Special Foaming Cleaners For Every Application

What Are Industrial Cleaners And Degreasers?

Boiler lay up

An industrial parts degreaser is basically a chemical substance designed to disolve specific or broader types of residues into a determined solvent (in most cases water). The use of water based cleaners is widely popular given that they are a cost effective and usually safer alternative to solvent based solutions. The most common way in which water based industrial cleaners work is by having a lipophilic/ oleophilic part and a hydrophilic part to their molecular structure. This causes oil / grease based substances to be emulsified in water and carried away from the part's surface.

What Makes Our Industrial Cleaners And Degreasers Special?


VpCI® cleaners are a helpful line of products that can remove a variety of materials including oils, grease, process fluids, etc. using water based chemistry with no VOC or flammability risk. Having the products powered by Nano-VpCI® makes this line of cleaners specially good to prevent flash rust after cleaning.

How to Use Our Cleaners?

These products should be diluted with water in most cases before use. It is recommended to change the dilution ratio depending on how tough of cleaning is needed to get the most cost effective solution. Please see the options below for approximate ranges of dilution:

• 1% to 3% for very light cleaning, may require increased temperature and agitation/scrubbing
• 3% to 10% for light to medium cleaning or for easy to remove contaminants
• 10% to 30% for heavy duty or faster cleaning
• 30% to concentrate for the very toughest contaminants

It is recommended to dilute with clean water, but typically water with minerals can still be used without affecting the stability of the cleaner. It should be noted that minerals could cause water spotting.

VpCI®-411

Heavy-duty, water-dilutable, D-Limonene based cleaner/degreaser liquid
D-Limonene Cleaner

This product is designed for extra tough cleaning jobs in industrial and commercial applications. VpCI®-411 cleans heavy-duty machinery, shop tools, hoods, parts-in-process, food processing equipment, office equipment, floors, walls, lavatories and desks. VpCI®-411 is very effective in dissolving grease, oil, paraffins and waxes.
VpCI®-411 can be used on all engineering metals and alloys. Unlike other solvent cleaners available on the market today, which are harmful to human skin and classified as hazardous materials, VpCI®-411 is safe to handle. It offers a pleasant odor and is biodegradable. VpCI®-411 is also stable in water dilutions from 5% to 50%.
Heavy-duty cleaning: 20% to 50% VpCI®-411 in water. For heavy-duty cleaning, allow VpCI®-411 to penetrate through the dirt and grime and break it free from the metal surface.
Medium-duty cleaning: 10% to 20% VpCI®-411 in water
Light-duty cleaning: 5% to 10% VpCI®-411 in water

VpCI®-414

Cleaner and Degreaser Designed To Remove Temporary Coatings
Cortec VpCI-414

VpCI®-414 is a cleaner and degreaser that also removes temporary coatings such as Cosmoline™*, Cortec® VpCI®-368, VpCI®-388, VpCI®-389, and non-silicone-based waxes from metal and painted surfaces. (*Cosmoline™ is a registered trademark of Houghton International, Inc.)
Removing coatings, non-silicone based waxes, greases, and other heavily soiled equipment:
1. Spray apply VpCI®-414
VpCI®-414 can be applied at full strength or diluted. It is best applied by spraying or immersion. The most ideal dilution, where one would get an adequate coverage of wet film for vertical and under-hanging surfaces, is 40% water to 60% concentrate. VpCI®- 414 can be sprayed with an airless or pump type sprayer, or used in a dip tank.
Let the product stand (wet) for 10-15 minutes, depending on the film thickness of the product to be removed and the length of time that the coating has cured. Reapplication may be required.
2. Removal of product and coating
The removal of the product and coating may be accomplished with a power washer at the following settings or even a common garden nozzle.
Pressure: 50-300 psi (3.4-21 bar)
Temperature: 115º-160ºF (46º-71ºC)
If coating removed is tacky or remains tacky in patches repeat step 1.
It's available in EcoAir® sprays powered by compressed air that completely replace expensive chemical propellants. This technology is innovative because a four-layer EcoPouch™ is inserted into a can then the can is pressurized. Finally, the EcoPouch™ is filled with the liquid. As the valve is depressed the surrounding pressure expels the bag’s internal fluids until the product is used up.

MCI® Cleaner | Eco-Friendly Cleaner for Concrete Surfaces

 

MCI-2061 is a revolutionary and powerful specialty cleaner in the company’s migrating corrosion inhibitor (MCI) line that safely and effectively cleans oil stains on hard surfaces, such as concrete and asphalt. This cleaner’s environmentally friendly chemistry features biodegradable surfactants, a neutral pH, no solvents, and no volatile organic compounds, thereby making it a viable alternative to harsh, caustic, or acidic cleaners. Due to the surfactant component of the product, it can be used like other hard-surface cleaners. Initial cleaning is performed by those surfactants, while ongoing, secondary cleaning action is accomplished by microorganisms that remain inactive until they are applied to pre-wetted concrete and rinsed according to instructions. These microorganisms biodegrade hydrocarbons, such as those found in oil, diesel, and other materials that stain concrete. Spores that remain after rinsing germinate and continue to erode the residual hydrocarbons not removed in the initial cleaning process. MCI-2061 microorganisms carried away with the rinse water can also work to clean up hydrocarbons downstream in drains and sewers.

 

MCI® 2061

Oil Stain Cleaner For Concrete Surfaces
OLC Cleaner

MCI®-2061 is formulated with biodegradable surfactants and is used like other hard-surface cleaners. The initial cleaning action is due to the surfactant component of the product, and secondary cleaning action is due to the microorganism component. The microorganisms in MCI®-2061 are preserved bacterial spores that remain inactive until MCI®-2061 is applied. When MCI®- 2061 is used according to instructions, the spores germinate into active microorganisms. Spores that remain in the substrate after rinsing continue to degrade residual hydrocarbon constituents of the stain that weren’t removed in the initial cleaning process. Spores that are rinsed away will remain active and work to purify hydrocarbons in the rinse water.
MCI®-2061 is an environmentally friendly alternative that eliminates the need for harsh solvent-based and alkaline cleaners. With biodegradable surfactants, a neutral pH, no solvents and no VOC’s, MCI®-2061 makes it easy to maintain a cleaner and healthier facility.
