This cleaner can be an alternative to mineral acid products

MCI Super Remover is a new cleaner for removing rust, scale and hardened concrete residue from equipment surfaces that can replace muriatic, phosphoric and nitric acid cleaners. The phosphate-free MCI Super Remover uses low-pH organic salt to replace traditional mineral and organic acids. The product is biodegradable and is approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a non-food inert ingredient in biocide applications, the company says. MCI Super Remover is non-fuming and contains no VOCs (volatile organic compounds), so it is safer both for the environment and for humans than the caustic cleaners it replaces, the company notes. It is designed to cause no damage to uncoated glass surfaces, fiberglass and rubber, as well surfaces coated with aliphatic urethane paint. It is suitable for cleaning drum mixers, construction equipment, batching plant equipment, water treatment facilities and others. — Cortec Corp., St. Paul, Minn.
