Quick Break Degreaser
Cleaning agents and detergents that do not have the correct 'quick break' properties will allow oil-contaminated wash-down water to pass through most oil/water separators, interceptor pits and oil traps that are all supposed to remove oil.
By using the Global Green Non-Phosphorus wash-down detergent for vehicle and workshop floor washdown and Global Grease Cutter Non-Phosphorus Degreaser for cleaning oil from engines, parts etc, environmental contamination can be eliminated or, at worst, substantially reduced.
'Quick breaks' emulsify (breaks down into ever decreasing droplet size) the fuels and oils. When contained within a volume of water, the 'quick break' action releases the fuel and oil, allowing it to rise to the surface from where it can be recovered. 92% of fuel and oil is released within ten minutes.
In addition to being a quick-break and biodegradable detergent, the range does not contain phosphorus. High levels of phosphate encourage algal blooms such as toxic bluegreen algae. Phosphorus accumulates in water bodies that receive wash-down effluent such as mine site and industrial-effluent dams, rivers, lakes and sewage plants.
