HSE EIS21 Immersion & Cold Cleaning of Engineering Components
This HSE leaflet outlines the main health and safety hazards and risks involved in cold cleaning operations. It includes the legal requirements applying to this work, which aim to minimise the risks to health and risks from fire and explosion.
Cleaning and degreasing metal and other parts by dipping, soaking or spraying them with liquid cleaners is common. It is often referred to as ‘immersion’ or ‘cold’ cleaning (although the cleaning liquids are sometimes warmed). Many other components have to be degreased or cleaned in situ on plant or equipment.
