Non-hazardous, cost-effective magnesium hydroxide alternative for odor and corrosion control

  • Controls atmospheric and dissolved sulfide - uses alkalinity supplementation and sulfide prevention to reduce odors and corrosion.
  • Fast-acting - provides sulfide control within seconds from the application point, whereas magnesium hydroxide can take up to 2 hours to dissolve.
  • Minimizes FOG - reduces the accumulations of fats, oils, and grease in collection and treatment systems and the dissolved sulfide load on treatment plants, resulting in operational and cost savings.
  • Environmentally safe - contains no hazardous substances as defined by CERCLA and OSHA. The components are stable, safe compounds found in nature.
