TCE Replacement

Hello P2Techies!

Malcolm Boyle, one of the engineers here at ISTC (formerly WMRC) is working with a company interested in eliminating TCE from its parts washing process.  Presently, they have two vapor degreaser units (with ultrasonics) using TCE and are looking for alternative cleaners or cleaning system.

They clean small parts, smaller than dime size to quarter size.  Parts are composed of copper or copper alloys and are plated with tin ( or  other different metals).  They do not want to use N-propyl bromide or CO2 snow or aqueous due to spotting (and other issues).

Does anyone have any suggestions for an alternative?

Please copy Malcolm on your response (mboyle@istc.illinois.edu).
