Alkaline Degreasers / Cleaners


Alkaline degreasing is made by spray, immersion or ultrasonic methods at elevated temperatures. Different type of metals like aluminium, copper, brass, iron, steel...etc. can be treat in these baths. Proper type of chemicals must be selected to not to darken surface of metals such as aluminium and brass.

Generally alkaline degreasers work at tamperatures in the range of
50-95C. Operating temperature is very important, at lower temperatures time duration of cleaning reduces.


Operating time in immersion alkaline degreasing baths is between 5 - 10 minutes with a chemical concentration of % 3 - 10. Depending on type of the metal and type of grease/oil, treating time can vary. Alkline degreasing is mostly employed in chromate coating, iron phosphate coating and zinc phosphate coating lines as a prior application. Bath concentration must be controlled periodically and total alkalinity must be holded in optimum range by additon of chemicals.


The advantage of spray alkaline degreasing is the effect of permanent pressure. Spraying pressure between 1,4 - 2,0 bar rises effect of cleaning. Temperature of the solution can be at a lower level 50-65C relatively. Treating time in spray systems is lower, too, around 3 minutes.


Mid alkaline degreasing chemicals commonly used is ultrasonic degreasing baths. Cleaning effect is high by the aid of ultrasonic vibrations. Chemical concentration is in the range of % 2 - 5 with a time duration of 3 - 7 minutes. Of course these values all depending on type of grease/oil on the metal surface.


Imortant parameters in alkaline degreasing baths are chemical concentration, treating time, temperature and total alkalinity. Additionally, hardness of the water effects degreasing. In case of insufficient cleaning even if all paramaters are optimal, degreasing additives can be used to improve degreasing effect.
