regulatory situation regarding vapor degreasers and chlorinated solvents
is that some solvents, alleged to be ozone depleting, have been restricted
and degreasing equipment has been regulated to have much more emissions
control. In other words, emissions from the solvent into the air is restricted
by the l994 NESHAP rules on vapor degreasers by EPA. Besides selling you
a compliant degreaser, new or used, we also offer the service of taking
your existing vapor degreaser and retrofitting* it so it meets EPA's NESHAP
standards. This can be done at a fraction of the cost of new vapor degreasing
The size of your degreaser
is the operating factor as to the retrofit compliance cost. Degreasers
less than 13 sq. feet at the air interface (top) are less expensive
to retrofit than the larger units because EPA regulations are much more
onerous for large units.We know the NESHAPS and most of the state and
regional environmental regulations vis a vis vapor degreasers. Give
us a call.
All we need is the basket dimensions and
the type of solvent you will use.
* We also sell RETROFIT KITS for do-it-yourself installation.
