How to Protect a Plumbing System in an Automotive Shop
In an automotive shop environment, a lot of grime, dirt, and dust gather on the floors around vehicles. If there is a drain on the cement foundation, these environmental elements will travel throughout the sewer system when cleaning procedures are implemented in the shop. Because dirt and dust can move throughout sewer lines efficiently while mixed with water, operational problems don’t happen after this water seeps into industrial shop drains. However, if sludge accesses a sewer system, a major problem will occur since this mixture is very dense and thick. In order to protect your industrial plumbing system, you must have a practical defensive strategy to prevent sludge before the substance seeps into the drains.
Flush the Engine Properly
Whenever a customer has an engine with a major sludge problem, place plastic covers on the ground in the maintenance zone. As a technician uses a sludge remover to get rid of the thick grime, the plastic sheet will catch the substance before that smears on the cement in your shop.
If an engine must be taken apart in order to remove sludge that’s lodged in narrow zones, the technician will need practical gloves that can absorb sludge. Sludge removal procedures shouldn’t be implemented without gloves because any grime that gets on a mechanic’s hands will wash down your traditional drain when cleaning procedures are implemented in the bathroom.
Use a Chemical Sludge Remover
When sludge is very thick, it won’t effectively travel through a sewer system, as the goo will stick to the pipes in the sewer system. By using a chemical sludge remover, sludge won’t gather on the walls in the plumbing system. However, because a chemical sludge is a defensive solution, a vehicle owner must use it before visiting your automotive shop, and this is why your mechanics should recommend a chemical sludge remover after completing each engine maintenance project.
You can protect the plumbing in your auto shop by using plastic covers during engine maintenance projects and by recommending a chemical sludge to motorists. If you need help managing thick oil and sludge effectively in a busy shop environment, consider using sludge dewatering equipment.
