Understanding Alkaline Cleaners Their Function and Effectiveness

Understanding Alkaline Cleaners: Their Function and Effectiveness

Alkaline cleaners, which are formulated with bases such as potassium hydroxide and sodium hydroxide, effectively break down fats, oils, grease, and protein-based deposits. They work through mechanisms such as saponification, emulsification, and solvent action, using components such as phosphates, silicates, and caustic compounds. These cleaners are ideal for heavy-duty industrial cleaning due to their high pH, cost-effectiveness, and environmental friendliness. They also include dispersing agents to prevent redeposition and are compatible with various cleaning equipment and processes.
