To evaluate successful products on second supplied contaminant
The top seven products based on past testing results were again diluted to 5% using DI water in 400 ml beakers. All seven products were heated to 130 F on a hot plate.
Peweighed aluminum coupons were coated with the Everite Electrolite Salt mixture using a handheld swab. The contaminant was allowed to dry for about 10 minutes. Once dry, the coupons were weighed a second time to determine the amount of oil applied.
Three coupons were immersed into each solution and cleaned for 5 minutes using stir-bar agitation. Rinsing was performed for 15 seconds using tap water heated to 120 F and followed by 30 seconds of air blow off with dry compressed air at room temperature. Final weights were recorded, and efficiencies were calculated for each coupon cleaned.
All seven products were effective at removing the salt mixture from the aluminum coupons within 5 minutes of immersion cleaning. The table lists the amount of soil added, the amount remaining and the efficiency for each coupon cleaned.
|Cleaner||Initial wt||Final wt||% Removed|
|SC Aircraft & Metal Cleaner||0.2508||0.0004||99.84|
|Ozzy Juice SW-3||0.2918||-0.0004||100.14|
Success Rating:Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
The top six products will be evaluated on the third supplied contaminant under the same cleaning conditions.
