In order to figure out how many MCS CD Generation Chemical (packs) are necessary for one decontamination; Multiply the BSC volume by 0.13 g/ft3 (4.7 g/m3) to determine the mass of ClO2 required to be generated.
Use the following table to determine the amount of tablets required.
|Minimum||Maximum||BSC Size||CD Generation Chemicals|
|Volume – ft3(m3)||Volume – ft3(m3)||Width – ft (m)||Packs|
|0 (0)||25 (0.7)||0-2 ft (0.0-0.6)||(1) A / (1) B|
|25 (0.7)||60 (1.7)||3-4 ft (0.91-1.22)||(2) A / (2) B|
|60 (1.7)||90 (2.5)||5-6 ft (1.52-1.83)||(3) A / (3) B|
Frequently Asked Questions:
- What is the shelf life for MCS CD Generation Chemicals?
- Two years from the date of manufacture.
- What is the recommended temperature for storage of the MCS CD Generation Chemicals?
- Controlled room temperature is the preferred storage condition (60-85 deg F), since that is the temperature on which the shelf life is based on. The CD tablets have been stored for 6 months at 50 deg C (120 deg F) without deterioration. Similar tablet formulations have been stored for 6 months at 60 deg C (140 deg F) without deterioration. We have not tested storage at temperatures below room temperature, but we don’t see a failure mechanism there.
- Are there any DOT travel restrictions on keeping the tablets in a van or other vehicles?
- In the configurations we sell the MCS CD Generation Chemicals, they are considered a Small Quantity Exception under 49CFR 173.4, basically making them exempt from the regulations.
- Are there any restrictions to the quantity of MCS CD Generation Chemicals kept in a van?
- A. As long as the tablets are being used in the course of doing business (an MOT-Material of Trade), any reasonable quantity would be allowed. (See previous Q&A)
