Piston Kleen is a safe, effective, and economical water-based cleaner engineered to remove baked-on carbon, oils, greases and other soils from tracked vehicles, trucks and automotive engine parts. Developed to remove burnt-on carbon deposit in the piston rings on U.S. Army vehicles, Piston Kleen makes easy work of major automotive carbon problems such as carbon deposits on pistons and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). Piston Kleen is recommended for soak tanks, cabinet washers, ultra sonics, and through-put machines.
Simply soak the piston/parts in Piston Kleen for 2 to 24 hours to remove even the nastiest build-up. Remove from solution when part is clean. Agitation and heat decrease the soak time, but is not necessary. Orison recommends agitation with a working temperature of 90° F. to 180° F. Note: Used pistons may have heat/stress induced wear under the carbon which may not be identified until after soaking.
When cleaning EGR's, remove as much carbon as possible prior to soaking to decrease soak time and lengthen product life.
The pH of Piston Kleen will drop to about 10 when it is fully loaded with carbon. Basically, when it is too black and nasty to mess with, it's spent.
*Piston Kleen may affect some coatings. It is designed to clean bare aluminum / metal parts.
