ANTIMICROBIAL 7287 is used as a RO membrane cleaning chemical to eliminate biological fouling in RO membranes and other pressure-driven membrane systems for industrial water production.
The Antimicrobial 7287 microbiocide formulation is completely miscible with water upon dispersion at end use levels in the RO feed water system. 
The DBNPA molecule will function immediately upon introduction into the feed water; the rate of this activity is not affected by pH, and antimicrobial control is rapidly achieved if properly dosed.
When added to an RO system, DBNPA is easily rejected by the thin-film composite membrane layer and shows excellent compatibility with all materials of construction of the RO membrane module.

To Control Coliform and Other Bacteria in Publicly-Owned Treatment Works; 
controls bacteria, fungi, and yeasts in paper mills, metalworking fluids containing water, and enhanced oil recovery systems; 
controls bacteria, fungi, and algae in industrial recirculating water cooling towers, once-through fresh and sea water industrial cooling water systems, and reverse osmosis systems; 
controls slimeforming bacteria and fungi in air-washer systems. 

DOW Antimicrobial 7287 and DOW Antimicrobial 8536 are formulations containing 20% and 5%, respectively, of the active ingredient 2,2-dibromo-3-nitrilopropionamide, commonly referred to as DBNPA. 
Both products provide broad-spectrum control of bacteria, fungi, yeast, cyanobacteria (blue- green algae) and the true algae.
DOW Antimicrobial 7287 and DOW Antimicrobial 8536 are fast-acting biocides.
Equally important, DOW Antimicrobial 7287 and DOW Antimicrobial 8536 decompose rapidly in aquatic environments, and are environmentally safe.

DOW Antimicrobial 7287 and DOW Antimicrobial 8536 are effective at low con- centrations and are completely compatible with standard chlorine treatment, providing synergistic control of microorganisms.
Because DOW Antimicrobial 7287 and DOW Antimicrobial 8536 are characterized by extremely rapid kill, proliferating microbes and their attendant slime problems are quickly reduced. 
Systems run better, with a higher efficiency, and at a lower cost. 
In fact, when an effective non-oxidizing biocide is required, none can match the total performance package offered by DOWAntimicrobial 7287 and DOW Antimicrobial 8536. 
ANTIMICROBIAL 7287 is fast action gives results quickly. 

antimicrobial product applications: 
-Enhanced oil recovery systems
-Pulp & paper mills
-Cooling systems like recirculating cooling towers
-Heat exchangers
-Industrial water-purification like reverse osmosis (RO) 
-Evaporative condensers 
-Sewage systems

What happens when you treat systems with DOW Antimicrobials 7287 and 8536?
DOW Antimicrobials 7287 and 8536 are completely miscible with water and easily dispersed upon introduction into your system.
Microorganisms that come into contact with these antimicrobials are rapidly killed by a mechanism that appears to involve reaction with the protein fraction of the cell membrane and inactivation of enzyme systems. 
The vast majority of microorganisms are killed within five to ten minutes.
