Cleaning Perspective– parts2clean, Part II

By Ed Kanegsberg and Barbara Kanegsberg, BFK Solutions

For new perspectives on effective cleaning, simply go to a trade show. What trade shows? Explore cleaning options by continuing our virtual tour of the 2019 parts2clean trade fair in Stuttgart. In the first installment of “Cleaning Perspective “(1), we discussed cyclic nucleation, laser and CO2 processes. We continue with cleaning agents and cleaning systems that use solvents, including co-solvents and hydrocarbons. We also explain how the concept of CPS can improve process consistency and minimize employee and community exposure.

We take requests
We have to brag, a little bit. PQCWebinars have taken on a life of their own. Participants include manufacturers, suppliers, advisors, and regulatory personnel. People involved in critical cleaning tune in from around the world, from over 25 countries and counting.

One PQCW goal is to do face-to-face workshops. We will schedule in-person workshops when it’s prudent.

Many of you have contacted us to ask followup questions and to make suggestions for programs and articles. Don’t be shy! Tell us what topics you like (and what you don’t like). /
