Five Star PBW (Powdered Brewery Wash) 450g

Quick Overview

- effective at all temperatures

P.B.W. is a buffered alkaline detergent that has been proven to be more than an effective substitue for caustic soda cleaners.  Because of its unique formulation of buffers and mild alkalis, it is safe on skin as well as plastics and soft metals such as stainless steel and aluminium.  P.B.W. uses active oxygen to penetrate carbon or protein soils and is not affected by hard water.  The oxygen also helps in reducing B.O.D. (Biochemical Oxygen Demand) and C.O.D. (Chemical Oxygen Demand) in wastewater, which is an added environmental benefit.

P.B.W. has been formulated as a Cleaning In Place cleaner and is very effective in removing protein soils found on brew kettles, fermenters, conditioning tanks, filters and all packaging areas.  The concentrations to remove these soils are typically in the 1% range.  However, due to soil and water conditions this concentration will vary.  To help in hard water areas, P.B.W. has been formulated with enough chelators to tolerate hard water over 17 grains.

P.B.W. is an excellent choice as a soak cleaner because it does not require excessive heat as do most caustic based cleaners.  This product has cleaned brass and copper filters and industrial aluminium surfaces successfully.
