Does Alconox, Inc. make custom detergent formulations to solve special cleaning problems?
Yes, Alconox, Inc. will make custom formulations to solve special cleaning problems. Of course we always try to solve cleaning problems with off the shelf cleaners, but if there are special cleaning needs that cannot be met using regular Alconox brand cleaners, then where the size of business warrants manufacturing a new formulation, we will make custom detergents. Typically to make a custom powdered cleaner, a 1,000 lb batch is required. For custom made liquid detergents, as small as 4X55 gal drums or 1,000 gallons packed in 1 gallon bottles can be made. For example, sometimes people may want a higher or lower pH enzymatic cleaner than the pH 9.5 Tergazyme, in which case we offer formulations with ingredients modified to adjust the pH to as low as 7.5 or as high as 10.5. Where a liquid version of a phosphate containing cleaner like Alconox was required, we made a custom formulation. Email cleaning AT alconox.com for more information.
