Client – Blaenavon Forgings
Project – Industrial Steam Cleaners for Machinery Cleaning & Manufacturing Equipment Cleaning

What did the client need?

Blaenavon Forgings, a leading industrial company, required professional cleaning services for their large press – a 125-tonne ring mill. The client specifically needed the removal of surplus grease, dirt, and contaminants from both the machine’s above-ground level and its basement area. They also requested the protection of motors, gearbox, and floor, as well as the degreasing and cleaning of other equipment within the basement.

Blaenavon Forgings is a distinguished industrial company known for its expertise in the manufacturing and production of high-quality forged products. With a rich heritage and a commitment to excellence, Blaenavon Forgings has become a trusted name in the industry, providing reliable and innovative solutions for a wide range of applications.

How did we approach it?

To address the client’s specific requirements, we at APT conducted a thorough site survey and engaged in discussions regarding the confined entry conditions before commencing the task. Our experienced team of industrial steam cleaners meticulously planned and implemented the cleaning process with utmost care and attention to detail.

Considering the unique challenges of working in confined spaces and at different levels, we set up a gin mill to facilitate access and assist in removing the grease and dirt. For effective degreasing, we utilised an industrial steam cleaner (often referred to as doff cleaning), a powerful and efficient tool that allows for thorough and precise cleaning in industrial settings. The use of an industrial steam cleaner ensured the removal of stubborn grease and grime from the large press and its surrounding areas.

Utilising a variety of hand tools, rags, and the industrial steam cleaner, we diligently degreased and cleaned the large press and its surrounding areas. We employed several effective chemicals, supplied by our sister company, APT Commercial Chemicals. They have been in operation for 30 years, supplying industrial and commercial organisations UK-wide with specialist eco-friendly, industrial products that are made in the UK. We used the following products:

Ultramax 2020 – A powerful and effective industrial cleaning agent designed to tackle tough grease, grime, and contaminants. It is formulated to deliver exceptional cleaning results in various industrial settings, ensuring optimal cleanliness and hygiene.

Citrus RTU – A ready-to-use cleaning solution infused with citrus extracts, offering excellent degreasing and cleaning capabilities. It is specifically designed for industrial applications, providing a refreshing citrus scent while effectively removing dirt, oils, and residues.

Barrier Cream – A protective cream that forms a barrier on the skin, safeguarding it against potential irritants, chemicals, and contaminants in industrial environments. It moisturises and conditions the skin, preventing dryness and maintaining skin health and comfort during work activities.

What was the outcome?

The outcome of the cleaning project was highly satisfactory for both APT-ICC and Blaenavon Forgings. Our meticulous approach, combined with the use of appropriate tools such as the industrial steam cleaners, ensured the successful removal of surplus grease, dirt, and contaminants from the 125-tonne ring mill.
