Tergajet Ion Chromatography

Q. Can Ion Chromatography detection method be used for Tergajet?

A. Sodium Ion specific electrodes can be used to detect Tergajet® Low-Foaming Phosphate-Free Detergent, however very good deionized water must be used and there can be no other significant source of sodium in your system. There is about 28% sodium by weight in Tergajet detergent. Given that sodium is commonly found in fingerprints and many other compounds, this may not be the best method to use.  We would be happy to discuss further.

If the substrates are cleaned in a way that would not tend to get outside sources of sodium on them, then this method will certainly work. There is plenty of sodium in Tergajet. Note that there is no potassium.  There is almost 30% sodium citrate dihydrate present and therefore is a good marker for Tergajet.
