Directions for use

HEC is a cold, ready-to-use product. Do not mix or dilute with any other substance. 



1.  Isolate the oil supply, disconnect the heat exchanger oil inlet and outlet drain off any remaining oil.

2.  Connect the discharge side of cleaning unit (CU) to the lower heat exchanger connection and fit the return to the CU.

3.  Add HEC to the drum and heat, maintaining the temperature (max 75°C) throughout the cleaning operation for 8-10 hours.

If heating is not available circulate for 24 hours.

When the cleaning is complete, disconnect the lower heat exchanger connection and drain.

4.  Connect a high pressure fresh water supply to the upper heat exchanger connection.

Rinse until water runs clear.

5.  Disconnect, drain and dry.



This method is intended for cleaning heat exchangers in direct bathing.

The advantage of this method, there is an external cleaning and internal cleaning of the heat exchanger at the same time

It is important to complete coverage of the heat exchanger with   GREEN UP HEC

Leave the heat exchanger for 4-5 hours in the bath, the length of time depends on the amount of dirt.  If it is possible to perform

a fluid recirculation in the bath, that will significantly improve the level of cleanup and shorten the soaking time in half.

After completion of the soacing process    in the bath, Rinse the heat exchanger with high-pressure water for the final cleaning.

Product life in the bath can stay around 20-30 days and more. It is necessary to drain the dirt at the bottom of the bath once a week.

The amount of dirt to be evacuated can be added to crude oil.

Topping up is by adding a ready product after checking the level and concentration.


This product is for external use only. Not to be swallowed. If swallowed, drink a large amount of water or milk and seek medical attention. Avoid contact with eyes. In case of eye contact rinse with large amounts of water.
Keep this cleaning product away from children.
Keep the container closed and do not expose to extreme temperatures.
