Spray Wash Cabinet Detergent is a highly engineered and advanced powdered cleaner that is highly alkaline with an off-white color. It is designed for use in spray cabinets as well as hot baths when a foam-free process is needed. This strong cleaner goes to work fast to effectively remove sludge, grease, dirt, loose carbon deposits, oil, rust, engine varnish, engine paints, and enamels. The advanced chemistry of this powerful formula contains a foam controlling additive that makes this cleaner perfect to use on ferrous metals and on some non-ferrous metals. The goal in formulating this cabinet detergent was to create a state-of-the-art cleaner that could outperform conventional hot vat and spray cabinet cleaners. Only the finest and best additives were considered. This proprietary chemistry includes heavy-duty wetting agents, dispersants, foam control additives, alkaline detergents, and chelating agents.
The powerful wetting agents utilized in this advanced cleaner go to work in reducing the surface tension of the cleaning solution so that it can rapidly and effectively penetrate the grime and contaminants that have soiled the metal surface, thus attacking and removing them with the help of the cleaner’s high alkaline detergents. Additionally, this complex and advanced cleaning technology utilizes dispersants that work to prevent any redepositing of the cleaned soil. The heavy duty chelating additives perform the task of removing any rust and then preventing any possible flash re-rusting. The synergistic combination of chelating agents with the dispersants work in harmony to collect the contaminants and then hold them in suspension so they are not allowed to react with the detergents.
This powerful powdered cleaner has found a strong following in the following industries: machine shops, diesel repair shops, re-manufacturers, automotive repair shops, oil field equipment re-builders, and others. They have reaped many benefits from its use and have found it to be a time saver that delivers superior results. Even though Spray Wash Cabinet Detergent is an extremely effective rust remover for ferrous metals, it is not recommended to be used when any of the following metals are present: brass, bronze, babbitt, and aluminum metals. These types of metals will be damaged beyond repair. It is a highly alkaline cleaner with a pH of 13.
There are various concentration ratio mixtures to consider that depend on the application and the soiled product to be cleaned. The amount of powder to use depends on the application, which could be anywhere from 2 ounces to 32 ounces of powder, to create an effective cleaning solution. Let’s first discuss possible recommendations for spray cabinets. For the average cleaning job, a dilution ratio could be 4 ounces of powder for each gallon of water. Lighter soiled jobs could be 2 to 4 ounces of product per gallon of water. If the task involves removing rust, then the typical usage rate would be 6 to 8 ounces of powdered product per gallon of water.
Next, let’s look at hot vat processes. Depending on the severity of grime and grease to be cleaned, the cleaning solution ratio could be anywhere between 8 ounces up to 32 ounces of product per gallon of water. It is also an extremely powerful and effective cleaner for taking off baked-on greases and soils.
Directions For Use:
Spray cabinets: for many typical spray cabinet cleaning operations, a mix ratio of 4 ounces of product per gallon of water is effective. Depending on the cleaning situation, a mix ratio of up to 8 ounces of product per gallon of water could be used. For the most effective rust removal, try 6 to 8 ounces of product per gallon of water at a temperature of 185 degrees F with wash cycle time of 30-40 minutes. When mixing, powdered product should be added to lukewarm water (80 degrees F to 90 degrees F). The ideal solution temperature should be 160 to 200 degrees F. Sometimes, the product is lost during reaction, so some makeup may be needed. Depending on the process will dictate how often product is lost and how much makeup product is needed.
Hot vats: Mixture ratio will always depend on the degree of soil. Mix ratios that vary from 8 to 32 ounces of product per gallon is recommended. When mixing this product with water, the temperature of the water should be anywhere from 80 degrees F to 90 degrees F. Once Spray Wash Cabinet Detergent has been completely mixed, then the vat should be heated between 160 degrees F and 195 degrees F. This vat temperature is dependent on the degree of soiling and time requirements.
