Material Safety Data Sheet



ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 7007 was completely reformulated in August of 2002, to deliver imroved upset recovery and wastewater management in municipal wastewater treatment plants, particularly those receiving a variety of industrial loadings. This high-powered formula rapidly builds a solid biomass during plant hydraulic wash-outs and during seasonal hydraulic peak loadings, thereby minimizing plant upsets. The microorganisms in ALKEN CLEAR-FLO® 7007 have the ability to degrade both easily-digested septage and challenging industrial compounds, such as detergents, paper, oil, grease, and petroleum hydrocarbons, while controlling odors arising from chemical reduction of sulfur compounds by anaerobic sulfur-reducing species.

Suggested Applications: Seasonal and new plant startup, animal lagoon odor control (alternate to CF 7000 when higher levels of toxic chemicals are present), and small packaged systems.



 Bacterial count:  5 billion CFU/gram (2.27 trillion CFU/lb)
 Appearance:  Free flowing, brown powder
 Odor:  Yeast-like
 pH:  Neutral


  • Resistant to high levels of heavy metals, organic solvents, pesticides, phenols, etc.
  • Improved BOD removal
  • Cultures grow in either the presence or absence of oxygen.
  • Controls 1 to 3 ppm hydrogen sulfide in collection systems by competitively excluding sulfide generating bacteria.
  • Easier than trucking in sludge from another plant or can be used to augment trucked sludge.
  • Reduces prevalence of filamentous organisms where augmentation tips the nutrient balance in favor of single-celled bacteria.
  • Effective over a wide temperature (45 F to 104 F) and pH range (6 to 8.0)


For Municipal waste treatment and small packaged plants, see

 Industrial/Municipal dosage charts
for general application rates. 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 and 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® 7007 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® 7007 is packaged in 25-, 50-, and 500-pound containers. Soluble packets are available for an extra charge. Store in a cool, dry place. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, or open wounds and wash hands with warm, soapy water after handling.
