Industrial degreasing is a specialized cleaning process that removes unwanted grease, tar, oils, hydraulic fluid, cutting fluids, corrosion inhibitors and other greasy buildup.
These contaminants can wreak all kinds of havoc:
- Disguise potential problems like engine or hydraulic leaks.
- Cause workplace safety hazards like fires or operator injuries.
- Gum up machinery and degrade performance.
- Diminish the life and value of industrial assets.
- Lead to inspection failures and potential fines, even legal action.
The trained and skilled industrial degreasing and cleaning specialists at Painters USA have the equipment, processes, and cleaning product knowledge for any facility.
The path from lubrication to contamination
Oil and other industrial lubricants are often needed to keep machinery operating and production going. Yet too much of a good thing becomes a bad thing when greasy materials accumulate, becoming a magnet for dirt and contaminants.
Even lubrication equipment itself can become contaminated, causing abrasion that degrades pump and metering systems as metal gets scored and seals wear away. And bigger problems can develop in structures and machinery exposed to the outdoors as greasy materials bake and blend together.
Where grease and grime buildup
All industrial machinery and equipment is subject to oil and grease contamination. And some industry sectors and production processes make the problem worse. If your production and operations deal involve a lot of chemicals, oils, and fats, degreasing should be part of routine maintenance.
