A top ammonia producer in the United States is successfully keeping their industrial cooling tower water free of biological contaminants through effective biofilm and algae removal.
The facility is taking safety measures by eliminating the use and storage of hazardous chemicals at their facility by using industrial water treatment system with MIOX on-site hypochlorite generator.
Results from three successful installations at different sites throughout North America show MIOX is the preferred cooling water treatment chemical for biological control, optimal facility safety, and corporate sustainability.

The MIOX Blackwater mobile water treatment system has allowed frac and flowback water recycle and reuse in the Fayetteville Shale since Fall 2013. Lab data from samples taken from the produced water retention ponds show superior SRB and APB kill in addition to hydrogen sulfide (H₂S) removal and iron oxidation.

The substitution of conventional biocide treatments with MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) chemical generator has resulted in a biocidal cooling tower water treatment process that costs less and is more effective than isothiazoline and bromine biocides. The positive results were documented from an installation at a leading consumer goods manufacturer in France.

The installation of MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) has been shown to be as effective as utilizing isothiazoline compounds and organic biocides while significantly reducing operation costs. Water analysis and a real-time ATP (adenosine triphosphate) test showed positive impact to the cooling water when the biocical treatment was changed to MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS). Also the facility observed low ATP rates with a decreasing trend since the installation of the RIO Zuni systems.
MIOX technology helped the facility meet its objectives of:
1) Microbiological Control: The new treatment process utilizing MOS is as effective as the previous treatment process (isothiazoline & bromine) at controlling bacterial growth.
2) Safety & Simplicity: On-site chemical generation eliminated the manipulation of up to 5,500 lb/year biocidal products from filling meters and/or manual injection. Furthermore, the facility was able to completely eliminate the transportation, storage and handling of delivered chemicals and their containers.
3) Economic Benefits: Lower operating costs from removing the purchase of delivered biocidal products and switching to on-site generation which utilizes only salt, water and electricity.

Waterborne illness from microbial growth in building water distribution systems is a real threat to water safety and communities. MIOX’s patented Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) chemistry for secondary disinfection can help eradicate biofilm that can harbor Legionella and other microorganisms without the use of Chlorine Dioxide. MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution and sodium hypochlorite generators improve workplace safety by eliminating the handling and storage of hazardous chemicals while maintaining steady disinfection residuals.
On-site generated Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) using salt, water, and electricity provide one of the best options available for control of Legionella, ultimately resulting improved safety and elimination of biological hazards. Legionnaires’ disease (LD), the more severe form of legionellosis, is characterized as a type of pneumonia. Legionellosis is caused when Legionella pneumophila or other Legionella species are introduced to a host as an aerosol, such as from the spray from a shower. The infection can be fatal. Easy to kill in its free-floating form, Legionella can harbor in biofilms, which then slough off and can aerosolize in faucets and shower heads. By controlling biofilm, Legionella can be effectively controlled. Mixed Oxidants offers the most effective, safest and lowest cost option for the control of biofilm. Mixed Oxidants also meet ASHRAE standards for secondary disinfection of institutional piping.
The chart below shows the results of MOS at pH 8.5 against Legionella. MOS provided better disinfection (>5.5 log inactivation) compared to the other biocides and validated field data whereby bromine chemistry and non-oxidizing biocides are easily replaced with MOS chemistry. Hypochlorite (bleach only achieved a 4 log inactivation and bromine showed 4 log initially and then decreased in efficacy over time.

We are proud to announce that our exclusive partner, Parkson, has upgraded a water recycling facility in Hawaii with the MaximOS™ sodium hypochlorite generator on-site generation disinfection system that will deliver immediate savings in operating costs while maintaining the highest water quality standards.
John Deogracias, Parkson’s Commercial Leader for MaximOS said, “The three largest expenses for any plant are labor, power and chemicals. The technology behind MaximOS is state of the art and allows for the most reliable and efficient means to support the water recycling facility operator’s O&M budget.”
The Hawaiian water recycling facility is an award-winning site that serves a critical function on the island, by helping to preserve the state’s valuable drinking water supplies. The 13 million gallons/day facility relies on MaximOS and other technologies to facilitate irrigation by the municipal government and supply process water for a power plants and oil refinery water.

MIOX was selected by Kol Services Ltd (Kol), a contractor that builds urban water supply systems in Kampala, Uganda, for potable water treatment at a housing community. The community was at risk of water born disease and MIOX technology was selected to provide safe drinking water. A total of three RIO Zuni 2.0 units will be used for an estimated 1 million liters of drinking water treatment per day. This will be the first installation in Uganda for MIOX.
Kol is a multiservice construction company that has been operating in Uganda since 2000. The company covers all areas of construction, including the pre and post phases and has over 12 years of experience in Construction work, Water works and Engineering works. With clients from both Uganda and abroad, Kol has become Uganda’s leading construction company.

“The most significant advantage over gas chlorination or hypochlorination is an ability to maintain chlorine residuals further along the water distribution system, due to better biofilm removal. Other noted advantages of mixed oxidants are ease of operation with self-cleaning electrolytic cell on-site generators, fewer safety issues in comparison to gas chlorination, and lower costs compared to purchasing hypochlorite in bulk.”
