BioSentry Liquid Tray & Egg Wash is a chlorinated, low-foaming cleaning compound specifically designed for washing trays, plastic chick boxes, egg cases and filler flats in automatic tray washers. It is also ideal for washing shell eggs intended for table use, break out, or hatching. BioSentry Liquid Tray & Egg Wash is low foaming and ideal for use in chemical proportioners as well as in manual feeding operations. It is an excellent clean-in-place (CIP) product for egg breaking operations.
Directions For Use
For cleaning trays, use a 0.25% – 0.75% solution (1/4 – 1 ounce per gallon of water) (2 – 8 ml/ liter). Hot water is recommended for the cleaning solution (130° – 160° F or 54.4° -71.1 °C). Vary the amount, depending on the soil load, water quality and water temperature. Note: Lower water temperatures may be used by increasing the rate of product used.
After cleaning with BioSentry® Liquid Tray & Egg Wash, follow-up with an appropriate disinfecting solution. Consult your BioSentry® Technical Representative for recommendations.
SHELL EGG CLEANING: Use a 0.25 – 0.75% solution (1/4 – 1 ounce per gallon of water) (2 – 8 ml/liter), depending on water quality and soil on eggs. Recommended temperature of wash water is between 95° – 120° F (35° – 49° C). The wash water should be at least 10° – 15° F (5° – 8° C) warmer than the eggs. If excessive foaming occurs due to egg breakage, an antifoaming agent may be required. After cleaning eggs with BioSentry® Liquid Tray & Egg Wash, eggs should be sanitized with an appropriate BioSentry® disinfectant. Contact a BioSentry® Technical Representative for guidance.
HATCHING EGG CLEANING: Follow directions for shell egg cleaning. Additionally, measure chlorine residuals in recirculating wash tanks and maintain a chlorine reading above 50 ppm using liquid bleach or another suitable product. Drain wash tank every 2-3 hours, minimum. If excessive foaming occurs due to egg breakage, an antifoaming agent may be required. After cleaning eggs with BioSentry® Liquid Tray & Egg Wash, eggs should be sanitized with an appropriate BioSentry® disinfectant. Contact a BioSentry® Technical Representative for guidance.
AS A CIP CLEANER: Flush gross soils from system with a tepid water rinse. Circulate BioSentry® Liquid Tray & Egg Wash at 0.5% solution (1 oz. per 2 gallons water) (4 ml / liter) through system at 130° – 160° F (54° – 72° C) for 5 – 10 minutes. Do not let temperature of circulating solution drop below 110° F (43° C). Drain and rinse with potable water or an acidified rinse solution. Sanitize equipment with an approved sanitizer just prior to reuse. Follow recommendations of federal and local health authorities.
