Directions for Developing and Reclaiming with a Dip Tank
The tank comes assembled, you will just need to make sure the spicket is securely in place before using it.
- Fill the tank with water up to the fill level, this is indicated on the inside of the tank.
- Place your exposed screens in the dip tank and allow them to soak in the tank for 1-2 minutes.
- Remove the tank and rinse any leftover unwanted emulsion from the screen.
- Fill the tank with a mixture of water and Ecotex Dip Tank Solution. *For the 30 Gallon Dip Tank you will need to add 3 gallons of solution to 30 gallons of water. 1 Part Dip Tank Solution is needed for 10 parts of water. There is a fill line inside the dip tank that will indicate the max fill line
- Place screens in the tank and allow to soak between 1-3 minutes. Do not leave long enough for the emulsion to fall off in the dip tank. *This will reduce the lifespan of the chemical in the dip tank.
- Remove screens from the dip tank and rinse off residual emulsion left on the screen, it should come off fairly easily after soaking.
*Do not allow the emulsion to break down in the dip tank. This will shorten the life of your chemical and contaminate the water.
