Converting/Polishing media is impregnated with patented polymeric amine and is used in high H2S conditions. Oxidizing/Polishing media is impregnated with Chlorine Dioxide and is used is low H2S conditions. Any disposal practice must be in compliance with local, state and federal laws and regulations. Contact your local or state environmental agency for specific rules.

PERSNICKETY® BRAND H2S CONVERTING/POLISHING MEDIA FOR ODOR CONTROL USED IN PEACEMAKER® SCRUBBERS AND MANHOLE INSERTS

PERSNICKETY® H2S CONVERTING MEDIA

A patented media that uses a polymeric amine, formulated for maximum removal of H2S and volatile mercaptans. The combination of multiple amine sites and organophilic properties allows for fast, efficient removal of these problematic compounds. This chemistry reacts with H2S and mercaptans to form water-soluble and non-volatile poly sulfides that are readily biodegradable. In simple words, gaseous H2S is turned into a stable, liquid polymer. All of our scrubber systems are designed to achieve a minimum H2S reduction of 99% through the Stage 1 media bed.

PERSNICKETY® POLISHING MEDIA

Activated carbon does a very efficient job of scrubbing low levels of H2S and other malodors. With 99% of the H2S and the majority of volatile mercaptans, organic amines and organic sulfurs being removed in the converter bed, the polishing bed will easily remove the remaining low levels of malodors, resulting in complete and economic odor control.

PERSNICKETY® BRAND OX-PELLETS® OXIDIZING/POLISHING MEDIA FOR MALODOR CONTROL PATENTED, BREAKTHROUGH CHEMISTRY

PERSNICKETY® OX PELLETS® provide demand dependent oxidizing properties and sustained release polishing properties, simultaneously. The result is safe, extremely effective, broad-spectrum malodor control. Each technology has a critical role to play.

Oxidizing – Chlorine Dioxide Technology

Chlorine dioxide (ClO2)is an extremely powerful oxidizing agent. For example, one pound of chlorine dioxide is equivalent in oxidation power to 3.8 pounds of potassium permanganate. Because chlorine dioxide reacts selectively and primarily with only the most offensive odor producing compounds (hydrogen sulfide [H2S], organic sulfurs, organic amines, petroleum distilates), PERSNICKETY® OX PELLETS® will normally provide a much longer service life than competitive products such as activated carbon. Similarly, chlorine dioxide will remain intact longer than chlorine, hypochlorite, peroxide and permanganate. Unwanted reactions do not occur. Power is not needlessly spent. Chlorine dioxide remains available and ready on demand.

In contrast to chlorine and hypochlorite, chlorine dioxide does not react with ammonia and is not a chlorinating agent. It typically reacts with organics as an oxidant with no Trihalomethanes (THMs) or chlorinated by-products formed. Hydrogen sulfide is rapidly oxidized to inorganic sulfate; whereas organic sulfides react with chlorine dioxide to form sulfonyl compounds and oxygen containing by-products, thus effectively eliminating many odors. When sufficient chlorine dioxide is used to fully oxidize phenol, the primary products are converted to respective carboxylic acids. Primary and secondary amines react very slowly or not at all with chlorine dioxide, whereas chlorine dioxide will rapidly oxidize tertiary amines producing a secondary amine and an aldehyde. Chlorine dioxide has relatively low oxidizing activity toward olefins. Alcohols and carboxyl compounds react more slowly to produce carboxylic acids. The breaking of carbon – carbon bonds is generally not extensive in most reactions.

Polishing – Countervailant® Technology

This technology protects against the escape of malodors which can not be oxidized or readily oxidized. It functions synergistically with the technology to which it is wed. Countervailant® technology is highly specialized, complex and broadly useful chemistry. It incorporates neutralization technology, but expands considerably beyond it. Polymeric adsorption is a facet. This involves the building up of malodor molecules via electrostatic attractions and Van der Waals forces so that they are not recognized as malodors. The process of esterification is also incorporated. Acids and alcohols react to form esters. These esters normally have a pleasant scent. Countervailant® technology is effective in dealing with malodors in both liquid and gaseous phases.

HEALTH, SAFETY AND DISPOSAL

Care must be taken not to create even larger, more serious problems in the pursuit of malodor solutions. Many products in commercial use are toxic, create toxic by-products; are explosive, flammable, corrosive, damaging to the air, plants and animals and difficult to dispose of. Disposal is not a problem with PERSNICKETY® OX PELLETS®. We will do it for you. Simply retain the original shipping containers. When the product is spent, reload them and return them to us, freight pre-paid. We will recycle or dispose of, as necessary.

All chemical products should be handled with care (Request to review PERSNICKETY® Oxidizing Media SDS).

Here are a few key points of interest concerning chlorine dioxide:

  • Chlorine dioxide is approved by the EPA for use as a primary disinfectant in drinking water. It has shown no adverse effects to human health after several decades of use.
  • The proprietary chlorine dioxide in PERSNICKETY® OX PELLETS® and its precursors are EPA, FDA and USDA approved for sanitation uses in food and dairy plants.
  • Does not react with water to form hypochlorus and hydrochloric acid, as does chlorine gas.

The Countervailant® portion of PERSNICKETY® OX PELLETS®:

  • Contains only those raw materials listed in the EPA TSCA Chemical Substances Inventory and in the European Economic Community Inventory of Chemical Substances.
  • Is non-explosive and non-flammable. Contains only non-reactive, stable materials.

WARNING: DO NOT ADD ACIDS OR ANY CHEMICALS TO PERSNICKETY® OX PELLETS® OTHER THAN THOSE RECOMMENDED BY THE MANUFACTURER. THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR DANGEROUS REACTIONS WITH ClO2.
