Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

USE BASF COOLING WATER BIOCIDE TO REDUCE ODOR AND BIOFILM FORMING BACTERIA IN CANNING RETORT AND PASTEURIZER COOLING WATER.

1. All tanks, tunnels, conveyors, heat exchangers, lines, spray bars, and nozzles should be thoroughly cleaned, when possible, and completely rinsed, using clean potable water prior to treatment.

2. For each 10,000 gallons of cooling water, add to the tower sump 20 – 100 grams (0.7 – 3.5 oz.) of BASF Cooling Water Biocide. Repeat application daily.

3. Maintain the residual chlorine dioxide concentration between 0.1-0.5 ppm. Sample the cooling water at the circulating pump discharge and, if the concentration of microorganisms exceeds 104 cfu/ml and/or the chlorine dioxide residual falls below 0.1 ppm, increase the addition rate to twice daily or higher.

Note: Use an HACH or similar kit to measure residual ClO2.
