ECOCIDE DB5 RO is a fast acting non-oxidative broad spectrum biocide. It is intended for microbiological control and prevention of membrane biofouling. ECOCIDE DB5 RO has immediate disinfectant action and rapidly biodegrades to non-toxic products. Due to those properties, ECOCIDE DB5 RO is a safe and cost effective solution for RO systems.
Manufactured in accordance with TUU 20.5-31749798-004:2013.
Broad spectrum agent: is effective against bacteria, fungi, yeasts, cyanobacteria, algae
Quickly degrades to safe compounds, does not accumulate in the environment
Can be used to control microbiological growth and prevent biofouling of reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, microfiltration membranes in water treatment application
Compatible with all types of membranes and water treatment materials
Fully miscible with waterи
Colorless to tan liquid with a pungent odor
pH (10% solution)
Relative density at 20°C, g/cm3
Canister 10 kg
ECOCIDE DB5 RO based on a 5% DBNPA (2,2-dibromo-3-nitrilopropionamide). The acting of the biocide based on the destruction of bacteria cells, algae and other microorganisms internal structures. ECOCIDE DB5 RO prevents the formation of biofilms.
ECOCIDE DB5 RO does not an oxidizer and does not interact with the membrane web and other materials used in water treatment.
ECOCIDE DB5 RO is environmentally friendly as it is easily and quickly destroyed and does not accumulate.
To determine the exact dosage and regime of dosage contact the manufacturer or supplier in your area.
Non-stop injection dosage depends on flow rate and microbial load of raw water. Normally, it is in the range of 4...400 mg/L. This method of usage is not suitable for drinking water.
Periodic injection dosage depends on flow rate and microbial load of raw water as well as severity of membrane fouling and normally is in 200...400 mg/L. Recommended periodicity is at least once in 5 days. Each interval should span 1 hour or longer.
Membrane chemical cleaning
When using Ecocide BD5 RO for membrane cleaning, concentrations of the biocide depends on quantity of cleaning solution and extent of membrane fouling. It normally is in the range 80...800 mg/L. Recommended method of use is to circulate the solution or soak the membrane for 1...3 hours. Recommended periodicity is once in 5 days.
