THPS

THPS (THPS tetrakis(hydroxymethyl) phosphonium sulphate) is a broad-spectrum biocide developed to inhibit the growth of algae, bacteria, yeasts and fungi in process waters used in various industrial applications. It is effective in both acid and alkaline environments. It is especially effective against sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) which are particularly troublesome in enhanced oil recovery operations, such as injection water treatment, top-side systems, pipeline protection and storage. Other applications include industrial water treatment (for recirculating cooling water) and a paper industry biocide.  The THPS test kit is a titration based procedure for determination of active THPS in these and other water based systems.
