Profit Through Prevention - Best Environmental Practices for Fleet Maintenance: Chapter 04: Aqueous Parts Cleaning: Sink-Top Units
Chapter Abstract: This is clip 4 of 14 for this video. Microbial sink-top units are used like a traditional solvent sink. The solution of these units contain microbes that eat the oil and organic soils cleaned off of parts. This minimizes waste and extends the life of the solution. These units are most effective on parts with light oil, grease and dirt and are used for quick cleaning jobs. Aerosol products should never be used over a microbial sink-top. The chemicals from such products can kill the microbes. The height of the unit should be comfortable for the workers. The basin should be large enough to fit all or most types of parts cleaned in the facility. Pump pressure should be high enough to produce a strong flow of solution. The solution odor should be acceptable to workers.
