Industrial Water Treatment/ Industrial Cooling Water Treatment

Reduce your hypochlorite or chemical biocide costs up to 75%

MIOX’s patented Mixed Oxidant Solution or sodium hypochlorite generators for industrial cooling water treatment and disinfection improves safety and thermal efficiency, lowers general corrosion rates, increases performance, and saves money. The unique qualities of MOS help lower oxidant levels introduced into the cooling tower which lowers corrosion rates by up to 80% in copper and 50% in steel, resulting in a reduction of downtime, maintenance, and expense. Additionally, MIOX generators improve workplace safety by eliminating the handling and storage of hazardous chemicals (chlorine gas, bulk hypochlorite, bromine, organic biocides) while maintaining steady microbiological control.

Technology Overview

MIOX systems use a proprietary electrolytic process, electrolyzing a brine solution (either based on salt or delivered brine) and producing primarily two different chemistries:

sodium hypochlorite
Mixed Oxidant Solution

The Mixed Oxidant Solution is proven to be more effective compared to straight sodium hypochlorite especially in controlling biofilm due to the trace amounts of Hydrogen Peroxide residing in the solution.

MOS is pH independent. It will work at both alkaline or neutral pH programs.

How it Works

MIOX system can feed disinfection chemistry directly into the tower sump or injected into the circulation loop from a buffer tank. The system can be controlled by the existing Hypochlorite chemical control system on site, either ORP or chlorine analyzer or mass balance.

A Case Study

A MIOX system was installed at the site and started treating the water with Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS). PREPA witnessed an immediate improvement in temperature and the energy load of the plant started to increase. The temperature decreased and all the generating capacity lost due to biofouling was gained back because the exchanger was cooling effectively.
