Improper industrial plant hygiene can result in microbial contamination of raw materials, recycled water, and final products that can lead to equipment failure and decreased productivity. Our technical experts can help determine the cause of contamination with microbial audits of manufacturing facilities. These audits, coupled with industrial hygiene good practices, will help decrease costly shutdowns and production delays.

Our biocide portfolio includes an industrial hygiene product DOWICIL™ QK-20 Antimicrobial (BIOBAN™ QK-20 Antimicrobial*) which offers broad spectrum activity against bacteria, fungi, and algae. Fast-acting and chemically compatible (at use levels) with raw materials, recycled water, and final products, DOWICIL™ QK-20 (BIOBAN™ QK-20*), can help increase productivity to eliminate delays and shutdowns.
