  • Easy to Use: Easily dispensed and controlled; required concentration is easily measured with convenient field test.
  • Non Corrosive: Non corrosive to most surfaces when applied at the proper dilution.
  • Non Irritating: Low toxicity prevents skin irritations with use solution.
  • Penetration: Diffuses easily into cracks and crevices. 
  • No Rinsing: Treated surfaces do not require rinsing at dilution rates of ≤25 ppm iodine.
  • Strength Indicator: When amber color in diluted solution disappears, germicidal activity is gone and new solution should be applied.

Recommended Uses
Soft drink plants, bottles, cans, storage tanks, food processing equipment, milk processing equipment.  Back-flush for teat cups and water treatment in food and beverage plants. 
Mycodide is recommended for cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing in hospitals, institutions, food plants, and commercial buildings.

Use Instructions


Prior to sanitizing, remove gross filth by either flushing, scraping or soaking the desired area to be sani- tized.  Wash surfaces or objects with detergent or cleaner and rinse with potable water.

Soft Drink Plants: Thoroughly rinse bottling and pre-mix dispensers with water. Drain thoroughly and fill equipment with 25 ppm solution (refer to use solution chart). Just before resuming operation flush 25 ppm solution from equipment with potable water. When changing over between soft drink flavors, rinse system well with water, flush with 25 ppm solution. Drain thoroughly before use.

Sanitizing Bottles and Cans: Proportion Mycocide into the final rinse of the container washer or rinses in concentrations of 8-12 ppm titratable iodine (see solution chart).

Sanitizing Storage Tanks: After cleaning, use a 25 ppm solution for sanitizing beer fermentation and holding tanks. Use solution can be applied by using a coarse spray or can be used in conjunction with automated clean-in-place systems. No water rinse is required after sanitizing.  Drain thoroughly before use.

Equipment in Poultry, Meat, Rabbit, Egg Processing Plants, Frozen and Fresh Pack Processing Plants:
To clean equipment, scrub surfaces with a mop, brush, sponge or cloth using 50 ppm solution. Rinse with potable water. For sanitizing previously cleaned surfaces, apply 25 ppm solution by using a coarse spray, flushing, or with a clean sponge. Thoroughly wet surfaces and allow to thoroughly drain. No final water rinse is required.

Sanitizing Poultry Drinking Water: For sanitizing poultry drinking water, use one ounce Mycocide for every 52 gallons of water providing 6 ppm titratable iodine. Continuously proportioned in water line. Drain thoroughly before use.

Milk, Citrus and Ice Cream Processing Plants: Applied routinely as a sanitizing coarse spray (12 1/2 ppm to 25 ppm titratable iodine) on walls, conveyors, equipment and floors. Mycocide will reduce or eliminate odors in the processing area. Use on filling equipment to reduce or eliminate bacteria associated with condensation on equipment and pipes. Regular use as a sanitizer at 25 ppm helps prevent milk stone formation on equipment. Drain thoroughly before use.

Retort Cooling Water: Mycocide helps reduce the growth of microorganisms in retort cooling water.  Mycocide should be added to the retort cooling water in sufficient quantity to maintain 0.1 to 0.5 ppm titrat- able iodine at the discharge side. To reach this level of iodine, an initial concentration of 5 ppm titratable iodine is recommended (1 oz. of Mycocide to 55 gallons of water.) The amount of Mycocide required will depend on the organic load and the alkalinity of the water. A suitable iodine test kit, capable of measuring titratable iodine in the range of 0.1 to 0.5 ppm, should be used to check iodine levels


Back-Flush for Teat Cups on Dairy Farms: To clean/sanitize milking machine teat cups between cows, rinse with clean water, then inject 1 ounce Mycocide per 26 gallons of water (12.5 ppm) or 1 ounce Mycocide per 13 gallons of water (25 ppm), flush, and drain from the unit. Do not re-use solution.

Milking claw systems:  For use through claws between milking each cow.  Helps reduce micro- organisms on liners which may cause mastitis. 1.  Pre-rinse thoroughly with potable water or a thoroughly mixed solution containing 1 oz. of Mycocide  per 13 gallons of water.  This solution provides 25 ppm titratable iodine. 2. Flush system with a thoroughly mixed solution containing 1 oz. of Mycocide per 13 gallons of water. Allow at least one minute contact time. 3. Thoroughly drain system.

Wash Down Hoses:  For general cleaning in the milking parlor use a thoroughly mixed solution containing 1 oz. of Mycocide per 13 gallons of water.  Thoroughly rinse down all surfaces.

For Use As An Udderwash:  To clean cow's teats prior to milking, use a well mixed solution con- taining 1 oz. of Mycocide per 13 gallons of water.  Wash teats and flanks thoroughly, and then dry with a clean, single service paper towel.

IMPORTANT:  Follow State and local Health Department requirements for sanitizing milking equipment.  Do not mix Mycocide with hot water.  Use cool or tepid water only.
