Drycleaning Solvent (P-D-680) is TOXIC and flammable. Wear protective goggles, face
shield, and gloves; use only in a well-ventilated area; avoid contact with skin, eyes, and
clothes, and do not breathe vapors. Keep away from heat or flame. Never smoke when
using solvent. The flashpoint for Type II Drycleaning Solvent is 140 degrees F (60 degrees
C) and Type III Drycleaning Solvent is 200 degrees F (93 degrees C). Failure to do so may
result in injury or death to personnel.
If personnel become dizzy while using cleaning solvent, immediately get fresh air and
medical help. If solvent contacts skin or clothes, flush with cold water. If solvent contacts
eyes, immediately flush eyes with water and get immediate medical attention.
Compressed air used for cleaning purposes will not exceed 30 psi (207 kPa). Use only with
effective chip guarding and personal protective equipment (goggles/shield, gloves, etc).
Failure to comply may result in injury to personnel.
Removing Deposits. Soak parts in drycleaning solvent (Item 87, Appendix C), and wash away deposits by
flushing or spraying. When necessary, brush with a soft bristle brush (not wire) moistened in solvent. Use compressed
air to dry parts, except bearings, after cleaning. Bearings must drip and air dry.
Tools. Do not use wire brushes, abrasive wheels, or compounds to clean parts unless specifically approved in
the detailed procedures. Parts may be scratched or altered and may weaken a highly stressed part.
Ball and Roller Bearings. When cleaning ball or roller bearings, place them in a basket and suspend them in
a container of drycleaning solvent (Item 87, Appendix C). If needed, use a brush to remove caked grease, chips, etc.
Avoid rotating bearing before solid particles are removed to prevent damaging races and balls. When bearings have
been cleaned, coat them lightly with lubricating oil (Item 54, Appendix C) to remove solvent.
Do not clean tires, lubricant seals, rubber hoses, or electrical components with solvent mixture.
Rubber Parts. Do not clean preformed packings or rubber parts in drycleaning solvent. Wipe parts clean with
a dry, cleaning cloth (Item 31, Appendix C).
Steam cleaning creates hazardous noise levels and severe burn potential. Eye, skin, and ear
protection is required. Failure to comply may result in injury to personnel.
Exterior Parts. Steam clean all exterior parts thoroughly before removing. This will make inspection and
