Transit Maintenance

*=required field

Nobody knows better than Techspray the challenges of cleaning trains, signal devices, control panels and anything else that gets covered with grease and dirt. Our contact cleaners are widely used in some of the largest subway systems in the US to help keep the trains running on time.

Techspray offers a variety of solvents, industrial degreasers, and water-based cleaner that allows you to match the right products for your cleaning needs. Maintenance cleaners clean oil and contaminants off of metal parts, printed circuit boards, barcode instruments, switch boxes, gear boxes, and engines.

Our contact cleaners remove oxidation, oil, and other contaminants from contacts, metal switches, motors, relays, generators, edge connectors, buss bars, circuit breakers, scales, and sensors.

Techspray's PWR4 Transit Equipment Degreaser is a single purpose transit degreaser, with strong removal ability of an oxidized hydraulic fluid, carbonized oils and fuels, lubricating oils and greases, and other organic residues. It is fast evaporating, quick penetrating, and ideal for cleaning heavily soiled parts.


FAQ's

What is the difference between degreaser and sanitizer?

A degreaser is intended to clean a surface, so remove contamination. A degreaser is designed specifically to remove oils, greases, and lubricants. Sanitizers are intended to kill various pathogenic agents, like bacteria and viruses. There are materials that can do both, like 70% isopropyl alcohol (per CDC guidelines for hard surface disinfecting), but don’t assume all degreasers will kill pathogens.

What chemicals are in degreasers?

The ingredients of a degreaser can vary wildly depending on the product. Generally speaking, they fall into 2 camps: 1) solvent cleaners – this includes alcohols (like isopropyl alcohol, or ethyl alcohol), hydrocarbons (like heptane and mineral spirits), ketones (like acetone and xylene), and more exotic compounds and blends. 2) water-based cleaners – these include ingredients dissolved or blended with water. Which is best for your application depends on the type of soil and various requirements like performance, evaporation rate, toxicity limits, and environmental regulations.

Is Windex a degreaser?

Windex (or other similar glass cleaners) could be considered a very light-duty degreaser. Glass cleaners can remove very light oils, like fingerprints, but will fall very short with heavier oils, greases and lubricants. Techspray offers a foaming glass cleaner (part #1625-18S) and water-based Eco-Shine (1505-QT) for light cleaning, and products like G3 Maintenance Cleaner (1630-16S), PWR-4 Maintenance Cleaner (3400-20S), and E-LINE Maintenance Cleaner (1620-10S) for more heavy-duty oils, greases and lubricants.
