Q. Alcojet is not dispensing/dissolving in my lab washer. Do you know why this would happen?
A. When this happens to clients, the most common cause is putting Alcojet into a wet dispenser cup. The caking effect is made worse if the Alcojet does not immediately dispense before running the washer. This causes the wet Alcojet to sit in the wet detergent dispenser cup, cake up solidly and form a cement. When the wash cycle finally pops the dispenser door, the detergent will not dissolve.

Clean laboratory glassware is essential in all laboratories. No scientist, engineer, laboratory technician, or analyst has time to fail an experiment because of contaminated glassware.
Good, well-built, precision detergents (like the Alconox, Inc. portfolio of course) can make up for quite of bit incomplete, inefficient or incorrect glassware cleaning techniques.
We are looking for a laboratory dishwasher detergent that does not contain perchlorates. One of our end users analyzes for trace levels of perchlorates, so we cannot have a detergent that has that type of impurities.
