GLRPPR Sector Resource: Aqueous Alternatives for Cleaning Measurement Instrumentation
Aqueous Alternatives for Cleaning Measurement Instrumentation
Rosemount Aerospace Inc. in Burnsville, Minnesota, used TCA during sensor cleaning at a large manufacturer of aircraft data instrumentation. After sensor assembly, the TCA comes in contact with silicone oil during testing to remove the oil before a soldering process. Aqueous cleaners tested on the sensors removed light oils and fingerprints at least as well as the existing vapor degreasing system and eliminated worker exposure to TCA.
