Non-foaming vs. Low-foaming Detergent

Q. We just purchased Alcojet which is a low-foaming detergent. The one we used before was non-foaming detergent.  What’s the difference between “low” and “non?” Will Alcojet cause a foaming problem?

A. Alcojet® Low Foaming Powdered Detergent is designed for use in automated cleaning applications that require no foam problems. Alcojet detergent has an anti-foam agent that becomes effective at circa 110 deg F (45 deg C). As long as you clean at above 110 deg F, it will be non-foaming. Below that temperature, Alcojet cleaner is low-foaming and can still be used in most automated washing applications without problems.
