Thioguard® TST - Technical Grade Magnesium Hydroxide "milk of magnesia" Mg(OH)2 The Non-Hazardous, Earth-Friendly alternative for odor and corrosion with positive plant benefits.


Long distance H2S hydrogen sulfide and sulfuric acid corrosion reduction through:

Low Solubility
0.0009 g/100ml, H2O solubility and high surface area of 1 acre per gallon provides long distance collection system treatment to and through the wastewater treatment plant

SRB Inhibition
Reduces the ability of sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB) to convert sulfates to hydrogen sulfide gas

Magnesium Polysulfide Complexation
Promotes complexation between magnesium cation and sulfides by absorbing dissolved sulfides onto the solid magnesium hydroxide particle

Henry's Law
Gas/Liquid Phase Equilibrium - resulting increase in pH keeps the the dissolved hydrogen sulfide gas in solution

Wastewater Treatment Plant Process Improvements through:

pH and Alkalinity Supplementation
0.0009 g/100ml, H2O solubility and high surface area of 1 acre per gallon provides long distance collection system treatment to and through the wastewater treatment plant

1 mg/L ammonia-N requires 5.50 mg/L NaOH caustic soda or 4.16 mg/L Mg(OH)2 for effective nitrification

With the addition of a slowly dissolving low solubility 0.0009 g/100ml, H2O particle THIOGUARD®'s use in aerobic and anaerobic biological digestors provides a steady reactor pH conducive for maximizing bacterial development

Negatively charged microbial flora are bridged by the divalent positive charge of technical grade magnesium hydroxide forming a large floc that settles readily

Biosolids Chemistry Enhancement for Land Application
Available magnesium in soil occupies the central position of the chlorophyll molecule/green pigment to utilize solar energy for the production of organic matter. Therefore, an adequate magnesium supply to plants may markedly increase photsynthetic activity of leaves. Also, magnesium is essential to energy (vitamin) transfer within plants

Increasing filter cake solids by 20-40% due to divalent cation bridging
Improvements in floc formation and thereby significantly reducing polymer demands
