Current technology for biological control of cooling tower water uses various oxidizing and non-oxidizing chemical products known as biocides. Biocides, used to kill micro-organisms, are meant to be toxic. While often effective at killing the micro-organisms, biocides also present users with problems such as high costs, health and safety concerns, adverse environmental impacts, and chemical compatibility issues with products used for corrosion and scale control. To eliminate the problems associated with transport, storage, handling, and use of dangerous chemical biocides, ProChemTech International, Inc. has developed a revolutionary new technology, the ElectroBrom Biocide System™. This patent-pending system produces an on-site aqueous solution of bromine biocide by electrolysis of a USEPA registered, non-hazardous precursor aqueous salt solution.
In comparison to current toxic chemical biocide technology, the ElectroBrom Biocide System offers multiple advantages:
The ElectroBrom Biocide System can be paired with the SafeChem non-hazardous water treatment chemicals for a complete, low environmental impact water treatment program. The SafeChem treatment line was specially formulated to cost-effectively control scale, corrosion, and deposition and to be compatible with the ElectroBrom Biocide System.
