Safe Scrub OS split cleaner is designed for use in difficult cleaning applications to remove oil and surface soils that are difficult to emulsify. The cleaner lifts oils from iron and steel parts, then floats the oil residue to the liquid surface for removal from the tank by an oil skimmer or coalescing filter, thereby maximizing the working life of the cleaning solution. Heavier mineral oils, waxes and drawing lubricants are difficult to emulsify, and they shorten the working life of an emulsifying cleaner.

Safe Scrub OS split cleaner is designed for use in difficult cleaning applications to remove oil and surface soils that are difficult to emulsify. The cleaner lifts oils from iron and steel parts, then floats the oil residue to the liquid surface for removal from the tank by an oil skimmer or coalescing filter, thereby maximizing the working life of the cleaning solution.

Heavier mineral oils, waxes and drawing lubricants are difficult to emulsify, and they shorten the working life of an emulsifying cleaner. In these cases, it is better to displace oil from the parts rather than emulsify it, according to the company. This is where this cleaner can offer benefits to the user. By displacing these tough oils off the parts and floating them to the liquid surface, the cleaner doesn't have to emulsify them and its job easier. The end result is longer working life of the cleaner and less oil in the drain, without sacrificing cleaning efficiency and oil removal, the company says.

The cleaner effectively removes mineral oil grinding coolants, drawing and stamping lubes, hydraulic oils as well as water soluble/synthetic fluids. It can be used as a stand-alone cleaner after metalworking operation or as a pre-cleaner prior to black oxide coating. Supplied as a liquid concentrate, it contains biodegradable surfactants, mixes instantly with water and contains no EPA-regulated metals.
