A SAFER, MORE COST-EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO BULK
HYDRATED LIME, QUICKLIME OR SODA ASH

THIOGUARD OX is a proven, premium quality, technical-grade magnesium oxide, manufactured through a proprietary process for application in municipal water and wastewater treatment. THIOGUARD OX is mined and processed exclusively by Premier Magnesia, LLC in the USA.

NO CAPITAL EXPENDITURES NECESSARY
Your existing storage and feed system can be used to deliver THIOGUARD OX without costly modifications. You can begin reaping the benefits of THIOGUARD OX without up-front costs.

SUPERIOR HANDLING
THIOGUARD OX is manufactured to an exacting particle size and specific
surface area to provide the highest reactivity, and superior handling.
This provides consistent performance, LESS CAKING AND “CLUMPING”,
and better dispersion, which is critical to treatment plant operations, while reducing sludge generation.

 


 


 

POUND FOR POUND THIOGUARD OX
DELIVERS MORE ALKALINITY
THIOGUARD OX
has the highest available surface area and reactivity as a result of Premier’s proprietary manufacturing process. Wastewater treatment is performed in a sensitive biological environment wherein operation is performed at near-neutral or slightly alkaline conditions, requiring the highest reactive grade magnesium oxide available. Less reactive grades are incapable of sufficiently neutralizing acid generated in these environments, and will pass through the system unused or accumulate as sludge. THIOGUARD OX results in improved plant performance and reduced operating costs.

MULTIPLE BENEFITS TOTAL SYSTEM TREATMENT
THIOGUARD OX
is available at distribution terminals throughout the USA, and delivers Total System Treatment with multiple additional benefits. When compared to quicklime, there is no “slaking” required. THIOGUARD OX is the practical choice that provides a safer, more cost-effective alternative.

LIME SOFTENING / SLUDGE GENERATION
Lime produces calcium carbonate in wastewater, which acts as a coagulant for hardness and particulate matter. Lime may potentially increase the volume of waste sludge up to 50 percent.

THIOGUARD OX IS CLEARLY SUPERIOR TO HYDRATED LIME, QUICKLIME AND SODA ASH
THIOGUARD OX, hydrated lime, quicklime, and soda ash each have different physical and chemical properties that affect how each reacts with the systems to which they are added.
