Remove Grease with Ease with NuGenTec’s Alkaline Grease Cutter 2 car engine

NuGenTec’s Grease Cutter 2 is a powerful, alkaline, non-chelated, non-phosphated aqueous cleaner that is easily biodegradable. Grease Cutter 2 is designed for easy disposal and is safe to use on most surfaces including magnesium. industrial, marine, automotive and approved for use in USDA/FDA food processing plants. Many other applications from all-purpose cleaning to removal of grease, oils, dirt, and slime.

Cut Grease with Alkalinity

The alkaline character of Grease Cutter 2 allows for fast removal of greases and oils from a variety of applications. Hydroxide ions penetrate and lift the most heavily caked greases and oils. The most common uses of Grease Cutter 2 include:
  • Restaurant grease 
  • Engine degreasing
  • Marinas - boat cleaning
  • Power washing
  • Concrete cleaning
  • Sump clean-out

The high alkaline content of Grease Cutter 2 delivers a fast-acting clean. Many alkaline cleaners contain silicates, which are not ideal for many applications. Read on to learn more about why Grease Cutter 2 is formulated without silicates.

Why is Grease Cutter 2 Silicate-Free?

Silicates can form a scale that is difficult to remove. If this scale builds around heating coils or moving components, it can have significant economic impacts. Silicate scale can cost money for two reasons:
  • Insulating Effect of Silicate Scale
    • The first cause for loss of profits is derived from the insulating effects that occur when scale builds around heating coils.  As scale builds around the heating coils, it takes an increased amount of energy to heat a cleaning bath, which can drain a lot of money.  
  • Total Halt to Operations Caused by Silicate Scale
    • If a silicate scale becomes too thick, it will need to be descaled and, for the duration of the descaling operation, the entire process may need to be shut down.  Nothing is more costly than a halt to production.
