Cleaning Stainless Tanks


Recommended Posts

I make liqueurs using natural products , fruits, coffee etc. I'm trying to keep my tanks a clean as possible but am having some difficulty removing a stain residue from the stainless. I've tried soaking the tanks with an Alconox solution over a couple of days . It removed some stain but not much. Any recommendations or techniques or cleaning materials will be much appreciated. I don't want to have to purchase tanks for each of my flavors.

Please comment here or if you wish email me at galinc@comcast.net

I would contact one of these companies that sells cleaning chemicals for the spirits industry. They should be able to guide you.

Loeffler Chemical Corporation 800-769-5020

Loyalty Chemical in San Jose 408.292.9100

Birko Corporation 800.525.0476

For stainless I'd recommend something like Loeffler's Lerapur 283 to remove most any staining. You may need to follow it with an acid passivation cycle. Good luck!
