Maintenance/Cleaners: Eco-Friendly Cleaning Agents
To create and improve high-quality products, businesses must demand the highest levels of cleanliness, especially regarding equipment and machinery. Any malfunction or damage in industrial equipment can result in poor product quality, which can ultimately lead to product recalls, less profits and the loss of consumer trust. To maintain these high levels of cleanliness, businesses resort to using industrial-strength cleaners, which can remove the toughest kinds of dirt and grime imaginable.
However, a trade-off for these cleaning products' effectiveness is the inclusion of hazardous substances in the mix. These include 1,1,1, trichloroethane and chlorofluorocarbons (CFC), which contribute to the destruction of the ozone layer. These two compounds are now slowly being phased out under the Montreal Protocol. Other hazardous chemicals found in cleaning products can also contaminate the end product, again resulting in product recalls.
This has resulted in a need for environmentally-friendly solvents, degreasers and other cleaning products. Fortunately, industries today have a wide variety of all-natural cleaners to choose from. They safely clean different types of surfaces such as chrome, aluminum and wood without deteriorating their qualities.
Here are some of the environmentally-friendly cleaning products:
— these all-natural cleaning products are ideal for all industrial cleaning needs. These include solvents, degreasers, specialty solvents, aqueous cleaners and high performance janitorial maintenance products. These are primarily used for electrical maintenance, parts washer, dip tank cleaning and flux removal. One of these degreasers is Positron, a substitute for 1,1,1, tricholorethane, which is used by the US Military for cleaning helicopter engines and other aerospace applications. These cleaners are also CFC-free. Compliant with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations.
— these are used for different industrial cleaning applications. These include tar and paint removal, hard surface foam cleaners and brake part cleaners. Similar to other cleaners, the first BioChem Cleaners were also designed to replace 1,1,1, trichloroethane. This led to the creation of cleaners that are non-corrosive, to avoid damaging equipment, and are also non-toxic, making it safe for both workers and the environment. BioChem Cleaners does not include chlorinated solvents, acids, caustics, petroleum and other hazardous materials.
— these solvents and degreasers can remove tough dirt such as grease, tar, wax and gum. They are safe to use even on aluminum tile, wood and chrome without damaging their surface qualities. These are free of petroleum distillates and non-toxic. These clean hard dirt without causing harm to the environment.
By maintaining industrial equipment and facilities efficiently, businesses not only promote overall safety, but also result in the production of more quality goods and merchandise. With smaller losses from defective products, these safety measures can also help you reach business targets.
