THE PROBLEM: Day-to-day blockages leading from kitchen sinks, washroom basins, toilets, showers, gullies and drains: These types of blockages can be caused by a wide range of organic waste. They will typically occur within kitchen and washroom pipework, due to the large quantity of food waste and other organic waste that regularly enters the drainage system.
Such blockages are often dealt with using sulphuric or hydrochloric acid based drain cleaners. However, these types of drain cleaners have to be used under strictly controlled conditions, and come with risks attached: they can damage stainless steel and chrome surfaces - they can also melt plastic pipework. There is also risk for the user: they will give off harmful fumes when used - they can also cause severe damage to the skin.
THE SOLUTION. ORPHEUS - Alkaline Drain Cleaner: Several years ago Chemassist® launched their first NON ACID drain cleaner called ORPHEUS – an extremely versatile alkaline based industrial drain cleaner. ORPHEUS achieves exactly the same results as sulphuric and hydrochloric acid based drain cleaners - but will not melt plastic pipework or damage metals.
And compared with sulphuric or hydrochloric acid based drain cleaners ORPHEUS is also safer for the user - it does not give off harmful fumes and requires the minimum of safety measures. This helps to achieve Chemassist’s primary objective - to make the working environment as safe as possible, and to minimise the occurrence of harsh acid attacks.
