Parts Washer Service

Various machines in industrial and manufacturing facilities require some form of regular maintenance. Not only is this more cost-effective, since replacements and repairs are not needed that often, but it also ensures less downtime, which translates to more revenue. In the process of cleaning however, these machines create certain wastes that may be toxic to both the environment and the people around it, which is why it should be handled properly, and by those who are trained to do so.

Industrial and manufacturing companies utilize parts washers in cleaning their equipment and machinery. The cleaning agents used on these are water-based solutions that can get into every nook and cranny of the machine without destroying its sensitive components. Some of the equipment they use for cleaning these include degreasers, and units for cold cleaning.

Parts washers are normally classified into two: aqueous and solvent based. Washers that are solvent based get rid of machine dirt by melting it away. Such a capability can never be achieved if the solvent itself doesn’t contain naptha, mineral spirits, trichloroethane, and other petroleum-based components, which are essentially toxic and harmful to the environment and to people exposed to these without protective gear.

Aqueous solutions, on the other hand, are divided into two categories – semi or full. They are considered to be more environmentally friendly since these are more water based, and pH neutral. The difference between a semi and a full is that a semi-solution has a small amount of solvent included in it. No matter which type of parts washer service you use, you are still responsible for finding the right New Mexico waste disposal service that will take care of the resulting waste from such an endeavor Finding a company that can handle both is probably your best option.

  • Our company uses ACT for to provide haul away environmental wastes and I'd recommend their service anytime. Adam Brandin is our company's Regional Account Representative who is very responsive. Their pricing is competitive and they do not nickel and dime you for each service that they provide. Other environmental professionals who use them also noted their customer services. So for small or medium company, use them, they provide competitive pricing and very GOOD customer services. For large company which I used to work for, ACT also provided onsite turn-key services as well as hazwaste hauling. Yes, if you use Clean Harbor, it may be cheaper. But the customer service cannot be beat. I put pricey because hazwaste services are always pricey and similar in charge. The difference is the customer service, compliance history, and their intellectual resources.

The event was very successful in both the quantity of prescription medications and medical sharps collected as well as positive community feedback...Citizens were grateful for the alternate drop off location and they were extremely happy to see we had sharps collection. I just wanted to take the time and thank you again. Your willingness to partner with the UC Merced Police Department during this event reflects positively on you and your company’s commitment to public service and to the citizens of Merced County. I look forward to working with you again on future events.
