WRATT II Solvents - The Good, the Bad & the Banned Chapter 02: Case Study - Lincoln Brass Works
Chapter Abstract: This is clip 2 of 6 for this video. Lincoln Brass Works is a manufacturer of fittings and parts for outdoor grills, ranges, and furnaces. Chips and oil must be removed from the parts to ensure proper fitting during assembly. The plant has been trying to achieve a waste free facility. The first step towards this goal was the recycling of machine fluids. The next step was to try to eliminate the use of trichloroethylene. Management was primarily concerned with employee health. After evaluating alternative cleaning methods, the plant chose to use a new cleaning system developed by Bowden Industries. The system will pay for itself within 2.4 years. This aqueous cleaning system has proven more than satisfactory. The detergent used is suitable for discharge in the local sewer should it be needed. The facility is now hazardous waste free.
