This is a question that we are asked regularly… and for good reason.
Whether you are using BevClean for…
- Cleaning your whole system
- Cleaning 1 or just a few flavors
- Flushing product for a flavor change
- Preventative Maintenance
- Servicing a flavor that is down
…the amount of BevClean needed changes based on the type of service you need to perform.
# of ounces in each BevClean box:
- 1 gallon box = 128 oz
- 3 gallon box = 384 oz
# of fluid ounces per linear foot of tubing:
- 1/4 inch I.D. (inner diameter) tubing holds 0.5 oz per foot
- 3/8 inch I.D. (inner diameter) tubing holds .78 oz per foot
Note: Most installation companies are using 3/8″ I.D. tubing as a standard today, so we will use 3/8″ tubing in any examples.
BevClean Needed (3/8″ tubing) =
(Length of Tubing Run x # of Lines to Be Cleaned) x .78 oz BevClean
- Let’s say your tubing run length is 60′ long.
- And you have 8 lines you will be servicing that are 3/8″ I.D (inner diameter).The calcualtion would be:(60′ x 8) x .78 = 374 oz of BevClean needed.
- Thus, you would need 1 box of BevClean.
- Please allow several ounces over pour per line of cleaner during the process. So we would recommend you have a second box on hand in this particular example.
As always, please leave us any feedback or questions to which you would like answers.
