EW -4000 is a highly concentrated product and removes a wide variety of soils and stains from shell eggs in pressure spray egg washing machine operations. Built-in defoamer suppresses foam in wash tanks, thereby reducing downtime due to machine inefficiency.

EW -4000 is designed for use in pressure spray washers in egg cleaning plants, particularly where heavily soiled eggs are encountered. All recommended use concentrations of EW-4000 are safe to use on aluminum, zinc, tin, brass, copper, steel, or stainless steel surfaces, as well as tile, brick, porcelain, and painted surfaces.

Highly Concentrated – High use dilutions enable low use costs. Completely formulated – No additives necessary under most conditions.

EW -4000 is a multifunctional product, which is formulated with a blend of wetting and penetrating agents, alkaline builders, corrosion inhibitors, water conditioners, and de-foaming agents. It is free rinsing and Non-Toxic. A 2- oz./gallon solution will sequester 20 grains of water hardness.

EW-4000 should be used at the rate of 1 to 2 oz./gallon of wash water. The exact amount needed will depend upon the soil load, water hardness, and quantity of broken eggs. Wash only cool temperature eggs. Do not re-use wash water. Avoid use of water containing trace levels of iron. Do not immerse eggs in cleaning solution for more than 5 minutes. Temperature of the wash solution should be between 90°F and 115°F. The temperature of the eggs being washed should be 20°F – 40°F higher than the wash solution.

If the temperature difference is less than 20°F there is a danger of egg contamination due to the soiled wash water. Too low of a temperature will also provide poor cleaning, and may cause excessive foam to be produced. Adequate temperature is must for optimum cleaning.
