VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method: For general use apply the 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 salt or fresh water for a residue-free surface. For direct applications foaming will be most effective as it will allow more contact time for the product to work. In a 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 high pressure washer. The product can be applied with a variety of spraying or washing equipment, depending on 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 the product. On smaller oily surfaces, the product can be applied with hand sprayers or portable pumps may be used to spray directly onto the contaminated areas.
2. Concentration/Application Rate: For spills on shorelines and beaches, the product can be used at a dilution of 1:17 parts product to water using salt or fresh water. After application, the product should be allowed to penetrate and dissolve the oily surface for up to 30 minutes. Longer is preferable to maximize contact time. For light cleaning use a ratio up to 1:50 parts product to water. For heavy cleaning use a ratio up to 1:17 parts product to water. 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.
3. Conditions for Use: The product can be used on sand beaches, gravel, cobble, and coarse sand and rocky shores. Water salinity should not negatively impact product use. Water temperatures below 2ºC may impact application. Aged or highly viscous concentrations of hydrocarbons may require presoaking prior to removal. The treated product can be collected and removed by several means including, but not limited to, sorbent pads, oil skimmers, collection booms, or other appropriate containment and collection mechanism. All oily water mixtures should be follow disposal procedures in accordance with current local, state and federal regulations.
