AQUEOUS CLEANING PRODUCTS

  • How can I clean residual hormone residue from our process lines and tanks?

  • All Alconox Inc. detergents are Class I Medical Devices and listed as FDA-registered detergents. The list of the detergents is found on the FDA website with FDA Registration number 2410887. Alconox Inc. is also proud to be ISO9001:2015 and ISO13485:2016 Certified.

  • If you are looking to manually clean coveralls, bunny suits, bouffants, and the like, the Alconox detergent you have in house will be great.  In a more ideal circumstance, we would go with what is essentially Alconox powder enhanced with protein enzymes.  This truly gives thorough removal/cleaning of biological, proteinaceous, viral, and microbial residue.  This is Tergazyme® Enzyme-Active Powdered Detergent – see our Tergazyme detergent video.  Both detergents, the Alconox and Tergazyme powder, do not contain traditional “laundry” detergent attributes: florescent whitening agents, softeners and fragrances. They both contain excellent dispersants, emulsifiers and wetting agents that can enhance cleaning significantly.  So they won’t “smell” clean, they just will be clean.  In fact, critically clean.

  • Per Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting viruses and other pathogens, any form of disinfection necessarily follows cleaning. The process of cleaning will remove any residues that might shield any virus or pathogen from the disinfection step that comes next. Disinfection, following thorough cleaning and rinsing, can be done with bleach solutions, 70% alcohol solutions, or other products with EPA-approved emerging viral pathogens claims. As outlined by CDC, bleach solutions should reside on surface for at least one minute and can be made as follows:

    • 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water, or
    • 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water

    An excellent cleaning and wiping solution can be made with 0.5% (0.75- 1.5 oz/gal or 5 mL/L) Alconox® Powdered Precision Cleaner or Liquinox® Critical Cleaning Liquid Detergent, depending on preference for powder or liquid concentrate, respectively. Following which, per the CDC guidelines, wipe with the above bleach solution or other disinfectant solution. Allow wiped-down surfaces to sit for several minutes before rinsing to complete the disinfection.
