Product Description

Tergajet: Low Foaming Phosphate Free Powdered Detergent

Tergajet is a nonionic, low foaming phosphate free powdered enzyme cleaner for use in lab-ware washers, for manual and ultrasonic cleaning. Tergajet is a corrosion inhibited formula recommended for glassware, metals, plastic, ceramic, porcelain, rubber and fiberglass. It is free rinsing for reliable results and no interfering residues. Tergajet passes inhibitory residue tests. Dilute 1:200. pH 11.5

Most Alconox products require 2-5 day handling time. The exception to this is the 4 lbs boxes which we are now stocking. 4 lbs boxes can go out same or next day depending on how close the order is to cutoff.

Used to clean: Water testing labware cleaning, phosphate sensitive lab equipment cleaning,
hospital instruments, optical components, pharmaceutical apparatus, cosmetics manufacturing
equipment, tissue culture ware, plate glass, metal castings, forgings and stampings,
industrial parts, animal cages, electronic components, tanks and reactors. USDA food
contact surface cleaning compliant. FDA certified.
Used to remove: Soil, radioisotopes, radioactivity, organics, grit, grime, slime, grease, tars,
resins, fats, oils, blood, tissue, particulates, inorganic residues, chemicals and solvents.
Surfaces cleaned: Recommended for glass, stainless steel, PTFE, ceramic, cement and
alkali resistant plastics and metals. Tergajet is inhibited for Aluminum. Corrosion testing is
advisable.
Cleaning method: Laboratory warewashers, dishwashers, washer-sterilizers, washersanitizers,
cart washers, spray washers, electrocleaning, ultrasonic cleaners, clean-in-place
and manual cleaning if proper skin and eye protection is used.
Directions: Follow machine manufacturer’s directions and use the powder detergent receptacles.
In general, use 1/2 - 1% hot water wash cycle solutions (1 1/4 - 2 1/2 Tbsp. per gal.,
3/4 - 1 1/4 oz. per gal. or 5-10 grams per liter -- most machines need 2 1/2 oz. added at a
typical 2 gal. wash cycle). For manual, soak, circulate or ultrasonic use, make a 1% solution
in warm or hot water. For abrasive scrubbing, make a paste. For difficult soils, raise water
temperature and use more detergent. Wear protective gloves and eyewear when handling.
RINSE THOROUGHLY--preferably with running water. For critical cleaning, do final or
all rinsing in distilled, deionized or purified water. For food contact surfaces, rinse with
potable water. Used on a wide range of glass, ceramic, plastic and metal surfaces. Corrosion
testing is advisable.
