Mode of action of various additives

Cleaning processes can be made more efficient through the use of additives. The targeted application of additives makes it possible to develop customized cleaning solutions for specific requirements in industrial cleaning and to achieve optimum cleaning performance. The result: greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Performance-enhancing additives: These additives increase the cleaning efficiency of neutral solutions, for example by increasing solvent power or accelerating the removal of impurities. They can interact synergistically with the cleaning components to enhance the effectiveness of the solution.

Emulsifiers or dispersants: These additives help maintain stability and homogeneity in the neutral solution by facilitating emulsification of fats, oils or other poorly soluble compounds. They help suspend or disperse the impurities in the solution for more efficient purification.

Wetting agents: These additives reduce the surface tension of the neutral solution to achieve improved wetting of the surfaces to be cleaned. This allows the cleaning components to more effectively penetrate pores, crevices or porous materials for more thorough cleaning.

Corrosion inhibitors: Corrosion inhibitors can be used as additives to prevent or reduce the formation of corrosion on metallic surfaces. They protect the materials to be cleaned from unwanted reactions with the solution and maintain their integrity.

The products shown on our website are only a selection of our entire product range. There is no universal remedy for the rapid removal of impurities. Some can be removed well with alkaline agents, others better in the acidic range. The large variety of conceivable cleaning problems and the large number of additives, inhibitors and ready-to-use cleaning solutions offered by us make it advisable to obtain detailed advice before starting cleaning.
The same applies to inhibitors, defoamers, scale preventers, corrosion inhibitors, pickling inhibitors, etc. Depending on the plant, material, product and the type of boiler/cooling water is used, different individual challenges arise. We are well equipped for them.

Talk to us, we will be happy to help!
On request, we can analyze deposits in our laboratory and develop a cleaning strategy based on our many years of experience, taking into account the conditions on site.
