Clean milking system Exacta, a one-step CIP detergent

AgroChem Inc. has introduced Exacta, a highly concentrated, non-foaming acid detergent formulated to clean an entire milking system in a single wash cycle.

Exacta contains a high-performance combination of sanitizing acids, surfactants and emulsifiers that dissolve fats, mineral deposits and proteins.

The company says the zero-phosphate formula is gentle on equipment and the environment – and reduces bacterial growth between milkings.

The non-foaming formulation is purported to avoid “trap-out.”
