Bio-Circle Parts Washer Eliminates Use of Industrial Solvents



Bio-Circle is a parts cleaning system that uses bioremediation, a natural process where microscopic organisms "digest" oils and greases and convert them into water and carbon dioxide. "Industrial workers who use Bio-Circle no longer have to worry about their health," said a company spokesperson. "Employers enjoy lower operational costs, as Bio-Circle eliminates the need for ventilation hoods, breathing masks and waste disposal or recycling.

"The Bio-Circle parts washer also includes a full-service maintenance program for Bio-Circle customers, called Bio-Circle CARE Service, and making it even easier for the industrial market to 'go green.'

Timothy Houghton, President and COO of Walter Surface Technologies International, said, "With the growing success of environmentally friendly Bio-Circle washers throughout our customer base, it was only natural that we follow with the Bio-Circle CARE Service. It means we can 'load up' and take the complete service right to our customers' place of business. It's how we stand by our commitment to our customers, our products and the environment."

Talk-show host and antique car enthusiast Jay Leno, who uses Bio-Circle at his Big Dog Garage, said, "The motto we try to have here at the garage is 'Do No Harm.' We like restoring cars, and we like cleaning parts, and we try to do it in as green a way as possible. I heard about this parts cleaner, and I thought I would investigate it. The secret is in the solution. [The part is] dirty, it sits in this thing overnight and it actually cleans itself."

A Bio-Circle parts cleaning system typically includes a wash basin, bioremediation cleaning solution, internal filters to catch debris and accessories such as nozzles and brushes. Dirty parts are placed in the sink and then soaked with the solution. The parts are scrubbed and rinsed clean, the oil and grease detach themselves from the part's surface, fall in the tank and are then completely consumed by the microorganisms inside the liquid.

Bio-Circle is used in a range of industries including general manufacturing, mining, gas and oil development, automobile and truck manufacturing, pulp and paper, construction, shipbuilding, aircraft and rail maintenance, pharmaceutical and food processing and more.
