Trial Number 11

Trial Purpose:

To evaluate client requested products on the fifth soil.

Date Run:


Experiment Procedure:

The three cleaners were diluted to 5% using DI water in 600 ml beakers and heated to 120 F on a hot plate.
Nine preweighed titanium coupons were coated with client supplied Wolverine Ultra Flux (1332-77-0, 10043-35-3, 7789-29-9, 11128-29-3, 151-21-3), using a hand held swab and then heated with a Master Appliance Heat Gun at 500 F for 10 minutes. Coupons were allowed to cool and then weighed a second time to determine the amount of soil added. Three coupons were cleaned in each solution for 5 minutes using stir-bar agitation. Coupons were rinsed in tap water for 15 seconds at 120 F, followed by air blow off at room temperature. Once dry, coupons were weighed a final time and efficiencies for each cleaner were calculated.

Trial Results:

All three products removed over 99% of the second oil. The table below lists the amount of soil added, the amount remaining and the efficiency for each coupon cleaned.
