  • Improved pulp/sheet quality
  • Reduced corrosion
  • Reduced downtime
  • Improved worker safety
  • Reduced costs

This microbiocide has applications in a variety of paper industries, including printing and writing paperspackaging paper and board, and tissue and towel.

Safety Benefits

Spectrum XD3899 microbiocide is safe and economical, without sacrificing results. In fact, you can often achieve gains in production and sheet quality, at a cost equal to or less than your existing microbiological control program.

Additionally, the microbiocide is registered with the EPA and approved by the FDA and BfR, offering an extra level of safety and peace of mind.

Automated Dosing and Control

The Spectrum XD3899 microbiocide is produced on-site using patented dosing equipment and Solenis’ proprietary OnGuard™ XD monitoring and control system.

The dosing equipment blends an ammonium bromide solution with sodium hypochlorite and mill fresh water under required reaction conditions. This ensures 100 percent conversion of the biocide components.

By strictly controlling the reaction, the dosing equipment ensures that only the intended biocide is produced. The dosing equipment also automatically adjusts biocide production to correct for any variances in biocide quality.
