Full-scale applications of VeliGON may allow greater reduction of primary coagulant than indicated in short, bench-scale preliminary tests due to longer time in the system.
Protect products from low temperatures. Maintain at 38 ºF (3 ºC) or higher. Store in heated buildings or heat-traced tanks to prevent freezing. Although products are freeze-thaw stable, stratification may occur upon freezing; they will become homogeneous again upon agitation.
The product is noncorrosive at use concentrations, but the undiluted product is moderately corrosive to iron and copper, including their alloys. Avoid exposing to carbon steel or copper. Do not store in stainless steel.
Storage tanks, chemical feed systems, and piping should be of high-density (HDPE) or cross-linked (XLPE) polyethylene, fiberglass (FRP) with polyester or vinylester resins, epoxy, or vinylester-lined steel. Pump liquid ends and piping should be constructed of polyethylene, propylene, polyvinyl chloride, chlorinated polyvinyl chloride, Kynar, 316 stainless steel, Viton, or Hypalon. Refer to manufacturers recommendations.
