ROCHEM FILTER CLEANER
ROCHEM FILTER CLEANER is a heavy duty liquid compound specially designed to remove carbonaceous residue formed by oil and other petroleum products. It has extremely high solvency and penetrating powers, yet remains economical and safe for normal usage. Rochem Filter Cleaner is neither acidic nor basic, has a high flash point and is non-corrosive to metals. It can be used either with or without heat.

ROCHEM FILTER CLEANER is delivered ready for use. It is particularly effective for cleaning of Metal/Ceramic Oil filters and permanently fixed Oil Coolers or Heaters. These units are regularly contaminated by suspended particles in partially carbonized oils. Timely cleaning prevents the formation of hard coke like adherents which are difficult to remove at a later stage.ROCHEM FILTER CLEANER 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 FILTER CLEANER 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 does not exceed 60°C (140°F). Nor should heat be used in an enclosed or unventilated area.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Dip Tank Method:
Simply immerse the parts to be cleaned into a suitable container filled with ROCHEM FILTER CLEANER. 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 FILTER CLEANER. To reduce soaking time use heat as described above.
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 FILTER CLEANER 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 FILTER CLEANER 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 FILTER CLEANER to make up for the used up quantity.
When using ROCHEM FILTER CLEANER, 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.
