Material Safety Data Sheet




ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 7006 is a concentrated dry blend of specialized bacteria selectively adapted to degrade high BOD/COD/TOC wastewater, containing elevated levels of methyl ethyl ketones (MEK), methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK), acetone and structurally related compounds, transforming it into harmless compounds, water and useful cell mass. Ketones are used in a wide variety of industrial processes, including carriers for nitrocellulose coatings (in automobile lacquers, bookbinding and leather finishing), manufacture of cellulose acetate, cleaning and drying fluids, paints and varnishes, cements and adhesives, etc. Removal rates between 80 and 99% can be expected with this product.

  • Degrades MEK, MIK, MIBK, acetone and structurally related compounds.
  • Cultures adhere to a variety of surfaces to form a biofilm.
  • Higher efficiency of organics removal stabilizes or allows initiation of nitrification.
  • Reduces municipal surcharges.
  • Does not contain raw enzymes, surfactants, or solvents.
  • Effective over a wide temperature range (50 to 104 F), with the warmer temperatures providing more rapid response.
  • Effective over a wide pH range (6.0 to 8.5).
  • Non-toxic, non-corrosive, safe to handle and store.




 Industrial/Municipal dosage charts
for general application rates for lagoon or activated sludge system application. Your Alken-Murray service representative will prescribe both the initial application and the maintenance doses taking into consideration such factors as the total daily influent and effluent, BOD/COD loadings, suspended solids and levels of pesticides or other contaminants. Be aware that a heavy rainfall may bring significant contamination with its runoff, and a one-time dosage equal to the initial application may be needed to restore control. Mechanical aeration may be needed where natural aeration is deficient.


Although product may be applied dry, either loose or in soluble packets, for optimum bacterial performance, we recommend that you hydrate ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 7006 before application. Thoroughly mix each pound of dry product with two gallons of warm (approx.70 F) water without chlorine. Allow the mixture to hydrate for two hours, stirring vigorously every half hour. After final settling, carefully pour off the top liquid layer for use, squeeze all liquid from the bran that has settled into the liquid and either dispose of the remaining bran, or toss into the system. Avoid use of algaecides, herbicides, and antibiotics when using ALKEN CLEAR-FLO®.



ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 7006 is packaged in 1/2 lb. soluble packets in a 25 lb pail and loose product in 50 pound, and 500-pound containers. Store in a cool dry place. Avoid inhalation of dust. Wash hands with warm, soapy water after handling.
