Product Instructions 

1. Mix the liquid solution with the microbe packets at the rate of one packet per gallon of liquid. This will activate the microbes and awaken them from their dormant state. Let the mixture stand for at least two hours. A waiting period of 24 hours is best.?

2. The product may be applied with either a “HUDSON” sprayer, brush or mop (bucket). The affected area must be agitated with a brush or mop. This can be manual or with a power scrubber. This is determined by the size of the area being cleaned. Pressure washers can also be used, do not excede 100 degrees F. temperature and 600 psi.

3. The solution must not be allowed to rise above 100 degrees F. or to completely dry out. Water must be present at all times since this is the source of oxygen for the microbes.?

4. Typically, the area may be rinsed off or mopped. The surface will have been cleaned and the microbes will have attached to the hydrocarbons. The complete remediation process will continue for several days as long as area is kept moist.

5. After application, the solution can be collected and reused several times. The solution can be stored in an open container and it is non-flammable.

Soil Remediation

The ULTIMATE Eaters® is specifically formulated to provide the most rapid cleanup for hydrocarbons contaminated by soil. The design of this product enables a simple, cost effective approach to soil remediation. The broad range of pollutants which The ULTIMATE Eaters® attack makes it very unique as a tool for industrial and governmental use. It can be used on new oil spills or on soil which has been contaminated for years. The general procedures for use are as follows:

1. Determine the type and amount of contamination by laboratory analysis. The primary information needed is the TPH (Total Parts Hydrocarbon). A profile of the contaminated area should be made to ascertain the actual depth of the contamination. The procedure which follows is for contamination which is less than three feet in depth and with contamination levels less than 10,000 ppm. This is considered surface contamination. For treatment of soil which is contaminated to a depth greater than three feet or with concentrations greater than 10,000 ppm, please consult with your sales representative.

2. Check the pH of the soil to make sure it falls within the acceptable range of 4 to 11 for the survival of the Microbes. If the pH falls outside this range you will have to pre-treat the soil to bring the pH into the desired range.

3. Mix the biocatalyst solution with the Microbes and allow to sit for 24 hours. In an emergency situation, you may use the solution after only two hours.

4. If the soil is to be treated in place, then plow or till the soil to a depth of approximately 6 inches. This will break any crust which has formed and allow the solution to quickly penetrate the contaminated area. If the soil is to be moved to another area for treatment, then spread the soil over a layer of plastic, to a depth of no more than 18 inches.

5. Spray The ULTIMATE Eaters® mixture on the soil at an approximate rate of 1/3 gallon per square yard.

6. Apply water to the treated area until the soil has reached a water saturation of 30% to 60%. Do not allow soil to dry for entire 28 days.

7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 on the third day and on the tenth day.

8. A TPH test should be made after 14 days to determine the level of activity. If within 28 days the contamination has not reached the desired level, another application may be required.
