Low-Foaming Neutral Cleaner
• Low foaming for use in mechanical and spray washers
• Neutral pH for non-corrosive cleaning, safe handling and easy waste disposal
• No chelation or alkalinity waste treatment problems
• Concentrated for economical use
• Free rinsing to eliminate interfering residues
• Biodegradable and phosphate free
Used to clean
Aluminum and soft metal surfaces, medical instruments in aluminum trays, alkaline sensitive lab and glassware, sensitive aerospace materials, pharmaceutical process equipment, medical devices, electronic components. FDA certified.
Used to remove
Oils, dirt, grime, adhesives and uncured epoxy, particulates, residues, fluxes, chemical solvents, machining oils.
Corrosion inhibited formulation recommended for glass, ferrous metals, non-ferrous metals, aluminum, copper, zinc, and other soft metals, ceramic, plastic, circuit boards and electronic components.
Soak tanks, manual cleaning, ultrasonic tanks, mechanical washers, washer/sanitizers, spray washers, CIP systems.
For manual, soak and ultrasonic use, make a 3-5% solution (4-6 oz per gal. or 30-50 ml per liter) in warm or hot water. Protective gloves and eyewear are recommended. For spray machines, add detergent at the hot water wash cycle to make a 2% solution (2 1/2 oz. per gal. or 20 ml per liter). For difficult soils raise water temperature and use more detergent. RINSE THOROUGHLY—preferably with running water. For critical cleaning do final or all rinsing in distilled, deionized or purified water. Corrosion testing may be advisable. Luminox is available from leading laboratory, hospital, clinical and industrial suppliers.
Luminox is an aqueous, low-ionic content, phosphate-free blend of organic solvents, surfactants, and rinse aids.
Cleaning Validation Methods
Test a parameter of rinse water before and after rinsing the cleaned surface. No significant change in the parameter indicates no detectable residue. Parameters measured include: pH, spectrographic methods, surface tension, and surface analysis.
