Inhibited Citric Acid 3109

Resin Cleaner 3109 is an ammoniated liquid citric acid blend designed to clean iron fouled zeolite resin and iron oxide fouled closed loop piping systems.


Inhibited Citric Acid 3109 is used to maintain the efficiency of a zeolite water softener. Whenever the softener resin bed is fouled with iron, formula 3109 should be used to restore peak efficiency. Inhibited Citric Acid 3109 can also be added to softeners weekly as a normal preventative maintenance routine. Inhibited Citric Acid 3109 can also be added to closed piping systems to remove iron oxide deposits and to passivate iron surfaces.

Initial Cleaning: Soak resin bed in 8% by weight solution of Inhibited Citric Acid 3109 for 4-8 hours. Back wash resin bed thoroughly and regenerate softener. For severely fouled resin beds, increase soak time to 12-24 hours. A second application may be beneficial for improved iron removal.

Loop Cleaning: Dosage will vary depending on severity of fouling. Contact your industrial cleaners.com representative for further application information.
