A biocide designed for protecting industrial cooling-water systems

| By Chemical Engineering

Spectrus TD1100E is a new biocide for industrial cooling-water systems that is designed to reduce microbiologically influenced corrosion, as well as the potential risk for Legbiocide wordcloud2ionella bacteria. It is a non-oxidizing, liposome-enhanced microbiological control agent used to kill or control the growth of microbial populations in open evaporative-cooling systems. In addition to protection against corrosion and dangerous bacteria, this biocide can also provide improved heat-transfer rates, increased efficiency and diminished adsorbable organic halogens and biomass in effluent water. — GE Power & Water, Schenectady, N.Y.
