Problems due protein accumulation on a RP-18 column.

For quantifying amino acids, I use a OctaDeacetylSulphate 2 column.
I´ve got protein accumulation due an inadequate precolumn.
For purging the column, i´ve got two protocols:

     60% isopropanol, 40% 4M urea
     60% isopropanol, 40% 4M acetic acid

Does anybody have any recommendations about other protocols or
deviations like thiourea?

Thank you.
