Oil and Grease Removal off Steel and Manufacturing Equipment
Steel Bars Coated in Oil – Before & After Stain Eaters TreatmentOne of our manufacturing clients had some finished steel delivered from China. It had been covered in oil to protect it from corrosion during shipping.
By the time it landed in Australia, it had become contaminated by dirt and was sticky, making the product unsaleable.
The steel strips were 6m long and as there were 1950 of them, it was nearly 12 km of cleaning required. After conducting tests on the best method of removal, we then designed an efficient cleaning process that fitted within our client’s tight budget.
The cleaning system had to transport, store, stack, move, clean and dry the steel sections in an economical manner taking into consideration minimising our handling time, water usage, waste water generated and safe waste water disposal.
The results of the cleaning speak for themselves. The Stain Eaters are perfectly set up to cater for this kind of work.
With the correct chemical application, correct method of cleaning, all the right procedures in place to protect the environment, right equipment and training, these jobs run smoothly on time and budget.
Our Service Restoration Vehicles (SRV) have all the right equipment on board to conduct these kinds of jobs at a moment’s notice and can be diverted when on the road at any time to help you with these cleaning issues.
Our team enjoys getting our teeth into these type of cleaning challenges!
