Removing dirt and other soils in the engine room is a serious challenge. Traditionally, ‘heavy’ chemistry has been used to solve the problems, such as solvents, heavy duty surfactants and acids, but we are now starting to understand that such materials can have a negative effect on the overall compliance of the ship. For example engine room cleaners that cause emulsion of bilge water and oily waste can increase the amount of oily waste retained on board, or excessive use of acids for black water descaling can have a negative effect on the operation of the sewage treatment plant.
Biotal Marine products all offer a demonstrative performance, safety or environmental benefit and in many cases, an overall cost saving for the user.
A highly effective, water-soluble, non-solvent engine room cleaner based on safe eco-benign® chemistry combined with high-performing bacteria strains to aid oily water treatment and biodegradation of oily residues. For general engine room cleaning that will not have a negative effect on oily water separator operation.
A highly concentrated non-acidic liquid product based on proprietary eco-benign® cleaning technologies. for manual and cleaning in place (CIP) of marine separators, even at low operating temperatures. Endorsed by a major separator manufacturer as not causing etching of separator parts, thus reducing wear and minimising re-soiling.
Advanced acid replacement formulation for manual and cleaning in place (CIP) descaling operations of a variety of on-board process equipment which become scaled during use, such as plate heat exchangers, evaporators, coolers and fresh water generators. The product includes degreasing surfactants to improve scale removal which means there is no need for a separate degreaser treatment.
