Halogen Stabilizers

Biofilm control is critical in the papermaking process and in cooling water systems. We provide solutions that deliver enhanced biofilm control through stabilization of hypochlorites (most commonly bleach), providing a fast-kill of planktonic bacteria, reducing corrosion and improved compatibility with other additives.

Aphelion™ Stabilizer 15

Aphelion™ Stabilizer maximizes halogen stability in the presence of high halogen demand. Through this fully reversible stabilization of the active ingredient, it enhances biofilm control, ensuring fast-kill of planktonic bacteria as well as promoting a reduction in corrosion. Implementation of Aphelion™ technology reduces the need for excessive feed of chlorine, and reduces the production of unwanted disinfection by-products.

  • Application: Industrial
  • Ideal for cooling towers
  • To be applied via a dosing pump; no specialized feeders required
  • Product packaging size: 1 ton IBC flowbin

Benefits when used in Cooling Systems:

  • Provides excellent control in cooling systems with high cycles or long holding times
  • Recommended for all chlorine-treated cooling water systems

Major advantages when compared to using an oxidizer only system:

  • Improves heat transfer efficiency via biofilm removal
  • Improves scale and corrosion inhibitor use and consumption
  • Improves chlorine stability vs. high pH
  • Helps the removal of biofilm as penetrating the sessile phase of the microbial developments

Equinox™ Stabilizer 15

Equinox™ Stabilizer 15 maximizes halogen stability in the presence of high halogen demand. Through this fully reversible stabilization of the active ingredient, it enhances biofilm control, ensuring fast-kill of planktonic bacteria as well as promoting a reduction in corrosion. Implementation of Equinox™ Stabilizer 15 technology reduces the practice of excessive feed of chlorine and reduces the production of unwanted disinfection by-products.

Benefits when used in the Papermaking process, in conjunction with hypochlorite: 

  • Significantly improves bacterial efficacy of hypochlorite solutions in pulp slurries
  • Improves material integrity by lowering vapor phase corrosion compared to other halogen stabilization methods
  • Lower equipment and maintenance costs
  • Reduced oxidant reactions with organics (e.g. with oil and other organics in steel processing)
  • Lowers the consumption of oxidizing compounds (as less readily consumed by organics)
  • Reduces the predisposition for AOX generation
  • Product is applied via a dosing pump; no specialized feeders required
