best parts washer solvent/detergent

Post by veteranmech007 » Fri Jun 19, 2015 12:42 am

So what is everyone using in their heated spray wash cabinet washers got a new alkota 110 heated washer trying to find the best bang for buck, that won't break the bank but will clean just about anything and aluminum safe, diesel and mineral spirits give me migranes if I'm around them to much.

Used powder from Kingomatic/ Transtar in my hot tank, and it did a excellent job on all parts. Dave may know the powder that I am talking about. Only thing I did find is that you have too keep on top of the cleaning of the tank, to get the results you are looking for.

Transbrite is a good one , we sell one called a hot shot that is enough for one cleaning for most parts washers . we also sell it in 45 pound pails . The one Barry mentioned is from prochem and it also works good .

Sorry guys for the late reply, but found this works very well, but you also have too be on top of the cleaning of your hot tank.
