Scrubber Formula is a unique, multi-purpose odor neutralizer specifically designed to replace or augment traditional wet scrubber and mist chamber chemicals or scrubbants such as bleach, chlorine dioxide, chlorine gas, and caustic soda. For tough organic odor loads, Scrubber Formula replaces acid(s) as the sole scrubbant. In the biological odor control application, Scrubber Formula polishes organic odors and replaces carbon adsorption systems and can be added to nutrient feed system or fogged counter-current to stack exhaust. For air pollution equipment maintenance, Scrubber Formula cleans packing media and internals, and the chemical can be added while systems are operating to avoid unnecessary down-times. Imparts a pleasant, natural clean scent at stack exhaust. Scrubber Formula can also be misted, atomized, fogged, topically sprayed, or employed as an additive, and because of its versatility, Scrubber Formula is the chemical of choice for facilities opting to streamline their chemical inventories.
This proven-effective chemical contains an ecologically sound surfactant, Ordenone® inclusion clathrate encapsulator, zinc ricinoleate, an additional trade secret encapsulator which lowers the vapor pressure on malodors, a blend of several essential oils and essential oil derivatives, phytochemicals, terpenoids, biologicals designed to reduce organic odors, and a silicone defoamer.
Ordenone® is an odorless inclusion clathrate compound which acts as a chemical lattice to entrap sulfides, amines, mercaptans, ammonia, indole and skatole compounds, and certain aldehydes. The following chart illustrates an independent laboratory test of ammonia removal at 77.5% achieved with 3% Ordenone® in water. OCP&E® Scrubber Formula contains a higher level of Ordenone® than 3%.
Zinc Ricinoleate is a zinc salt of ricinoleic acid. Zinc oxide comprises the zinc source, while ricinoleic acid is a purified fatty acid from castor seed oil extracted from the Ricinus communis plant. Zinc ricinoleate does not contain ricin. Zinc salts of ricinoleic acid are effective at controlling a broad spectrum of odors. Because of its safety profile and effectiveness, zinc ricinoleate is widely used in personal care products such as commercial deodorants, anti-perspirants, laundry detergents, etc.
Biological Odor Control: The Bacillus spore blend targets a wide range of malodorous organic compounds including ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, volatile fatty acids, and mercaptans. The biological component also degrades proteins, starches, cellulose, fats, oils, and greases. The application specific bacteria produce extracellular enzymes that degrade organic matter, such as proteins. The degradation by-products are metabolized by the bacteria cells and utilized for growth. Thus, the slow break-down of these materials, which would otherwise result in the formation of numerous malodorous compounds, can not occur, and the odors are prevented at point source.
Available in Citrus Mint or Lemon.
Citrus Mint essential oil blend of orange oil, lemon oil terpenes, citral, peppermint oil terpenes, coumarin, cinnamal, cinnamon leaf oil, clove leaf oil, Mentha arvensis oil, and other essential oil derivatives.
Lemon essential oil blend of lemon oil terpenes, orange oil, Litsea cubeba fruit oil, and lemon peel oil.
New for 2016-2017: There is a new version of Scrubber Formula, Bio-Boost, which contains a cellular bio-activation liquid additive plus plant steroids. The new formula contains all of the key ingredients of the standard formula plus two new components described herein:
Bio-Catalyst: The non-active, vegetable based bio-stimulant contains a proprietary, patented (US Patent 20110139713), blend of natural marine algal extracts, plant derived surfactants, a blend of vitamins, and anti-corrosion/anti-foaming agents. The bio-catalyst reduces hydrogen sulfide production by increasing the metabolic activity of aerobic micro-organisms in the wastewater, thereby raising the ORP levels. The bio-catalyst stimulates the aerobic micro-organisms to levels at which they reduce the organic electron donor molecules available to the anaerobic sulfide, reducing micro-organisms for their sustained metabolism. This mechanism, along with the reduction in the anoxic laminar layer that exists at the interface of the pipe and the water stream, further reduces the viability of the H2S producing bacteria in wastewater collection systems and pipeline treatments.
Plant Steroids: A concentrated plant extract containing the steroid saponin acts as an anti-stress agent to accelerate the decomposition process. The result is faster decomposition of wastes, producing more completely digested and odorless end products.
For Plant Steroids, Expect Results in Five to Ten Days:
