IV. SPECIAL HANDLING AND WORKER PRECAUTIONS FOR STORAGE AND FIELD APPLICATION
1. Flammability:
WMI-2000 is non-flammable.
2. Ventilation:
Avoid breathing dust or aerosol due to possibility of sensitization. Use adequate ventilation.
3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact:
Minimize contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Wash hands thoroughly after handling culture.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 100ºF
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: 35ºF
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: 45ºF - 90ºF
Store in a cool, dry location. Keep partially-used containers tightly closed. Prolonged exposure to high temperature and humidity may lower activity of product.
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: NA
V. SHELF LIFE
The shelf life of WMI-2000 is 2 years if stored at ambient temperatures
VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method:
The culture should be activated for 2 hours in water, when applicable. Conditions for use vary depending on substrate concentration and type, pH, temperature, availability of nutrients, oxygen content, and liquid medium (static or flowing).
2. Concentration/Application Rate:
Inoculation concentration is 5-9 billion spores per gram.
3. Conditions for Use:
Temperature requirements are between 35ºF and 100ºF. The optimum dissolved oxygen content is 2 ppm at the sludge-to-water interface. Nitrogen and phosphorous are key nutrients which promote cultural growth, and should be maintained at concentrations of 15-20 ppm and 2.5-5 ppm, respectively. The optimum pH range is between 7.0 and 8.0.
VII. TOXICITY AND EFFECTIVENESS
a. Toxicity:
NA

b. Effectiveness:
