Cleansafe 787C is a non-foaming, mild alkaline liquid cleaning agent from Petroferm that is designed to operate in spray-in-air and agitated immersion cleaning equipment.

Many traditional alkaline cleaners require the addition of pH adjusters and inhibitors to maintain cleaning ability and substrate compatibility.

Often these formulations are not well balanced, resulting in these ingredients getting consumed at different rates.

If not properly designed, cleaning agents containing silicates will precipitate out of solution as the pH drops below 10.5.

This precipitation may lead to scale formation on tank surfaces, fixturing and substrates being cleaned.

If the silicate concentration drops below 100ppm, corrosion and pitting of the substrates and equipment may occur.

Another source of scale formation is the presence of phosphates.

Typically, phosphates are used to complex calcium and magnesium ions in the bath to prevent hard water deposits.

Under certain circumstances, these phosphates form water-insoluble calcium and magnesium salts that precipitate out of solution, leading to scale formation.

Cleansafe 787C is a non-foaming, mild alkaline liquid cleaning agent that was specifically developed to remove a wide range of soils from aircraft components and assemblies.

It contains a carefully tested silicate-to-alkali ratio that provides corrosion inhibition while preventing precipitation and subsequent scale formation.

This well-balanced formula ensures that the individual ingredients are depleted at similar rates, avoiding the need for monitoring individual ingredients.

As it is a phosphate-free formula, the occurrence of phosphate scale is eliminated.

As long as the concentration of the Cleansafe 787C solution is monitored and maintained at regular intervals, no additional pH adjusters or corrosion inhibitor additions are required.

It is recommended that the concentration be monitored once or twice a week depending on usage.
