Trial Report



Trial Number 330

(Client Number 153, Project Number 1)

Trial Purpose: Laboratory evaluations of alternative cleaning products

Date Run: 05/26/04

Experiment Procedure:
04-AL-OI-IS-5-
Each product was used at full strength in a 250 ml beaker and heated to 96 F on a hot plate.
Fifteen preweighed aluminum coupons were coated with the C.P. Hall Co. Plasthall ESO oil (8013-07-8) using a hand held swab. Coupons were weighed a second time to determine the amount of soil added to each coupon. Three coupons were cleaned in each solution for 5 minutes using stir-bar agitation. After cleaning parts were allowed to sit for 10 minutes for drying at room temperature. The coupons were weighed a final time and efficiencies were calculated.
