Product Information

Area of application
  • KLOR M is a low foaming, highly alkaline liquid containing chlorine.
  • It is particularly effective for cleaning and sterilizing hard surfaces in Food Processing Plants, Dairies, Brewing Plants and Soft Drink Bottling Plants in one easy operation.
  • Because of its low foaming characteristics, it is ideal for use in a CIP (Circulation Cleaner) or Crate Washing.
  • Virtually odourless ‑ neutralizes offending odours caused by bacteria.
  • Being liquid it is easy to apply.
  • Cleans and sanitizes in one operation.
  • Fast acting.
  • Effective in hard and soft water.
  • Low foaming ‑ ideal for CIP cleaning.
  • Easily removes protein and tannin stains.
  • Protein peptising action – followed by saponification of fatty soils.
Mode of action
The chlorine in KLOR M is an excellent peptising agent for proteins. Thus, the protein link between fatty soils and mineral deposits can be broken down by the peptising action of chlorine. The denaturing of protein by the caustic alkali and saponification of the fatty soils, will provide a clean and microbial free surface.
