Cost-Effective Cleaning with Vapor Degreasing

In this reprint from Finishing Today magazine, the author explores the problems inherent in aqueous cleaning processes: large footprints, require large capital investments, consume electricity at a prodigious rate, are maintenance intensive, and require expensive waste water treatment systems. Vapor degreasing resolves all of these problems but introduces certain new issues that must be considered when upgrading cleaning systems. With modern equipment and solvents, vapor degreasing is a safe, cost-effective and environmentally acceptable cleaning method.
