We can advise you on all questions relating to acid, alkaline, neutral and solvent cleaning

There is no universal agent for the rapid removal of deposits; they usually have different compositions. Some can be removed well with alkaline agents, others better with an acid cleaner. Therefore, the precise analysis of the scales, taking into account the nature of your plant, is the prerequisite for a successful cleaning process. We offer the right solution for all chemical cleaning processes.

Principally: While acid cleaners are mainly used against mineral soiling such as lime or rust, alkaline cleaners have a dissolving effect on most organic residues and fatty soiling such as oil, grease, soot or wax.

We meet cleaning problems with a comprehensive product range for all challenges. Our product diversity enables optimum cleaning performance for all conceivable cleaning requirements. The decisive success factor is always the in-depth consultation before cleaning begins. When choosing, we distinguish between four product groups:

Alkaline cleaners

Our experts for aqueous alkaline cleaning are our KEBOCLEAN products. With them we offer ready-formulated cleaning agents for degreasing metal surfaces in aqueous solutions containing mainly surfactants with alkalis.

Neutral cleaners


Our neutral cleaning specialist is our KEBO LT 711 MOD. An acid- and alkali-resistant surfactant mixture that is used in particular for cleaning and degreasing hard material surfaces.

The specialist is characterized by pronounced wetting and dispersing properties combined with a low foaming tendency. As a non-ionic product, it is compatible with both anionic and cationic surfactants, as well as with water hardness constituents:


Acid cleaners

With our highly concentrated LITHSOLVENT cleaners, you get a highly productive and thus economically attractive solution with less production effort and increased  occupational safety for your employees.

For this purpose, we supply the already optimally adjusted combination products of acid and corrosion inhibitor, so that our customers can merely dilute the concentrated cleaner and then start the chemical sanitation of their respective systems.

Solvent based cleaners


Chemical Tank Cleaning and Recycling of Oil Residues: An unsolved problem of crude oil industry is the environmentally acceptable removal of oil residues in tanks and pipelines. In the course of time highly viscous oil accumulates at the ground of the storage tanks. The capacity of these tanks is several thousand cubic meters.

To this day the most usual cleaning method for these storage tanks is the mechanical treatment to remove the oil emulsive and solid sediments. This method is time consuming, produces emissions and causes high costs for the disposal of the residues.

A solution for this problem was created by Keller & Bohacek GmbH & Co. KG in collaboration with professional partners:

Our solvent-based metal cleaner KEBOCLEAN KB is an outstanding additive specially developed for cleaning tanks and pipelines in which kerosene, diesel fuel or heating oil are stored. This highly effective cleaner provides effective removal of oil residues and scale to ensure optimum performance and efficiency of your equipment.

The composition of our metal cleaner includes carefully selected aliphatic hydrocarbons, surfactants and organic corrosion inhibitors.

  • The aliphatic hydrocarbons provide excellent dissolving and cleaning power to thoroughly remove even the most stubborn oil residues.
  • The surfactants act as emulsifiers and help disperse and remove the oil residues.
  • In addition, our cleaners contain organic corrosion inhibitors that form a protective barrier on the metallic surfaces. This ensures that no unwanted corrosion damage occurs during the cleaning process. In this way, the integrity of the tanks and pipelines is maintained and the service life of the equipment is extended.

The products shown on our website are only a selection of our entire product range. There is no universal remedy for the rapid removal of impurities. Some can be removed well with alkaline agents, others better in the acidic range. The large variety of conceivable cleaning problems and the large number of additives, inhibitors and ready-to-use cleaning solutions offered by us make it advisable to obtain detailed advice before starting cleaning.
The same applies to inhibitors, defoamers, scale preventers, corrosion inhibitors, pickling inhibitors, etc. Depending on the plant, material, product and the type of boiler/cooling water is used, different individual challenges arise. We are well equipped for them.

Talk to us, we will be happy to help!
On request, we can analyze deposits in our laboratory and develop a cleaning strategy based on our many years of experience, taking into account the conditions on site.
