Directions for use

Dosing method
The most economical method of using UNITOR™ Unipol™ is by recirculation washing, using tank cleaning machines. Make up a solution of 1 -- 5% in preferably fresh water in the tank and recirculate. Whenever possible, the cleaning solution should be heated to 50 - 80°C. Rinse off with hot fresh water. Alternatively, hand spray the tank with a 20 -- 50% solution of UNITOR™ Unipol™ and allow to stay for 30 -- 60 minutes before a final rinse with hot water. When the tank is cleaned to a "water white standard", remove any free water and ventilate until the tank is dry.
