Alken-Murray Nu-Binder

Characteristics: 

 Bacterial Count 54 million colony forming units/ml 

(204 billion CFU/gram)

 Appearance  Dark brown liquid
 Odor  Musty scent
 pH  5.0 to 8.0

 

Features and Benefits: 
  • Neutralizes municipal waste odors, without adding a perfume.
  • Apply for initial control of lagoon odors, especially hydrogen sulfide, while bacterial treatment gets a chance to seed the system, eliminating the cause of odors.
  • Binds ammonia odors in animal farming and waste treatment applications.
  • Slow release, polyphenolic aromatic biopolymer with cation exchange capacity 350 - 900 meq/100 grams, to promote improved settling at low cost.
  • Buffering agent for high-salt stress and 8 strains tolerate 7% or higher salt.
  • Scavenges free radicals.
  • Reduces clumping of filamentous organisms in ponds, lakes and lagoons.
  • Concentrate is stable and has a long shelf-life.

 

Application Directions:
The microbial component ofNU-BINDER is activated by DILUTION with water. Thoroughly shake bottle or pail, before diluting, to stir the brown residue up from the bottom, ensuring that all of the spores are in solution. The shelf-life of diluted product is one (1) month. Hot water, bleach, disinfectants, and strongly alkaline detergents will deactivate NU-BINDER, and should not be mixed with the product.

For large area applications (garbage cans, dumpsters and surrounding surfaces): Dilute 2-8 ounces of NU-BINDER per gallon of water, and spray on odor source. Severe odor can be neutralized in 10-20 minutes with an initial full-strength application, followed by diluted applications for lasting results.

To Eliminate Hydrogen Sulfide Odors and Corrosion in Waste Treatment Plants and Lagoons:     Meter product into system as close to the source generating the highest levels of hydrogen sulfide.

Day 1: Use the following formula to shock the system:

(Max H2S in ppm) x (Gallons Maximum Effluent Daily Flow)
1,000,000

= gallons of Alken Nu-Bind to apply

*The resulting answer gives dosage in gallons, and should provide a decrease of 60 to 75% hydrogen sulfide concentration at the end of the first 24 hours of application.

Day 2: Reduce dose to 60% of Day 1 application rate

Day 3: Reduce dose to 40% of Day 1 application rate

Maintenance: Continue reducing dosage by 10% a day until odor begins to return, then maintain slightly above that level. Experience has shown that rates as low as 2 ppm have been effective.

For Lift Stations: Apply 100 to 200 yards up-line from the problem station.

For H2S AND Ammonia Odor Control at Turkey and Pig Barns: For each 1000 square feet of barn area, dilute 1 pint (16 oz.) in 2 gallons of unchlorinated water and apply with a backpack sprayer or agricultural sprayer, every 7 to 10 days. Keep product damp to maintain effectiveness.

For H2S and Ammonia Odor Control in Chicken Barns: For each 1000 square feet of barn area, dilute 1/2 gallon of NU-BINDER in 5 gallons of unchlorinated water and apply with either an agricultural sprayer or a backpack sprayer, the night before chickens are introduced to the barn. Reapply twice a month, if necessary. Keep product damp to maintain effectiveness.

 

Packaging And Handling:
Soilandwater.com can provide Nu-Binder in 1, 5, and 50 pound containers. Store in a cool place. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, or open wounds and wash hands with warm, soapy water after handling.
