Blue Gold is not corrosive, flammable or toxic (either through vapor inhalation, skin contact or ingestion). All ingredients in Blue Gold are on the TSCA inventory list and Blue Gold has no B.O.D. (biological oxygen demand) and very low V.O.C. (volatile organic compound is .5% in a .5% solution).
Blue Gold is highly concentrated and can be used at various dilution ratios based on the amount of contamination, saving you from unnecessary waste. Blue Gold has an indefinite shelf life and at the recommended dilution ratio of 5% is about 44 cents per use gallon. In performance tests Blue Gold's tank life was four times greater than the products it was tested against.
Blue Gold helps to keep the equipment clean and corrosion free, eliminating lime and particle build-up on heating coils. Since Blue Gold does not react with the oils it removes, the product can be recycled again and again through filtration systems with little or no loss in efficiency. Blue Gold disperses oils so there is no sludge build-up. When the agitation system is turned off, oils rise to the surface and can be easily removed, while particulate matter settles to the bottom leaving the solution clean and virtually new.
The manufacturers of Blue Gold, who have been making it for over 25 years, have an excellent quality control program to insure each batch made meets the highest quality standards. Blue Gold has been tested to many AMS, ARP, ASTM and company specs. Blue Gold outperforms most caustics, chemicals and solvents, even at reduced operating temperatures, as proven by the Federal Standard Cleaning Test.
Blue Gold can be used in a variety of application methods and is safe for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, does not harm painted surfaces, natural rubber, electric wiring insulation, leather, carpet, silicon rubber, neoprene or polypropylene.
Heated Dip Tanks
Blue Gold should be used at a 1 part BGIC to 20 parts
water concentration and heated to 140 degrees F.
Blue Gold can replace chlorinated hydrocarbons
in vapor degreaser tanks with minor modifications.
Vapor tanks can be easily and economically converted
to a submersion system with the addition of a source
of agitation. It is recommended that 60% of the
tank volume per minute be moved in order to provide
the best agitation. Air agitation is NOT recommended.
Blue Gold in a 5% concentration is a perfect cleaner to use in ultrasonic tanks. The tank should be heated to 140 degrees F. Parts washed in Blue Gold and thoroughly dried are protected from surface rusting for approximately 7 to 15 days. These parts can then be painted, welded or bonded with no further treatment.
High Pressure Sprayers & Steam Cleaners
Blue Gold is ideal for high pressure and steam cleaning applications. It keeps every part of the system clean and free of corrosion, thus reducing maintenance and down time. In application tests, it has been shown that the higher the pressure the lighter the concentration needed for effective cleaning. The following is a suggestion on various concentrations based on the pressure (psi).
|100 deg. F.- 130 deg. F.||1-100|
|100 deg. F-130 deg. F.||1-250|
|100 deg. F.- 130 deg. F.||1-400|
Blue Gold is safe enough to use in hand wiping applications. We suggest however, if prolonged use is necessary that you use gloves as the Blue Gold will take the oils out of your hands. (Most of the compressed gas applications and oxygen related cleaning applications are accomplished with hand wiping.)
