Environmental Benefits:

The electrostatic stub coater eliminated the use of more than 70,000 lbs of methyl chloroform annually. Eliminating the use of methyl chloroform in the rodding process decreased the employee exposure while eliminating the need to dispose of hazardous waste methyl chloroform. At the same time the new electrostatic system increased the ability to better maintain graphite coating thickness within a specific statistical range.
