Industrial & Institutional

Degreasing Parts


Ideally suited for cleaning protective coatings and grease and grime off of new or used parts. SWR works in parts washing devices without modifications of the equipment and leaves no residue after drying. Oils and greases are forced to float to the surface of the cleaning solution and can be skimmed off for recovery and recycling. Remaining precipitated solids are cleaned of hydrocarbons.

General Cleaning


Effectively removes oils, greases, and accompanying dirt from most surfaces. Can be applied by mopping, with floor cleaning machines, or with low or high-pressure spray. SWR is also an effective internal cleaner of hydraulic and lubrication systems, removing hydrocarbon and corrosive build-ups.

Painting and Paint Preparation


SWR is an excellent choice for cleaning ferrous metal parts to be painted later. After removing

oils and grease from parts, flash rusting while drying is prevented by SWR leaving an

invisible barrier that provides extended corrosion protection. This barrIer can be painted

over without additional rinsing.

Superior paint adhesion is obtained by cleaning parts in a SWR solution. Methods of

cleaning vary between hand application, heated dip tanks, or pressure washing.


SWR is also an excellent choice for cleaning prior to powder coating parts.

Waste Treatment Systems


Effectively separates oil, water, and solids in conveyer traps and floor sumps. Cleaned metal dust, shavings and dirt are precipitated to the bottom, the solution of SWR and water forms a barrier in the middle, and hydrocarbons are forced to float on the top. The efficiency of oil/water separators in plant waste treatment systems are significantly increased. The amount of toxic waste requiring disposal after treatment is also reduced. The solution of SWR and water can be reused to treat more waste materials until biodegradation occurs and it no longer effectively forces oil and water to separate.

universal characteristics

SWR™ is non-toxic, biodegradable, reusable, non-flammable and also acts as a rust and corrosion cleaner and inhibitor.

Maritime Applications

General Cleaning


Cleans oil, grease, carbon deposits, and dirt in engine rooms and cargo holds, on bulkheads and decks, and in crew living and duty quarters. Lifts and removes oil and grease that has been baked on to hot engine parts, steam lines, etc. An ideal non- corrosive cleaner for reusable filters in engine oil and lubrication systems. Salt water as well as fresh water can be used to activate SWR.



Oil and Water Separation


Increases the effectiveness of oil/water separation systems and extends the life of disposable filters. Completely separates oil from oil/water emulsions in the bilge. Solids in bilge (both settled and suspended) will be cleaned of hydrocarbon contamination and suspended solids will be precipitated to the bottom of the bilge. Salt water as well as fresh water can be used to activate SWR.






Well Treatment


When injected into wells, SWR maintains the crude in a fluid state even at reduced temperatures and pressures following treatment. It also relieves clogs due to drilling mud accumulation. Does not physically or chemically alter the crude oil. Will increase flow rates by migrating into the oil-bearing strata and lifting crude oil trapped in the pores of the rock or sedimentary formation. Does not add to hazardous waste disposal problems.



Pipeline Flow Enhancer


Does NOT allow oil and water to mix and maintain crude oils in a liquid state, even at reduced temperatures. Keeps lines and pumps cleaner, boosting flow and cutting maintenance costs. Causes entrained water and inorganic solids to separate from the crude oil, providing a higher-grade product at the refinery/terminal.



Cleaning Oil and Sludge Storage Tanks/Pits


Cleans tank walls using normal spray cleaning equipment and does not alter the composition of the recovered product. The chemical process separates sludge into three components:


  • Cleaned precipitated solids with low toxicity on the bottom
  • A barrier solution of water and the SWR product compose the middle layer
  • Separated oil on the top layer that can be recovered and recycled.


This process does not create explosive gases or caustic fumes or mist. Final bacterial remediation can be speed up by a factor of 10 or more.




Soil Remediation


Removes more than 95 percent of the hydrocarbons from contaminated soils in the first-stage process. Recovered oils may be recycled. Water component requires little, if any, predisposal processing. Total time required for complete remediation is reduced from years to weeks.

Odor Control

SWR products can eliminate most odor problems in water systems due to bacteria and other organisms. The odor is eliminated at its source and not masked or covered up.


SWR works in a different way than products containing a masking fragrance or enzyme products which tend to be very expensive, slow, and less than ideal in terms of effectiveness.


Odor control is also achieved in many other applications where cleaning is performed on food processing equipment or containers, sewage treatment plants, and other waste water treatment facilities.


SWR is able to break down organic compounds that are responsible for releasing VOC’s that are associated with various odors in commercial and industrial systems.


SWR actually eliminates bacteria odor-generating capability by disrupting their cell wall integrity and function.. Microorganism cell walls are made up of organic material including lipids (fats).  The alkalinity and surface active ingredients of the formula breaks down the organic cell walls which protect the internal workings of the bacteria.  Once the integrity of the wall is compromised bacteria can no longer absorb nutrients and eliminate waste. This kills the organism which no longer has the ability to generate VOC’s ( noxious odors).


SWR has tremendous advantages over toxic or enzyme based oil/odor control products that only mask the odors. Enzyme based formulas are slow to work and require maintenance to keep the enzymes active. Masking agents are mostly ineffective and expensive.


SWR will eliminate once and for all the odors and smells associated with organic material including bacteria and other organisms.
