Acidic Neutralizing Agent for the Reprocessing of Surgical instruments

CITRALKAN is an acidic detergent for the neutralization of alkaline deposits in washer disinfectors and/or acidic pre-cleaning of instruments and laboratory glassware.

CITRALKAN removes limescale, rust stains and mineral deposits off the instruments as well as the inside walls of the washer disinfectors. It is commonly used in automatic washers, washer disinfectors or other instrument reprocessing equipment.

CITRALKAN is compatible with stainless steel instruments, ophtalmological instruments, anesthetic equipment, laboratory glassware, hard plastics and all acid resistant medical devices.


  • Removes alkaline residues, mineral scale and rust stains
  • Keeps the washer disinfector’s chamber clean and shiny
  • Very economical: 0.1% to 0.2% dilution in washers
  • Based on organic acids
  • Does not contain any surfactants, prevents corrosion and instruments discoloration


CITRALKAN is compatible with most materials like stainless steel, glass, ceramics and acid resistant materials.
Material compatibility with sensitive materials should always be checked before use.


Citric acid ≥ 40%, Corrosion inhibitors.
