Which Alconox cleaners are low foaming for use in mechanical washers?
Alconox, Inc makes both powder and liquid; acid and alkaline; and phosphate containing and phosphate-free low foaming cleaners. You need a low foaming cleaner for use in mechanical washers that rely on spraying to clean surfaces. If you used a high foaming detergent, the foam will interfere with the mechanical energy of the spray and may leak out of the washer and cause undesirable foam to leak out of the machine. The low foaming cleaners are: Alcojet powdered alkaline phosphate containing cleaner; Tergajet powdered alkaline phosphate-free cleaner; Detojet alkaline phosphate containing liquid; Solujet alkaline phosphate-free liquid; and Citrajet acidic phosphate-free liquid. Typically phosphate-free cleaners are required for phosphate-sensitive cleaning of environmental and water lab equipment.
