Bio-Circle unveils three new bio-renewable industrial parts cleaning systems

 Bio-Circle CleanBox systems.

Bio-Circle, a division of Walter Surface Technologies, has added three new bio-renewable parts cleaning systems to its portfolio of products: CleanBox Compact S, CleanBox Maxi, and the CleanBox Mega. These new systems bring Bio-Circle’s eco-innovation to larger industrial parts washing processes.

The ergonomically designed units range in size to ease cleaning and degreasing regular, large, and over-sized industrial parts. Designed specifically for use with Bio-Circle’s water-based cleaning agents CB 100 and CB 100 ALU, the CleanBox parts washers enable companies to cost-effectively replace toxic solvents with a safer alternative and improves cleaning efficacy in virtually any type of MRO shop or production-process.

“The addition of these new parts washing systems is yet another testament to Bio-Circle’s mission of “Making Green Work"  by creating products that help our customers work better and safer,” said Patrick Lapointe, Vice-President of Research and Development, at Walter Surface Technologies. “These new systems, paired with our CB 100 line of aqueous cleaning solutions, help improve the health and safety of workers by minimizing dangerous chemicals. Companies can reduce their consumption costs, and eliminate the need for expensive, hazardous waste removal and ventilation equipment associated with using toxic solvents”.

The new CleanBox parts washers are commonly used in busy MRO environments and in transport fleet maintenance facilities to clean large parts. Part washers are also commonly used in production facilities to clean large manufacturing equipment.

CleanBox is available in three sizes to meet different requirements, ranging from the medium-sized CleanBox Compact S, the larger CleanBox Maxi, and super-sized CleanBox Mega. The Compact S and Maxi are available in heated versions to increase cleaning efficiency, and non-heated versions for use at room temperature. The systems’ robust bodies withstand rugged manufacturing environments and are designed with ease-of-use and ergonomics in mind. The CleanBox Mega is designed to handle extremely large parts or to facilitate cleaning multiple large parts at once. The system includes a foot-petal activation flow-through brush with a funnelled hose to supply cleaning product while brushing.

CB 100 family of bio-renewable cleaning liquids

CleanBox systems pair ideally with Bio-Circle’s CB 100 cleaning liquid or CB 100 ALU for aluminum and non-ferrous alloys. CB 100 contains Nature Boost, Bio-Circle’s exclusive ingredient derived from plant extracts that is on the leading edge of green cleaning technology. It provides impressive cleaning potential at room temperature, making it the obvious choice for manual cleaning, cleaning by immersion, or pre-soaking, as well as for use in ultrasonic baths. CB 100 and CB 100 ALU are powerful, non-flammable green solutions that aggressively remove even the toughest oils and greases.

New Shell Rotella T4 Triple Protection and Shell Rotella T5 10W-30 Synthetic Blend have been developed to meet the new API CK-4 service category for diesel engine oil. Nearly a decade has passed since the last diesel engine oil category, CJ-4, was developed and the standard has lasted well beyond the life of the typical engine oil category. The American Petroleum Institute (API), working with engine manufacturers and oil makers, has completely redesigned heavy-duty engine oil specifications to meet the needs of current and next-generation engines. This has resulted in two new categories - API CK-4 and API FA-4.

Flexible cylinder hone plays critical role for oil and gas maintenance work

Small, abrasive globules mounted to flexible filaments are the key to how the Flex-Hone works. It is available in many sizes and abrasive types and grits.

In the oil and gas industry, ongoing maintenance is often required to remove rust, corrosion and other accumulated material from the inside diameter (ID) of valves, pumps, piping, diesel engines, motors, natural gas compressors and other large bore equipment. Failing to do so can have severe consequences including reducing equipment service life, causing unplanned shutdowns and degrading performance.

Ceramic membrane filtration of produced water for oil and gas operations

Figure 1.

Whether it is for disposal or reuse, produced water treatment has become a major focus in both the water and the oil and gas industries during the past decade. Ceramic membranes, which were developed more than 30 years ago, are becoming an important technology for produced water treatment. In fact, it is becoming evident that these membranes offer some of the best values in the emerging areas of water management for the upstream oil and gas industry, as well as in refineries.

Leak detection on produced water pipeline networks

Water is considered a byproduct of oil and gas production and must be carefully managed. This water is usually referred to as ‘produced water’ and is the largest volume waste stream associated with oil and gas production. Because produced water was viewed as a waste by product historically, the most commonly practiced management strategies were aimed at disposal, rather than beneficial use.

Simplifying safety procedures during planned shutdowns

Development of safety plans surrounding confined space and other situations can be effectively developed by outsourcing safety programs to independent companies.

Planned STOs (shutdowns, turnarounds and outages) are often scheduled for preventative maintenance and new equipment installation that must be performed to keep a plant running and in regulatory compliance. To minimize production downtime, this work must be completed within a very tight time frame. As such, STOs are often feats of engineering, planning and coordination – work that begins many months, even years, before the event.
