Years ago, many avoided citric acid due to potential organic growth and molding issues. Today, citric acid has improved leaps and bounds with new formulations for biocides to prevent any organic growth in solution. See our complete write up on the advancements of citric acid (specifically Citrisurf). These new advancements in citric acid have allowed smaller manufacturers which had little to no experience with chemical handling and processing to bring their passivation needs in house. Today, many companies are taking a second look at citric acid due to its ease of chemical handling & disposal and safe for employee exposure all of which are more difficult with nitric acid.

Many modern manufacturing and technology practices require managing excess heat. For manufacturers of semiconductor wafers, controlling process temperatures is critical. For data centers, getting rid of excess heat through immersion cooling can dramatically lower operating costs. 3M™ thermal management fluids are dielectric and non-flammable, which means they are suitable for direct contact with live electronics.
