1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of chlorine per gallon of water. It is VERY important you do not exceed this concentration as it is considered harmful.

You need to know what % chlorine you mean PRIOR to determining ratios for mixing

 

there is a ppm limit for most things and you need to mix accordingly.............

 

Chlorine is NOT all equal


Because we always have is never an appropriate response!

In US typical sanitizer no rinse PPM limit of AVAILABLE chlorine is 200 PPM.  As Scampi said not all chlorine is created equal.

How many ppm?

 

(a) Presentation/Status of Final product is Unknown.

(b) "Washing" process is Unknown, eg "soaked" ?

© "Chlorine" generating chemical is unknown.

 

2 Questions -

 

(1) Is there a Philippine (or Consumer Destination) Process Regulatory Requirement ?

(2) The "product" limitation is that a customer will likely not accept any residual taint/odour of chlorine. This probably (but perhaps also related to [a,b,c] limits the free Cl2 level to a few ppm.


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C
