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™ 790 Water Treatment Microbiocide

AQUCAR™ 790 Water Treatment Microbiocide is a broad-spectrum biocide developed to inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi in process waters. AQUCAR 790 Water Treatment Microbiocide is effective in both acid and alkaline environments, and especially effective against sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) which are particularly troublesome in enhanced oil recovery operations, such as injection water treatment, top-side systems, pipeline protection and storage.
