Straight-A is an essentially non-foaming and environmentally sound product to remove tough soils yet protect soft metal finishes and minimize residue. It is gentler and safer than caustic-based cleaners, yet very effective at breaking down soils and removing stains. Non-corrosive and compatible with all vessels and equipment surfaces.
What is Straight-A?
Straight-A was developed as an environmentally sound product to remove tough soils yet protect soft metal finishes. Straight-A incorporates active oxygen for de-staining and protein disruption in addition to alkaline salts and chelating agentsto break down and disperse soils. In this way Straight-A helps to quickly and easily rinse soils away while minimizing residue. Furthermore, the oxygen content provides an additional benefit by lowering the oxygen demand of the wastewater.
Straight-A’s components will readily biodegrade or revert to naturally occurring minerals over a short period oftime and the productitselfis non-hazardous and non-corrosive.
Because Straight-A is essentially non-foaming when used at the recommended use concentration, it may be used in clean-in-place (CIP) systems as well as in the soak tank. Straight-A may be used on essentially all surfaces, being safe for brass, copper, aluminum, and stainless, as well as polycarbonate and vinyl.
Soaking and Manual Washing:
Dissolve 0.5 oz per gallon of water. If heavy soils are present, 1–2 oz will boost detergency.
Use 0.5 oz for daily treatment of minimally soiled vessels and equipment, but for heavily soiled vessels such as fermenters, 3 oz is recommended. Heat the solution to 120–180°F and circulate for 30 minutes. Follow with a clean water rinse.
