Home Our Business Bactebrom 


Bactebrom is an aqueous solution consisting of a mixture of Urea and HBr. The product is a highly effective biofilm treatment solution for large pipelines situated mainly in cooling towers, and paper mills.

Bactebrom is a mild oxidizer that is suitable for highly loaded systems (COD and organics) and a wide pH range.

The active biocide is created in-situ by mixing Bactebrom® and NaOCl in water-diluted conditions.

Instructions for use in Pulp & Paper and Industrial Cooling Systems’ applications:

Initial Dosage: In case of obvious contamination, add, via the dedicated dosing unit, enough biocide in order to reach 2.0 – 10.0 ppm residual, expressed as Total Chlorine. A good biocide solution is usually obtained by mixing 1.0 liters of Sodium Hypochlorite (typically 12.5 % w/v) with 0.32 liters of Bactebrom solution.

Maintenance dosage: When the situation is under control, add enough biocide solution in order to maintain a residual of 0.5 – 5.0 ppm, expressed as Total Chlorine.

Packaging: Available in standard Intermediate Bulk Containers, IBCs
