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

Watch this customer testimonial from one of our municipal drinking water installations:
Hydrological fracturing continues to expand the opportunity for domestic energy production, although both the increasing demand for water to use in the process as well as the increasing amount of produced water resulting from hydrological fracturing both create environmental challenges for this critical energy production process. Due to these concerns, more producers are turning to the reuse of produced water through many hydrological fracturing jobs. Although produced water reuse is effective at mitigating water sourcing and disposal concerns, proper treatment of these waters between jobs is critical.
Microbial control in produced waters slated for reuse applications is among the most important treatment processes. Without adequate disinfection, the growth of excessive microbial populations can negatively impact well drilling and production in several ways, including causing corrosion and the souring of the well. While a number of biocides can be used to disinfect produced waters, a number of operational and economic factors must be considered when choosing the best biocide for a given job. Chemical complexity of produced water is also an often-considered factor, but until now, the impact of the produced water on microbial response to specific biocides has not been considered when choosing the best biocide.
Recently, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh published a report in the journal Environmental Science and Technology which described the results of a study they conducted regarding the impact of produced water on the inherent susceptibility of bacteria to glutaraldehyde and sodium hypochlorite. They found that exposure of bacteria to the highly saline conditions found in produced waters caused the bacteria to respond to stresses caused by that environment on a molecular level. These changes, in turn, caused the bacteria to become more resistant to glutaraldehyde and more susceptible to inactivation with hypochlorite.
MIOX’s Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS), a hypochlorite-based chemistry, has been deployed to treat produced waters from a variety of shale plays and has consistently been proven to provide exceptional levels of microbial population control. Results from this latest study help explain the high degree of performance seen by MIOX’s customers who use MOS to disinfect produced water. As produced water reuse continues to increase in popularity, MIOX looks forward to working with partners and customers throughout the industry to provide a reliable disinfectant solution for these waters and applications.
A leading producer of canned vegetables in the United States was facing a serious challenge controlling microbiological growth in their canning plant cooling water.
After hearing of the revolutionary disinfection efficacy of Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) chemistry, they reached out to MIOX for a better cooling water treatment solution. Continue reading
MIOX is exhibiting at the 2014 Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) from June 1 – 5. Representing MIOX is Senior Scientist Andrew Boal, who will be showcasing the company’s revolutionary on-site Mixed Oxidant Solution generators and hypochlorite generators for drinking water treatment, advanced oxidation process and municipal wastewater treatment technology to the more than 19,000 water professionals attending SIWW.
Ranging from small communities to large cities with more than 10 million people, water treatment facilities are turning to MIOX chemistries for their drinking water disinfection because the proven disinfectant improves the quality and safety of drinking water while also providing significant economic savings. Conventional treatment processes consume a lot of fuel and release harmful carbon emissions. As such, there is a rising demand in the development of improved and/or new disinfection technologies.
MIOX offers a comprehensive line of on-site chemical generators which combine salt, water and power to generate cost-effective water disinfectants on site. Whether you need the lowest cost and most reliable sodium hypochlorite (HYPO) on the market, maximum disinfection using our proprietary Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS), or a combination of on-site generated aqueous chlorine and ultraviolet light (Cl2/UV) through our new Integrated Advanced Oxidation (iAO) technology, MIOX can provide a wide range of solutions for your water treatment needs.
The Aerojet Rocketdyne site for Groundwater Remediation in California was able to save up to 75% on chemical costs and improve worker safety by switching to MIOX’s iAO technology. To learn more, download the Case Study by clicking here.
The Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) is the global platform to share and co-create innovative water solutions. Stakeholders from the global water industry gather at SIWW to share business opportunities and showcase the latest water technologies. SIWW is part of the strategic program of the Singapore Government to grow the water industry and develop water technologies.
Interested in learning about how Chlorine/UV Advanced Oxidation can remove organic microcontaminants at lower cost than traditional hydrogen peroxide/UV Advanced Oxidation? It’s a technology MIOX has been developing for over three years. Dr. Andrew Boal gave a presentation on this technology to the NGWA Groundwater Summit in Denver on May 6, 2014 describing the results of a groundwater remediation pilot that we conducted in northern California. You can check out the abstract online and learn more about MIOX at www.miox.com.
The National Ground Water Association (NGWA) is a nonprofit organization for anyone affiliated with the groundwater industry. NGWA is composed of U.S. and international groundwater professionals — contractors, scientists and engineers, equipment manufacturers, and suppliers. The 2014 NGWA Groundwater Summit gives these individuals the opportunity to model, explore, characterize, bank, inject, extract, treat, and predict subsurface needs with everything groundwater.
MIOX will exhibit at SynGas to showcase on-site generated Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) as a clean, safe alternative water treatment for industrial water treatment. MlOX’s on-site chemical generation technology provides the safest water disinfectant in the market. As demonstrated in industrial water treatment applications worldwide, MIOX’s MOS is proven to remove biofilm, reduce corrosion, eliminate water souring and other problems related microbiological growth.
One of the major applications we will be focusing on is how producers can use both on-site generated Mixed Oxidant Solution chemistry and on-site generated sodium hypochlorite for cooling tower water treatment. Other major applications include process water and wastewater at refining plants, fertilizer plants and ammonia plants.
Benefits of MIOX in industrial facilities include:
- Increased thermal efficiency through biofilm removal
- Reduction of biocide costs by up to 75%
- Reduced dosage, ORP and corrosion
- Reduced trucking, carbon emission and fuel consumption by eliminating delivered chemicals
- Increased workplace safety through removal of storage and handling of hazardous chemicals
