Surge Breaker Cleaning

edited September 2013 in Configuration

A few PMs with @BenStiller concerning the cleaning of the SD surge breaker.

He asked:

...noticed a significant amount of grime in the surge breaker that is particularly difficult to access. No fluid should reach this part during the cleaning part and I am afraid that if I do not clean it well, it might contaminate my product at some point (surge or simply the gunk sliding down at a latter time). Is there a particularly efficient strategy to clean this?

My response to surge breaker cleaning was:

You can put it in a pot of boiling soapy water. Q-tips should reach the hard to reach areas.

But I just had to work my way through it using a new-off-the-shelf surge breaker.

After a half hour boil in soapy water it was attacked with chopsticks, Q-tips (cotton swabs) with needle nose pliers, 95% alcohol and tissue paper. All removed some grime. But I needed real physical action to get it clean.

Enter the wire clothes hanger. A quick cut and bend and it was very easy to grab either cloth or tissue, with our without the alcohol solvent, and give it the good deep cleaning.
