The purpose of chemical cleaning is to remove unwanted foreign substances from surfaces. The required degree of purity determines the choice of suitable cleaning process. Chemical cleaning is an efficient and risk-free method for removing foreign matter such as mill scale, weld scale, oil, grease and dirt from piping and cooling water systems, boilers, tanks, heat exchangers and reactors.
The chemical cleaning spectrum extends from the removal of visible impurities to the creation of extremely clean functional surfaces. Harmful deposits and other forms of contaminating debris can cause damage to machinery and reduce operating speed, resulting in unnecessary down-time and costly maintenance requirements.
