Pre-Stabilized Alcohol Solution for Metal Cleaning Applications

SAFECHEM has introduced the modified alcohol DUALENE 1601 S that is designed for ensuring process stability in high precision metal cleaning. "DUALENE 1601 S is the first pre-stabilized, pure and virgin-grade modified alcohol ever developed in the market for a wide range of metal cleaning applications," said a company spokesperson.

The spokesperson continued, "Process stability is key to ensuring successful cleaning with modified alcohols. However, outsourcing trends in the supply chain, or changing formulations of manufacturing oils, give rise to uncertainties around the origins and types of contaminations entering the cleaning machine, as well as sources of acids. This can pose a threat to the stability in the cleaning process.

"With a built-in alkalinity buffer, DUALENE 1601 S has the distinct ability to bolster process stability right at the start of the cleaning process compared to other modified alcohols. It can improve the process safety for all applications and is especially recommended for demanding operations with high stability requirements."

These operations include the following:

  • Chlorinated oils are cleaned off. This helps prevent the formation of hydrochloric acids, which could lead to corrosion of critical machine parts.
  • High amounts of particles are present, primarily aluminum, iron, copper and zinc. The particles of such reactive metals can increase the formation of acids in the machine.
  • Unknown contaminations are cleaned off (e.g., contract cleaning).

Due to its polar and non-polar properties, DUALENE 1601 S can clean off lubricant greases, polar oil additives and corrosion inhibitors just as effectively as moist emulsion residues, according to the company.
