Accepta 6008 is a high performance, highly concentrated solid chemical cooling water treatment based on the very latest anti-scaling, anti-fouling and corrosion inhibition technologies. It is scientifically formulated for the treatment and protection of cooling water systems operating under “corrosive” water conditions.
Accepta 6008 inhibits the corrosion of ferrous metals using both cathodic and anodic protection; it also incorporates copper corrosion inhibitors; and molybdate.
Accepta 6008 comprises a small solid chemical baton (0.36kg) wrapped in a water soluble bag. It is designed to treat open cooling tower water systems during system start-up, and helps to achieve a suitable inhibitor concentration during this stage.
Accepta 6008 is also a good “catch up” solution for cooling systems that have lost water or where the inhibitor feed has been absent for some time. It is also good for use in small cooling systems where metering of the inhibitor into the system is not practical.
Accepta 6008 contains PBTC phosphonate, HEDP phosphonate, Versaflex-one, Ter-polymer, HPA, POCA, triazole and molybdate.
Accepta 6008 is packaged in cases containing 30 x 0.36kg water-soluble bags, each bag being enclosed in a sealed cardboard tube.
Each case weighs 10.9kg.

Application & Dosage Information
The initial recommended application rate for Accepta 6008 is 50 ppm. The application rates provided below are based on the corrosive indices of particular waters, however in practice, rates should be set to suit individual water conditions.
|Water Quality Range||Dosage*||Test Range|
|Ryzner Stability Index||Calcium||Alkalinity||Chemical level in
|6.0 – 6.5||<50ppm||<100ppm||10 – 25ppm||2 – 4ppm||0.5 – 1.0ppm|
|6.5 – 7.5||25 – 40ppm||4 – 6.5ppm||1.0 – 1.6ppm|
|7.5 – 8.5||40 – 50ppm||6.5 – 8ppm||1.2 – 2.0ppm|
* Each baton of Accepta 6008 yields 25 ppm of product when added to 14.4m3 of system volume/water.
Testing and Control
Molybdate (as Mo) test kits suitable for monitoring and controlling the use of Accepta 6008 are available from Accepta. Accepta test kits for organo-phosphonate can also be used.
When dosed into a cooling system, operators should attempt to find a high flow area in the sump of the cooling tower or inside an accessible make-up tank. Please note that product dissolution rates will vary depending upon water composition, temperature and flow rate.
It is always advisable to carry out a ‘Control Of Substances Hazardous to Health’ (COSHH) assessment before use.
