Usage and Dilution Instructions

For most conditions, use 1/2 to 1 ounce per gallon of water. The water flow rate that is normally recommended is 2 gallons per hour per cubic foot of mass in the machine. For example a 20 cubic foot machine would use 40 gallons of water per hour. This product was formulated to protect steel media overnight or over the weekend. If the machine isn't going to be used for longer periods, it is recommended that an additional inhibitor such as our MP-222 or 50-R be used to provide longer term protection.
