|NEW WEBSITE FOR GREEK DISTRIBUTOR|
Take a look at BioBest - http://www.biobest.gr . See new case studies in Greek and in English, with pictures, detailing use of Alken-Murray microbial products CF 4004, Enz-Odor, Enz-Odor 2 and CF 7008, among others mentioned. We will be posting three of her new studies soon, but you can see them now on the English side of her website - just click the "English" button for the studies in English. We already posted her sausage factory study. Thank you Alina.
New website: AquaBio Environmental Technologies - excellent site with great graphics

BEWARE NIGERIAN COMPANIES
We have no intentions to appoint anyone in Nigeria to represent us. If Nigerian clients wish to purchase Alken-Murray products, please contact our South African distributors for assistance.
|GUILTY OF BEING WORKAHOLICS|
We have been incredibly busy working out 30 new or revised formulations to solve problems and we are proud to now present them to you. Thank you DeAna Hiyashi, our California distributor, for helping with lab testing at Fenton Farm, Inc. for one week in January.
PRICE LIST AVAILABLE NOW|
New price list for microbial products, includes all the new and upgraded products. Write to us for your copy.
|Congratulations Amatikulu Prawns Ltd. for an entire season of prawn raising without use of any antibiotics. CF 1006 and CF 1100-50x again proved their value in aquaculture!|
Clear-Flo 1002 -
completely reformulated SOLUBLE manufacturing concentrate with double the
super count of the previous product, now with 13 strains of Bacillus,
specifically selected to clean the water, enhance health of fish and crustaceans
and leave the glass walls free of slime. For use in aquariums and small
garden ponds. NOT balanced for larger ponds, lakes or rivers.
Clear-Flo 1003 - FOR AQUACULTURE
WITH FATTY FEEDS|
We would like to introduce our new product Alken Clear-Flo 1003, fat and grease degrading formula especially created for ponds loaded with fish fed fatty diets, sometimes leading to an oxygen-inhibiting grease ring at the surface of the pond. This product will control the grease, while also degrading other pollutants. If the fish eat this product, it will improve their digestion.
Clear-Flo 1008 - FALL POND CARE,
POST HERBICIDE CLEANUP|
We are proud to present Alken Clear-Flo 1008, our first product created specifically to rapidly degrade falling leaves, grass clippings, and other plant debris accumulating in the fall and tolerate lower temperatures found in the fall. Eliminates buildup of organic sludge after use of short-term acting herbicide (such as Sonar®), when applied ten to fourteen days after herbicide treatment. This safe and effective product will also prevent buildup of hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans, and fatty acids, a common occurrence when a pond is not treated during cold winter months. Contains 11 gram-positive spore-forming Bacillus, 4 gram-negative vegetative bacteria and 2 fungi. Total count of bacteria 4 billion CFU/g and fungi 50,000 CFU/g.
| Alken Clear-Flo 1400-50x -
FOR TRANSPORT OF FISH, LARVAE AND SHRIMP|
Since most clients for Alken Clear-Flo 1400 are foreign, we decided to discontinue the ready-to-use version in favor of an improved, reformulated Alken Clear-Flo 1400-50x two part concentrate, which allows longer shelf-life, less expensive transportation of product, and improved performance, all for a more economical price. Just mix part A and Part B together with water (free from chlorine) to make up a ready-to-use product with a 3 month shelf-life after being mixed.
Clear-Flo 5201 -BATHROOM CLEANER
Clear-Flo 5201 is our new bathroom cleaner, especially effective for removing stains of all kinds, including difficult stains from mold and mildew in crevices and corners. Dilute 2 oz per gallon for a bathroom floor cleaner. Dilute 1 + 7 in a sprayer to wipe down counters, toilet seats and shower curtains. This product has our trademark "wild hyacinth fragrance" that leaves a very light and classy scent behind, after cleaning. Ideal for classy hotels and private homes. CF 5201 is a good adjunct to CF 5200, which is used to wash down kitchen and restaurant floors, for a "no-slip" finish.
| Alken Clear-Flo 7114 and
7114-2x THATCH TREATMENT AND SOIL AMENDMENT|
Completely new product: Alken Clear-Flo 7114, dethatching and soil amendment liquid, to be used alone. Note: This product is NOT compatible to be blended with Alken Clear-Flo 7014! If you wish to use CF 7014 as a soil amendment, mix with Alken Bio-Nutrient 9.
Enz-Odor 6 - DENITRIFYING SULFIDE OXIDIZERS|
Enz-Odor 6 dry version has finally proven itself stable after more than six months of stability testing, so we are proud to offer this five strain product, featuring Thiobacillus denitrificans, assisted by three other gram-negative sulfide oxidizing strains, two of which also denitrify, and one gram-positive, sulfide-oxidizing heterotrophic, spore-forming Bacillus. This consortium can treat applications requiring strict autotrophs (lacking an organic carbon source) or can be used when sulfide accompanies high BOD. Since one scientific paper for Thiobacillus denitrificans suggested adding dolomitic limestone to help control pH, we have included it as 8 to 10% of this formula.
Enz-Odor 10 - HYDROGEN SULFIDE
CONTROL FOR ANAEROBIC DIGESTERS|
Enz-Odor 10 was specifically designed to oxidize hydrogen sulfide in anaerobic digesters, while breaking down fats and grease into organic and fatty acids, the preferred diet of Methanogens. When you increase the supply of fatty and organic acids in a digester and simultaneously remove hydrogen sulfide, your methane production should increase. The new Enz-Odor 10 is compatible with CF 7020 or 7008, depending on the composition of waste going to your digester.
| Alken Treat-A-Loo 2 and
Treat-A-Loo 2-5x PORTABLE TOILET TREATMENT|
Both formulas have new strains added and increased total count too, allowing for higher dilution when preparing "ready-to-use" product, or else apply a lower dosage. Reduced shipping costs should enhance foreign sales. Treat-A-Loo 2-5x does not contain surfactant, at the request of one distributor.
|POSSIBLE FORMULAS WITH STRAINS TOLERANT
OF LOW pH AND HIGH SALT |
We can also prepare customized formulations that tolerate 7.5 to 10% salt and blends for low pH (4.25 to 5) applications. We are not formalizing these yet, until we learn more about the applications that require these traits. Please contact us if you need either of these solutions. Anything else you do not see, contact us. We are very much guided by clients' requests when we screen and select new microbes and when we formulate our finished products.
MANUFACTURING CONCENTRATES - FORMULATED, NON-FORMULATED
AND PARTIALLY FORMULATED
Alken Clear-Flo 1002
- (NF) reformulated SOLUBLE dry concentrate. Minimum order 5 x 1 lb. plastic
If you need a different blend of
Bacillus in a concentrated form, whether formulated, partially formulated
or non-formulated, talk to us about your requirements. We can most likely
We have discontinued Bio-Nutrient 1 and 2, which were technologically inferior to the rest of the line.
|MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEETS FOR MICROBIAL
Please note general change in MSDS for microbes. We have included the 15% moisture found in dry formulas as "water" and we are now counting microbes by freeze dried or spray dried weight, rather than active culture weight, including moisture. The products are still as strong as they have always been, and in many cases they are stronger, but their dried weight component is smaller.
Jeneil Biosurfactants actually KILL gram-positive strains, while dramatically enhancing the performance and germination rate of gram-negative petroleum degrading strains. Use only with CF 7036, 7136 and 7037. Any other combination with an Alken-Murray formula would defeat the balance of the product and reduce product effectiveness.
