Recommandations on Machines & Suppliers
ECSA recommends to use state of art machines for the safe use of its solvents in dry- and metal cleaning.
Chlorinated Solvents should used in closed systems only to avoid workers over-exposure and minimise emissions to humans and the environment.
Machine should be regularly inspected and maintained to be kept in good conditions (to adhere to regulatory requirements).
Closed machines reduce the quantity of virgin solvent need significantly, due to continues recycling.
The continues re-use of the solvent could lead to degradation and acidification. To maintain solvent quality and avoid corrosion within closed machines solvents should be regularly tested, re-stabilisation accordingly. Further information can be received by your solvent supplier.
Be aware of potential exposure occuring during solvent transfer and use dry-to-dry connections or vapour return lines wherever possible.
Chlorinated Solvents should be discharged and recharged following the procedures recommended by the distributors. The frequency of charge and discharge of chlorinated solvents should be respected to insure the safe use of chlorinated solvents and the efficiency of the machine.
