Before exploring all that Walter's Bio-Circle product line has to offer, here are some quick and easy tips that will help you choose the right cleaner to get the job done.
Cleaning products are divided into water-based cleaners and solvents. What differentiates water-based cleaners (and the way they remove contaminants) is their pH; they can be acidic, neutral or alkaline. Once you know the required pH for your application, you can easily choose the best cleaner to remove the given contaminant quickly and easily.
Acidic cleaners are used to remove inorganic contaminants such as rust, limescale and mineral deposits from metallic surfaces.
Neutral cleaners are used whenever the use of acidic or alkaline cleaners is a concern, or if the items to be cleaned are delicate.
Alkaline cleaners are used to remove organic contaminants such as grease, oil and protein residues.
the cleaning matrix
Whe it comes to cleaning and cleaning efficiency, each product's cleaning performance can be improved by four key elements:
- Contact time
- Mechanical action
If any of these four elements are increased, the performance of your given product will be improved.
Using a high pressure washer (mechanical) and hot tap water (temperature) mixed with a cleaner in its strongest concentration (power) for one minute (time) will result in a given cleaner performance. By increasing the time or the temperature at which you use the product, you will increase the performance of the product.
