Nipac B contains a blend of Nitric and Phosphoric Acid. It is designed primarily for applications in Breweries.
Nipac B is also suitable for use in other high care industries and is very effective in the removal of mineral scale, protein build up and vegetable/salad staining in food preparation applications.
Nipac B is formulated to be low foaming and is suitable for use in recirculation applications. It can be used as an alternative to caustic based detergents in Breweries for the cleaning of Bright Beer Tanks and Tankers, whilst under CO₂ atmosphere.
· Excellent mineral and protein removal
· Aids removal of beer and milk stains
· Safe for use on Stainless Steel
· Can be used under CO2 atmospheres
· Suitable for use in CIP applications
In use concentrations of Nipac B are application dependent and should be established during trials. Cleaning temperatures should be optimised during trials. However, it is not advisable to use Nitric Acid based products such as Nipac B above 50°C.
In contact with Copper or its alloys (Brass, etc), Nitric Acid based products will produce Toxic Gas. It is essential to confirm that equipment to be cleaned does not contain these or related materials.
For equipment in regular contact with Nipac B, it is recommended that pipe/flange seals are manufactured from PTFE. For equipment in occasional contact with Nipac B, EDPM seals are suitable.
Nipac B is not suitable for direct food contact.
For Clean in Place applications of Stainless Steel, glass and synthetic resin lined vessels or pipelines; Nipac B is typically circulated at 1% to 4% v/v.
It is advisable to check compatibility before using Nipac B with synthetic resins.
Nipac B can be used in a CO2 atmosphere without degradation.
Before circulating the detergent, pre-rinsing with water is advisable. After cleaning, the circulation loop should be flushed with clean water until pH or conductivity of the rinsings is approximately equal to that of the water.
For vessels that are very heavily scaled with mineral salts; a point may be reached where significant scale still exists, but all the useful acidity has been consumed. In these instances, it is advisable to optimise descaling procedures by starting at around 4% v/v concentration and titrating acid strength during the clean.
If concentration falls to below 1% acid, additional Nipac B should be added to increase concentration back to 4% v/v. By noting the total volume of acid used, subsequent cleans can be optimised to use a single dose of this volume of acid.
This product is a hazardous material, therefore an additional delivery surcharge will be added to the order.
