Rozone have recently installed Smartwasher parts cleaning machines into all depots of a local Council’s waste disposal department. The reason for choosing Rozone`s parts washer is it`s health & safety benefits over solvent cleaning.
The Smartwasher uses an aqueous based, non-hazardous degreasing solution which is heated to 40°c in the Smartwasher machine. This is the optimum temperature for oil-eating microbes introduced to the system through a filter mat, to work at digesting all the oil and grease washed off dirty parts, effectively recycling the solution. This clever cleaning technology called bioremediation eliminates the requirement of a costly service contract by reducing waste fluid generation bringing cost savings as well as environmental benefits.
With fewer risk assessments to complete and assisting compliance with ISO14001, the Smartwashers health and safety benefits were the real deal breaker. Workshop Managers at the Council Depot identified that the previous cleaning methods used on-site at each of their 6 depots did not offer the same SHE benefits as Rozone`s Smartwasher and Union representatives were looking for alternatives to safeguard their workers. The Rozone Smartwasher was identified and Rozone assisted in supplying a Smartwasher free of charge on trial for evaluation by staff. The Smartwasher was a winner all round – for management as it ticked their CSR requirements as well as for the users as it cleaned as well as their previous method without the health hazards, flammability risks and smell! Since then the customer has stated how much of a difference Rozone’s units have had on the business – in cost savings and happy workers!
After reviewing the job we observed large volumes of glue from a fire damaged carpet had been deposited over a significant area. Traditionally a solvent would be required to break down the glue. Solvents of this type carries a risk of high evaporation and in some cases exhibit a low flash point. Whilst here at Rozone do all we can to make the use of solvents as safe as possible, there is always a risk to health due to the vapours generated by them.
Health & safety and environmental implication is a high priority in our research and development process. In our recent trials, we have developed a modern range of surface active agents (detergents), which was able to break down the glues found on the site. These surfactant can form micelle, which absorbs and break down hydrophobic contents of this particular glue.
By using the most advanced formulation process resulted in a safer, more environmentally friendly application for the technician. This saved our client time and money but more importantly remove the need for hazardous solvent materials to be used.

It makes our job much easier because we can clean a whole bike twice as fast as our previous spray and rag method. We wouldn’t be without it!

The Rozone Smartwasher® has been an incredible benefit for our DIY workshop
Students are able to clean their chains in less than 2 minutes flat, and they marvel at how fast and clean their parts become. It’s so easy to use and the fact that it’s environmentally friendly is the icing on the cake. I don’t see why every bike shop doesn’t have one!

In addition, Rozone supports some of the more technically challenging situations we are faced with by giving direct industry support as well as chemical and microbiological support.
“This can result in large savings for our insurance customers. For example, with the expert advice we receive from Rozone, we are able to support the insurance companies with invalid claims. On one job alone we were able to save the insurance companies significant funds by using the expert microbiological advice from Rozone.”

We have used many of their products and in particular the “Res Restore Clean” a light/medium pH neutral surface cleaner that dries quickly and leaves a great finish, this is a great all round cleaner that has adjustable dilution rates to take on anything from dust to a fire, as the product is diluted this saves us thousands of pounds per annum."
