Detergent Tests

Detergent Tests

Chemical substances used in cleaning processes and obtained from petrochemical products, which are in the form of liquid, powder or cream (gel) are called detergents. Detergent generally means dirt remover. All kinds of cleaners except soap are in detergent class. Detergents are complex mixtures and each has a different cleaning power.

The benzene ring in the formulas of detergents is generally not degradable by microorganisms. As such, detergents cause more environmental pollution than soap. Detergents commercially available today include bleaching agents such as chlorine, soap powder and borax.

The fact that detergents are hazardous to the environment is not due to the surfactants in the structure, but because of the contents, especially phosphate. Phosphates are a major problem in waste water. The amount of phosphate in uncontaminated lake waters is around 0,06 ppm and in polluted lake waters it is about 6 ppm. This amount is not acceptable.

Nowadays, studies are being carried out to ensure that no phosphate is added to the detergents or to be placed at the lowest level. No other substance has the properties of the phosphate and is as economical as it is.

Depending on their application, detergents are divided into laundry detergents, dishwashing detergents and other cleaning agents.

The detergent reduces the surface tension of the water and allows more penetration of the object to be cleaned. Solid dirt particles and oils can therefore easily escape from their location. Moreover, detergents are not affected by the hardness of water, even in acidic environments are sufficiently effective.

During the industrial test studies, the current regulations and the relevant standards published by many domestic and foreign organizations are taken into consideration. In line with the needs of the enterprises, our company conducts detergent tests within the framework of industrial tests.

In the meantime, our company complies with the TS EN ISO / IEC 17025 Standard for the Adequacy of Testing and Calibration Laboratories. From ÖSAS Accreditation Agency has been accredited and serves within this framework.
