  • OMEGA AQ-6122 is a cationic surfactant-dispersant, designed to disperse and penetrate organic based deposition, and biofilms.
  • OMEGA AQ-6122 can be applied to industrial cooling water systems remove oil/debris deposition and sludging and provides excellent control of anaerobic and aerobic bacterial growth via the penetrating action of the dispersant and its active ingredients.
  • OMEGA AQ-6122 can be applied as a ‘dual-purpose’ dispersant and biological control agent.
  • OMEGA AQ-6122 dissolves hydrocarbon based deposition rapidly to regain heat transfer efficiency. It can be utilized to reduce sludging and debris fall out and it acts as a bio-penetrant to disperse and destroy biofilms on internal piping and heat exchange equipment.
  • In cooling towers and wet-scrubber applications, fumes and airborne debris are captured in the water phase without plugging and solids precipitation, or deposition upon internal piping and equipment- ‘with enhanced biological control.’

Dosage Range and Feed Methods

The OMEGA AQ-6122 dosage is based upon the nature of the foulants.

Cooling Tower Applications.
A typical dosage for the removal of sludging would be 40 ppm to 100 ppm of OMEGA AQ-6122 per total system volume. The nature and volume of the fouling will determine the optimum dosage. Feed methods can be either through slug feeding, or continuous with a metering pump. Pumps should be of PVC, Teflon, or polyethylene composition. In applications of high heat, transfer lines of mild steel, copper, or stainless, are acceptable.

Wet-Scrubber and Spray Header applications.
For the dispersion of airborne debris and fume particulate, OMEGA AQ-6122 should be applied to the make-up water. The dosage range is highly variable, from 50 ppm to 500 ppm. The nature of the solids, the stack/header fume velocity, and volume of water through put will all affect the required dosage of OMEGA AQ-6122. Feed method should be continuous with a metering pump. Pumps should be of PVC, Teflon, or polyethylene composition. A slight foaming on the scrubber tank is desired. Excessive foaming may lead to carryover out of headers and stacks. Observations of discharge ports should be made to determine if foaming is excessive.

Safety and Handling

OMEGA AQ-6122 should not come in contact with skin, eyes, or hair. Use appropriate safety equipment to prevent contact. If contact does occur, flush area with water for 15 minutes. Seek medical attention if irritation develops. If eye contact occurs, flush eyes with water for 15 minutes and seek medical attention.

Container Size and Shipping

OMEGA AQ-6122 is available in 275-gallon totes, 55-gallon drum and 5-gallon quantities.

EU sizing: 1040 Liter totes, 208 Liter drums, and 19 Kg containers

Environmental Concerns

OMEGA AQ-6122 is an organic compound that is toxic to fish and wildlife. Do not discharge into open waterways. Wastewater treatment methods may be required before spent solutions are discharged, especially if the oil and grease loading is extensive, as OMEGA AQ-6122 will disperse this organic contamination. For airborne scrubber applications, carryover and foaming may result in mist exposure in the vicinity of the emissions discharge. The proper dosage of OMEGA AQ-6122 is critical to prevent misting and airborne carryover.
