Machine Cleaner for Dyeing, Printing and Textile Industry
PERISOL SCM is a biodegradable machine cleaner for the removal of impurities caused by dyestuffs, pigments and oligomers in the textile industry such as dye houses, printing plants or color kitchens. The powerful cleaning agent is suitable for cleaning textile machines, machine parts as well as batching and feed tanks. Even persistent deposits, such as oligomer or pigment incrustations, can be easily removed by cleaning or boiling the machines with PERISOL SCM. Due to its strong foaming properties the cleaning liquor can even reach areas which are usually difficult to access.
Application of PERISOL SCM for Cleaning Textile Machines
For the cleaning of fully flooded textile machinery we recommend the use of 2 to 5 g/l PERISOL SCM. For the cleaning process the dyeing machines together with the material carrier are fully flooded and closed. The liquor is heated to 60 to 70 °C and circulated for 30 minutes. Finally, the machines are thoroughly rinsed warm and cold.
For boiling strongly soiled machines with incrustations and/or deposits caused by dyes, pigments or oligomers we recommend to use 2 to 5 g/l PERISOL SCM and to add 2 to 8 ml/l caustic soda (NaOH, 50 %) and up to 3 g/l sodium hydrosulphite (Na2S2O4, sodium dithionite). The treatment should take 30 minutes at a temperature of 100 to 130 °C. Under these conditions PERISOL SCM does not foam but is cleaning without foam formation due to its high cleansing, dispersing and emulsifying capacity.
