Default What temperature for OxiClean CIP recirculation?

For cleaning the insides of my counterflow chiller and HERMS coil I put about 5 gallons of water with a scoop of OxiClean free in my boil kettle, set the temp to 180F and recirculate for 20-30 mins using my 2 pumps.

That had me thinking: Is 180F overkill? What's the best temp to recirculate this for the best cleaning effect?

Oxyclean says use in HOT water. So I'm thinking 180 might be good. You could try one at 180 and another at 150 and see if it makes much of a difference.

from the oxyclean website:
What temperature water do I mix it with?
OxiClean® Versatile Stain Remover works in any temperature water, but best in warm to hot water. Do NOT use boiling water. Please read and follow clothing, carpet, or surface manufacturer’s care instructions for appropriate water temperature.

Doh! Never thought of actually looking on the Oxiclean site.

I'm thinking 140-150F is probably good if warm to hot is recommended. Thanks!
