Product Quality Cleaning Workshop

Early Registration Promotion

We have many spectroscopic tools that we may apply to your soil situation - FTIR, Raman, fluorescence, LASER-induced fluorescence, visible colorimetry, visible reflectometry, visible spectroscopy, contact angle.

**So what? Well, data from these techniques would cost you hundreds of dollars at a contract lab.**

You can receive data from the relevant techniques for your soil if you will:

  1. Register in full by December 31st
  2. Send us a sample of your soil or a soiled part. Email if you have questions.

The workshop has a strict capacity because of the hands-on activities. If you cannot register in full at this time, it would be wise to save your seat with a $200 deposit*. (This will be applied to the total cost of $1100.)


What will this Workshop do for you?

You can make better products and profits with better cleaning.

This workshop provides hands-on training in the lab and comprehensive instruction in the classroom. So you will know how to save money and how to avoid costly mistakes in cleaning.

Surely you want:

  • Consistently clean parts.
  • A positive reputation for your company. This often depends upon cleaning.
  • Technicians and managers who know how cleaning affects the bottom line.
  • To know how to troubleshoot cleaning problems.

The Product Quality Cleaning Workshop will help you with all of the above!


The next Product Quality Cleaning Workshop will be on May 13-14th 2020.

Building on the success of the 2018 workshop, we will feature 

  • more hands-on lab experiences
  • wider selection of cleaning equipment in the lab

We thought the last program was outstanding, and so did our participants. Here are some of their responses from our workshop evaluations.
