March 3, 2017  By KYZEN

KYZEN has announced that Global Technology Manager Joe McChesney will present and discuss “Parts Cleaning & Environmental Concerns! Choosing a Green Solvent” on March 7 at 3 p.m., in the HAI HELI-EXPO Newsroom (Room D222 of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center) during the HAI HELI-EXPO 2017. The EXPO will take place from March 6-9 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas.

With the ever-tightening rules and regulations imposed on solvent cleaning by Federal, State and other regional governing bodies, today’s solvents must be safe, efficient, effective, environmentally compliant while providing the required performance levels to meet end users’ needs. As existing solvents are regulated and new solvents emerge, it is important for the user public to understand the benefits and guidelines for using these governmental approved solvents in conjunction with available cleaning systems on the market today. Environmental, health and safety concerns are paramount when selecting a solvent to meet the cleaning application. Joe will present on all these aspects, and will be available for questions afterwards.

McChesney has more than 39 years of experience with solvent and aqueous cleaning processes from conceptual design through field operation. He has served on the EPA/Clean Air Advisory Board, on the State of Kentucky International Trade Association Advisory Board, and has numerous equipment designs and/or processes related to solvent usage patented. Additionally, Joe has contributed many articles for the industry.
