Trial Number 8

Trial Purpose:

To evaluate client requested products on the second supplied soil.

Date Run:


Experiment Procedure:

The three cleaners were selected by the client and were diluted to 5% using DI water in 600 ml beakers. All three products were heated to 120 F on a hot plate.
Nine preweighed titanium coupons were coated with client supplied tapping fluid, Master Chemical Corp Trim C270 (102-71-6, 63231-48-1, 141-43-5), using a hand held swab 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.
