Application & Dosage Information

Individual processes and process plant installations  vary considerably but as a guide Accepta 2903 should be dosed initially at a rate of 180 - 200 parts per million.

The dosage rate for Accepta 2903 can be reduced from this point until optimum economy with effective foam control has been achieved.
