An active industrial facility in the San Fernando Valley north of Los Angeles was impacted by tetrachloroethylene (PCE) degreasing operations. A phased approach to multiphase extraction (MPE) remediation was employed; Phase I implemented high contaminant mass removal rates with very high VOC vapor concentrations, typically observed in the steep decay portion of influent concentration curve, while Phase II realized mass removal rates typical of lower concentrations observed in the asymptotic component of the influent concentration decay curve.
Elevance expands cleaning ingredient product line with Elevance Clean 1000
On August 4, 2015, Elevance, a BRAG member, announced the addition of Elevance Clean™ 1000 to the Elevance Clean™ Product Line. The new ingredient is a biobased cleaning ingredient that improves the performance of d-limonene formulations, especially when used to remove asphalt/tar and to degrease. D-limonene is extracted from citrus rind and has recently been impacted by the decline in orange supply resulting from increases in orange grove diseases in the U.S. and Brazil. The introduction of a...
South LA: SVE Case Study (C3 Technology)
An active industrial facility in South Central Los Angeles was impacted by tetrachloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene (TCE; former staging area degreasing) operations as a part of its operations. A phased approach to soil vapor extraction (SVE) remediation was employed: the goal of Phase I was to attain high contaminant mass removal rates with very high VOC vapor concentrations typically observed in the steep decay portion of influent concentration curve, and the goal of Phase II was to achieve mass removal...
Kitchen Floor Cleaning Machines: Degreasing Tiles and Stone
Removing grease and other impurities from kitchen floors requires the use of powerful kitchen floor cleaning machines. Today, among the most reliable kitchen floor cleaning machines are the pressure washers and the hard surface cleaners. Pressure washers are perfect for degreasing operations, particularly hard surfaces, such as concrete, tile, stone, and linoleum. Kitchen floor cleaning machines that use high pressure water spray for cleaning floors have pressure levels as high as 1000 psi and flow rate of up to...
Easy Degreasing of Oil Drums with Pressure Washer Degreaser
Proper functioning of large industrial machinery often demands the use of huge volumes of oil to grease the joints and other parts of the machinery. The oil used for various purposes in industrial settings is usually stored in oil drums. Once the oil has been used, the drums have to be efficiently cleaned and degreased before refilling oil. Now, this cleaning process is not an easy one if you plan to complete it using brushes, degreasing chemicals, detergents, and water. The cleaning process can also be extremely...
Degreasing Industrial Equipment Safely and Effectively
Contractors are caught in a bind when choosing machines for degreasing industrial equipment. Industrial equipment tend to get coated with layers of grease and dirt, even with burned residues from petroleum fuels. As such, degreasing industrial equipment offers a great challenge. Therefore, choosing the right machine for cleaning industrial equipment is extremely essential. If you are degreasing industrial equipment using pressure cleaner machines, make sure that you purchase a machine with the following features:Hi...
