Carbon Remover

CARBON REMOVER is an advanced heavy duty liquid product formula specifically made to attack, penetrate and efficiently remove completely carbon, grease, oil, varnishes and other heavy deposits from diesel engine blocks, gear boxes, pistons, rings, valves, atomizers, pipes, burners, coolers etc. CARBON REMOVER has been proven to be the most effective product in its category due to its quick and complete action. This powerful action is based on a single-phase mechanism that consists of cleaning agents, aromatic solvents, corrosion inhibitors and dye. This way, the deposits are trapped and bound, resulting in complete and safe removal.

Characteristics, Advantages & Applications

  • Effectively removes completely heavy carbon, grease, oil, varnish and other deposits as well as old paint, resins and lacquer coatings.
  • Acts quickly and thoroughly.
  • It is non-flammable.
  • Non-corrosive to most metal surfaces and parts, except those made from soft-mild steel and cast iron.
  • Extraordinary results are achieved under ambient cleaning conditions this eliminates the need for mechanical means, requiring heat.
  • Contains a strong corrosion inhibitor.
  • Water insoluble but hydrophilic.
  • Has effects on some rubber and plastic compounds.
  • Can be combined with a specific range of products.
  • Cost effective, easy to apply and use.

During 1996, chemical tankers were only permitted to use tank cleaning agents, which had been approved and evaluated by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). CARBON REMOVER was evaluated through IMO’s Working Group on the Evaluation of Safety and Pollution Hazards of Chemicals (ESPH Working Group) and found to meet the requirements of paragraph 1.8.2 of the P&A Standards.

Application and Use

A. Dosing Procedure

The quantity of CARBON REMOVER to be used cannot be prescribed, since it must be used undiluted and in quantities sufficient enough to treat the problem at hand. In other words, the quantity depends on the degree of cleaning desired and the contamination level. The operator is basically the one to judge the actual quantity needed in order to accomplish a particular cleaning job.

B. Cleaning Procedure

The application of CARBON REMOVER is carried out using the soaking/immersion method. For this, undiluted CARBON REMOVER must be put into a steel bath, then, the parts/items for cleaning should to be immersed and soaked for between 2-10 hours time, depending on the degree of deposition/soiling. Afterwards, these treated parts/items must be taken out from the bath and washed thoroughly with a high-pressure water supply jet system.

Important Information

CARBON REMOVER is considered highly toxic and harmful product. Operators must always consult the Safety and Handling instructions table before use.
