DIRECTIONS FOR USE/ APPLICATION RATES AND DOSAGE RATES
Oil Spills At Sea: The quantity that will be sprayed on to the sea depends on spilled oil quantity, type of spilled oil and the weather conditions. One liter of ER-OSD ECO will disperse between 15-20 m2 of oil depending on the thickness and age of oil being treated.
If there are floating oil at the sea surface, before using ER-OSD ECO use oil booms. You can also pump or skim off as much as possible. After removing most of the oil, use ER-OSD ECO undiluted.
The best results are taken when ER-OSD ECO is sprayed over the oil spill.
Small Spills at Sea:
ER-OSD ECO can be applied over the spilled oil at sea by hand spray, work boats with mounted spray booms or fire hoses with injectors. After applying ER-OSD ECO with one of the above devices, wait for 10-15 minutes, waiting will help for the oil to absorb ER-OSD ECO. Then mix it with a very effective mixture method. If the sea is calm, try to mix the water by spraying high pressured water with a fire hose or other mixing apparatus.
Big Spills at Sea:
Spray it over the oil spill at sea by spray boom or hoses with injectors. For large areas, you can use spraying equipment connected to the sides of a motor launch or a helicopter. After the application, wait for oil to absorb ER-OSD ECO. Then mix it with a very effective mixture method, this will help ER-OSD ECO to create emulsification between, spilled oil and sea water.
Oil Spills on Deck and Beach: Poor or spray ER-OSD ECO over the spilled oil. Mix it with an appropriate mixer like mop, brush, sponge or any other stirring device. Add water and continue mixing until ER-OSD ECO is absorbed by oil. Clean the surface with water by using a high pressure water jet. Repetition of the cleaning process may be necessary if there is still spilled oil on the surface.
