The Crucial Dilemma in the Oil & Refinery Industry
Industrial, Manufacturing and Mechanical facilities often utilize chemicals that pose both long- and short-term health risks to their employees. Most conventional cleaners work fine but are toxic and are not biodegradable. Many “Green” cleaners are natural and biodegradable but not nontoxic (human friendly). Some “Green” cleaners are nontoxic but are not very effective. Most cleaners have single or limited applications.
The use of toxic cleaners and degreasers in Industrial settings pose an inherent risk to the very people they are intending to assist. Research shows that low-level exposure of chlorine bleach produces measurable unhealthy effects and that long-term, low-level exposures can cause cumulative physical damage. Exposure doesn’t have to be substantial to create adverse health effects.
Choosing the least toxic product to begin with is the first step toward prevention of possible short-term harm and almost certain long-term risk. Exposure of toxic chemicals can result in health problems such as asthma, liver or kidney damage and even cancer.

NanoIKP Industrial Cleaner is competitively priced, yielding superior results and is now available as an eco-friendly addition for the Oil and Refinery Industry.
What makes NanoIKP work so much better than conventional soaps and detergents?
- Compared to traditional surfactants, NanoIKP has significantly higher surface-activity due to its unique natural enzymes.
- When NanoIKP is applied to grease and oil contaminants, its micellar nanoparticles automatically dissociate.
- The tails immediately attract oil/grease molecules and leave the water-attractive head outside.
- The heads bond with and are completely surrounded by water molecules.
- When flushed with water, the trapped oil and grease molecules are completely dissolved and removed as a biodegradable residue.
How NanoIKP works
NanoIKP Industrial Cleaner is manufactured using current bimolecular nanotechnology.
Nano—technology creates extremely small particles made from natural plant oils, plants oils and extractions. By creating a colloidal micelle, the characteristics are changed so that the tiny spherical particles are both hydrophobic and hydrophilic chemical properties. They form mild solutions that dissolve heavy grease, oil and other hydrocarbons. The dissolved oil becomes biodegradable and breaks down into nitrate, dissolved oxygen, carbon dioxide and water.
This powerful, totally non-‐toxic surfactant is a unique combination of natural ingredients formulated using a proprietary process. Our proprietary and unique formula results in a specialized chemical reaction that produces super surface-‐active amphiphilic molecules (can mix with both oil and water). These molecules have a water-‐attractive (hydrophilic) head and an oil-‐attractive (hydrophobic) tail.
They appear structurally similar to conventional soap, detergent and surfactant molecules but are many times smaller than them. Prior to actual application they form micellar nanoparticles with the heads outside and tails inside. These nanoparticles form mild solutions that dissolve heavy grease, oil and other hydrocarbons. The dissolved oil becomes biodegradable and breaks down into nitrate, dissolved oxygen, carbon dioxide and water.
Because of their extremely small size they work much more effectively and efficiently than conventional soaps, detergents and surfactants. The average diameter of has been measured to be approximately 4 nanometers.
The micelle size of NanoIKP surfactants was obtained by Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) Technique. DLS measurements were performed on a Proton Correlation Spectrometer with a BI9000 AT Digital Correlator (Brookhaven Instruments) equipped with a Compass 315M—150 Laser (Coherent Technologies), which provides a green light source (λ=532nm).
A 4-nanometer diameter micelle has resulted in an unsurpassed level of dispersion and biodegradability of nonpolar hydrocarbon molecules in water due to its powerful super surface activity.
Compared to conventional surfactants, NanoIKP Industrial Cleaner has significantly higher surface activity due to its unique natural enzymes. When NanoIKP Industrial Cleaner is applied to grease and oil contaminants, its micellar nanoparticles automatically dissociate. The tails immediately attract oil/grease molecules and leave the water attractive head outside. The heads bond with and are completely surrounded by water molecules.
When flushed with water, the trapped oil and grease molecules are completely dissolved and removed as a biodegradable residue. Due to their submicroscopic size, oil and grease particles are broken down into particles much smaller and dispersible than with other surfactants and thus are much more readily biodegradable under natural conditions.
