Advantages:

  • Powerful cleaning action
  • Treatment readily removes debris and slime build up
  • Extends tank life between fills
  • No loss of production
  • Free from silicates and phenol based emulsifiers
  • Essential for good fluid maintenance

 

Available pack sizes: 205ltr & 20ltr

Houghton Houghto-Clean 15S - Water-based systems cleaner - 19200

Houghton Houghto-Clean 15S - Water-based systems cleaner - 19200

 

Houghto-Clean 15S is a cleaner for water-based systems such as machine tool coolant sumps. The product has been specially formulated without the use of phenol based emulsifiers to meet the latest environmental requirements. Houghto-Clean 15S has powerful detergent properties to loosen microbial slimes, emulsify oil residues and suspend debris. The product allows much more effective cleaning of systems and extends fluid life.

 

Applications:

Houghto-Clean 15S should be added at a concentration of 2% to the system, 24 - 48 hours before emptying. During this time, coolant should be in full circulation and production can continue unaffected. Houghto-Clean 15S allows effective cleaning without the loss of valuable production time.

 

Advantages:

  • No loss of production
  • Extends fluid life
  • Powerful cleaning action
  • Safe to use
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Free from formaldehyde releasing biocides
  • Free from nonylphenyl ethoxylate emulsifers

 

Pack sizes available - 5ltr, 25ltr, 205ltr drums

Houghton Houghto-Clean 400 - Emulsifiable solvent cleaner - 60400

Houghton Houghto-Clean 400 - Emulsifiable solvent cleaner - 60400

 

Houghto-Clean 400 is a semi-aqueous solvent cleaner offering both solvency and detergency to clean components. A highly effective surfactant package is combined with refined solvents to give a product that forms a stable emulsion with excellent cleaning characteristics.

 

Application:

Emulsions of Houghto-Clean 400 can be used to remove a wide range oils and dirt. Diluted with water it is effective in both soak tank and low pressure spray wash applications. The use of elevated temperature (up to 65ºC) will assist the removal of heavy oils. 

Houghto-Clean 400 can also be used neat as a cold cleaning solvent to remove heavy residues, greases and oxidised oils. This can be rinsed off using water or an emulsion of Houghto-Clean 400.

 

Advantages:

  • Can be used neat or diluted with water
  • Excellent cleaning action
  • Pleasant citrus odour
  • Low odour solvent
  • Removes most oils and greases

Houghton Houghto-Clean 123 - Biologically Active Cleaner - 60123

Houghton Houghto-Clean 123 - Biologically Active Cleaner - 60123

 

Houghto-Clean 123 is a powerful combination of detergents and hydrocarbon degrading microbes.

 

Applications:

Houghto-Clean 123 has been formulated for usage in drum and bench top parts washers and can also be used for manual hard surface cleaning applications. Hydrocarbon oils and similar organic materials are gradually degraded by the micro organisms within the cleaning solution maintaining the solution cleanliness for consistent levels of cleaning and allowing for easier and less costly disposal of the used cleaning solution. Houghto-Clean 123 is compatible with ferrrous, non-ferrous metals, plastics, composites and has tested compatibility with common aerospace alloys.

 

Advantages:

  • Micro organsims degrade hydrocarbon oil and similar organic materials increasing the bath life and maintaining cleaning consistency
  • Degradation of the hydrocarbon oils makes the disposal of the used cleaner easier, and less costly by reducing hydrocarbon oil content and COD/BOD values
  • Single component formula, only additions of the product are required to maintain solution concentration and mircrobial activity
  • Near neutral pH for improved operator safety
