Using Procedure:

The most economical method of using Unipol is by recirculation washing, using tank cleaning machines. Make up a solution of 1%u20135% in preferably fresh water in the tank and recirculate. Whenever possible, the cleaning solution should be heated to 50%u201380°C. Rinse off with hot fresh water. Alternatively, hand spray the tank with a 20%u201350% solution of Unipol and allow to stay for 30%u201360 minutes before a final rinse with hot water. When the tank is cleaned to a %u201Cwater white standard%u201D, remove any free water and ventilate until the tank is dry.
