Trial Number 184

Trial Purpose:

Laboratory evaluations of alternative cleaning products

Date Run:


Experiment Procedure:

Basic cleaning performance testing was conducted using ASTM G122 as the bases for cleaning. 

Cleaning: 5 min. immersion cleaning at 120 F with stir bar agitation. (all the organic cleaners were run at room temperature)

Oil - Winfield Brooks Alumtap (64742-53-6, 127-18-6, 111-63-7)

Trial Results:

Observations: The coupons cleaned with perfluorosolve PFS 1 had cleaner on them even after rinsing. This cleaner was used by spraying as there was not enough cleaner to immerse the coupons completely.

The cleaner Westech CT-4721 reacted with aluminum coupons violently and hence were removed after 30 sec.

Success Rating:

Preliminary compatibility tests on substrate coupons encouraging for at least one cleaning chemistry. More in-depth laboratory testing necessary.
