On-site generation of chemistries for water disinfection is a technology that is based on decades-old scientific principles. MIOX on-site generators (OSGs) use an electrolysis process that takes a solution of sodium chloride (salt) and water and applies electricity, to produce chlorine-based disinfection chemistry. Expertly designed Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) and sodium hypochlorite generators from MIOX give customers the freedom to produce disinfectants in the amount they need, when they need it. Because of the benefits that OSGs provide, many industries and water treatment companies are switching to on-site chemical generation and moving away from more traditional chlorine delivery systems such as chlorine gas, concentrated sodium hypochlorite, and bulk calcium hypochlorite.
MIOX is a cutting-edge technology company that has been making EPA approved safe drinking water for close to twenty years. Many communities are turning to MIOX clean water technology for their surface water treatment and groundwater water treatment because Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) is a proven disinfectant for cost-effectively reducing disinfection byproducts and improving the quality and safety of drinking water.
MIOX’s extensive experience in water disinfection ranges from rural communicates to large cities with more than 10 million people – such as city of Bogota, Columbia (testimonial) where MIOX on-site chemical generation cost-effectively replaced dangerous chlorine gas.
Increasing Power Plant Output Using a New Methodology for Cooling Loop Maintenance
Tom Muilenberg, MIOX Director of Commercial Operations and Cem Candir, MIOX VP of Sales & Marketing will present the technical paper “How Stripping Biofilm from the Cooling Water Loop Impacts Power Plant Production Output” at the Cooling Tower Institute (CTI) Conference in Corpus Christi, TX on Monday, February 4, 2013.
MIOX presents a cost effective and environmentally friendly methodology to biofilm control within the cooling water loop. This proven approach utilizes MIOX patented technology and Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) chemistry for improved heat exchange efficiency, resulting in a significant increase in power plant production output.
“Once MIOX was introduced into the system, results were seen immediately and the energy load of the plant increased,” said Carlos Eli Torres, Senior Chemist at Palo Seco Power Plant. “The efficiencies gained from increased load production, reduced chemical and water usage, and lower operations and maintenance costs added up to over $34 million per year in savings. The operation cost of the MIOX unit was roughly a quarter of the bulk hypochlorite price. The switch to MIOX was a no brainer.”
“Not only the cost advantage, but also the effectiveness of the MIOX unit was quite visible and it was another testament of how effective the Mixed Oxidant Solution was removing biofilm,” said Tom Muilenberg, MIOX Director of Commercial Operations. ”Cleaner condenser tubing resulted in increased heat transfer, allowing them to operate their turbines at a higher load at a fraction of bulk Hypochlorite cost.”
