Purasolve Parts Cleaner Delivers Remarkable Results at Dewaxing Trial

dewaxing, wax coating removal

The Client serves a variety of industries, such as chemical processing, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, refining and power generation throughout Australia. The company designs and manufactures a range of high-performance products such as valves, pumps, pipes, fittings and hoses. Envirofluid supplied Purasolve Parts Cleaner for a dewaxing trial of valves to remarkable results.

The Situation

The Client receives its valve bases covered with a protective wax coating that is applied by a manufacturing facility in India which need to be removed upon arrival in their AU warehouse. Previously, the company used kerosene in their parts washers for this task. Whilst effective at removing the protective wax coating, kerosene comes with health and safety risks for workers. It is toxic when inhaled and is a fire and explosion hazard. In addition, since kerosene is a fuel, it is considered hazardous waste.

Water-based products, on the other hand, tended to leave a rust problem after use.

The Challenge

What product can workshop crews use to successfully clean the protective wax coating that will not expose their workers to risks? The company also aims to focus on improving its environmental footprint and needs a product that reduces its hazardous waste disposal. The product also needs to ensure that the integrity of the parts is not compromised.

The Solution

Envirofluid provided Purasolve Parts Cleaner to be used in the cleaning trial. The product was used to clean the valve bases coated with protective wax.

Purasolve Parts Cleaner is a powerful and fully recyclable parts washing solution. Developed to replace dangerous solvents for parts cleaning, Purasolve Parts Cleaner is non-flammable and non-explosive. It is free of harmful and unhealthy chemicals so users are not exposed to health and safety risks. It also does not contain offensive odours.

The product lasts for a minimum of 18 months when used with Purasolve Filters and Parts Washers, significantly reducing hazardous waste disposal costs. Because Purasolve Parts Cleaner is slow evaporating, it thoroughly cleans parts and does not leave behind deposits that cause congestion and damage to equipment.

The Outcome

Purasolve Parts Cleaner was used neat in a soaking bath where the valve bases were left to soak. The product successfully removed the wax coating from the valve bases.
