Project Number 1

Summary:

Five products were identified and shown to be effective at removing the various contaminants from steel coupons. During the parts cleaning, one product was the most successful under each of the operating conditions. The client was interested in another product they had tried. This product was evaluated and comapred to the other lab tested products. It was comparable to the other products but did not out perform the one the lab identified when tested on the supplied parts. On site piloting may be arranged.

Test Objective:

To replace current cleaning systems

Product Use:

Make Philips head tooling bits
Trial Number Date Run Purpose Success Rating
0 06/18/2008 To evaluate selected products on first supplied soil using immersion cleaning Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
1 06/18/2008 To evaluate additional products using ultrasonic energy on the first supplied soil. Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
10 06/30/2008 To evaluate client supplied cleaning product on all four soils comparing to other alternatives previously evaluated. A follow up test, usually based on company input.
11 06/30/2008 To evaluate supplied product on dirty parts using ultrasonic cleaning. A follow up test, usually based on company input.
12 05/01/2008 Looking to replace their current cleaning line as the process was not effective enough Technology Transfer.
13 07/09/2008 To evaluate top three products under conditions closely matching current cleaning practice. Results suggest a scale-up feasible match for cleaning chemistry and equipment. Pilot plant study with actual parts recommended.
14 07/11/2008 To evaluate three products on supplied parts using ultrasonic cleaning while parts are tightly packed Results suggest a scale-up feasible match for cleaning chemistry and equipment. Pilot plant study with actual parts recommended.
15 07/16/2008 To evaluate selected cleaner on parts contaminated with buffing compound. Results suggest a scale-up feasible match for cleaning chemistry and equipment. Pilot plant study with actual parts recommended.
16 07/18/2008 Follow up visit to determine how to implement laboratory work for company. Technology Transfer.
17 10/07/2008 To evaluate selected products on customer supplied parts using immersion cleaning at room temp. A follow up test, usually based on company input.
18 10/07/2008 To evaluate the two aqueous products from the previous trial in ultrasonics to see if there was any difference in cleanliness. Products were tested on customer supplied parts using ultrasonic cleaning at room temp. A follow up test, usually based on company input.
2 06/19/2008 To evaluate top performing products on second supplied contaminant using ultrasonic cleaning A follow up test, usually based on company input.
3 06/19/2008 To evaluate top products on the third supplied cutting fluid using ultrasonic cleaning. A follow up test, usually based on company input.
4 06/19/2008 To evaluate non-aqueous products for the removal of the third supplied contaminant Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.
5 06/20/2008 To evaluate successful aqueous products on the fourth supplied soil. Results suggest a scale-up feasible match for cleaning chemistry and equipment. Pilot plant study with actual parts recommended.
6 06/26/2008 To evaluate top products on supplied parts coated with metal fines and dust. A follow up test, usually based on company input.
7 06/26/2008 To evaluate five products at higher concentrations. A follow up test, usually based on company input.
8 06/26/2008 To evaluate top products at two concentrations and an elevated temperature. A follow up test, usually based on company input.
9 06/26/2008 To evaluate past effective products on second set of supplied parts contaminated with cutting and lubricants. A follow up test, usually based on company input.
