With options available globally for use in biofouling control, anaerobic microbial control, and fluid preservation, the comprehensive AQUCAR™ Water Treatment Microbiocides portfolio includes key chemistries (link to chemistries) such as glutaraldehyde, glut/quat blends, DBNPA, bronopol, OPP and dimethyl-oxazolidine.

AQUCAR™ 720 Water Treatment Microbiocide for Industrial Water Treatment

AQUCAR™ 720 Water Treatment Microbiocide combines the powerful antimicrobial action of glutaraldehyde enhanced by the addition of a biodispersant additive. It is especially effective in controlling slime-forming bacteria, sulfate-reducing bacteria and algae in water cooling towers and oil and gas applications.
