Product Dose

Dosage and control

Make a 5% solution in fresh water by adding the powder slowly to the water while stirring. The solution should preferably ne portioned to maintain desired dosage, either by means of a simple bypass feeder.

The product can be injected into the discharge line of the fresh water generator or directly into the fresh water pumps’ suction manifold. If a high percentage of shore water is used the solution must be “slug” dosed into the tanks prior to taking water. 

Inject a 5% solution at a rate of 0.12 litres per m3 of water to obtain a 6 mg/ltr concentration.


For 20 m3 per day:      Dose 0.1 ltr/hour = 2.4 ltr/day of the solution.

For 100 m3 per day:    Dose 0.5 ltr/hour = 12 ltr/day of the solution. 

For larger systems, stronger solutions up to 20% can be made. The dosage rate may then be reduced proportionally, which will extend the time period between each filling of the dosing tank. However, production of stronger solutions may require improved stirring equipment.
