4.b. Minimum storage temperature: 50ºF
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: > 50ºF to < 104ºF
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes:< 50ºF, > 104ºF
V. SHELF LIFE
18 months if stored between 50ºF and 104ºF, and away from acids.
VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURES
1. Application Method:
AQUACLEAN may be introduced with a pressure spray to cover the affected area, after the appropriate dilution or concentration is prepared. After application, agitate spill area with water using a solid stream flow. For manual cleaning with AQUACLEAN, follow instructions in the product data sheet provided by the manufacturer.
2. Concentration/Application Rate:
For small spills, dilute 3 to 1 with water and apply as above. For large spills, prepare a 33% solution of AQUACLEAN and apply through a foam eductor at 6% setting with approximately 90 gallons per minute flow at the nozzle. For spills on shorelines and beaches, dilute AQUACLEAN 50% with fresh water and apply using a pressure spray to cover the entire contaminated area. Then rinse with fresh water.
3. Conditions for Use:
Water temperature should be above 41ºF.
