Trial Number 1

Trial Purpose:

Test Brulin Compliance and various terpenes

Date Run:


Experiment Procedure:


This trial will test the new Brulin Compliance cleaning product and various Terpene Technologies' products for Paper Mill. A total of seven different cleaners will be used and compared with a control sample. All cleaners will be diluted to 13% and cleaning will take place for 5 minutes at 130 F in an aggitated beaker. After cleaning, the samples will be rinsed under warm tap water and rubbed slightly. The cleaners and operating conditions used are:

Trial Results:

When the felts dried after cleaning, the paper felt samples were visually observed for stickie removal.  The T Square HTF 50 and HTF 321 performed excellent with a very noticable removal of the stickies.  The other two T Square cleaners did not perform nearly as well.  Both Brulin products performed very well also.  The 815 GD performed just as well as the T Square HTF 50 and HTF 321.  The Compliance also performed very well (there is a spot of heavy stickie buildup on the cleaned felt, but this is because there was an excessive amount of stickies on the felt before cleaning).  Once again the Betz 2278 performed probably the worst.

Success Rating:

Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.


Although this trial cannot prove which cleaner will work the best for Paper Mill, it shows that the aqueous Brulin Products may perform just as well as the semi-aqueous T Square products and their current Betz cleaner.
