Oil Field Equipment Cleaning

Accell Clean® SWA was used extensively during the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill for the cleaning of ships, oil booms and other equipment involved in the clean-up, resulting in considerable savings in time and manpower. With an expanded product offering that includes Accell Clean® DPP for heavier duty, tougher to remove contaminants, our products can provide improvements in cleaning efficiency and costs in a wide range of oil field equipment cleaning needs.
These include valves, pumps, pipes and storage tank interiors/exteriors.

Oil Storage Tank Cleaning – Exterior and Interior

Accell Clean® SWA incorporates patented technology that amplifies the ability of surfactants to penetrate, lift and clean contaminants from surfaces faster and more efficiently than other surfactants or traditional cleaners that depend on solvents and caustic chemicals to achieve their cleaning power. Demanding applications, such as oil that is aged in heat and sun, or oil sludge in oil storage tanks, can be removed more efficiently and safely that with traditional solvents or diesel.

Accell Clean® SWA Surface Washing Agent

Accell Clean® SWA showed an outstanding performance in cleaning of various equipment after the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. It is listed on the U.S. EPA NATIONAL CONTINGENCY PLAN PRODUCT SCHEDULE.* ACCELL CLEAN® SWA IS LICENSED BY THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF FISH AND WILDLIFE as Surface Washing Agent for oil spill cleanup in California, satisfying very strict environmental safety requirements, such as passing the test for aquatic toxicity and being non-caustic and biodegradable (www.wildlife.ca.gov/OSPR/Legal, Index to OSPR Regulations, Chapter 8, sect. 885.6).


Accell Clean® SWA is waterborne and pH-neutral, and its safety profile greatly reduces the potential for chemical-related injuries compared to the high-pH products typically used for clean-ups. Accell Clean® SWA is safe for the environment, readily biodegradable and non-flammable.
