Trial Number 4

Trial Purpose:

To evaluate final product on four previously submitted soils as a follow up to other products tested.

Date Run:


Experiment Procedure:

The supplied product was diluted to the five percent and heated to 135 F on a hot plate. Twelve preweighed Aluminum 6061 T6 coupons were coated with the four contaminants, three per contaminant using a handheld swab. Coupons were weighed a second time to determine the amount of cutting fluid added.

Three coupons were immersed in each solution and cleaned for five minutes using minimal stir-bar agitation. Coupons were rinsed in tap water heated to 135 F. All coupons were dried for 10 minutes in an oven at 140 F. After drying, coupons were weighed a third time and product cleaning efficiencies were calculated.

Contaminants Include:
Cinster cutting fluid
Clean Tool II lubricant
Blaser Vascomil 22 cutting fluid
Haycut SW 220 cutting fluid

Trial Results:

The supplied cleaning product was successful on all four contaminants using immersion cleaning, removing over 90% of the cutting fluids/oils within five minutes. The table below lists the amount of soil added, the amount remaining and the efficiency of the product for each coupon cleaned.

Success Rating:

A follow up test, usually based on company input.


When compared to the other products tested previously on the same four soils, the Simple Green product was as effective as the others.
