  • Fat Removal
  • Re-wetting performance
  • Low flavor profile
  • Safer environmental impact
  • Possible lower use rates

How much do I use?
It is recommended to work with the Hydrite Membrane Program for product use rate recommendations.

What package sizes are available?
The Apollo #327 is available in drums and totes.

How do I dispense Apollo #327?
Apollo #327 is dispensed similar to HydriCleanse #325 or Bright Cleanse #321.  Contact your Hydrite representative with any questions.
