Join us for an in-depth overview of the latest changes in government regulations that are affecting nPB/TCE/HFCs chemistry users in manufacturing facilities across US.  We will be offering 2 days of training, with several technical sessions and hands-on testing throughout the day!  Training is FREE, but space is limited so sign up today!


Recent U.S. Government / EPA Changes Concerning nPB/TCE Used in Manufacturing Operations.  With the ever tightening rules and regulations imposed on solvent cleaning by Federal, State, and other regional governing bodies, today’s solvents must be safe, efficient, effective, environmentally compliant, and provide the required performance level to meet the end user’s needs. Environmental / Health / Safety concerns are paramount when selecting a solvent to meet the cleaning application! This session will provide a current comprehensive look at:

  • Current EPA / OSHA / NESHAP solvent regulations review
  • Emerging NEW solvents – Safety and Performance
  • Market trends for solvent cleaning and more

A Step by Step Guide to help Prevent Corrosion at your Manufacturing Facility.  If you are fighting corrosion on your manufacturing facility, you are not alone.  In this
educational and interactive session, we will provide an in-depth overview of the problem as well as an analysis of the required factors contributing to corrosion.  You will also learn about the types of corrosion associated with the metal industry and the leading causes, as well as ways to minimize them.

Proven Processes for Precision Cleaning in the Industrial Environment. 
With the many advancements in industrial manufacturing, the need to precisely remove contaminants from substrates has increased. Use of ultrasonic energy in a tank filled with fluid, whether solvent or water based, allows the removal of such contaminants quickly and efficiently without damaging the substrate. This session will review how this is done along with examples of applications in the medical, aerospace and metal processing industries. !

ALSO AVAILABLE: Branson Facility Tour & Chemistry Demo. Bring your soiled parts to our event and you will be able to participate in our Live Demo.  We will have aqueous and solvent chemistry available for testing!
