After chalking up championship wins in the BTCC, including the 2013 BTCC Driver’s Championship, Andrew Jordan has since gone on to set up a very successful racing car preparation and restoration workshop, JRT Racing, with his father. Andrew recently started using Motul BioClean in his workshop, a new environmentally friendly cleaning solution for garages that saves money, is better for people’s health, and is more sustainable than current methods.
"It is not always easy to reconcile environmental protection and our work”
Andrew stated: “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."
What is Motul BioClean?
BioClean is Motul’s environmentally friendly and efficient parts cleaning system, which can be used in a wide variety of applications such as automotive and motorcycle workshops, manufacturing industrial plants, truck and agricultural machinery workshops, as well as by engine builders and transmission repair shops. Unlike conventional and chemical solvent-based cleaning systems, Motul BioClean is a sustainable alternative that also saves on disposal costs.
What is it used for?
Motul BioClean is used for the cleaning and removal of oils, greases and operational contaminations from dirty parts or components. Until now, it has usually been done with chemical solvent-based cold cleaners that are harmful to the environment and people’s health, and have significant disposal costs. They can also lead to fire risk due to volatile liquids, a permanent solvent odour in the plant, and the risk of dissolving plastic or paint surfaces.
Motul BioClean solves these challenges because of its highly effective, environmentally-friendly cleaning performance. 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.
Speaking about why he not only uses Motul BioClean, but Motul’s wide-range of lubricants and cleaning products, Andrew added:
“Involving the right partners in racing is crucial for success. I have Motul branding on my Miglia Mini, and it just seemed like a natural fit for me because we have an exclusive deal to use Motul products across all the historic cars we run. We have 40 historic cars that we operate across various series, and they all use Motul’s products. It isn’t just a case of putting a sticker on a car: the relationship is so much deeper than that.”
