Mixed Oxidant Solution and Sodium Hypochlorite Generators for Water Disinfection

For 20 years, MIOX has designed and manufactured reliable and cost-effective on-site chemical generators for water disinfection.  MIOX offers two different types of on-site chemical generators.  Our sodium hypochlorite generators (HYPO) are engineered to provide the absolute lowest cost bleach available on the market.  In contrast, our Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) systems are engineered for maximum disinfection efficacy through proprietary cell design, control of power and cell geometry.

MIOX technology has been engineered for a variety of water treatment applications in many sectors including:

  • Drinking water including municipal water treatment, wastewater treatment, and humanitarian disaster relief
  • Cooling water treatment for biofilm removal, legionella removal and improved heat transfer efficiency
  • Industrial water treatment including process water and cooling tower water treatment
  • Oil & gas water including produced water treatment, frac water and flowback water, hydrogen sulfide removal (H₂S), disposal wells, enhanced oil recovery (EOR) with mobile water treatment solutions available

How MIOX Works for Industrial Cooling Water Treatment

MIOX’s patented on-demand chemistries for cooling tower and cooling loop water disinfection improve safety, lower general corrosion rates, increase performance, and save money.  The unique qualities of MIOX chemistries lower corrosion rates by 80% in copper and 50% in steel, resulting in a reduction of downtime, maintenance and expense.  Additionally, MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution and sodium hypochlorite generators improve workplace safety by eliminating the handling and storage of hazardous chemicals while maintaining steady disinfection residuals.

Benefits of Using MIOX for Cooling Tower Water Treatment:

  • Cleans up biofilm in your cooling loop using chlorine + peroxide
  • Reduces biocide costs by 75%
  • Reduces oxidant usage by 15-20%
  • Reduces dosage, ORP and corrosion
  • Effective at higher pHs
  • Safest biocide alternative in the industry
  • Outperforms traditional chemical treatments

H2gO Purifier Uses MIOX MSR Purifier Chemistry

H2gO PurifierOne of the original MIOX founders, Rodney Herrington, has expanded off the original MSR MIOX Purifier Pen and developed a brand new product that has set out to be the best personal water purifier in the world.

The H2gO Purifier uses the same MIOX electrolysis process that converts brine into a sterilizing solution, using the same simple water disinfection chemistry of mixing salt, electricity and water.  The hand-held device can treat anywhere from 1/4 gallon to 5 gallons of water, making it perfect for camping trips, missionaries, first responders, families with limited access to fresh water, and even military explorations.  H2gO is highly effective, yet still economical and easy to use, requiring only common salt to make the brine.

Improving on the original MSR Pen, the H2gO Purifier has eliminated battery replacement by using a rechargeable battery similar to a cell phone and can last over 500 charges.  If you’re unable to charge the device by USB, the solar panels on the back can charge the battery as well.  The Purifier also doesn’t have any special salt requirements, allowing customers to use common table salt.  Other improvements include an expanded capacity and improved reliability.

Aqua Research is the name of the company producing the H2gO Purifier, with Rodney Herrington as the CEO.  Recently, the company just announced receiving funding from the New Mexico Angels angel-investment group in order to start production in the next several weeks.  The chemistry and technology that is used will be licensed through MIOX.  Read more about the funding announcement here.

We wish all the best to Aqua Research as they strive to provide cost-effective and sustainable water treatment to the people who need it most – those with no access to safe water.  For more information on Aqua Research and the H2gO Purifier, visit www.h2gopurifier.com

How On-Site Chemical Generation Works, The Electrolysis Process

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 chemistries have multiple water disinfection application including
Municipal water treatment, industrial water treatment, aquatics water, hospital disinfectant, secondary disinfection and legionella treatment, food and beverage processing, livestock watering and farm sanitation solutions, and oil and gas water and produced water treatment.
