The build up of oils can cause gears to get stuck. Grease drips on the floor can also be a hazard. Because water cannot remove grease, a strong industrial degreaser is required. But with so many brands available on the market, how do you choose the right industrial degreaser? Here are some features to look for:

  • Deodorized – Most degreasers are made of xylene and kerosene. Although effective, they can become a health hazard to your workers. Find an industrial degreaser that has minimal or no harsh smells.
  • Solvent-based – Degreasers need to be solvent based to be effective. If you choose a water-based solvent, it might not do a very thorough job.
  • Ready-to-use – Some degreasers need to be mixed to be effective. Save time at work by purchasing ready-to-use degreasers and cleaners. They should have a clear or colourless appearance with a tinge of yellow liquid.
  • Rinses freely – Choose an industrial degreaser that is easy to rinse off. Some degreasers can effectively removed oils but leave residue behind, causing the slipperiness.

An effective industrial degreaser should be able to dissolve petroleum-based contaminants. The key is to find a chemical manufacturing company that can offer the right industrial degreaser. How do you do this? Try asking other industrial sites where they get their degreasers. You can also check online for chemical manufacturing companies and see if they specialise in serving heavy industries, such as mining, forestry, wood processing, and paving. Read testimonials about the company to get a sense of how satisfied their customers are.

A chemical manufacturing and distribution company should have excellent customer service. Some companies will tailor your chemical degreaser to suit your needs. Although it is important that the degreaser is effective, you should also think about how safe it is for your workers. Check the health and safety as well quality of all the products of the manufacturer. Ask them who their suppliers are or where they have their products manufactured. It is best to make a short list of chemical manufacturing companies to be able to compare the quality of products as well as the prices. When it comes to industrial degreasers, value is more important than just the price. Remember—you get what you pay for.
