Learn the proper way to make a 1% detergent solution by following these four simple steps. To make a 2% detergent solution, simply double up the amount! Alconox Inc. aqueous detergents are sold in concentrate. To use, dilute according to package instructions. Most Alconox Inc. products require only a 1-2% dilution for optimal use. For further detail on how to make a 1% … [Read more...] about How to Make a 1% Solution
Q. Do I determine detergent dilution by weight or by volume or both? A. In a laboratory setting, the most common method is to either make a weight/weight dilution (10-20 g Alconox detergent in 990 g of water), or a weight/volume dilution (10-20 g Alconox in 990 mL of water) for 1-2% solutions. In manufacturing situations, often directions are written volume/volume or … [Read more...] about Dilution Precision in Concentration Measurements
Q. Is there any way to "eyeball" surface tension to see if it's dropping when roughly measuring concentration or bath life? A. To numerically measure surface tension, you need a tensiometer and this is the recommended method. Tensiometers come in many varieties including Goniometer, Du Noüy Ring, Wilhelmy Plate and Bubble Pressure. Having one of these for measuring surface … [Read more...] about Measuring Surface Tension without Tensiometer?
Q. What is the optimum percent Liquinox detergent to use? A. As a general statement, optimum detergency is reached at a 1-2% concentration (optimum defined as amount of soil removed per unit of detergent used). Maximum detergency is typically reached at a 2-3% concentration (maximum defined as the total amount of soil removed per area of substrate without regard to … [Read more...] about Optimum Percent Liquinox
