MB2000 Microbial Inhibitor
Antimicrobial technology for nuisance and disease causing microorganisms
in drinking and industrial process waters


The destruction of bacteria and viruses has long been a primary concern in the treatment of potable and industrial process waters world-wide. With increasingly sensitive process equipment and an increased awareness of the health impact on people with depressed immune systems, the need to control both disease causing and nuisance microorganisms in water has heightened. Further, the need to control these and other microorganisms is now being demanded in additional arenas such as air circulation systems and common household products like fabrics and plastics.

Despite the reliability and cost-effectiveness of chlorine, chemical alternatives have several disadvantages including the formation of carcinogenic by-products as well as imparting an unpleasant taste and odor at the tap. Other treatment alternatives frequently used can also be ineffective on common microbes and require pretreatment or long contact times.

Effective on a wide range of microorganisms with fast acting results, Apyron's MB™ 2000 series of product materials can meet industry and consumer needs in a cost-efficient and time-sensitive manner without producing the negative side effects associated with current methods.


To meet these challenges, Apyron has transformed two years of concentrated research into a series of products with superior antimicrobial activity. Apyron's MB 2000 line of products have been proven effective with a > 99.9% reduction of organisms such as E.coli, Klebsiella, Pseudomomas, Legionella, Salmonella, Campylobactor, MS2 virus, HPCs, and others. The antimicrobial media is manufactured as a granular or powder product and often custom designed and formulated into specific devices or end uses for a wide range of applications.
