    There is a variety of cleaning cycles that can be used in vapor degreasing. To select the proper cycle for a specific cleaning application, consideration should be given to the nature and number of parts, type of soil, the method of handling the parts, and any physical limitations such as floor space, ceiling height, and so forth. Following is a discussion of the advantages and limitations of the most commonly used cycles. It is to be noted that in all cases, the cycles are arranged so that a final vapor distillate rinse is obtained. Usually, the choice of cleaning cycle can be confirmed by test cleaning in a supplier's laboratory.
