Total Chelant

Total Chelant is a term used to account for all chelating compounds.  A range of chelants (including the common EDTA and NTA) are used in cleaning products for their sequestering properties. Chelants combine with cations that form deposits, such as calcium, magnesium, iron and copper. The metal chelate formed is water-soluble. It is important to maintain sufficient concentrations of chelants in process cleaning equipment such as dishwashers and laundry equipment to ensure appropriate cleaning, without staining or tarnishing from metals.
