Stainless steel used in nuclear power related applications must be cleaned with cleaners that contain no trace contaminants that can potentially harm the very long term integrity of the stainless steel. No trace agents that could potentially cause hydrogen embrittlement or stress cracking can be tolerated.
Use the very high purity Detergent 8 to clean nuclear power related stainless steel and other surfaces in reactor cavities and equipment. Not only is Detergent 8 free of potentially harmful trace impurities, it is also free of chelating agents that can interfere with ion exchange waste treatment to remove radioactive isotopes from liquid waste resulting from the cleaning operations. See the Detergent 8 trace analysis above at the top center of the page by selecting the pull down menu for Detergent 8, then to the right selecting the pull down menu for Trace Analyis, and hit "go." For further details concerning additional testing on a wide range of other impurities of potential concern, contact Alconox technical support at firstname.lastname@example.org or call ++914-948-040.
