Introduction of Chemical Cleaning

Chemical cleaning is a process of using pigs in conjunction with environmentally friendly detergent-based cleaning fluids method to derive surfaces and walls of equipment, pipelines, vessels, kettles and heat exchangers of unwanted contaminants. Chemical cleaning also means the purification, conditioning, treatment or disinfection of water. Some of these treatments include:

  • Descaler
  • Surface disinfection
  • Ozone disinfection/ oxidation
  • Paint removal
  • Deodorizer
  • Degreaser
  • Polish
  • Corrosion prevention
  • Destrainer
  • Tarnish remover

To understand the customer’s cleaning needs and the customers need to understand the type of surface that they are treating and what kind of excess or unwanted material they want to get rid of. We always recommend customers evaluate their situation, and the objective that they want to achieve so we can able conclude the right solution for them. Especially in Singapore, the most commonly excesses that they usually want to get rid of are grease, rust and stain. By examining the cause, surfaces and objective, the proposed solution would be more effective at getting rid of those excesses and it’s more cost-effective in the long term.

Another cleaning process that is usually neglected by customers and cleaners is protection. Most solution ends with the surface cleaned however, we have to look past the ‘clean’ as an endpoint, make ‘protection’ as the endpoint of the cleaning process, especially in today’s situation where viricidal spreading occurred at such intensity. Protection in cleaning treatment include:

  • Disinfection protection (Bactericidal, Yeasticidal and Viricidal)
  • Corrosion protection
  • Deodorizer
  • Bitumen protection
  • Peelable protection
  • Protective varnish
  • Cooling system protection
  • Grease protection
  • Waterproof protection
  • Softener and Conditioner
