Our Products Blue Gold Industrial Cleaner

All-Purpose Industrial Cleaner, Degreaser, & Detergent

For over 25 years, the manufacturers of Blue Gold have maintained an excellent quality control program to insure each batch made meets the highest quality standards

Blue Gold has been rigorously tested against numerous AMS, ARP, ASTM, and company specifications. Our all-purpose cleaner consistently outperforms most caustics, chemicals, and solvents, even at lower operating temperatures, as demonstrated by the Federal Standard Cleaning Test.

Blue Gold effectively keeps equipment clean and corrosion-free, preventing lime and particle build-up on heating coils. Since our industrial degreaser does not react with the oils it removes, it can be recycled repeatedly through filtration systems with minimal loss in efficiency. Blue Gold disperses oils, preventing sludge build-up. When the agitation system is turned off, oils rise to the surface for easy removal, while particulate matter settles at the bottom, leaving the solution clean and virtually new.

It is important to monitor the pH of the tank to ensure optimal cleaning capability, maintaining the highest efficiency and effectiveness of Blue Gold in various applications.

01 Safety

Blue Gold is not corrosive, flammable, or toxic (either through vapor inhalation, skin contact, or ingestion). All ingredients in our all-purpose industrial cleaner are on the TSCA inventory list and Blue Gold has no B.O.D. (biological oxygen demand) and very low V.O.C. (volatile organic compound is .5% in a .5% solution).

02 Economy

Blue Gold is highly concentrated and can be used at various dilution ratios based on the amount of contamination, saving you from unnecessary waste. Our all-purpose industrial degreaser has an extended shelf life and at the recommended dilution ratio of 5% is about 44 cents per use gallon. In performance tests, Blue Gold's tank life was four times greater than the products it was tested against.

03 Versatility

Blue Gold all-purpose industrial detergent can be used in a variety of application methods and is safe for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, does not harm painted surfaces, natural rubber, electric wiring insulation, leather, carpet, silicon rubber, neoprene, or polypropylene.

High Pressure Sprayers & Steam Cleaners

Blue Gold is ideal for high pressure and steam cleaning applications.

It keeps every part of the system clean and free of corrosion, thus reducing maintenance and downtime. In application tests, our all-purpose industrial cleaner has been shown that the higher the pressure the lighter the concentration needed for effective cleaning. The following is a suggestion on various concentrations based on the pressure (psi).

Applications & Usage

Heated Dip Tanks

Blue Gold should be used at a 1-part BGIC to 20-parts water concentration and heated to 140 degrees F. Blue Gold can replace chlorinated hydrocarbons in vapor degreaser tanks with minor modifications. Vapor tanks can be easily and economically converted to a submersion system with the addition of a source of agitation. It is recommended that 60% of the tank volume per minute be moved to provide the best agitation. Air agitation is NOT recommended.


Blue Gold all-purpose industrial detergent in a 5% concentration is a perfect cleaner to use in ultrasonic tanks. The tank should be heated to 140 degrees F. Parts washed in Blue Gold and thoroughly dried are protected from surface rusting for approximately 7 to 15 days. These parts can then be painted, welded, or bonded with no further treatment.

Hand Wiping

Blue Gold is safe enough to use in hand-wiping applications. We suggest, however, if prolonged use is necessary that you use gloves as the Blue Gold all-purpose industrial detergent will take the oils out of your hands. (Most of the compressed gas applications and oxygen related cleaning applications are accomplished with hand wiping.)
