Chemical DescriptionTergazyme consists primarily of a homogeneous blend of sodium linear alkylaryl sulfonate, phosphates, carbonates, and protease enzyme. Tergazyme is anionic in nature. The protease enzyme in Tergazyme is bacillus licheniformis subtilisin carlsberg which may be deactivated by 300 ppm hypochlorite at 85 degrees F in seconds; 3.5 ppm hypochlorite at 100 degrees F for 2 min; exposure to pH below 4 for 30 min at 140 degrees F; or by heating to 175 degrees F for 10 min.
Cleaning Validation Methods
Test a parameter of rinse water before and after rinsing the cleaned surface, or test the clean surface. No significant change in the parameter indicates no detectable detergent residue. Parameters measured include: pH, conductivity, UV, TOC, HPLC, sodium concentration, phosphorus concentration, anionic detergent concentration using inexpensive detergent water testing kits, surface tension, and surface analysis.
