Madison Chemical introduces Ultra-Clean US-159, a cutting-edge alkaline detergent developed specifically for difficult cleaning operations involving the removal of aged, oxidized, burned-on oil and grease, including engine and transmission repair and rebuilds.
Ideal for machinery rebuilding, including engines and transmission, component cleaning during maintenance procedures and more, Ultra-Clean US-159's special formulation cleans more thoroughly in less time, thus increasing productivity, Madison Chemical says. Its unique formula produces low to moderate foam, thus maximizing ultrasonic cavitation.
Safe for use on ferrous alloys when used as directed, Ultra-Clean US-159 may etch or stain aluminum and zinc alloys, therefore pretesting before use is recommended. Dilutions from 2-10 percent by volume in water that is 120-160°F are typically effective, the company says. Additionally, heavier soils and/or ultrasonic applications may benefit from operating at higher temperatures up to 190°F. Follow cleaning step with a thorough ambient-to-warm water rinse, the company adds.
