Top Nine Variables in Aqueous Critical Cleaning Webinar

This presentation will explain how to choose an aqueous detergent and optimize a cleaning process based on the nature of the contaminants to be removed, the substrate material to be cleaned, and the cleaning process employed.

This webinar covers the variables that are important in making a detergent selection and optimizing an aqueous cleaning process. The choice of a detergent should be made based upon the soil being removed, the type of cleaning process employed and the material of construction of the surface to be cleaned. The presentation will help attendees make the most effective detergent choices. The different types of soils and the detergent chemistry best suited to solubilize each of them so that they may be removed with water will be reviewed.

The nine variables of a cleaning process, represented by the mnemonic B-A-T-H-O-C-A-R-D will be reviewed in detail. These variables are the following: Before clean; Agitation; Time; Heat; Orientation; Chemistry (Concentration); After-clean; Rinsing; Drying.
