Biocides and Oxidizing Agents

The Aquaguard 600 Series of products from Guardian Chemicals Inc. includes microbiocides and biodispersants, in both non-oxidizing and oxidizing chemistries. The oxidizing chemistries include chlorine, bromine, and non-halogen (peroxide) based oxidizers. The microbiocides have a broad range of antimicrobial properties which make them very effective sanitizers, disinfectants, slimicides, bactericides, fungicides, and algicides.

These products are used very successfully in a wide variety of industrial and commercial water treatment applications, including the following: recirculating cooling water systems and cooling towers, influent water systems and cooling ponds/lagoons, industrial water scrubbing systems and air washers, heat exchange water systems and evaporative condensers, wastewater systems, and other service/auxiliary water systems.

Some of the 600 Series products also carry registrations that allow their use in treatment of process water systems of pulp, paper, and paperboard manufacturing mills. Other products have proven efficacy to control microbial populations, particularly noxious, toxic and corrosive hydrogen sulfide producing bacteria known as sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB), in production water in a variety of oilfield applications including the following: secondary/enhanced oil production, well completions and workover/stimulation fluids, as well as petroleum transport (pipelines), storage systems, and surface equipment.

Some of the Aquaguard 600 Series products are also used as preservatives in metal working fluids, water based coatings, pigment and filler slurries using in paper and paperboard manufacture, and also find general applications in in-can preservation of industrial and consumer products.
