Sinner's Circle

The principles of cleaning

In the late 1950es, the German chemist Herbert Sinner defined the four key parameters of all cleaning processes: temperature, time, chemistry, and mechanics. The parameters are often depicted together in the so-called Sinner’s circle to show that they depend closely on one another. If you reduce one, one or more of the other three need to be increased.

Sinner's circle

The four parameters in Sinner's circle are combined in all KSN cleaning systems. Read about each of the cleaning parameters in this section.  

THE NECESSARY FORCE

Mechanics

Any washing process includes mechanical action directed towards the contaminants. Our cleaning solutions includes a wide range of mechanical options, from low and high-pressure nozzles to turbulence and oscillation cleaning and ultrasound, that target contaminants in even the smallest cracks and holes.

WORTH WAITING FOR

Time

A lengthy cleaning process will allow you to reduce the chemicals used, lower the temperature, and use less mechanical force. KSN cleaning solutions are designed and programmable to allow widely different washing times to suit your production process.

THE HEAT IS ON

Temperature

Oils, coolants, and other contaminants are easier to remove if you increase temperature. KSN cleaning solutions can deliver any temperature required. Even with our energy-efficient heating systems, higher temperature requires more energy and increases water consumption due to evaporation.

YOUR OWN SPECIAL AGENT

Cleaning chemicals

The right cleaning chemical gives you fast and efficient washing results at lower temperatures and with less mechanical force. KSN cleaning solutions can be designed to work with any chemical, including high or low pH or pH-neutral, eco-friendly agents.
