Morgan Advanced Materials Eliminates Use of TCE

Morgan Advanced Materials, a manufacturer of ceramic feedthroughs for medical and aerospace industries, used trichloroethylene (TCE) for several tasks, including wax removal after ceramic grinding. After investing in a new vapor degreaser system and a new solvent mixture tested by the TURI laboratory, Morgan eliminated the use of TCE, thereby enhancing the health and safety of its workers, eliminating TURA reporting, and reducing costs.

This short video describes Morgan's decision-making process, cost savings and expected improvements in health and safety and regulatory obligations.
