Halogen Stabilizer

Equinox™ Stabilizer 15

Equinox® Stabilizer 15

Equinox® Stabilizer 15, a formulation from Lonza Inc., maximizes halogen stability in the presence of high halogen demand. Through this fully reversible stabilization of the active ingredient, it enhances biofilm control, ensuring fast-kill of planktonic bacteria as well as promoting a reduction in corrosion. Implementation of Equinox® Stabilizer 15 technology eliminates the practice of excessive feed of chlorine and reduces the production of unwanted by-product.

Other major advantages can be enjoyed when compared to utilizing an oxidizer only:

  • Low equipment and maintenance costs
  • Reduced oxidant reactions with organics (e.g. with oil and other organics in steel processing)
  • Lowers the consumption of oxidizing compounds (as less readily consumed by organics)
  • Reduces the predisposition for AOX generation

Using Equinox® Stabilizer 15 in the Papermaking Industry

  • Significantly improves bacterial efficacy of hypochlorite solutions in pulp slurries
  • Improves material integrity by lowering vapor phase corrosion compared to other halogen stabilization method

Another major advantage can be enjoyed when compared to utilizing an oxidizer only:

  • Overall enhanced performance and efficiency upon implementation

Using Equinox® Stabilizer 15 in Cooling Systems

  • Provides excellent control in cooling systems with high cycles or long holding times
  • Recommended for all chlorine-treated cooling water systems

Other major advantages can be enjoyed when compared to utilizing an oxidizer only:

  • Improves scale and corrosion inhibitor use and consumption 
  • Improves chlorine stability vs. high pH
  • Helps the removal of biofilm as penetrating the sessile phase of the microbial developments
  • Product packaging size: IBC
  • Improves heat transfer efficiency via biofilm removal
