Oleonix Rail Freight Company Case Study

Oleonix Rail Freight Company Case Study

Solving The UK’s Largest Rail Freight Company’s Cleaning Issues

We partnered with one of the largest rail freight transport companies in the UK, to help them improve their cleaning process. Operating over 225 locomotives, the company transports large cargo across the UK rail network for commercial customers and public sector organisations.

Due to the volume of industrial dirt, the leading freight train company struggled to clean its freight trains, floors, and platforms. Coming into contact with the most challenging substances, including grease, oil, fuel, excrement, and blood, the undersides of the trains were particularly time-consuming to clean.

The rail freight and logistics provider was using a neat acid cleaning solution that didn’t successfully remove all of the dirt and left acid streaks on surfaces. They were spending too much time and money on cleaning platforms, floors, and locomotives covered in industrial dirt and wanted a cleaning product capable of reducing this burden while achieving better results.

The Power Of ‘Micriolysis’

The Oleonix Full Spectrum Cleaner can penetrate and remove all types of dirt from any surface like no other cleaning product available on the market. Simply mix it with water to activate the power of ‘micriolysis’, the active agent which we created in-house using a unique blend of cleaning chemicals to produce an unrivalled level of cleaning power.

During the creation of our cleaning solutions, we ran trials and found that the cleaner a surface is, the harder it is for additional dirt to stick to it. For this reason, we specifically designed our Full Spectrum Cleaner to go deeper than conventional cleaning products and remove even the smallest dirt particles adhered to the surface. Doing this creates an exceptionally clean surface that dirt struggles to attach to, ensuring that the surface stays clean for as long as possible.

Oleonix Removes Industrial Dirt With Ease

Our team demonstrated the power of the Full Spectrum Cleaner to the award-winning rail freight company, who were blown away by the results. It cleaned their trains, platforms, and floors with ease and was even able to remove the toughest industrial dirt from the undersides of the train carriages. During the demonstration, the company saw how poorly their old cleaning products were performing and were delighted that they could achieve better results with one superior product.

Switching to a single product for all cleaning requirements has significantly reduced cleaning times and saves each site an average of £38,000 on chemical costs. The Full Spectrum Cleaner offers the flexibility to modify the dilution based on how dirty the surface is, allowing further reductions in cleaning costs. The large rail freight company is now using our Full Spectrum Cleaner throughout the business to remove all types of industrial dirt and achieve clean surfaces that stay clean for as long as possible.

What Our Clients Say About Oleonix

So often you read a review and you know it’s too good to be true. My review of these two Oleonix products is honest and unbiased. Oleonix Disinfectant Cleaner: The cleaning staff have been trialling this product and are astonished that long-established marks and stains are just wiping away using this product in its diluted form. It is being used daily throughout the campus to try and eliminate as many germs and viruses as possible, giving peace of mind to our staff and students in these uncertain times.

By changing to Oleonix Disinfectant Cleaner, this will save the facility in excess of £20,000 per year.

Oleonix scrub and Wipe cloths: I trialled these at home and the results were astounding! Each cloth can be used for two very different tasks. My task for them was to clean windows. Taking the rough side to remove muddy paw prints, dead flies and bird droppings, I could then buff them using the soft side. They just made the task so easy.

Both products get 10 out of 10 from us. Oleonix and Cromwell are both extremely professional companies and just do exactly what they say they will: no gimmicks, no waffle, just honesty (that very rare commodity). Their products have saved us time, effort and money.

My company has been using Oleonix Marine Algae cleaner for over 3 years now and there is nothing on the market that performs like it and at the same time is friendly to the environment.We have been able to completely stop customers using Sodium Hypochlorite and other similar chemicals. Oleonix Marine Algae Cleaner is so good for the environment you do not need a permit when using it around the water course. It is brilliant on all harbour surfaces, slip ways, boats, etc.

The Oleonix Marine Algae cleaner is a variant of the Oleonix Full Spectrum cleaner which my company also sell as the performance of the Full Spectrum cleaner is nothing short of incredible on all types of surfaces.

I am using the product to grow my business as it is so effective and we know of a lot of exciting opportunities that are coming to us due to the strength and environmentally sustainability of the Oleonix Marine Algae cleaner.
