Dangerous solvents and harsh chemicals have been used for years to remove residual cutting oils from manufactured parts in factories around the world.
With the introduction of green cleaning technologies and an increased awareness of environmental stewardship there has been an increasing pressure to come up with a 'green' alternative to these harsh chemicals.
At WorldWare Enterprises Ltd., we have been working on this for a number of years and we now have many clients who swear by our approach to removing oils from manufactured parts.
Our EATOILS™ SUPER DEGREASER™ is an excellent GREEN alternative parts washing solution - 1) it uses a combination of natural surfactants to quickly remove the oils from the parts, 2) then natural microbes actually digest the oils from the solution, and 3) it keeps on working for multiple cleaning cycles, 4) which results in a low cost method that rivals the cost of the original, more dangerous, cleaning alternatives. In addition, this product is ECOLOGO™ CERTIFIED GREEN.
Typically, parts washing machines and systems fall into four categories - 1) small manual machines with a hose that pours solution (usually solvent) over the parts - the operator usually brushes the parts to remove excess contaminants from the parts (usually in an automotive shop or maintenance facility), 2) large soaking baths or dip tanks where parts are left to sit in a solution (usually harsh chemicals) to remove the contaminants, 3) small or large spray cabinets where parts are subjected to high velocity hot water/chemical spray for a short period of time (2 - 5 minutes) then parts proceed to rinsing tanks for additional contaminant removal, and 4) ultrasonic parts washers where parts are put into a tank with harsh chemicals or solvents and the parts are bombarded by ultrasonic sound waves to remove the contaminants from the parts.
We have found that our EATOILS™ SUPER DEGREASER™ is an ideal alternative for methods 1 and 3 above. In addition, we have found that if you can add agitation to method 2 and 4 above, our product can work well there too!
How does it work? The natural surfactant in our product draws the oils away from the parts and into the solution just like dishwashing soap removes the oily foods from your dishes in your kitchen sink. Add a little agitation and the process is speeded up nicely. Warm water and aeration in the reservoir allow the microbes to be in an ideal environment for digesting the oils out of the solution. If the reservoir is maintained with aeration and warmth the process can go on indefinitely - AND THIS IS WHERE THE SAVINGS COME FROM. If the process can be maintained in this way, the cost per cleaning can drop below the cost of alternative cleaning methods.
As with any new method, there is a period of adjustment and fine tuning of the process until the cycles yield optimally clean parts every time. We have a number of large factories and small shops that have embraced this new approach to parts washing and the positive feedback is growing daily.
