Houghton International’s Quench-Kleen 5343 low-residue alkaline spray cleaner is formulated to be a safe and cost-effective alternative to solvent emulsion cleaners in heat-treating applications without presenting a barrier to subsequent coating processes or welding.

The cleaner can remove shop soils such as quenching oils, soluble coolant cutting oils and metal forming compounds by splitting them out of a metalworking solution in single- or multi-stage washing equipment, or in spray washers with high-pressure nozzles operating at pressures of 40 to 250 psi.

The non-foaming cleaner is strong enough to clean most ferrous alloys, but it said to be less volatile than other cleaners because it is a non-monoethanolamine, non-nitrited fluid. It can clean surfaces as warm as 170°F without harm to work staff or the environment, the company says.

Other benefits include cost savings due to longer bath life and reduced need for sump additives; decreased chemical costs from splitting tramp oil, which enables skimming and extending sump life; reduced energy costs because the cleaner can be used at ambient temperatures; and lowered waste disposal and fluid replacement costs because it is compatible with virtually all industry-accepted recycling methods.
