Straight A Cleanser



Straight-A is an essentially non-foaming and environmentally sound product to remove tough soils yet protect soft metal finishes and minimize residue. It is gentler and safer than caustic-based cleaners, yet very effective at breaking down soils and removing stains. Non-corrosive and compatible with all vessels and equipment surfaces.

What is Straight-A?
Straight-A was developed as an environmentally sound product to remove tough soils yet protect soft metal finishes. Straight-A incorporates active oxygen for de-staining and protein disruption in addition to alkaline salts and chelating agentsto break down and disperse soils. In this way Straight-A helps to quickly and easily rinse soils away while minimizing residue. Furthermore, the oxygen content provides an additional benefit by lowering the oxygen demand of the wastewater.

Straight-A’s components will readily biodegrade or revert to naturally occurring minerals over a short period oftime and the productitselfis non-hazardous and non-corrosive.

Because Straight-A is essentially non-foaming when used at the recommended use concentration, it may be used in clean-in-place (CIP) systems as well as in the soak tank. Straight-A may be used on essentially all surfaces, being safe for brass, copper, aluminum, and stainless, as well as polycarbonate and vinyl.

Soaking and Manual Washing:
Dissolve 0.5 oz per gallon of water. If heavy soils are present, 1–2 oz will boost detergency. 

CIP Cleaning:
Use 0.5 oz for daily treatment of minimally soiled vessels and equipment, but for heavily soiled vessels such as fermenters, 3 oz is recommended. Heat the solution to 120–180°F and circulate for 30 minutes. Follow with a clean water rinse.
