ADBROM 40 is an easy-to-use solution of sodium bromide. When activated by a chlorine source (such as gaseous chlorine or sodium hypochlorite), ADBROM 40 provides a cost effective way to treat industrial cooling waters using bromine chemistry.

In practice, a wide range of factors can affect the treatment, including condition of the make-up water, system halogen demand, treatment objectives, sensitive equipment locations, and sample point locations. A wide range of sodium bromide-oxidant mole ratios am indicated on the label use directions. This range allows users to design treatment programs to fit specific applications.

The halogen residual (measured as mg/L Cl2) maintained in a treated system depends on the treatment objectives and the site NPDES permit requirements. Successful recirculating and once-through cooling water treatment programs have maintained a 0.4 – 1.3 halogen residual (measured as mg/L Cl2) for at least 4 hours in the treated water.
