VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method: Application of the product may be made directly from 33 and 35 gallon drums (marketing size) by fitting the drum with a "T" connection and pumping fresh or salt water across the junction, which will pull the dispersant from the drum into the water stream and onto the oil spill.
