RECOMMENDED PRODUCT APPLICATIONS
Recommended applications for Zeriol Float Coat are for ballast tanks or similar structures.
Zeriol Float Coat is formulated to be used as provided. The initial application of Zeriol Float Coat should be sufficient to provide a one inch (39.37 mm) layer of the inhibitor floating on the surface of the water. A thicker layer may be necessary if the tanks are severely rusted. Complete coverage of the tank’s bottom is performed by completely draining the tank bottom and pumping Zeriol Float Coat into the tank providing a minimum of a one inch layer. Follwing the coverage of the tank bottom, spray the overhead plates with the Zeriol Float Coat.
The remaining compound shall be added into the tank through manholes or access hatches. The operator should run a minimum of three ballasting cycles with a one hour pause between the end of one cycle and the beginning of the next. A properly treated tank should have a minimum of 1⁄4 inch (6.35 mm) layer of compound remains on the surface of the ballast water when the tank is almost full. Treated tanks should be ballasted at least once every three months to ensure re-application of the compound to areas which have become bare due to rust scale falling off and taking absorbed compound with it.
Zeriol Float Coat is a non-toxic, biodegradable, highly effective rust inhibiting compound which is capable of floating on ballast water and will deposit itself as a protective coating on adjacent tank surfaces during ballasting and de-ballasting operations.
Zeriol Float Coat is available in UN approved 5 gallon pails, 55 gallon drums and bulk quantities.
