PD 680 is ‘finally’ getting closer to permanent retirement
More than 100 companies offering Environmental, Health and Safety products and services exhibited at 2010 Warner Robins AFB EH&S Fair. Ecolink displayed solvent, degreaser alternatives to PD 680 including MIL PRF 680 Type II and IV. We continue to invest in educational outreach to retire PD 680 from use in parts washers, especially Safety Kleen parts washers.
Here is our theory why MIL PRF 680 will finally retire PD 680 for General Purpose, Environmentally Compliant Solvents for Maintenance Cleaning of DOD Equipment.
A) P-D-680 was CANCELED on December 13, 1999 and replaced by MIL-PRF-680B. US Military states that if a Technical Order has not been updated and continues to reference the use of P-D-680, MIL-PRF-680 is the accepted substitute.
B) PRF 680 is on the QPL (Qualified Product List) and therefore complies and conforms to TACOM and TARDEC standards for degreasing solvents widely used by Department of Defense (DOD) and other federal agencies for many types of routine maintenance cleaning applications
C) MIL-PRF-680 products are also approved by – Boeing asPSD 6-88 for BAC 5750 Solvent Cleaning (as optional to P-D-680 specification) Pratt & Whitney as PMC 9001-1, -2, -7, -10 Stoddard Solvent (MIL-PRF-680, Type I, II or III) Messier-Dowty (Maintenance Manuals)
D) PRF 680 has lower aromatic content, which equates to lower odor and non-volatile residue.
E) MIL-PRF-680 contains the same amount of VOC as PD 680 but does not contain Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs).
