Controlled Cleaning by Measuring Surfactant Concentration Controlled Cleaning by Measuring Surfactant Concentration

The process reliability of pretreatment methods is the basis for high-quality products in the production of metal parts with special surface requirements. The cleaning process is the essential step between the finished shape forming and subsequent surface treatment and surface coating, respectively. Deficiently cleaned parts cause defects in the surface quality of products, leading to high costs due to consequential damages. The proper maintenance of defined concentrations of components, surfactants, and builder ensures optimal results in aqueous cleaning processes.
