Perchloroethylene

Perchloroethylene (perchlor) is a chlorinated solvent that is used extensively by dry cleaning plants. Other applications include vapor degreasing, and use as a chemical intermediate and processing solvent. Available for shipment in barges, tank trucks, tank cars and ships, the following grades of perchlor are available:

  • Fluorocarbon grade for feedstock applications
  • Dry cleaning grade (not suitable for vapor degreasing of metals)
  • Degreasing and general solvent grade (also usable for dry cleaning)
  • Heavy-duty grade for severe degreasing applications
  • Catalyst grade used in the petroleum refining industry for the regeneration of catalyst in isomerization and reformer refinery operations
