R-3 is a low foaming, high performance truckmount carpet detergent that can be used at very low concentrations in truckmount extractor systems which operate in the temperature range of 170 degrees F to 200 degrees F. Dissolves so easily many are switching from liquids for this more cost effective product. R-3 combines detergents, emulsifiers, corrosion inhibitors, buffers and water softeners to provide fast penetration and suspension of the soil for easy trouble free extraction. Brighteners and a lemon scent leave the carpet with a bright, clean and fresh appearance and a pleasant fragrance. The fast drying hard friable residue is invisible and retards re-soiling until it is vacuumed up in subsequent cleaning. The water softening system incorporated in R-3 is designed to suspend water hardness levels up to 400 ppm (23 grains) suitable for most locations, assuring truckmount operators the safe, clean, efficient operation of their equipment.
For optimum cleaning, chemical solution should be mixed 1 lb. of detergent per 5 gallons of water and metered at 5 gallons per hour.
