How to choose a water-based cleaning agent for hardware cleaning?


Traditional industrial cleaning uses solvents, such as trichloroethene and other toxic and harmful solvents, have been phased out, so environmentally friendly solvent cleaning agents are a more direct alternative to their use, for example, eco-friendly hydrocarbon cleaning agents have been widely promoted. However, with the development of the economy, the cost of industrial production is reduced in the pursuit of each enterprise. New water-based cleaning agents have been gradually recognized by the majority of enterprises and attention. Water-based cleaning agents for their more environmental protection, lower cost, and efficiency have been recognized.

If you have been using solvent-based cleaning agents, when you want to use water-based cleaning agents for alternative work, you need to consider what issues, and how to choose a suitable for their business requirements of water-based cleaning agents? We stand in your perspective to analyze one by one.

First of all, the material of industrial products is diversified, there are stainless steel, copper, and aluminum, as also iron, alloy, plating, and so on. Is your product material suitable for use in the washing process? Does the cleaning process affect the material? For example, such as Iron Wash is easy to rust, copper, aluminum and so will not be washed after the oxidation of discoloration metamorphism? And so on many water-based cleaning agents on the actual application of the problem is that some enterprises have been suspected and worried. The development and application of water-based cleaning agents have been a relatively long time. The application of water-based cleaning agents and solvent-based cleaning agents abroad can be said to be the same starting line, all aspects of the technology have been relatively mature, only in the domestic market to promote the slow start. The problem of how some reactive metals are protected from reaction effects during washing no longer exists. As cast iron and other materials easily rusted in water, water-based cleaning agents should be selected as rust-proof type, you can clean dirty material rust protection at the same time, a variety of large-scale casting processing enterprises are used by this kind of water-based cleaning agents. Such as copper in the PH change will appear discoloration and other reactions, should choose a targeted copper water-based cleaning agent, can not affect the copper itself at the same time cleaning, white copper cleaning is a good example.

Secondly, when considering the applicability of the material, we should go back to the application conditions of the enterprise itself, the use of a water-based cleaning agent should have what kind of application conditions, and need equipment? Water-based cleaning agents generally need to be used to warm up, to enhance the cleaning effect many enterprises have also applied ultrasonic cleaning equipment, ultrasonic equipment has been suitable for the use of water-based cleaning agents. For example, you already have ultrasonic cleaning equipment, and the structure of the equipment has three internal grooves, so it is suitable for the use of the water-based cleaning agent process? The answer is yes, but process improvement is needed. After improvement, the three inner grooves are arranged into three stations. The first grooves are cleaned by adding a cleaning agent, and the second and third grooves are used for rinsing. The finished work will need to be dried. This is already the case with equipment, if there is no equipment to consider the purchase of cleaning equipment, of course, this is to consider the cost of equipment.

Then, knowing the choice of cleaning agents, and equipment understanding, the next is more important is the actual feasibility of the specific enterprise water-based cleaning agent application. Is it suitable for washing? The answer is practice. There is no 100% water-based detergent. Because each application unit's product dirty type is different, therefore each concrete application must carry on the water-based cleaner formula adjustment. So choose a water-based detergent manufacturer with the technical research and development capabilities to provide product suitability tests, but also for you will use the water washing process to make recommendations. But please keep in mind that everything is empty verbally, and practice is the test of truth.

If the product customers request the surface in strong light and dark light can not see any dirt, so also need to use industrial pure water rinsing. Therefore, the long-term need to clean, from the comprehensive cost of water-based cleaner way is better, short-term demand is not cost-effective. If the single volume of the product is small and short-term, then we recommend the use of a solvent-based cleaning agent. Solvent cleaning agent for the use of the original solution, every single cost is higher, but the process is less, so in the short-term nature of the single small amount of the solvent-based approach is more cost-effective.

If the choice of water-based solvent cleaning, then the process can be designed as ultrasonic heating rough cleaning-ultrasonic heating fine cleaning-city water rinsing-city water rinsing-pure water rinsing-drying. Of course, this will require further practical feasibility tests. If the product surface requirements are not yet up to standard, to enhance the effect can be added in the middle of the water spray rinsing and wind removal process. And the front of the two ultrasonic cleaning processes, if the experimental use of cleaning can achieve the effect of words can only use ultrasonic cleaning. The latter sequence of pure water is required to have industrial pure water machine to produce, but there are customers to use drinking water that can meet the requirements of filtration, so it is best to see the reality of the experiment.
