1. Procurement, storage and document control of flammable solvents is not a walk in the park. Chemical purchasing, storage, blending, dispensing, usage, and disposal require internal resources. Updated MSDS documentation must be keep on-site.
2. Bulk chemical blending and batch filling of squeeze bottles requires protective gear, a dedicated chemical handling fume hood, and a hazardous material plan. Liquid solvents represent a higher flammability risk “3”, versus a lower flammability risk “2” for the same solvent that is pre-saturated into a wiper substrate.
3. Operator exposure to an outgassing solvent in an air turbulent controlled environment is not an OSHA winning strategy. At normal room temperatures, liquid solvents give off enough vapors to form burnable mixtures with air, which represents an environmental safety risk. Outgassing volatile organic solvents represent an operator toxic inhalation risk.
4. Disposal requirements of a flammable liquid. Good manufacturing practices recommends complete traceability of flammable solvents from cradle to grave.
Reduce your operator volatile organic liquid solvent exposure while improving your wiper efficacy with the Valutek Pre-Wetted Wipers solution.
How? Valutek eliminates these non-value added activities that pose environmental liability and employee exposure risk to your organization.
