Due to EH&S issues, a large manufacturer of stamped/gear shaped steel parts for Tier 1/Tier 2 automotive applications was required to replace their large trichloroethylene vapor degreasers with efficient and safe aqueous cleaning processes.
The cleaning objectives were to remove both water soluble and insoluble stamping oils to a cleanliness level required for acid etching/coating/bonding procedures. This case study explains how this plant’s goals were met and others can do the same.
