What are some good alternatives to acid cleaners ( We currently use phosphoric acid) to clean aluminum surfaces. After we clean that is the final step (no painting). I need a process that is efficient and leaves a nice shiny aluminum finish.

Try Mineral Spirits then Kerosene. We use that as "coolant" when cutting aluminum. Try it after using Mineral Spirits adn it should give you a mirror finish. (32um)
