The Technical Staff of Micro-Bac International, Inc.® can provide dosage recommendations based on the design and volume requirements of the system to be treated. When the treatment protocol calls for treatment in pounds, a scale may be used to measure the product. For easy reference, a 32 ounce drinking cup (one quart) equals one-half pound. A one-gallon container will hold 2 pounds.
Mega-Bac®X Granulated can be applied manually or by volumetric feeders. Mega-Bac® X Granulated performs within a pH range of 5 to 9, with best activity at a pH of 7. The temperature range for treatment with Mega-Bac®X Granulated is 40°F to 110°F (5°C to 45°C). To disperse over a wide area, such as the surface of a lagoon or waste pit, the product can be mixed with tap water and then sprayed or sprinkled. The better the surface area coverage, the faster the product will work. For flowing waste streams, the product should be applied as far up the stream as practical.
