Chlorine Foam Cleaning Detergent

Chlorite 98 is an alkaline chlorine foam cleaning detergent for effective degreasing & disinfection in food processing, textile manufacturing, and industrial cleaning applications. It’s specially formulated to support the grease-cutting properties of alkaline cleaners with the disinfectant properties of chlorine-based cleaners.

Chlorite 98 is included in the Dept of Agriculture, Food & the Marine’s Biocidal Register (PCS ref. 94252)


Product Benefits

Biocel’s Chlorite 98 chlorine foam cleaning detergent offers ease of use and effective surface contact. Its powerful formulation and foam strength ensures that the detergent remains in contact (even on vertical surfaces) long enough to penetrate dried-on stains and ground-in scales. Benefitting from an ability to produce impressive non-streaking and odour-free results, Chlorite 98 also provides a biocidal action. With a strong foam-clinging capacity.


  • Suitable for general purpose usage for removing food residues and organic deposits.
  • High Foaming Action: The foam produced by Chlorite 98 increases the contact time with surfaces, ensuring that the cleaning agents have more time to act.
  • Strong Clinging Foam: The foam's ability to stick to vertical and uneven surfaces makes it ideal for cleaning walls, ceilings, equipment, and machinery.
  • Non-corrosive: One of its key advantages is its non-corrosive nature when used at recommended concentrations on compatible equipment.
  • Enhanced Visibility and Coverage: Its non-streaking action also makes it easier to see where the detergent has been applied, ensuring complete coverage.
  • Effective Grease & Fat Deposit Emulsification: Chlorite 98 alkaline chlorine foam cleaning detergent, excels in emulsifying grease and fat deposits which are crucial for maintaining hygiene standards and ensuring the smooth operation of equipment.
  • Powerful Alkaline Action: The alkaline components in Chlorite 98 work by breaking down the molecular structure of fats and greases.
  • Microbial Control: The chlorine component has disinfecting properties, which means that it not only removes grease and fats but also kills microorganisms that might be present within these deposits. This dual action helps in maintaining a hygienic environment.
  • Reduced Cleaning Time: The effective emulsification properties of Chlorite 98 reduce the time and effort required for cleaning. Biocel's Chlorite 98 provides optimal contact time with the best results achieved within 12-15 minutes. This leads to increased productivity and lower labor costs.
  • Maintenance and Equipment Longevity: Regular and thorough removal of grease and fat deposits helps in preventing equipment malfunctions and extends the lifespan of machinery. This results in lower maintenance and replacement costs.
