X-Ray Drain Cleaner is a specialty compound used in industrial and municipal systems, such as unclogging drains in food plants where accumulations of organic matter tend to clog drainage systems.


For Municipalities: Pour the liquid into a manhole(s); use approximately 5 to 6 gallons for the initial dosage. Follow with water and allow 1 to 2 hours of contact time. If normal flow has not been obtained, repeat the former procedures. After the blockage has been opened, flush the line thoroughly with cold water.
For Industrial: Remove the strainer from the floor drain(s) and add 1/2 gallon of product for every 2 feet of sewer line, which is being treated. After the blockage has been opened, flush the line thoroughly with cold water.
