Procedure Number





The parts washer is intended to be used for cleaning and degreasing parts, assemblies, and miscellaneous items that are made of non-porous materials. Suitable materials for cleaning include metals and plastics, whereas wood and foams are difficult to clean and can be ruined. Be sure to test on an inconspicuous area of the part first to ensure that the parts washing fluid does not damage it. ALWAYS remove as much grease, oil, dirt as possible by hand before washing in the parts washer to keep the cleaning fluid working well for longer. DO NOT DUMP oil, fuels, or chemicals into the parts washer.
