Industrial Degreasers

Degreasers are at the heart of good maintenance, they prevent breakdown caused by contamination and hidden faults and minimise asset replacement. The better the degreaser, the less time spent on manpower and energy.

Why do customers need good degreasers? Inspection of equipment can uncover abnormalities; these should be corrected before failure (and therefore loss). Use of degreasers as part of an inspection programme will significantly reduce maintenance costs.

In heat exchangers, poor cooling efficiency leads to energy loss; an accumulation of 0.25mm of dirt on a heating exchange coil could result in an increase of electricity use by as much as 40%.

Our range of industrial degreasers covers a wide range of applications. For more detail, take a look at our water based and solvent based solutions overview or speak to one our highly trained representatives to find a solution that’s tailored to you.


Water Based

Penetrate and lift grease and grime with minimal effort thanks to our range of water based industrial degreasers.

Typically non-flammable, water based degreasers are complete blends of detergents and inhibitors. The detergents break the surface bonds of the fats and oils, which are emulsified to be rinsed away. The oils and fats remain in suspension in the waste water and with time can be physically removed by skimming or other suitable form of separation.

Water based degreasers:

  • Remove soil and dirt from most surfaces.
  • Combine heavy duty grease removal with environmental safety.
  • Dilute with water for economical cleaning and use on various surfaces including; metal, vinyl, plastic, rubber, concrete and stone, without causing damage.

Our range of water based solutions take care of your degreasing needs safely and efficiently. We have degreasers and oil separators, low foaming degreasers, water soluble industrial solvents and degreasers safe to use on or around glass surfaces.


Solvent Based

Dissolve even the heaviest grease and soils from parts and equipment with solutions from NCH Maintenance.

Derived from petroleum or natural oils, such as orange peel (terpene base) or pine needle extracts; solvent based degreasers have an affinity with fats and greases by dissolving them to form an inseparable chemical solution. Solvent based degreasers are often comprised of; chlorinated, fluorinated, (CFCs), kerosene, gasoline, terpene alcohols, acetone and esters. Solvent based degreasers can be either flammable or non-flammable, with some having a flash point.

We have solutions with a high dielectric strength, greater than 25,000 volts. We have controlled evaporation rates for effective stronger and longer cleaning. We also have chlorinated and aromatic solvent free solutions for use on food machinery and equipment.

Need an industrial solvent for use in dip tanks and sprayers? Need a solution that’s non-corrosive to metals and harmless to most paints, insulation, hard plastics and rubber? Our extensive range of solutions combined with our technical expertise allow us to provide you with a solution that’s tailored to your needs.
