|Product Technical Bulletin|
ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 7003 is a concentrated
dry blend of specially developed , non-pathogenic, Biosafety Level 1 strains
of bacterial cultures (5 strains of endospore-forming Bacillus and 4 strains
of gram-negative, vegetative species) for use in food manufacturing wastewater
and sewage applications, where the naturally occurring microbial population
is inadequate for effective and timely bioremediation. The microorganisms
in ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 7003 have the ability to degrade foods, especially
those related to vegetables, their juices and oils, but they also target
phenolics and detergents. ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 7003 also controls odors
from fatty acids, while effectively reducing biochemical oxygen demand (BOD),
chemical oxygen demand (COD), and suspended solids (SS) in wastewater.
|Bacterial count:||5 billion CFU/gram (2.7 trillion CFU/Lb)|
|Appearance:||Free flowing, brown powder|
FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
Although ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 7003 may be measured out and applied directly, as dry, loose powder, we advise rehydration of each pound of ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 7003 in two gallons of warm (21 to 22 C / 70 F) for optimum bacterial performance, mixing bran-based powder thoroughly with water every thirty minutes over two hours. Alternatively,use an overhead stirrer to continuously mix bran powder and water for two hours, then allow to settle for 15 minutes before decanting liquid into influent section of wastewater system. Thoroughly stir settled bran into fresh wastewater and dispense into system.
Avoid use of algaecides, herbicides, and antibiotics
when using ALKEN CLEAR-FLO®. If chlorinated city water must be used
to hydrate bacterial cultures, dechlorinate using either thiosulfate or
Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C). Discuss the protocol with your authorized Alken-Murray
distributor or Kenneth J. Edwards, Jr., Head Chemist at Alken-Murray's subsidiary,
Fenton Farm, Inc. Research Laboratory in Huntly, Virginia.
