The proper selection and use of wet-end biocidal treatments is a key element in the effort to optimize efficacy and efficiency in papermaking. Biofilm control represents a challenging form of microbial control in a mill and can lead to a variety of mechanical and product issues. Chlorine-based biocides are often selected to maintain microbial control for cost, efficacy, and ease of application considerations. Hydantoin stabilization technology was developed to benefit from the advantages of chlorine-based oxidants.
Equinox® Stabilizer is a non-biocidal halogen stabilizing solution, designed to optimize the availability of active chlorine sources (sodium hypochlorite) in high chlorine demand, industrial process water applications. Specifically recommended for use in the paper-making industry.
Benefits of using Equinox® Stabilizer technologies in papermaking applications include:
- stabilization and efficacy enhancement
- adsorbable organic halides (AOX) reduction
