Question on retrofitting dry cleaning equipment



I was wondering if anyone has any resources or experience in retrofitting PERC dry cleaning machines? We recently did a P2 Assessment at a facility and they are interesting in retrofitting two existing PERC machines (Realstar M400) to a hydrocarbon solvent. They currently operate two hydrocarbon machines using Exxon Mobile DF2000 in addition to the PERC machines. They prefer the cleaning of the hydrocleaning machines and use of a less hazardous cleaning agent. They would like to eliminate the use of the PERC but the machines are only 7 years old and are in like-new condition. Facility owners would like to retrofit if possible. Any information on the feasibility or cost for such a task? Thanks for any information!
