About Det-O-Jet®

Det-O-Jet is a highly alkaline detergent containing Potassium Hydroxide, Silicate of Soda and Sodium Hypochlorite. It should be used with caution and the precautions on the label should be followed. Det-O-Jet is non-ionic.

Why Det-O-Jet®

Det-O-Jet is a low-foaming liquid detergent. It is a great product in that it is

Det-O-Jet is used to clean

Det-O-Jet is used to remove

Det-O-Jet is used to clean the following surfaces

Det-O-Jet should follow the following cleaning methods


  1. Follow machine manufacturer's directions. Not intended for powder detergent receptacles. If available, use liquid detergent reservoir, connecting tubes, or metering pump.
  2. In general, use ½-1% solution in hot water wash cycle (1¼-2½ tbsp. per gallon, ¾-1¼ ounces per gallon or 5-10 ml per liter – most machines need 2½ ounces added at a typical 2 gallon wash cycle).
  3. For soak, circulate, or ultrasonic use, make a 1% solution in cold, warm or hot water. For difficult soils, raise water temperature and use more detergent.
  4. Wear protective gloves and eyewear when handling.
  5. Rinse thoroughly, preferably with running water.
  6. For critical cleaning, do final, or all rinsing, in distilled, deionized or purified water. For food contact surfaces, rinse with potable water. Use on a range of alkali resistant glass, ceramic, plastic, and metal surfaces.

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.
