A Chemical Approach

Ultimate Chemical debuts two new cleaning products for compressor valves

Ultimate Chemical knows this drill. While performing a heavy duty flush on a cooling system in the field, one of the operators approached Kevin Heidebrecht and David Vannostran with a compressor valve in one hand, brake cleaner in the other and a question – “How do you clean these? This stuff doesn’t work.”

At that time, the Ultimate Chemical pair didn’t have an answer, but the gears were already turning in Heidebrecht’s mind. Through his background and trial and error, Heidebrecht, owner of Ultimate Chemical, brought a chemical solution back to the operator.

The next part plays out almost too simple, said Vannostran, Ultimate Chemical’s vice president of sales.

“We put a bunch of (the company’s) valves in buckets with our solution. We walked away for about 45 minutes and then went to check on them,” he said. “We pulled them out, rinsed them off and they were clean. They thought we’d have to shake them or do all this stuff afterward. All we did was put them in the bucket and pull them out.”
