Our Mixed Oxidant Solution is more effective at removing biofilm and Legionella from water compared to common biocides.
And this isn’t our biased opinion.
We conducted a study comparing disinfection using three oxidizing biocides and three commonly used non-oxidizing biocides against Legionella pneumophila. The organism L. pneumophila is pathogenic and commonly lives within biofilms.
Which means that eradicating the biofilm in cooling towers is the first step towards preventing an outbreak.
There have been two published studies comparing the disinfection effectiveness of MOS with hypochlorite at various pH values. MOS consistently performs better at higher pH against a variety of organisms, including viruses, oocysts, and bacteria. Studies conducted at the University of New Mexico comparing equivalent chlorine concentrations of hypochlorite to MOS showed that, after 10 minutes of exposure at a pH of 8.0, MOS achieved total kill against L.pneumophila and P. aeruginosa while chlorine alone did not.
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.
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?

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 →
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 →
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 →
