Danfoss Chatleff LLC
We eliminated a hazardous waste stream. We no longer use trichloroethylene (TCE) in our process.
We were using TCE as a degreaser to remove machine oil from metal parts of varying shapes and sizes. We purchased a new parts washer and evaporator so that we could replace TCE with an aqueous degreaser.
