New case study: Replacing Solvent with Aqueous Detergent at a Small Metal Fabricator

ISTC’s technical assistance engineers worked with a small metal fabricating company to change from a solvent based parts cleaning process to a water-based alternative.


The change resulted in the elimination of 29 drums of solvent (1,600 gallons); reduced VOC and greenhouse gas emissions; and annual cost savings of $5,000 with a one year payback. It also reduces employee exposure to hazardous materials and cleans the parts more effectively.
