SAFE ACID

A NON FOAMING ORGANIC ACID BASED CLEANER
PHOSPHATE FREE

SAFE ACID NF is a concentrated phosphate-free organic acid cleaner. This chemical will efficiently remove mineral deposits. It is extremely good for cleaning in place.

SAFE ACID NF is a low pH organic salt that is used to replace traditional strong corrosive acids. Our acid replacement technology is safe, non hazardous and biodegradable.

DOSAGE:

SAFE ACID NF is used at a concentration of 0.5-5.0% (5 mL/L to 50 mL/L for cleaning in place.
A concentration of 5.0% (50 mL/L ; 6.4 oz/gal) is recommended for manual cleaning.

Temperatures in excess of 50C should be avoided when using this chemical.
