What are you using for your parts washers? Mineral spirits or a true parts solvent, or a mixture with diesel fuel?

I get a kick out of this when company’s try and push the "environmentally safe" speech.
As soon as you use it it's now hazardous. lol

Only if something is introduced into it that makes it hazardous, like a flammable substance that lowers the flash point.

Having worked for Safety Kleen for 7 years or so back in the day, when the 150 flash mineral sprits came out. Many people had their solvent tested to make sure it was indeed non-hazardous. About 75-80% of them came back non-hazardous even after a 12 week use cycle.

As long as nobody sprayed brake or carb cleaner into it, it almost always came back good.

And by the way Safety Kleen solvent is mineral sprits, with color added on the 105 flash stuff...which is hazardous due to flash point being below 140.

Mineral Spirits with a touch of transmission fluid thrown in, helps my skin from drying out to much and does a great job dissolving carbon. I put in half a qt of ATF DexIII per 5 gallons.

I didn't like agitene. Seemed like it would eat through gloves.

aqous bio part washing systems are nice.

What do you guys do with your parts after the solvent tank? Hot water rinse in a sink? Rinse with the hose? Blow dry?

Sam I spoke with safety kleen at pri you can lease them or buy them. I opted to buy a parts washer off ebay new but it is not the drum below type, it has solvent in lower part of the parts washer at all times with a shelf half way up in side you can remove. it will work fine for me.
