Procedure
Mixing is generally accomplished in a ribbon or tumbler. The mixing order of components should be such that the nonionic surfactant is absorbed into the alkaline chemicals. Kemphos 2001 should be added to the rest of the ingredients last.

More Information
Kemphos 2001 can be used in machine dishwashing detergents for home and for industrial and institutional (I&I) purposes. The chlorine contributes to the overall cleaning power of the detergent by oxidizing proteinaceous soil. The phosphate contributes toward shiny dishes and reduces spotting on glassware. Phosphates also control water hardness and enhance detergency.
