BioSentry® Acid-A-Foam™ Cleaner and Descaler is used as an alternative to regular hatchery, equipment or barn cleaner to remove detergent residues, mineral scale and other hard-to-remove elements. A clean surface is required for complete disinfection. Alternating between a good alkaline detergent and good acid-based detergent maximizes surface cleanliness and, therefore, prepares the surface for the second step of disinfection. BioSentry® Acid-a-Foam removes dirt, grime, protein and oils as well as minerals and adherent films.

Recommended Areas Of Use

POULTRY HATCHERIES: Walls, floors, ceilings of rooms, setters and hatchers. Manual cleaning of trays, racks, plastic flats, boxes.

FARM USES: As a general cleaner and deodorizer in poultry houses, swine and livestock barns and as a wetting agent to wash down poultry houses, swine and livestock barns.

FOOD PROCESSING PLANTS: Use on floors, walls and shelves, utensils and walk-in-coolers. It cleans and brightens stainless steel, glass, plastic, concrete and tile in poultry, meat and canning plants.

Directions For Use

GENERAL-PURPOSE CLEANER FOR WALLS, FLOORS, FEED PAILS, WATERERS AND EQUIPMENT: Use BioSentry® Acid-A-Foam™ at 0.75%-2.5% solution (1-3 ounces per gallon of water) (8-24 mL / L). Vary the amount depending on the soil load and how difficult the surface is to clean. This product may be used through high-pressure cleaning equipment, foaming devices, steam cleaners, or it may be used manually with a cloth, sponge or brush. After cleaning, rinse away soils with fresh water or wipe off with a clean sponge.

FOOD PROCESSING EQUIPMENT, UTENSILS AND OTHER FOOD CONTACT SURFACES: Clean as above. Thoroughly rinse cleaned surfaces with potable water before they are reused. Where recommended or permitted, apply a sanitizer solution to food contact surfaces before reuse. Avoid contamination of food during application and storage.

Apply to surfaces and, if possible, let stand for 10-15 minutes before thoroughly rinsing all surfaces with clean water at high pressure. After thorough cleaning, let surfaces dry as much as possible and then follow-up with an appropriate disinfecting solution. Consult a BioSentry Technical Representative for recommendations.
