GreaseMaster R-300 Fact Sheet
Mineral, Animal & Vegetable Fats
Oil or Grease (FOG) Removal
Product Description

The GreaseMaster R-300 is a concentrated liquid which is very effective in applications requiring the removal of mineral, animal or vegetable fats, oil or grease (FOG) and is an excellent all purpose cleaner for industrial, commercial or residential applications alike.

Physical Characteristics

The GreaseMaster is an inviscid fluid with a specific gravity and boiling point very close to that of water. Its primary effective ingredients are derived from organic plants, generally regarded as safe or permissible under Federal Regulations CFR 21/178.1010 and 21/182 respectively. The product is stable and non-reactive with other substances; is biodegradable and completely non-corrosive in concentrated form.

Method of Action

When applied to grease or oil contaminated areas, the R-300 binds to these substances drawing them away when the area is rinsed with water. It will effectively and selectively remove all oil or animal fat substances whether they exist as surface deposits or are deeply ensconced in some other material (oil soaked wood or fabric for example). After several hours of stagnation of the runoff mixture, the oil/fat contaminants will naturally achieve a very high degree of physical separation. (After 24 hours of settling, the GreaseMaster used solution has an oil content of 12.4 ppm, or less than 3 ppm when absorbent pads have been placed in the liquid, well below the EPA's requirement of 50 ppm for disposal into waste water treatment facilities). The contaminants can then be easily and economically recovered for subsequent reprocessing or disposal by skimming.

Handling Information

There are no OSHA, DOT or EPA restrictions in the handling, storage or transportation of the GreaseMaster either before or after use, (assuming that the contaminants have been separated).

Special Features

Because of its nature and method of application, the GreaseMaster has several characteristics which distinguish it from any other industrial/commercial cleaners:

1) From its manufacture to use or disposal, the GreaseMaster is exceptionally environmentally friendly. The product consists largely of waste from organically grown plants. With its ability to act as a de-emulsifier, the oil based contaminants can be easily recovered. Recovery can be used to recycle the oil-based substances, or, at a minimum, to reduce the amount of waste generated by the cleaning process. The GreaseMaster is benign, has almost a neutral pH and can be disposed of as a normal effluent (e.g. into the municipal sewer system) or can be used as a plant fertilizer.

2) The R-300 can be directly applied to heavily soiled or contaminated areas, which typically require 'pre-cleaning' when other cleaning agents are used. The R-300 can be effectively applied even on long standing grease and oil deposits, which have been infiltrated by other materials (sand, metal fillings, etc) and have congealed. Since pre-cleaning often constitutes a large part of degreasing costs (up to 80% for oil tanker cleaning) and man hours, the GreaseMaster allows the user to realize significant cost savings in many applications.

3) The benign nature and physical characteristics of the GreaseMaster allow a broad range of application methods. Approved by the USDA for use as a cleaner in food processing plants; Accepted as a cleaner that can be discharged at the BWTF (Ballast Water Treatment Facility) at the ALYESKA Marine Terminal; Approved for disposal into the tank farms at the Port of Portland; Suitable as an all purpose cleaner for furniture, bathrooms, kitchens, walls, floors, carpets, cars, upholstery, windows (streak free), concrete structures; highly effective and economical in hot tanks and jet washers as well as fuel tanks cleaning.

4) The GreaseMaster does not affect any other materials such as rubber, fabrics, plastic, painted surfaces or human skin. This allows the R-300 to be used where more caustic or acidic cleaners cannot, due to potential damage to surrounding materials.

5) The GreaseMaster provides a one-step removal process when used with a pressure washer in a direct injection method. The 100:1 pre-diluted solution is fed through the soap intake on the pressure washer and provides an instantaneous cleaning of the surface that can then be directly coated. The production rate in this application method is extremely efficient, much faster than ordinary cleaning.

6) As a specialty cleaner, the GreaseMaster's capabilities range from soft coating removal to 'six-oil' or just 'simply' chewing gum removal from carpets.
