    Storage & Handling

    Handling and Storage Information

    Recommended storage periods:

    • Dry product: up to two years
    • Stock solution: 2 – 5 days
    • Feed solution: 1 – 3 days
    • Storage of the dry product and solutions for longer than the recommended periods may be acceptable under the correct conditions but could result in some loss of product efficiency.
    • Storage of the solids should be in a cool, dry place and conditions of high temperature and high humidity should be avoided.
    • Under such conditions the hygroscopic nature of the product may result in excessive moisture up-take and resultant caking.
    • Packages should be kept sealed when not in use.
