Detergent is used to remove remains such as oil, auxiliary material, microbiological pollution used in production processes. The fact that both fat residue and detergent residue used in the cleaning process remain on the product creates pollution. Washing and rinsing operations are therefore important.
Detergent Residue analyses are carried out according to the following standards.
ISO 2271 Surface active agents — Detergents — Determination of anionic-active matter by manual or mechanical direct two-phase titration procedure
ASTM F 2459-18 Standard Test Method for Extracting Residue from Metallic Medical Components and Quantifying via Gravimetric Analysis
