Project Announcement: Innovative Corrosion Removal Technologies for Improved Parts Reclamation

The US Department of Defense is partnering with industry and academia on an initiative to advance the state of new non aqueous corrosion removal technologies and processes to determine if they provide a greater throughput and efficiency in cleaning reclaimed parts. This initiative seeks to pilot a new approach to prove out new technologies and processes and determine if they can remove corrosion in a manner that increases reclaimed part availability for production and maintenance activities.

Special emphasis will be placed on determining if these new corrosion removal technologies and chemical solutions and washes are safe and if they impact reclaimed part material properties or performance. Key outcomes will focus on reducing reclamation maintenance time and costs, increasing the thoroughness of first-time throughput, preventing injuries and other health issues to employees, and reducing harmful impacts on the environment.
