Zip-Chem® Calla® 296 Aqueous Parts Washing Cabinets Cleaner
Zip Chem knows how to wipe away messes, especially with their line of Calla Aviation Products. Take Calla 296, a concentrated cleaner that is particularly effective for use in aqueous parts washing cabinets. When used as instructed, it removes dirt and grease from parts with cycle times as low as three minutes. Since cleaners usually consist of chemicals, both quality and safety standards must be met in order to be deemed fit for use. Thus, Calla 296 meets all requirements of Source Control Drawing 9825019 Rev. C and meets Mil-C-29602 except section 3.7 (pH).
The operating temperature is 140°F to 180°F. The washer pump can be allowed to go as low as 130°F with no adverse effect on the foaming characteristics. Never operate the washer pump under 130°F. If pump is turned on at lower temperature, heavy foaming may occur. For optimum cleaning efficiency, the recommended dilution of the product is 20%. Lower concentrations result in greater foam. Usual cycle time for cleaning is three to 15 minutes. Do not overload the washer cabinet; keep all part surfaces exposed to direct spray whenever possible. Please note that as foaming increases, the addition of Calla 296 will reduce the foam and increase the cleaning efficiency of the cabinet.
Calla 296 comes in one gallon, five gallon, and 55 gallon (drum) containers.
