Nonflammable Parts Cleaner

I just got a parts cleaner with a pump. Yipee!! No more cleaning in a 3 gallon bucket.

Anyway, I've used paint thinner (mineral spirits) for many years but have decided I want to use a nonflammable cleaner instead. It has been suggested to use a 50/50 mix of Simple Green and water. I believe I have also seen ads for orange solvent (like the hand cleaner).

I'm looking for suggestions and feedback on what others use.

I use adgetine from Grainger for cleaning tranny`s, cost is around $50 for a 5 gallon pale, there is no odor and contains lanolin so it will not dry out your skin! works very well!

Thanks. Certainly cheaper than the $30/gallon for the orange stuff.

How fluid is it? I guess what I'm asking is, will my pump will pump it?

this cleaner is for use and intended for parts washers! I use an electric pump myself! No problem at all!

Thank you. I did some research and it looks like great stuff. Just wish I could find something that was non-flammable.

I totally agree, just remember to open up a door and turn on the fan, that stuff has got some hairy fumes.

I'm skeptical that there is any products out there that are non-flammable, yet really work. I too would like something that wont burn. I weld & grind in limited space.....
