VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method: For general use, apply product by spray, mop, or with standard steam and pressure wash cleaning equipment. It can also be applied using a foam generator, or any convenient sprayer. Product can be used as is or by using heat and pressure or mechanical scrubbing. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water for a residue-free surface. In direct applications, foaming will be most effective as it will allow more contact time for the product to work. In a typical foam cleaning application operation the surface to be cleaned will be thoroughly covered with foam and allowed to stand for several minutes. The foam is rinsed away with clean water using a hot pressure of low pressure washer. Product can be applied with a variety of spraying or washing equipment, depending upon the type and scale of the shoreline or beach to be cleaned. For large areas such as beaches, the product can be sprayed from water trucks or other vehicles equipped with pumps, hoses, and nozzles to aerially deliver cleaner. On smaller oily surfaces, the product can be applied with hand sprayers or portable pumps may be used to spray directly onto oily surfaces. Dose rates may vary depending on type and amount of petroleum spilled, and other site conditions such as water, temperatures, and porosity of shoreline. Cold weather applications will require more contact time before initiating recovery. The treated product can be removed by several means including but not limited to: sorbent pads, oil skimmers, collection booms, use of vacuum trucks, berm collecting, drumming, frac tanks, or other appropriate containment and collection mechanism.
2. Concentration/Application Rate: For spills on shorelines and beaches, the product can be used undiluted up to 14% dilution with fresh water. After application, the product should be allowed to penetrate and dissolve the oily surface for up to 30 minutes, longer is preferable – if possible, to maximize contact time. For light cleaning, use up to 1:200 parts product to water. For heavy cleaning, use up to 1:14 parts product to water.
3. Conditions for Use: Product can be used in fresh or salt water, sand beaches, gravel, cobble, coarse sand and rocky shores, public beaches, and other sensitive or high impact sites.
