Trichloroethylenes, we filter that.


TRICHLOROETHYLENE or TCE (Trichloroethene) is a clear, volatile liquid. Liquid trichloroethylene evaporates quickly into the air that has been linked to Parkinson's Disease. It is nonflammable and has a sweet odor. The two major uses of trichloroethylene are as a solvent to remove grease from metal parts and as a chemical that is used to make other chemicals, especially the refrigerant, HFC-134a. Trichloroethylene has also been used as an extraction solvent for greases, oils, fats, waxes, and tars; by the textile processing industry to scour cotton, wool, and other fabrics; in dry cleaning operations; and as a component of adhesives, lubricants, paints, varnishes, paint strippers, pesticides, and cold metal cleaners.
