Environmental Products

The onshore water table and the offshore marine ecosystem are arguably the most precious requirements necessary for humans to survive on this planet.

Poisoning them makes no sense, whatever your belief may be as regards conservation. Blue Ocean Oil proprietary products are making a difference by changing conventionally used products into greener products and limiting or negating the damage. This has to be a marriage of functionality, commercial viability and environmental protection. We focus on the whole offering. Recyclable drums, Pallets from renewable forests, Biodegradable products, no plastic wrapping and paper labels.

Important: All Blue Ocean Oil products are manufactured to the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) Standard and the factory is Intertek ISO 9001 approved.

Blue Ocean Wash Degreaser

If you feel a responsibility for cleaning up your environment for future generations, then you need to check the ingredients used in the degreasing products you are using. Do your due diligence and ask the following …

Blue Ocean Wash has been awarded the Green SealTM  This product meets Green Seal™ Standard GS-34 based on effective performance and protective limits on: VOCs, ozone depleting chemicals, and human & environmental toxicity. GreenSeal.org.

Is your current product Environmentally Responsible?

If it contains any of the following it is not:

Solvent, Glycol, Nonyl phenyl ethoxylates, Alkyl phenyl ethoxylates, Phosphates, Polyethylene glycol , Sodium and Ammonium Laureth sulphate and so on ….

Some of these products are banned in the USA and or the North Sea, all of them are toxic to Water Tables and Marine Ecosystems. Apart from this solvents are in addition a fire hazard and an additional red flag for HSE and the safety of your teams.

Typical Application:
The data and information provided herein are presented in good faith and is supplied for your guidance only.
Blue Ocean EcoBlue Alkaline Water Based Super Degreaser F has been formulated to be used in very low concentration, it is therefore recommended that you do a test to determine the effectiveness of this product in your particular circumstances.  Generally cargo tanks should be treated/ cleaned as follows:
  • Pre-wash / pre-clean: Practically all cases of tank cleaning start by washing with ambient or heated seawater depending on the characteristics of the previous cargo. Products with good solubility in water can normally be carried out with cold water. The more viscous water -soluble products may have to be pre-cleaned with hot water. The pre-cleaning is basically a mechanical removal of cargo  residues.
  • Note: Some vegetable oils and animal oils (fatty acids) oxidize and “dry” upon application of air and heat. Pre-cleaning must then be carried out with cold/ambient temperature water to prevent residues from drying and hardening. If full tank cleaning in port is not possible after discharge, a quick wash should be given to the tanks to ensure the atmosphere in the tank remains moist. As an alternative, a low pressure steam or limited hand-hosing may be applied.Note: Polymerizing products should be pre-washed with cold water or the tanks should be floodednwith water. Hot water may cause deposits of polymerized material, sometimes very difficult to remove. Note: Vegetable oils and animal oils of non-drying type should preferably be pre-washed directly with hot water.
  • Continue with seawater washing, increasing the temperature where applicable until all residues of the previous cargo are removed.
  • Commence seawater washing with Blue Ocean EcoBlue Alkaline Water Based Super Degreaser F for a minimum of 2 hours. Increasing water temperature increases the efficiency of the cleaning process.
  • Final rinsing with seawater or freshwater (depending on requirements of next cargo), ventilating, mopping and drying is required prior to loading.
Application and dosage:
The suggested dosages below should be used as a guide only because it will vary depending on the characteristics of the previous cargo, the severity and nature of the contamination and temperature of the wash water.
For mechanical cleaning:
Blue Ocean EcoBlue Alkaline Water Based Super Degreaser F is a foaming product, it is therefore recommended to use the low foaming  product Blue Ocean EcoBlue Alkaline Water Based Super Degreaser LF for recirculation washing method.
For manual cleaning:
Blue Ocean EcoBlue Alkaline Water Based Super Degreaser F can be sprayed directly onto the tank walls and bulkheads by means of a high-pressure (portable) pump at concentrations of 1% to 20% with fresh water depending on severity of the contamination. Allow 15 to 40 minutes for penetration then tanks should be washed with hot seawater followed by a clean water rinse. Cleaning should be repeated if necessary.
Manual spot cleaning:
Blue Ocean EcoBlue Alkaline Water Based Super Degreaser F can be applied undiluted or diluted in any concentration as required directly with spray, swabbing or brush to areas to remove traces of concentrated contamination.
Allow 15 to 40 minutes for penetration then wash with hot seawater followed by a clean water rinse. Cleaning should be repeated if necessary.
