How to: Clean Aluminum Plate (high volume)

Q. I am interested in a manual degreaser/cleaner for aluminum plate. Please contact me at your earliest convenience with your suggestions. We are looking to install this process into our production line with a high volume need.

A. Using a high volume in-line conveyorized spray washer, you can clean aluminum plate using Citrajet detergent.

Load the wash sump with a 2% solution of Citrajet (2.5 oz/gallon or 20 mL/L). Use a double strength solution for longer sump life.

Citrajet is a mild citric acid based cleaner that does not attack aluminum the way many alkaline cleaners do. Citrajet is low foaming and suitable for using in high volume spray washers.

Citrajet MSDS and Technical Bulletin are available at

Free samples of Citrajet are also available.
