Has anyone seen any difference in performance between sodium Citrate (SC) and sodium gluconate (SG) as chelators? Also, what usage rates can I assume make them comparable, where the SC is created by adding citric acid to the water?

My supplier runs out of one or the other and I would like to be certain how to switch gears without mishaps.

If there are other variables that change the performance of either, I would be also thankful to know.

Many thanks
