Process2Clean 3 Details


Hydroxyacetic Acid Cleaner

Process2Clean 3 is a high performance, concentrated, liquid hydroxyacetic acid cleaner/descaler detergent, and is extremely capable of removing a wide array of residues. This stabilized cleaning agent is helpful in the removal of free metals with routine use reducing corrosion, pitting, and rusting. Its unique formulation of hydroxyacetic acid, chelating agents, Water for Injection, unique proprietary surfactants, and other critically essential cleaning agents is capable of cleaning a multitude of product and non-product contact surfaces. Process2Clean 3 is phosphate free, is minimal to no foaming at all temperatures, has excellent detergency, and is very free rinsing.

Process2Clean 3 has been specifically designed for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, cosmetic, medical device, food & beverage, and research & development industries. Optimal use applications include: automated washer equipment, spray systems, soak, and manual cleaning. Under recommended use dilution applications and conditions, Process2Clean 3 is compatible with stainless steel, soft metals, glass, and a variety of plastics.

Process2Clean 3 is extremely effective in removing a wide assortment of inorganic soils including but not limited to scale deposits, fine chemicals, polymers, particulate carbons, and coatings. Process2Clean 3 is especially effective on antacid formulations. Typical use dilution for Process2Clean 3 is 0.5% – 5.0%. Precise temperature, concentration, and cleaning time will depend on the degree and type of soil present. All surfaces should be rinsed thoroughly to remove all product and soil residues following cleaning.
