Directions for Use:
- Catering Industry: Use GPBIO Scale Remover in bain-maries, kettles, dishwashers – dilution is dependent upon the level of calcium deposits. Use at a dilution rate of 1% to 5% (10ml to 50ml / litre).

- For cleaning floors, walls and equipment: use at 1% to 2% (10ml to 20ml / litre) and apply manually by scrubbing or soaking. Use at ambient temperature and allow a 10 minute contact time, followed by thor-ough rinsing with clean water.

- Dairy Industry: GPBIO Scale Remover is an excellent milkstone remover. For occasional descaling of HTST plant, storage tanks and pipelines use a 1.0% v/v solution at 700C 800C. As an acidic clean in two stage cleaning following alkali, use a 0.5-1.0% v/v solution at 700C 800C. UHT plant - as acidic clean following alkali circulation. Use a 0.75-1.5% v/v solution. Churns - remove milkstone by soaking in warm solution (1.0% v/v) or operate churnwasher for 2-3 days using a 0.5% v/v solution.

- Brewing Industry: To descale fermenting vessels, maturation tanks, etc. circulate a 2.0-5.0% v/v solution for 30-45 mins. Where heavy scaling exists circulation may be repeated using the same acid if the descaling is incomplete. Paraflows - to descale both the liquor and product side a concentration of 5.0% v/v is recom-mended, circulated for 30-45 mins at up to 50oC. Routine cleaning - GPBIO Scale Remover is ideal for cleaning maturation tanks, mains, bright beer tanks, stainless keg fillers and bottle fillers. Used at 1.0-2.0% v/v, cold or warm, it will remove beerstone deposits and also light protein soiling. Suitable for cleaning brewery plant under a carbon dioxide atmosphere, enabling the carbon dioxide to be retained. Stainless steel and aluminium casks - soak in a hot 1.0- 2.0% v/v solution or run cask washer for a short period on a 0.5% v/v solution.

- Food Industry: GPBIO Scale Remover is a great general descaler for tanks, pipes, heat exchanges, etc. – it is particularly useful for the removal of fish slime from fish boxes and dried blood from tiled surfaces in ab-attoirs. In the latter case, use in undiluted form.
