Environmentally Friendly Chromium VI Remover

In collaboration with two leading manufacturers of combined heat and power installations and turbines, Eco-Point has developed Chrome-6 Neutralizer. A hazard-free biodegradable revolutionary product that neutralizes carcinogenic Chrome-6 and converts it into harmless Chrome-3. With this innovation, Eco-Point is taking a step towards a safer world.

 

 

 

Remove Chrome 6 using Eco-Point's Chrome 6 Neutraliser

Chrome-6 Neutralizer is an acid-based, biodegradable neutralization liquid for the conversion of harmful chromium-6 to harmless chromium-3. This product can be used to combat source-specific chromium-6.

 

Sustainable Solution

Chrome-6 Neutralizer converts Chromium-6 to harmless Chromium-3. As the acidic product reacts and the dust is simultaneously wetted, the concentration of chromium-6 dust will be drastically reduced.

In combustion engines, the build-up of chromium-6 dust is often present under the insulation parts where stainless steel (inox) parts are also used. The prolonged heat produces chromium-6 from the stainless steel, often recognizable by dust with a yellow color. Spraying with Chrome-6 Neutralizer converts chromium-6 to chromium-3 and also prevents dust absorption into the air.

Special benefits

Recycle IconChromium-6 is converted to chromium-3 and therefore from a carcinogenic to a 'harmless' substance

Recycle IconThe liquid character prevents further dust dispersion

Recycle IconCompletely biodegradable

Recycle IconSignificantly reduces the exposure risk

Recycle IconHelps an employer to comply with the obligation to tackle source-oriented carcinogens

Recycle IconEasy to apply: ready-to-use: can be applied directly from the spray bottle

Recycle IconSuitable for non-acid-sensitive surfaces; otherwise first test for resistance

Recycle IconFree from transport and CLP labelling, so easy to transport, store and use

 

Areas of application

Chrome-6 Neutralizer can be used in industry to combat chromium-6 (dust), where exposure can occur during maintenance and overhaul of:

CHPs (combined heat and power) are used by horticulturists for heat and CO2 in greenhouses, but also to supply electricity. Prolonged heating of the stainless steel in the insulation parts increases the risk of chromium-6 dust being formed. This also applies to:

marine engines

diesel engines

gas turbines

Solution Areas

Chromium-6 is classified as a carcinogen and therefore carcinogenic.

The limit value of chromium-6 is very low and therefore has a high exposure risk.

Chromium-6 dust is released, among other things, when stainless steel (inox) is heated over a long period of time, such as various combustion engines, gas        turbines, CHPs, etc.

Maintenance and overhaul of such systems therefore requires additional protective measures.

Chromium-6 also occurs in paint and preservation systems and is released during processing. This product is not suitable for use on chrome paint.

Dust spreads easily through poorly ventilated areas, increasing the risk of exposure.
