On October 16, 2015 we were thrilled to receive the award for Water Management Company of the Year at the Southwest and Midcontinent Oil & Gas Awards. The annual Southwest and Midcontinent gala ceremony was held in Dallas, TX, where hundreds of oil and gas executives gathered together to celebrate Operational Excellence, Innovation, Health & Safety and Environmental Leadership.

One of the most challenging aspects of disinfecting produced and flowback waters is that the composition of these waters is often highly variable, especially when they are reused for additional production operations. Inspired by the chemistry that occurs when produced or flowback waters are treated with chlorine-based disinfectants, MIOX’s product development team has come up with Continue reading
As we have recently seen in the news, in New York there have been more 10 deaths with more than 100 people infected with Legionnaire’s disease. Even though most of the water treatment for cooling towers, fountains and potable water supplies are treated with certain biocides for legionella prevention, why do we still see roughly 24,000 cases of Legionnaire’s disease every year around the globe?

If you run a News Search on Google for chlorine gas, a plethora of recent events would welcome you:
- August 5, 2015 Grand Rapids water treatment plant evacuated after accidental chemical tank mix up.
- June 2, 2015 a North Carolina data center chlorine gas leak injured 5 workers after they were exposed to the noxious fumes.
- January 21, 2015 Parsippany, NY a chlorine gas leak sickened four hospital workers and OSHA fined the facility for $60,000.
Do you want to see the very same poisonous gas ISIS uses as a chemical weapon in YOUR neighborhood?
Sorry for a harsh attention gathering title here. The fact of the matter is that chlorine gas is used as a chemical weapon these days in Middle East primarily because it’s the most abundant method to treat water, and can very easily be stolen and “weaponized”. Even more frightening, many water treatment plants in the United States use chlorine gas in great abundance with thousands of tons stored on location at all times.
MIOX presented Chloramine: An Effective Biocide for Produced Waters at the 2015 SPE Produced Water Handling and Management Symposium on May 21 in Galveston, TX. The presentation by Dr. Andrew Boal focused on produced water treatment studies in Arkansas, California and Colorado using chloramines generated in situ through the reaction of electrochemically generated hypochlorite with ammonia.

MIOX is exhibiting and presenting a new technical paper at the SPE Produced Water Handling and Management Symposium on May 20-21 in Galveston, TX. Our technical presentation by Dr. Andrew Boal focuses on produced water treatment using MIOX sodium hypochlorite generators to generate chloramines in situ through the reaction of hypochlorite with ammonia.

A major semiconductor manufacturing facility replaces bromine and hypochlorite water treatment regimen with MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution to recycle tooling process water for industrial cooling tower water treatment. The installation is particularly important as it proves yet again Mixed Oxidant Solution as an effective biocide for ammonia-laden waste water and in high pH environments. Continue reading
Top Ammonia producer in United States replaces delivered 12.5% hypochlorite and bromine with MIOX sodium hypochlorite generator and is successfully controlling biological contaminants for cooling tower water treatment. MIOX sodium hypochlorite generators are designed to produce the absolute lowest cost hypochlorite on the market. Continue reading
Two major district energy centers in Phoenix, Arizona, USA replace cocktail of chemicals (stabilized bromine, anti-corrosion, antiscalant) with MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution for cooling tower water. The stabilized bromine regimen was replaced with two (2) MIOX Vault M30s at each facility. Continue reading
Parkson Corporation – MIOX’s exclusive partner for municipal water treatment in the United States and Canada – announces it’s recent installation with Paducah Water Works in Kentucky. Parkson’s private labeled MIOX product line, MaximOS, was selected by the City of Paducah to replace delivered sodium hypochlorite at its downtown water treatment facility. The 900 lb/day Mixed Oxidant Solution generator has helped the City of Paducah improve their water treatment operation in numerous way including:
- Reduced operating costs
- Improved water quality
- Increased facility safety by removing storage of chemicals
- 25-30% reduction in Alum chemical usage to achieve a settleable floc particle
