How To Choose Alkaline Or Acid Pharmaceutical Cleaners

Source: Alconox, Inc.

A great deal is known about how pH affects aqueous critical cleaning. The first step is for you to identify the residue that needs to be removed and then determine the optimal pH range that will remove it. By understanding the structure, functional groups, molecular polarity, solubility and molecular weight of the residue being removed, it is possible to determine if an alkaline or acidic cleaner would work best for a given cleaning method.
