MOTUL’S ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY AND EFFICIENT PARTS CLEANING
MOTUL is expanding its product portfolio with a new parts cleaning concept for a wide range of applications. In contrast to conventional and chemical solvent-based systems, MOTUL BioClean enables an employee- and environmentally-friendly alternative that also saves disposal costs. MOTUL BioClean has a wide range of possible applications and can used in automotive workshops, motorcycle workshops, manufacturing industrial plants, truck and agricultural machinery workshops, as well as by engine builders and transmission repair shops. As part of the overall Motul BioClean concept, the supplier offers not only the wash stand and cleaning fluid, but also spare parts such as cotton filters or accessories, for example cleaning brushes, application videos for employees in plants and workshops, and communication tools with which companies applying the concept can show that they are actively contributing to environmental protection.
MORE THAN JUST CLEAN
The removal and cleaning of oils, greases and operational contaminations from dirty parts or components is usually done with chemical solvent-based cold cleaners that are harmful to health. These can not only have negative and sometimes health-endangering effects, such as solvent allergies for employees who work with them, but also damage the environment and generate high disposal costs. Other negative characteristics include an increased risk of fire due to volatile liquids, a permanent solvent odor in the plant, and the risk of dissolving plastic or paint surfaces. Motul BioClean solves these challenges and offers a highly effective cleaning performance as part of an environmentally friendly and efficient overall concept. After washing with a cleaning fluid heated to 41 degrees and enriched with oxygen, the dissolved dirt particles are separated from the fluid in various ways - for example, through sieves, magnets or a cotton filter. In the reservoir of the wash stand, microorganisms in the washing fluid then largely dissolve the grease and oil particles and many other substances from the components.
MOTUL BIOCLEAN - APPLICATION
Against which impurities does the CLEANING fluid work?
The cleaning fluid is effective against impurities such as:
- Oil (also burntin)
- Lubricating and machine greases
- Corrosion inhibitors
- Cutting coolant
- Operational contamination on vehicle and machine parts
On which material surfaces can BioClean be applied?
- Stainless steel
- Painted surfaces
What is the difference to conventional cold cleaners?
The removal and cleaning of oils, greases and operational contaminations from dirty parts or components is usually done with harmful cold cleaners and solvents. These not only pose a danger to people and the environment, but also generate very high energy costs. Further negative aspects in the use of cold cleaners are:
- Danger due to the use of environmentally harmful substances
- Danger due to persistent solvent odor in the plant
- High, downstream disposal costs due to strict solvent regulations
- Fire hazard in the plant
- Risk of damage to painted or plastic surfaces
- Production and management of large quantities of waste and empty containers
What are the benefits for your business?
- Highly effective, efficient parts cleaning through the use of a sustainable and environmentally friendly cleaning solution
- Low disposal costs and time savings due to reduced waste production
- No solvent odor during operation
- Reduction of fire hazard
- Contributes to occupational safety in the company
- Protects employees and the environment
- High-quality, stable wash stand universally applicable – can support loads up to 250 kg
Use in motorsport
"It is not always easy to reconcile environmental protection and our work. The new Motul BioClean cleaning concept helps us reduce both the environmental impact of cleaning processes and the risk for employees in the workshop from dangerous chemicals. We are pleased that together with Motul we are making a major contribution to the environmental protection and still provide the best performance." - ANDREW JORDAN (British Racing Champion)
