Cleaning

Efficient engine parts cleaning

Efficient and careful engine parts cleaning and cleaning fuel system is important for the performance of any engine. Chris-Marine supplies a wide range of cleaning systems to facilitate the cleaning process for maintenance crews onboard ships, in power plants and at workshops. We offer two different cleaning methods: ultrasonic cleaning and spray cleaning:

Cleaning fuel system

Ultrasonic cleaning fuel system

The ultrasonic cleaning fuel systems have transducers generating ultrasound waves. The waves vibrate the cleaning fluid at very high velocity, thereby creating a superior cavitation process. Inside the stainless-steel cleaning tank millions of tiny bubbles implode within the cleaning solution and penetrate every orifice of the item being cleaned, removing various contaminants.

Chris-Marine’s ultrasonic cleaning range covers the cleaning of engine parts like valve spindles, fuel injectors, filters, intercoolers, pistons, heat exchangers and cylinder heads.

Spray cleaning

Our spray cleaning fuel system provides excellent cleaning results thanks to a smart design used together with heat, high spray pressures and liquid flow rates achieved by the built-in pump. The spray system rotates around a fixed load giving a perfect cleaning result together with a very easy loading- and unloading system.

SWM, the Chris-Marie spray washing machine efficiently handles cleaning of small and medium sized engine components such as pistons, piston rings, valve spindles, fuel injectors, cylinder heads, intercoolers, and heat exchangers.

Cleaning chemicals

To get the very best cleaning results, appropriate cleaning chemicals should be used. Chris-Marine offers types of cleaning chemicals to suit different cleaning needs; Ultra Rinse Engine, Ultra Rinse Intercooler and Ultra Rinse Descale.

Ultra Rinse Engine

Ultra Rinse Engine is a high alkaline cleaning chemical suitable for  challenging cleaning tasks. It is ideal for cleaning steel, stainless steel and cast-iron components that have been exposed to heavy fuel oil. It efficiently removes fuel, coke, soot and paint.

Ultra Rinse Intercooler

Ultra Rinse Intercooler is a high alkaline cleaning chemical suitable for cleaning of metals like aluminum, titanium, brass and copper. This makes it particularly efficient for cleaning of intercoolers and turbo parts.

Ultra Rinse Descale

Ultra Rinse Descale is an acidic liquid concentrate based on highly efficient surfactants and inhibitors. This cleaning chemical is often used to remove lime scale, iron deposits, carbon deposits and oil deposits from engine parts.
