Laboratory evaluations of alternative cleaning products
Basic cleaning performance testing was conducted using ASTM G122 as the bases for cleaning.
Cleaning: 5 min Immersion cleaning with stir-bar agitation @ 120 F
Rinsing: 1/2 min, manual, in 102 F water (tap)
Drying: 30 seconds air blow off, 68 F
Contaminant: Ferrocote 5815 LVO
Success Rating:Preliminary compatibility tests on substrate coupons encouraging for at least one cleaning chemistry. More in-depth laboratory testing necessary.
After cleaning, wiping was performed to see if efficiencies would increase significantly. Trial 255 shows these results.
