    Every degreaser is provided with specific operating instructions for safe, economical, and efficient operation of the unit. As these instructions may vary with design, type, and work cycle of the unit, it is essential that the operator be familiar with the specific instruction pertaining to his unit. Operating instructions should be posted in a conspicuous place near the degreaser. All degreasers are designed to process a maximum load rated in pounds per hour and have a specific heat capacity to vaporize sufficient solvent. If the work capacity of the unit is exceeded, vapor level fluctuations will be encountered. This cycling of vapor levels may not only produce poor cleaning and lengthen cleaning cycles but increases solvent consumption.
