TASK RELATED APPLICATIONS
The full scope and range of work that can be performed with RAW Elements line of readily biodegradable, anti-oxidant chemicals touches on all operational areas associated with transit.
These are just some of the chores which can be safely and quickly completed with the power of RAW Element green chemicals.
Anti-fouling & Rust Protection
Marine growth and rust causes a variety of problems for ocean going ships.
Marine growth includes hard, soft and animal growth.
Hard growth includes hard algae that create the relatively thin but hard or flaky encrustations commonly found on hulls. Soft growth includes everything from the thin slime common to hulls, to the hairy and leafy algae that is usually found on the waterline and the running gear of a boat.
Animal growth causes the biggest problems and is the hardest to remove. This growth includes invertebrate organisms such as mussels, barnacles, tubeworms, and others. These organisms can attach themselves anywhere on the hull, although they generally find the best anchorages in areas not protected by the bottom paint (running gear, vents and thru-hulls, bare spots in the paint, etc.)
Rust in turn causes billions of dollars of damage each year and is a constant battle to contain in the marine environment.
Green Earth’s anti-fouling and rust protection coating offers long term solutions to these problems while also offering a wave of benefits including:
Significant reductions in the costs to scheduled and un-schedule maintenance programs
Reduced drag on the hull from a smoother surface means increased yield and lower fuel costs
Faster turn-arounds in port through easier cleaning in holds as the anti-fouling characteristics of this product reduces the cleaning time
Reduced worker liability issues from the constant maintenance cycle using many different caustic products
Extensive testing and certification protocols have been followed including:
NavSea (Naval Sea Systems Command)
This amazing technology will protect against weathering, oxidation, salt spray, stains, corrosion & pitting while reducing hard, soft and animal growth on hulls.
RAW Element's rust and corrosion conversion formula is a great start to reducing the impervious effects of rust on steel. The unique formulation converts rust to a ferrous material and solidly bonds with all ferrous metals to create an impervious layer which temporarily protects metals from further oxidation until the metal can be permanently coated with an impervious rust coating.
There is no need for special personal protective equipment or breathing apparatus when using this formulation and disposal entails separating dislodged scale and debris from the solution prior to discharge to the storm water or sanitation systems. Remaining product constituents will degrade to their natural state within 28 days without environmentally hazardous impacts to the ecosystem.
Bilge & Hold Cleaner
Ships holds and bilge can contain all manner of debris and efforts to keep these areas clean may mean removing and cleaning everything from crude oil to rice.
Bilge & Hold cleaner is designed to remediate and clean all manner of "soils" from the sidewalls and floors without damaging, scarring or altering the subsurface.
Fats, oils and greases will emulsify and then demulsify from in-organics and are easily recovered from the surface. The remaining fluids and in-organics can be safely removed and disposed of without being classified as environmentally hazardous goods.
Calcium & Scale Removal
Calcium & Scale removal is quickly removed with RAW BIochem's readily biodegradable chelation formula. Unlike commonly used acids, there are no concerns of damage to substrates as our chemical will not scar surfaces.
