III Corps and Fort Hood
This project involved performing a Parts Washer Needs Assessment Survey to identify the location, use, and distribution of parts washers for general maintenance parts cleaning and degreasing. The goal was to eliminate any parts washer that was not required for overall maintenance. The criteria used to determine whether a parts washer was needed included:Establishing a standard per maintenance bay distribution standard for parts washers and removing excess units.Identifying standby parts washers and targeting all standby units for removal.Identifying and removing all parts washers not used for general maintenance parts cleaning and degreasing.As a result of the Assessment Survey the number of parts washers on Fort Hood was reduced from 512 to 311.
The amount of parts washer solvent used and managed on Fort Hood was reduced by 39% without affecting overall maintenance operations. The project is also expected to reduce spent solvent management and disposal by 25%.
