The current 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 equipment.

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.
