Rocket Scientist Explains How Water Works in Manufacturing
Do you think you understand water? Water is all around us; we take it for granted. However, the simple chemical structure of water leads to fascinating chemical and physical properties that are valuable in manufacturing. Let Ed (The Rocket Scientist) take you on a magical mystery tour through the unusual structure and properties of water. He’ll explain the impact of these properties on surface cleaning and other manufacturing applications. You’ll be entertained; and you might just end up with more effective, profitable processes.

Ultrasonic cleaning — cleaning with high frequency sound waves — has become a staple of the laboratory and of the manufacturing facility for generations. Ultrasonic systems have changed. Recent experiments conducted by Ed and Barbara Kanegsberg show that what we teach about ultrasonics ought to change. Read about how to use today’s ultrasonics to best advantage in the December 2015 issue of “Controlled Environments Magazine.”
“Kanegsbergs on Cleaning: Solvent Degreasing” appears in the November 2015 issue of Products Finishing Magazine. Both solvent and aqueous cleaning agents can be effective cleaners. However, many of the soils that need to be removed are organic compounds, like grease, thus the term ‘degreasers’. Not only do organic solvents have greater solvency for organic soils, they also frequently have low surface tension and viscosity, allowing them to penetrate into tight spaces. The more you understand how degreasers work, the easier it is to put together an effective critical cleaning process.
