ROCHEM CARBON REMOVER is a liquid compound with extremely high solvency and penetrating capabilities to remove carbonaceous residue formed by fuel and lube oil and other petroleum products exposed to high temperatures.
ROCHEM CARBON REMOVER is neither acidic nor alkaline, has a high flash point, and is non-corrosive to metals. It does not require a water seal, and can be used with or without heat.
ROCHEM CARBON REMOVER removes carbon, grease, fuel residues, soot, ash, tar, paint, resin, etc from metal surfaces. It can be used effectively for removing such deposits from -
FUEL/LUBE OIL HEATERS OR COOLERS
FUEL/LUBE OIL FILTERS
DIESEL ENGINE PARTS LIKE PISTON, PISTON RINGS, VALVE CAGE, BURNER TIPS, FUEL INJECTORS ETC.
AUTOMOTIVE AND MARINE ENGINES
ROCHEM CARBON REMOVER is delivered ready for use. It is equally efficient for in-place cleaning (CIRCULATION METHOD) and for soaking of individual parts (DIP TANK METHOD). It may be desirable to heat ROCHEM CARBON REMOVER if you encounter heavy carbon deposits or if rapid cleaning is necessary.
Heating to 49°C (120°F) will quadruple the solvency power. However, it is recommended that the temperature not exceed 60°C (14°0F) Nor should heat be used in an enclosed or unventilated area.
Dip Tank Method:
Simply immerse the parts to be cleaned into a suitable container filled with ROCHEM CARBON REMOVER. Hang the objects in a wire basket or from a wire so they are off the bottom and completely immersed in the solvent. It is desirable to stir or agitate the solvent when the deposits are exceptionally heavy. When clean, rinse the parts with water and then dry by wiping or with compressed air. Stubborn deposits can be brushed away with a stiff bristle brush once they have been softened by ROCHEM CARBON REMOVER. To reduce soaking time use heat as described above. To prevent sludging of the soak tank and to prolong the effective strength of ROCHEM CARBON REMOVER, all loose grease, dirt and oil should be removed with ROCHEM DEGREASOL, degreasing solvent, steam or water before soaking items in ROCHEM CARBON REMOVER.
Remove excess oil remaining in the fuel oil heater to be cleaned by blowing air or steam through the oil side. Connect the recirculation system which requires a circulation pump, carbon remover reservoir and temporary hoses or pipes. (Connect hose from the reservoir to the suction side of pump, connect hose from the pump discharge to fuel oil heater, and connect hose from opposite end of fuel oil heater back to reservoir). Circulate ROCHEM CARBON REMOVER from 4 to 24 hours, depending on the type of deposits to be removed as well as temperature of the circulating solvent. When completed, drain the solvent to the reservoir, then flush the unit with flushing oil, steam or water. If steam is required, admit steam to the steam side of the heater. After extensive use, ROCHEM CARBON REMOVER is likely to get contaminated with sludge and deposits. At this time pour off the liquid, clean the deposits from the tank, then return the liquid adding fresh ROCHEM CARBON REMOVER to make up for the used up quantity.
When using ROCHEM CARBON REMOVER, ensure adequate ventilation and keep away from extreme heat or open flame. Avoid breathing vapors. Do not let eyes, skin, or clothing come in direct contact with the liquid. If swallowed seek medical attention. Store in a cool, dry and well ventilated place.
