Should you clean your product during manufacturing? If so, when and how? Cleaning is essential for proper performance, optimal quality, and increased sales. Inadequate cleaning of product elements can lead to catastrophic failure of the entire system and serious hazards to individuals and the general public.
Gain a competitive edge with proven cleaning and contamination-control strategies
A decade after the bestselling original, the Handbook for Critical Cleaning, Second Edition helps manufacturers meet today's challenges, providing practical information and perspective about cleaning chemistries, equipment, processes, and applications. With 90% new or revised chapters plus supplementary online material, the handbook has grown into two comprehensive volumes: Cleaning Agents and Systems and Applications, Processes, and Controls.
Helping manufacturers become more efficient and productive, these books:
Show how to increase profitability and meet both existing and expected product demand
Clarify the sea of print and Internet information about cleaning chemistries and techniques
Address challenges of performance, miniaturization, and cost, as well as regulatory and supply chain pressures
Offer clearly written guidance from the viewpoints of more than 70 leading industry contributors in technical, management, academic, and regulatory disciplines
Overview chapters by the editors, industry icons Barbara and Ed Kanegsberg, meld the different viewpoints and compile and critique the options. The result is a complete, cohesive, balanced perspective that helps manufacturers better select, implement, and maintain a quality, value-added cleaning process.
The first volume, Handbook for Critical Cleaning: Cleaning Agents and Systems, gives manufacturers a practical understanding of the variety and functions of cleaning chemistries and cleaning, rinsing, and drying equipment. Topics include aqueous, solvent, and "non-chemical" approaches. Readers can compare process costs, performance, and regulatory issues, and then choose their best option.

... an excellent resource for the manufacturer and for those researchers and consultants like myself who support the manufacturers. ... This Handbook's strongest suit is the presentation of the Kanegsbergs' philosophy of process development and improvement. ... they have produced a very useful resource in these two handbooks.

Mazel tov on your new edition!!! I really didn't know what to expect from a `cleaning' book. So surprised-it is an incredible treasure trove of information!! It is really interesting, beautifully written and honestly I can't stop reading it. Thankfully it is two volumes so Scott and I don't have to fight over it. Really, it is the most fascinating technical book I've ever seen so it should fly off the shelves-or the Internet.

... a tour de force, a work written by experts who have worked at the interface between science and industry and who write from that basis, not from an ivory tower. The price of these two formidable volumes is not insignificant. But set against the cost of defective production, just for one hour's downtime or components having to be re-worked or completely rejected, it is an investment that will pay for itself many times over. On that basis, one is more than happy to strongly recommend it.

There are a number of excellent chapters specific to electronics applications; these include materials, equipment, processes and failure modes. Cleaning printed board assemblies for selected applications is on the increase where no clean has quite rightly dominated the market place for many years since the demise of CFC's. There are many reasons why cleaning is a hot topic again and a great time for the release of an encyclopaedia on cleaning.

Any firm serious about managing its cleaning operations should have this book available to their staff responsible for that operation. It's a strong contribution to the technical literature supporting industrial cleaning because of the diversity of its coverage and strengths of many chapters, .... Every chapter is replete with references-something not provided with a Google (or other search engine) Internet search.
