For Use in Industrial Water Treatment, Papermaking and Gas and Oilfield Systems

Chemical Name: Glutaraldehyde

CAS Number: 111-30-8


Glutaraldehyde 50% Water Treatment Microbiocide is a high performing microbicide. It is effective against the bacteria and fungi present in papermaking systems and useful in preventing slime formation in all areas of the papermaking process. It is especially effective in controlling bacterial growth in aqueous pigments and filler slurries.

Applications/Directions for Use

Water Flood Injection Water

Glutaraldehyde 50% exhibits excellent stability in oilfield injection waters, which ensures that its antimicrobial activity will not be diminished in long pipelines. Hard waters or brines do not adversely affect its biocidal efficacy, and Glutaraldehyde 50% is non-ionic so it won’t interfere with the action of demulsifiers, corrosion inhibitors, or surfactants Glutaraldehyde 50%water treatment microbiocides are typically slug dosed into the injection water on a daily or weekly basis at 50 to 2500 ppm active for up to 4 hours, although the exact treatment regimen will depend on the condition of the system, the amount of water being treated, etc.

Drilling, Completion, Workover, and Fracturing Fluids

Glutaraldehyde functions as a biocide over a broad pH range and its efficacy is much faster at neutral to alkaline pH’s than at acidic pH’s. Therefore, Glutaraldehyde 50% water treatment microbiocide products are excellent choices for use in preserving drilling muds and other oilfield fluids that are typically alkaline in pH. The combination of rapid alkaline efficacy at the typical use rates of 25 to 500 ppm as active, and proven stability and effectiveness in high salinity matrices ensures microbial protection of these important fluids.
