Biofilm control is critical in certain applications such as those found in the papermaking industry and cooling water systems. The long-desired product is one that provides enhanced biofilm control through the stabilization of the active ingredient, providing fast-kill to planktonic bacteria, reduced corrosion and is a product that is easy-to-use.

Equinox™ Stabilizer 15

Equinox™ Stabilizer 15, a formulation from Lonza Inc., 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 eliminates the practice of excessive feed of chlorine and reduces the production of unwanted by-product.

  • Application: Industrial
  • Ideal for paper-making and cooling towers industries
  • To be applied via a dosing pump; no specialized feeders required
  • Product packaging size: 1 ton IBC flowbin
  • Sold in units

Other major advantages can be enjoyed when compared to utilizing an oxidizer only:

  • Low 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
  • Excellent compatibility with scale and corrosion inhibitors and optical brighteners    

Using Equinox™ Stabilizer 15 in the Papermaking Industry

  • Significantly improves bacterial efficacy of hypochlorite solutions in pulp slurries
  • Improves material integrity by lowering vapor phase corrosion compared to other halogen stabilization method

Another major advantage can be enjoyed when compared to utilizing an oxidizer only:

  • Overall enhanced performance and efficiency upon implementation    

Using Equinox™ Stabilizer 15 in Cooling Systems     

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

Other major advantages can be enjoyed when compared to utilizing an oxidizer only:

  • 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
