There are clear advantages to keeping the carriages in a railroad and rapid transit service clean. But it’s not just to do with looking good. Research suggests that removing grime that builds up in a metropolitan area can help in lowering urban air pollution levels. With train exteriors and windows often catching large volumes of this dirt each day, rail carriage cleaning regimens can play a useful role in making city air cleaner.
It might seem that boats would require little cleaning. But just because they spend so much time in the water does not mean they are kept clean. In fact, water – whether salt or fresh – can cause a buildup of soils, dirt and grime which, when left unattended to, can cause real damage. But with the right marine cleaning product, this problem can be dealt with.
When it comes to heavy industries, like mineral mining and oilsands mining, the heavy-duty machinery used has to operate under heavy load. This places the systems driving the machinery under extreme pressure, so it’s little wonder proper gear maintenance is an acute priority. But while many identify lubrication as critical, using an effective gear degreaser has a greater impact on ring, pinion and gear care.
Throughout the food processing industry, disinfecting all exposed surfaces is an edict that must be followed as gospel. But while hygiene and food safety are the obvious motivations behind this regulation, the impact is actually much wider reaching than that.
In our first post in this 2-part series on demulsifying at sea, we looked at the challenges involved in dealing with some of the most common ship slop oils and waste water – oily bilge water and sludge. These are commonly found on virtually every type of seagoing vessel, but oil cargo vessels face their own challenges.
The maritime industry is one of the most important elements in the global transportation sector. But like all transport and shipping-related industries, it has environmental responsibilities. As a result, the proper treatment of onboard waste, including oily bilge water and sludge (or ship slop oil) is a vital area of concern.
