Specialty Solvent Degreaser | Heat Exchanger Cleaning

HYDROSOL is a low-foaming, specialty solvent degreaser specifically formulated for cleaning heavy oil residues and fouling. Contains an innovative surfactant blend for enhanced deposit penetration and surface wetting. These properties allow it to quickly and effectively remove crude oil, heavy oil, and bitumen from a wide variety of surfaces. HYDROSOL is also effective on asphaltenes and paraffin deposits.

Not only is HYDROSOL effective, but its high flashpoint provides an added degree of safety over low flashpoint alternatives.  The properties make it ideally suited to cleaning a large variety of oilfield and oil sands processes and equipment including vessels, storage tanks, tank bottoms and floating lids, hydrocarbon-fouled heat exchangers, sludge tanks, and piping systems.

HYDROSOL is ideal for online/in-service exchanger cleaning for heavy hydrocarbon-fouled heat exchangers. Stop pulling exchangers or taking them out-of-service. Inquire about our online heat exchanger cleaning program today!
