Fill tank with 50 of the total volume of liquid fertilizer to be used. Start agitation before adding the first product and continue agitation throughout the mixing process. Add products in order of their formulations see following section . For best results with dry products, form a preslurry with a small volume of water before adding into
USABlueBook Settling Agent is a premium flocculent designed to pull suspended solids out of wastewater for faster clarifi ion. It may be used alone or in conjunction with alum or other flocculating agents and it contains unique buffering agents to assure proper flocculation over a wide pH range.
This can be caused from improper mixing order, inadequate agitation or lack of stable emulsifiers in some emulsifiable concentrates ECs . Often, mixtures will settle out in layers or solids will settle out. One example is if ECs are added to the tank before wettable powders, a putty similar to pancake mix will float on the top and not mix.
Pesticides should be added to the tank using the W.A.L.E.S or D.A.L.E.S method to help avoid mixing issues. Fill spray tank full with carrier. Be sure agitation system is in working order. Add water conditioner and any compatibility agents if needed. W or D Dry formulations should be added to the
the spray tank. 2. Add the required amount ofherbicide concen trate, maintaining agitation while mixing. The amount ofherbicide concentrate required can be determined by: Herbicide required gallons per tank acres per tank X appli ion rate pounds per acre herbicide concentration pounds per gallon 3. Finally, add the balance ofthe
No personal protection equipment isrequired when handling the cleaning agent and disposal of the used solution requiresonly dilution with clean water to meet generally acceptable worldwide disposal standards. Several factors impact support removal effectiveness and time: Agitation/Circulation varies by tank type and manufacturer Temperature
Defoaming agents are added to the spray tank to control or reduce the formation of foam in the tank. Foam is created when air bubbles form as a result of spray tank agitation, along with the type of surfactant used to formulate the pesticide.
Emulsifiable Concentrates EC or E An emulsifiable concentrate formulation usually contains a liquid active ingredient, one or more petroleumbased solvents which give EC formulations their strong odor , and an agentknown as an emulsifierthat allows the formulation to be mixed with water to form an emulsion.
Froth flotation is a process for separating minerals from gangue by taking advantage of differences in their hydrophobicity.Hydrophobicity differences between valuable minerals and waste gangue are increased through the use of surfactants and wetting agents.
