Using food grade salt (yes, table salt!), MIOX electrochemical generators create your cooling tower water treatment biocide each day to keep your tower free of bacteria and biofilm. The MIOX solution can be fed directly into the tower sump or injected into the circulation loop from a buffer tank, and can be controlled by your existing control system, ORP or chlorine analyzer, and link to DCS or SCADA.
The customer replaced proprietary biocides (stabilized bromine and glutaraldehyde) with Mixed Oxidant Solution for their industrial cooling tower water treatment and improved microbial control while reducing cost. Continue reading
A massive data center in France switched to MIOX cooling tower water treatment chemicals for their nine (9) cooling towers. The facility was able to remove all the chemical biocides stored on site while achieving better bacteriological control including Legionella contamination prevention. Continue reading
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.
