Our Degreasers are powerful water based, non-hazardous & cleaners that are free from toxic or hazardous chemicals making it safe to use & eco-friendly.
All are Highly concentrated - enabling them to be diluted down to suit the application (without damaging materials & surfaces) & are highly effective at removing stubborn hydrocarbon stains from highly soiled environments.
Quick Break (Rig Wash) degreasers are specially designed biodegradable surfactant cleaners that enables the rapid separation of oil, grease, & other hydrocarbon soils from surfaces being cleaned without forming a permanent emulsion. Once the oil & water has been rinsed away the degreaser rapidly releases the oil again, allowing it to be separated. This results in wastewater that contains little to no toxic hydrocarbon content that easily meets environmental requirements.
The right choice of degreaser has a direct impact on wastewater quality &, therefore, waste water compliance & disposal costs. Depending on your location & whether you are in a marine or land environments the limits on oil, grease & hydrocarbon content in wastewater vary. In all cases, however, they are very restrictive.
For wastewater oil content to be compliant it is usually necessary to process waste through an oil water separator prior to discharge. The ability of oil water separators to function, however, depends entirely on the nature of the wastewater itself. If oils are held in emulsion or dissolved within the wastewater by an emulsifying surfactant or solvent, an oil water separator will be almost completely ineffective.
For an oil water separator to function correctly, oil must be free to rise to the surface & coalesce into larger & larger droplets. Quick break degreasers only form a short-term oil emulsion which persist just long enough to remove the oil & grease from the cleaning surface. Once in the wastewater system, however, quick break degreasers quickly release these oils again where they float free & can be separated.
For optimal oil water separation & wastewater quality an industrial degreaser should:
Bio based, colloidal surfactants are the best choice of degreaser for optimal wastewater quality. Specific formulations of advanced surfactants can be so effective at removing oil that it does away with the need for many of the less desirable ingredients in other degreasing products.
When mixed with water these degreasing surfactants form a particular type of electrochemical structure called a “micelle”. These micelles energetically lift soils from cleaning surfaces with as much, or more power than harsh caustics, metasilicates & other salt-based cleaners.
The Triple7 range of colloidal surfactant degreasers & cleaners take advantage of this unique micelle property.
What’s more our products are:
The quick break properties of our industrial degreaser & cleaner range also optimizes the performance of oil water separators which can drastically reduce the costs associated with wastewater disposal.
The best choice of degreaser can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in wastewater treatment & disposal.
We have two specific Triple7 Quick-Break degreasers suited for equipment washdown with disposal to sewer
As an example of application, all airports in Australia that have fire engine services use T7 Metallic Touch specified for wash down on tarmac, whereas T7 All Purpose Degreaser is typically specified into earth moving equipment type of locations.
