Off shore oil rigs dictate a special need for detailed cleaning. It is important, however, that the cleaning method be safe simply because of the dangerous areas that are being cleaned. Off shore oil platforms require the use of an explosion proof power washer for added protection for the employees and the oil platform. Explosions are one of the greatest dangers on an oil rig, simply because of the flammability of oil and the fact that you are in the middle of the ocean. What do you need to know about explosion proof pressure washers?

Keeping the off shore oil platforms free from sludge, oil, grease, and salt buildup is very important to keep the oil rig working efficiently and safely. Combining the pressurized water with specialized detergents helps to dissolve the dirt and debris to keep the oil rig clean and safe. The specialized chemicals that are used to clean off shore oil platforms are safe for the water and the environment, which makes them ideal for this particular use. An explosion proof power washer combined with a safe detergent can make cleaning those substances off of your off shore oil platform quick and easy.

To clean off shore oil rigs an explosion proof pressure washer that gives at least 3000 PSI is needed. A temperature of at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit is required to dissolve the different substances that are found on an oil platform to completely remove them. By going back and forth between cleaning and rinsing, the pressure washers will be able to get the oil rig clean to keep it safe. Doing three to four foot sections at a time will allow you to concentrate on cleaning just a small area, so that you can get rid of the oil, grease, and other dirt. Cleaning for 10 to 15 minutes at a time and then rinsing will do the job quickly and efficiently.
