Ideal pH Range for Ultrasonic Cleaning with Liquinox

15 January 2018

Q. What is the acceptable pH range of Liquinox for effective cleaning in an ultrasonic bath? Our solution hovers around 7 and I am concerned that’s not effective. Also, does the temperature of the ultrasonic cleaning solution affect the detergent pH? A. A typical reading for Liquinox® Critical Cleaning Liquid Detergent at usage dilution is ~pH 8.5. A pH 7 reading on Liquinox detergent would indicate that a notable amount of fouling has occurred from use.

Alconox Detergent for Antique Sink Restoration

04 January 2018

Q. I work at a museum and my current project is to remove both oxidation of copper and what I assume are residues from calcareous water from a valuable, antique sink. From the XRF-analysis, I have identified the sink as having a copper base with a zinc-nickel plating. My primary concern is that I need to preserve the “used” and dull appearance on the sink and not achieve a shiny, “like new” result.

Laboratory Cleaning: Dishwasher Leaving Residue

28 December 2017

Q. We have been using your Detojet detergent in our lab dishwasher all year long. However, recently, we have been having issues with our dishware not getting clean. Have there been any changes made to the Detojet formula? Any ideas why this is occurring? A. Detojet® Low Foaming Liquid Detergent has not had any formation or formulation changes, so we can remove that out of the equation in solving for the source of your new problem. There are, however, many other aspects to consider....

Water Spots on Stainless? Improve Blowing Process

19 December 2017

Q. White spots appear on our stainless steel parts the day after cleaning with Alconox. Right after we clean them, they are dry and visually clean. So, is this next-day residue from the Alconox detergent? If not, can you tell us why this is happening? A. It is fairly unlikely that visually clean parts have Alconox residues suddenly appearing the next day.  In addition to Alconox being free rinsing, any residue that did not get rinsed for whatever reason, would be visible fairly immediately. Most people in similar situations, even though the parts appear "dry and visually clean," find that the spots are from water.

Dishwasher Rinse Aids Interfere w/ Wine Tasting

12 December 2017

Rinse aids work by placing rinse aid residue on the surface of glasses and smallware being cleaned. The residue in the rinse aids left on surfaces are hydrophobic molecules, which stick to the surface to repel water. Less water on the surface, means less water that needs dried, and that leaves less water available to make streaks and water spots.  But there’s a problem...

How Does Tergazyme Enzyme Detergent Work?

08 December 2017

Q:  You recently sent a sample of Tergazyme detergent for a tough cleaning challenge and it worked better than anything we had previously tried. I realize this must be due to the enzyme component. What information can you provide me on how enzyme detergents work, so I can share it with our decision makers / executives who want to better understand why this detergent got such different results?

Removing Protein in Pharmaceutical and Biotech Manufacturing

28 November 2017

Q. How do you remove protein out of pipes, centrifuges and tanks in a CIP environment with water temperatures averaging 20C? A. In a cooler temperature environment, consider adding an enzymatic cleaner to your alkaline/acidic CIP routine. A product like Tergazyme® Enzyme-Active Powdered Detergent, which contains both protease and surfactants, is not only efficient at removing the biofilm, but will also slow down the formation of biofilm and allow the regular cleaning cycle to clean effectively for more cycles.
