Gear Cleaning Solutions & Cleaners

High-performance cleaners, degreasers, and gear cleaner removing solvents

Protecting Your Equipment Means Protecting Your Business

Gear cleaning is a critical part of your industry. Not only do cleaned gears help your machinery and equipment work at peak performance, but there are other pressures as well. Gear cleaning is undertaken to meet insurance and warranty checks, when lubricants become contaminated, and for their regularly scheduled maintenance and repair. But these gear cleaning projects include costly lost production time.

Creating More Efficiency in Gear Cleaning

We have devised a solution to this problem through innovated and customized gear cleaning programs. In the past, gear cleaning used to take days, but now it can be completed within hours with specialized solutions such as Traxol EP3 and our unique cleaning program. By implementing our patented “Clean-On-The-Fly” process and using our specially designed cleaners, gears are safe from damage. As a result, cleaning gears doesn’t cause harm or revenue loss—they’re ready when you need them.
