Gold Edge™ and Gold Edge X-40™

NON-TOXIC * NON-HAZARDOUS * BIODEGRADABLE * MILD pH
Biodegradable Cleaning Solvents Heavy duty natural, biodegradable cleaning solvents developed to safely and effectively remove/dissolve/liquify heavy hydrocarbons including tar, crude, paraffins, grease, asphalt, pipe dope and many coatings from metal tanks, lines and other industrial surfaces. Gold Edge is non-flammable (flash point over 400 degrees F.), non-hazardous, contains no petroleum distillates, is water rinseable and has no VOC’s or fumes, making it ideal for use indoors or confined environments.

Our products and methods have been proven to be effective in virtually all areas of industrial and institutional maintenance including on/offshore oilfield operations, vapor suppression/equipment clearing, pipe/tank cleaning, vapor suppression, concrete washing, emergency spill clean-up, sludge and oil separation, water treatment and soil washing.

Nature’s Edge Industrial™

Surface Cleaner and Bio-Treatment. A unique multi-functional, bio-active product developed to clean hard surfaces, naturally eliminate hydrocarbon contamination wastes and suppress vapors. Nature’s Edge is a concentrated blend of non-toxic surfactants and select, naturally occurring oil-consuming microbes. Potent surfactants in Nature’s Edge break down oils, fluids and grease during the cleaning process, leaving a clean surface and promoting fast, natural degradation by the added oil consuming microbes.

Emerald Edge™

Fast Acting All-Purpose Cleaner – Developed to meet harsh cleaning demands, yet satisfy strict safety and environmental standards. A concentrated blend of non-toxic, fast drying surfactants, Emerald Edge effectively replaces dangerous caustic or butyl cleaners as well as many solvents requiring a residue free finish.

Diamond Edge™

Heavy Duty Alkaline Cleaner – A powerful blend of aqueous, non-toxic surfactants, Diamond Edge quickly cuts through and removes tough deposits of grease, carbon, dirt and grime from industrial surfaces. Diamond Edge is perfect for use in use in high pressure washers for steam cleaning industrial equipment, cranes, barges, concrete slabs, etc. It is also excellent for stripping floor wax and neutralizing acid spills.

Alternative Bio-Solvents

Gold Edge is non-flammable (flash point above 400 degrees F.), non-hazardous, contains no petroleum distillates, is water rinseable and has no VOC’s or fumes, making it ideal for use indoors or confined environments.

Gold Edge X-40

Product#340

Extra heavy duty biodegradable cleaning and sludge liquifying solvent. A safe, biodegradable solvent developed to safely and effectively remove and/or liquify high paraffin/polymer content tar, asphaltines, grease and other heavy hydrocarbons from metal tanks, lines and other industrial surfaces. Gold Edge X-40 is non-flammable (flash point above 200 degrees F.), non-hazardous, is water rinseable and has low VOC’s.

CLEANER, VAPOR SUPPRESSANT & BIO-TREATMENT

An aqueous concentrate that reduces VOC’s/ LEL’s on contact, including H2S, SO2, pygas, mercaptans and other hydrocarbons. Also penetrates and releases layers of solid build-up while inhibiting re-adherence in lines and tanks downstream. Increases profitability, productivity and safety in production and transportation of natural gas and hydrocarbon liquids.

Sludge Liquefaction

Gold Edge

biodegradable cleaning solvent product #300

Description:

Gold Edge is a biodegradable solvent cleaner with no VOC’s, no pungent odors and is water rinseable. A potent, yet mild formulation, Gold Edge is non-flammable, non-corrosive and will not harm common metals. Effectively dissolves and removes asphalt, mastics, grease, pipe dope, heavy hydrocarbons and other hard to remove compounds from most surfaces. Provides a safer and more environmentally sustainable alternative to the use of hazardous petroleum-based solvents and citrus cleaners.

Technical Data:

Gold Edge is a blend of naturally occurring, organic esters and surfactants. The long-chain carboxylic acids and alcohols of low volatility esters serve as softening agents for resins, polymers and asphaltenes.

Surfactants used are non-ionic and non-toxic as a result of the manufacturing process. With agitation, surface tension is released, allowing for the encapsulation, suspension and emulsification of long hydrocarbon chains.  The viscosity of heavy hydrocarbon sludge is greatly reduced, permitting removal by use of pumps.  As a result of the encapsulation process, reduction of VOC’s and LEL’s is achieved.  After removal, surfaces can be rinsed with water if desired without need for a separate detergent rinse.  Gold Edge remains with the oil (free of water) allowing the mixture to be reintroduced as an oil commodity.

Case Study:

200ft diameter crude oil tank containing very thick, foamy crude bottoms could not be pumped out even after adding significant amounts of diesel fuel as cutter stock. Only the added diesel was pumped back out. 5,000 gallons of Gold Edge was added to the tank and circulated (mechanical advantage) using the existing tanks 2” orifices surrounding the base of the tank. After three days (resonance time), 80,000 gallons of liquified crude was pumped out of the tank. The by-product was then sold as a viable oil for refining.

Conclusion:

Gold Edge is non-hazardous, non-flammable, non-toxic, non-corrosive. Safe to handle. Virtually no VOC’s or organic chlorides. Accelerates biological degradation of heavy hydrocarbons.

Gold Edge (GE), Gold Edge X40 (X40)

GE is a non-petroleum based solvent that is non-toxic, flash point above 400f degrees PMCC and will dissolve asphalt at ambient temperature.  X40 is GE with select additives allowing X40 to break down and dissolve paraffin based hydrocarbons and many polymer/plasticizer materials.  According to the scope of work, a protocol can be prepared whereby the products are used separately or together as a system.

Gas Suppression

Nature’s Edge products inhibit release of VOC’s from petroleum hydrocarbons, effectively lowering LEL’s and reducing risk for fires or explosions associated with spill clean-up and tank/equipment clearing/cleaning operations. Nature’s Edge incorporates cutting edge encapsulation technology to provide superior results with less agitation than similar products. Additionally, “oil-consuming” microbes are added during manufacture to reduce or eliminate hazardous components in waste discharge, lowering disposal costs and liabilities. Also available without added microbes.
