MAKS 400P
REVERSE OSMOSIS ANTISCALANT
PRODUCT BENEFITS
Highly effective antiscalant across a broad spectrum of waters
Minimizes scaling and reduces the frequency of membrane cleaning
Will reduce, and usually replace the need for acid addition
Low dose rate gives a cost effective application
Compatible with all membrane types
Effective iron sequestrant
More stable and more effective than sodium hexameta-phosphate (SHMP)
Enables systems to work at enhanced rates of recovery
Extensive portfolio of toxicological and environmental data available
This product has received NSF/International certification under ANSI/NSF Standard 60 in the reverse osmosis
antiscalant category. The official name is "Miscellaneous Water Supply Products." Maximum product application dosage
is: 10 mg/l
.
PRINCIPAL USES
MAKS 400P is one of the principal antiscalants used by the membrane industry. For many years MAKS 400P has found application as an
antiscalant and antifoulant in membrane systems using a wide selection of brackish, high salinity, process and effluent feed-waters.
.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
MAKS 400P is super-threshold agent able to stabilize a wide range of supersaturated salt solutions
.
DOSAGE AND APPLICATION
The BIMAKS computer package will define the optimum chemical requirement for any given water quality. In calculating dosage rates,
membrane manufacturer’s limits, product capability, operating parameters and feed water quality are all considered.
All calculations are made on the concentrated reject brine and utilize the predicted Langelier Saturation Index, or the Stiff and Davis
Index where seawater and high salinity water is in use. Calcium, barium and strontium sulfate solubility’s are also calculated as is the
dose of MAKS 400P.
In all reverse osmosis systems, continuous dosing to the fed water line downstream of the cartridge filters provides maximum
protection. The product should be fed by a dosing pump, preferably straight from the packaging or diluted with distilled water.
The dosage rate can vary in the range of 1 - 10 ppm according to feed water quality and operating conditions.
Your BIMAKS representative will recommend the optimum dosage necessary to ensure maximum program performance according to
your specific system parameters.
MAKS 400P needs to be fed continuously to the feed water. Dosing of the neat product is preferable.
MATERIALS: Storage tanks, piping and feeding equipment for MAKS 400P should be constructed of PE, PVC, PTFE or stainless steel.
Direct contact of the neat product should be avoided with aluminum, brass, carbon steel and nickel
.
HANDLING-STORAGE-SHIPPING
As a standard precaution with all chemicals we recommend the use of protective equipment such as goggles and rubber gloves when
handling. Consult the Product Material Safety Data Sheet as the only official source of Environmental and Safety information.
The product can be stored for more than 24 months from date of shipping if kept in its original unopened containers and under normal
warehouse conditions. Protect from freezing and from exposure to high temperature.
MAKS 400P is available in non-returnable 25 kg pails or containers of different sizes.
