LORESCO® SC•3®, due to its dust-free manufacture, is simple to install by either mixing and pumping or by pouring dry. With deep anode systems, pumping from the bottom up is recommended. LORESCO® SC•3® has superb pumping qualities due to the addition of surfactants and when agitated in water, takes on the characteristics of heavy mud. A recommended mix is seven gallons of water per one-hundred pounds. After installing SC•3®, allow twenty-four hours settling time before energizing. The modified surface of the carbon particles coupled with the action of the surfactants in SC•3® will achieve positive electrical contact by settling. Vibrating or compacting is not necessary. See installation section in this catalog for additional pumping data.
LORESCO® SC•3® is a surface modified, blended, and sized carbon backfill with surfactants.
