ClearSol LLR , a patented formula, is a very low-foaming surfactant for strong caustic and acid solutions. It is readily soluble in 50% caustic soda solutions without the need for prolonged mixing or heating. It is also stable in mineral acids including hydrochloric, phosphoric, and nitric acids.
The addition of an additive package greatly increases the effectiveness of NaOH in the CIP process. In order to have an efficient additive package, water hardness, maximum temperature of cleaning cycle, and percentage of NaOH in the final solution must be considered. Once properly formulated, the CIP cleaning process can utilize less product and shorter cleaning times.
