Myth #1

Myths of Cleaning Myth 1 of 8: Water is Obviously 鈥淐heaper鈥 than Solvents Regular city water alone won’t clean anything. It needs surfactants and detergents that lower surface tension and remove soils. These are consumed during cleaning and need replenishing. Higher temperatures are needed to activate cleaning chemistry, which is important for ensuring good wetting and evaporation after ... Read More
 

Myth #2

Myths of Cleaning Myth 2 of 8: Aqueous Systems Can鈥檛 Be Used in Critical Cleaning First, let’s be clear that 鈥渃ritical cleaning鈥 has a very specific meaning. It refers to the removal of sub-micron particles and non-volatile residues. It’s required when any surface contamination would yield adverse effects. While many processes and products might qualify, the term is used particul... Read More
 

Myth #3

Myths of Cleaning Myth 3 of 8: Aqueous cleaning is always 鈥渟afer鈥 than solvent There’s a misapprehension that 鈥淎queous Cleaning鈥 refers to cleaning with water. While water is involved, and under the right circumstances can be a solvent, in aqueous cleaning systems the water contains additives. These have several functions, such as lowering surface tension, creating chelation, (the dr... Read More
 

Myth #4

Myths of Cleaning Myth 4 of 8: Solvents are all BAD! 鈥淪olvent鈥 is an extremely broad term. Any substance that will dissolve another is, technically, a solvent, and that includes water.

If these names appear familiar it鈥檚 be... Read More
 

Myth #5

Myth #6

Myths of Cleaning Myth 6 of 8: Solvent cleaning is always the most efficient process Solvents make very effective cleaners, in the right application. The key points to consider are, what is being cleaned, what is it being cleaned of, and what is it being cleaned for? Solvents are highly effective for dissolving oils and their low surface tension enables good penetration and evaporation. Solvent cl... Read More
 

Myth #7

Myths of Cleaning Myth 7 of 8: Market is Dominated by Aqueous Cleaning Compared to solvent cleaning, aqueous is still the newcomer, even though it has been in use for two decades.

The key, when choosing a cleaning ... Read More
 

Myth #8

Myths of Cleaning Myth 8 of 8: Cleaning is All About Picking a Chemistry Chemistry is important for sure. The solvent or aqueous cleaner must be compatible with the soil or contamination you want to remove, but it’s more complicated than that. Consider also the material to be cleaned: some cleaners will damage some surfaces. Then there’s the degree of cleaning or cleanliness desired. O... Read More
