of floor space. The Wheelie Washer is a conveyor-like system that takes the parts through various chemicals and solutions, removing the oil from each part and drying them.
Although not every shop has been affected by cleanliness specifications, many suppliers to automotive OEMs are already complying with stringent cleanliness standards. In Ford Motor Co.’s case, it has created its own cleanliness standards in order to save money and credibility.
The development of environmentally safe, yet effective solvents has kept vapor degreasing at the forefront of cleaning operations for metalworking.
