Deep Water Dispersant (DWD)
Surface Washing Agent (SWA)
We clean booms, equipment, gear, frack tanks, boats and ships at most of theactive port areas.
The following cases explain how Accell® Clean provided superior, rapid cleaning results and cost reductions for the client firms during this period. The dollars savings realized were mostly from laborreductions, which occurred because the Accell® Clean green technology simplified the methodsor procedures used by contractors for cleaning equipment and ships. Additional savings wererealized due to either lower dose rates and/or higher dilutions ofAccell®Clean versus other products being used.
It should be noted that the cleaning agents employed before Accell® Clean were, to a great degree, dependent on very high pH chemicals and other actives which rendered them as hazardous materials. We were informed that workers
using the high pH cleaning materials had frequent handling accidents and people needing medical attention and hospital visits occurred on adaily bases. Once the transition to utilization of Accell® Clean took place, we do not knowof one
case where aworker was injured orrequired a hospitalvisit due toinjury from thecleaningmaterials.
