Selecting the Right Aqueous Dunnage Washing Detergents
There is actually quite a bit of science behind selecting the right aqueous detergent for dunnage washing for a project. The dunnage washing experts at Clark Logic have the knowledge and the experience to select the ideal detergent for your container cleaning needs.
Some of the factors we consider when selecting the best dunnage washing detergent include:
- the contaminants being removed
- the type of containers being cleaned
- the type of material (plastic, metal, etc.)
- the importance of rinsing
- rust inhibition requirements
- label removal (if any)
What Can Aqueous Dunnage Washing Detergents Clean?
Even though aqueous dunnage washing detergents are less harsh than other solvents they can clean:
- Heavy Carbon
- Heavy Oils
- Lighter Oils
- Chips, debris, dirt, dust & particulates
Rust Inhibiting Aqueous Dunnage Washing Detergents
If your dunnage is constructed of steel, a compatible rust inhibitor should be added to the detergent to maximize corrosion protection.
An amine-based liquid rust inhibitor, used in conjunction with detergent, is safe for use on metals including aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, iron, steel, and composites in addition to plastics and rubbers.
Nitrite-based liquid rust inhibitors can also be used in conjunction with detergents to prevent corrosion. These are safe for use on metals including aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, iron, steel and composites as well as, plastics and rubbers.
Do not mix with amines or amine-containing substances. And never mix amine containing and nitrite containing solutions.
Using the selection chart below, choose the best detergent for the soils being removed (from light oils and chips to heavy grease), for the type of parts being cleaned (type of metal), and for the construction materials of the machine (mild steel or stainless.)
