DESTAINEX-LF (Low Foam)
Multi-purpose/ multi-surface cleaner
Destainex-LF is a multi-purpose oxidizing cleaner, developed by AiRD Chemistry in consultation with the Australian wine industry. Destainex-LF also contains peroxy-carbonate, surfactants and chelating agents.
- Destainex-LF is used to remove color, protein and other organic soil as well as mold and mildew.
- Destainex-LF can be used with an automated CIP system or with manual cleaning.
- It is a granular multi-purpose oxidizing cleaning agent for stainless steel, galvanized metal, concrete, glass, flexible hoses and HDPE/LDPE/PP*.
*HDPE/LDPE- High/Low density polyethylene, PP= Polypropylene
Calculate potable water needed at 10% of the volume of system to be cleaned. The temperature of the water should be between 104-140°F (40-60°C).
Depending on wine soil present use- 0.5-1.5% w/v (0.5-1.5 kg/hL).
Prepare appropriate volume of potable hot water, accurately measure the correct weight of the Destainex-LF. Slowly add the powder into the water mixing until a consistent solution is obtained. Initially the prepared solution will appear milky, but will soon clarify. Once the solution has clarified it is ready for use.
Store in a dry, odor free environment between 50-68°F (10-20°C) away from sunlight.
Last year we started using Destainex-LF at the winery as our full time, general use cleaner. As a MicroCrush winery with more than 150 separate clients (many of them with just one barrel), we needed to find a way to save time and water. Destainex-LF was the answer and delivers on all its claims and more. Gone are lengthy 3 cycle cleanings and the harsh chemicals/long rinses associated with them. A happy cellar crew goes a long way as well.
