Aqueous Cleaning Optimization

David Gotoff, product manager at Chemetall, explains how each area of an aqueous process must be optimized, including system design and mechanical action, chemistry selection, key performance indicators, soil management, maintenance, rust protection, rust preventive selection, water chemistry, and drying.

Effective parts cleaning is achievable with the proper chemistry and mechanics. Proper equipment design, coupled with appropriate product selection and process control, assures sustainable and cost-effective performance. And a preventive maintenance program makes the performance consistent over time.
