SRS Engineering offers industrial cleaners and degreasers with a unique formulation designed to remove dirt and oil. This product has a strong affinity for oil and contaminates and loosens them from the parts. Most oil floats to the surface where they can easily be removed via skimming wheels/belt, absorption blankets, or vacuuming. Turning off agitation allows solid particulates and metal fines to settle on the bottom where they can be filtered off as sludge via a recycling filtration system. Best industrial cleaners & degreaser for today’s environmental regulations.
HEAT AND AGITATION
Heat and adequate agitation are the most important factors when using SRS’s unique formulation to clean efficiently. As a rule of thumb, we recommend the entire tank volume should be re circulated once per minute. Both heat and agitation can be produced by the following methods:
PARTS SPRAY WASHERS
For both safety and performance, SRS Industrial Cleaner/Degreaser is a significant improvement over the caustic powders and solutions commonly used in spray degreasing equipment. At a dilution of 3% (1:30) with water, heated to 145° F, SRS effectively removes contaminating oils. Because of SRS’s unique abilities, spray nozzles stay clean from contaminate buildup. Since no rinsing is required, an economical single-stage washing system is practical.
SRS, in a 5% solution will remove oils, dirts and fine metal particulates agitated by ultrasonic systems.
HEATED DIP TANKS
A 5% solution of SRS heated to 145 F replaces all hazardous caustics and acids in submersion washing systems. Parts washed in SRS and thoroughly dried are protected from rust for approximately 7 to 15 days. These parts can then be coated or bonded with no further treatment. SRS Industrial Cleaner/ Degreaser can also replace chlorinated hydrocarbons and other chemicals in vapor degreasing tanks. Those very same vapor tanks can be converted to an SRS submersion systems in a very short time and little expense. We recommend the conversion for improving agitation so as to insure cleaning effectiveness.
OXYGEN AND COMPRESSED GAS USERS
SRS Industrial Cleaner/Degreaser offers a safe and simple way to clean all metal parts without fear of high residues or impact to the environment in field applications. With proper agitation, pipe sections can be flushed clean with a 3% to 5% solution. The temperatures can range from ambient to 145° F. In addition, smaller hoses and parts can be submerged or sprayed in systems previously described.
SRS Industrial Cleaner/ Degreaser leaves a minimum of non-volatile residue for corrosion protection. In most cases this inhibitor does not have to be removed prior to subsequent metal finishing operations. After parts become completely dry, they are protected from rust for approximately 7 to 15 days. These parts can then be coated or bonded with no further treatment.
While oil and grease are readily “lifted” from parts by SRS Industrial Cleaner / Degreaser, the cleaning quality can deteriorate rapidly if contaminants remain in the washer tank. In addition, large volumes of waste are created if these cleaners are not recycled, resulting in considerable disposal costs. Systems available to remove suspended oils and extend bath life include: Decanting, Membranes, and Micro Filtration Units.
SRS Industrial Cleaner/Degreaser can be disposed of quickly and inexpensively. After removing excess metal fines and tramp oils, the saturated solution can be disposed of through your sanitary sewer system when local pH ordinances are observed. Unlike harsher chemicals, SRS reduces the potential for regulatory penalties imposed by EPA and OSHA.
