Oct. 24, 2002: The U.S. Air Force Corrosion Prevention Office (AFCPO) issues a Final Technical Report summarizing the results of a study titled "AQUEOUS PARTS WASHER (APW) FIELD DEMONSTRATION OF NEW AND IMPROVED PARTS CLEANING SYSTEMS". EMC equipment was one of the equipment manufacturers chosen to be included in the parts washer comparison study. Compared against their current automatic parts washing systems, the results achieved by the EMC POWERJET and EMC WATER EATER were quite positive. The following figures were based on a typical one year, average duty usage.
428 TO 101 HOURS
MAINTENANCE TIME REDUCTION:
