How Max XT Degreaser Works
Max XT Degreaser is the latest advancement in refinery cleaning technology using the power of water to clean in the harshest environments. Max XT Degreaser is specifically designed to have max effectiveness cleaning coker charges, asphalt tar, paraffins, drag reduction agents, crude oil & tenacious soils, drastically reducing your cleaning and turn-around time.
Unlike traditional chemistries such as mineral spirits, diesel fuel, harsh caustics/butyl, or hazardous chemicals, Max-XT Degreasers advanced cleaning agents harness the power and safety of water and work together to clean the most stubborn areas. This technology is safe for the material being cleaned, the trained worker and is environmentally responsible.
Max XT Degreaser is packaged in concentrated form for cost effectiveness.

The four important aspects to cleaning
Concentration: Most aqueous cleaning technologies are designed to be diluted with water to deliver cost savings. Often, the more concentrated (also described as less dilute) the product used, the better the cleaning efficiency. In the case of Water Works™ Heavy Duty Degreaser, this is usually the case. However, some applications will require a less concentrated (more dilute) solution for better performance, i.e. ultrasonic applications.
Agitation: The addition of kinetic energy (movement) to the cleaning process aids any cleaning activity. Common forms of agitation include brushing, scrubbing, wiping, spraying, or even a flow of fluid across a surface.
Time: The longer the cleaning solution remains in contact with the soil, the more cleaning efficiency you will get from the cleaner. This is commonly called dwell time.
Temperature: As in the case of kinetic energy, the addition of caloric energy (heat) can make cleaning more efficient. As with any water based cleaner, including your washing machine or dishwasher at home, warmer water will improve cleaning performance.
