Industrial Cleaning/Waste Removal

This category includes tools and devices used in the safe cleaning and removal of harmful waste materials generated during the fabricating process. Fabricated metalworking processes can generate several different hazardous waste streams, such as oily wastes, heavy metal pollutants generated from surface treatment and plating, air pollutants from welding operations, cooling lubricants, varnishes, paints, and other contaminants. Equipment used in the cleaning of industrial wastes can include salvage drums, heating chambers, waste oil containers, coolant recycling systems, etc.
