  • Patent number: 10669637
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods of using biodegradable heterocyclic compounds of relatively low toxicity as corrosion inhibitors. The present method is used to inhibit corrosion of a metal surface in contact with an aqueous system using compounds comprising a purine structure, and provides enhanced protection against corrosion of metals in aqueous systems. The method comprises the use of corrosion inhibitors that are generally resistant to halogen attack and provide good corrosion resistance in the presence of oxidizing halogen-based biocides. Formulations comprising purine-based compounds are also disclosed.

    Abstract: Disclosed is a concentrated cooling water additive that is substantially non-corrosive within a pH range of 2-12 and contains polymeric dispersant(s) and aromatic azole(s) that exhibits improved stability, possibly as a result of the interaction of the hydrophobic groups in the dispersant polymer and the aromatic azole(s). This improved stability allows for both reduced corrosivity of the formula and reduced manufacturing costs. Benefits of the disclosed formulations include improved safety for handling and shipment, more concentrated formulations available in liquid form, reduced shipping costs and storage space, reduced heat of neutralization during product manufacture, reduced costs of manufacture due to removal of need for caustic or acid addition and reduced environmental compliance costs associated with washing and waste handling step.

  • Patent number: 7910057
    Abstract: This invention deals with a process for treating and sanitizing animal habitats. In addition to sanitizing the habitat the production of ammonia and odor from fecal matter and urine is inhibited or terminated. In the process an animal habitat is cleaned and subsequently treated with trichloromelamine (TCM). The TCM may be applied by spraying the habitat with a solution of TCM, by dusting the habitat with powdered TCM or by treating bedding/litter with TCM. This process produces healthier animals and as such the productivity of a given grow out is increased. The process of this invention is particularly suited to animal habitats which are used to raise batches of hogs, cattle, turkeys and chickens on a continuing basis. The process of this invention further reduces the bacteria count of the animal habitat.

  • Patent number: 7179384
    Abstract: A method to control a cooling water system based on the rate of consumption of fluorescent polymer is described and claimed. The method includes providing a cooling water system and a water treatment product including at least one fluorescent polymer and a fluorescent tracer. Measuring the fluorescence of the fluorescent polymer and calculating its rate of consumption provides a way of determining whether to adjust one or more operating parameters in the cooling water system.

  • Patent number: 7112284
    Abstract: Oxygen scavenger which can exhibit excellent oxygen reduction effect in a wide variety of conditions is provided as an alternative volatile oxygen scavenger to hydrazine. The oxygen scavenger contains a heterocyclic compound having N-substituted amino group such as 1-amino-4-methylpiperazine and a hydroxylamine compound such as N,N-diethylhydroxylamine. The oxygen scavenger may further contain a polyhydric phenol type catalyst such as pyrogallol. By adding the oxygen scavenger to feed water of a water system of a boiler, oxygen reduction treatment of the water system is carried out.

  • Patent number: 6797177
    Abstract: This invention relates to a process for inhibiting scale and fouling on metal surfaces exposed to an aqueous system, particularly a circulating aqueous system. The process comprises adding glutamic acid N,N diacetic acid, or salts thereof, to the aqueous system. Glutamic acid N,N diacetic acid, or salts thereof, act as a chelating agent and is biodegradable. The process is particularly useful for inhibiting the formation of scale and fouling on metal surfaces of steam generating and cooling systems.
