Project Number 1



Summary: Several alternatives have been identified as working as well as the client's NaOH based cleaning products. Further trials have been conducted in an effort to make the alternatives more cost effective.

Test Objective: Find effective cleaner for potato chip fryer & hot oil system that does not require treatment before discharge to the sewer and is not regulated under TURA

Problems with Current Method: TURA listed chemical and high sewer discharge pH

Purpose of Cleaning: No visible residue left on viewable surfaces. Remove all oil and starch build up from fryer, paddles, piping and heat exchanger.

Product Use: Used to make potato chips

Cleaning Chemicals: Rochester Midland Liquid Chem Brite (NaOH), Descale 90
