Benefits of “BE” Chemistry

Choose the detergent that's right for your application!

The selection chart below will assist you in finding the ideal detergent. The factors to consider are:

1) contaminants being removed
2) type of parts being cleaned (type of metal)
3) importance of rinsing
4) requirement for rust inhibition (to protect the machine if it is constructed of mild steel) and parts that are mild steel.

If equipment is constructed of mild steel, a compatible rust inhibitor should be added to washing solution to maximize corrosion protection for the machine. Never mix AMINE containing and NITRITE containing solutions. De-ionized water should only be used in spray washers constructed from stainless steel.

Using the selection chart below, choose the best detergent for the soils being removed (from light oils and chips to heavy grease), for the type of parts being cleaned (type of metal), and for the construction materials of the machine (mild steel or stainless.)
