Ruggedness of Visible Residue Limits for Cleaning-Part III: Visible Residue Limits for Different Materials of Construction
October 2, 2013

The authors evaluated a variety of materials of construction (MOCs) and found that visible residue limits (VRLs) were higher on some MOCs than on stainless steel. The optimal viewing conditions were dependent on the MOC and the viewing background. The risk of a cleaning failure due to visual failure for different MOCs can be mitigated or eliminated using complementary cleaning validation studies.
