FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What are antiscalant chemicals ?  

Antiscalants are a family of chemicals designed to inhibit the formation and precipitation of crystallized mineral salts that form scale.
Antiscalant chemicals are used to prevent the scaling & fouling of the RO membranes. Scale may consist of mineral fouling such as calcium sulfate, calcium carbonate, barium sulfate, silica, calcium fluoride, and strontium sulfate.  GRAMICID-102 Antiscalant is useful for iron & silica rich feed water, which helps to prevent iron fouling in the R.O membrane.

What is an Industrial Descaler ?

An industrial descaler is typically a chemical substance used to remove or dissolve calcium carbonate, limescale, rust and other mineral deposits from various equipment that comes into contact with water forming deposits. Our product – Gramicid-17 is a versatile descaling agent which is safer in terms of equipment corrosion, suitable for all metals and safety of personnel.

What is a descaling chemical ?

A descaling agent or chemical descaler is a liquid or powder chemical substance used to remove limescale from metal surfaces in contact with hot water, such as in boilers, water heaters, and kettles. Limescale is either white or brown in colour due to the presence of iron compounds.

What is the pH of antiscalants ?

The Ph of Antiscalant can range from being acidic around 2 to basic around 12-13.

How do you calculate the dosing of RO Antiscalant ?

The recommended dosage would be 2-5 ppm of Gramicid-101 or Gramicid-102 depending on the quality of water.

What is RO Antiscalant ? What is the use of Antiscalant ?

Antiscalant is a pretreatment water additive for reverse osmosis system that is highly effective in preventing the membranes from scaling. The delay allows the water to pass through the membrane before any chemical reaction, in which scale can form, occurs.

How do you sanitize RO Membrane with chemicals ? 

Please refer this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euZYUetLsIs 

How do you clean RO membranes ? 

Alkaline RO Membrane Cleaner Gramicid-121 and with Acidic RO Membrane Cleaner Gramicid-122.

How to add minerals with distilled water to make it drinkable ? 

Distilled water contains no minerals and trace elements. One way to increase its mineral content is to mix it with FSSAI / Food Grade Calcium Chloride, Magenesium Sulphate, Potassium Bicarbonate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Carbonate.

Is Mineral Water Healthier Than Regular Bottled Water ? 

Main sources of Mineral Water are springs and natural underground reservoirs. Mineral Water can be high in several essential minerals, including calcium, magnesium, and sodium. Therefore, drinking mineral water may offer some health benefits.

What is the difference between Fumigation and Fogging ? 

The fumigation process involves spraying BKC, formaldehyde and potassium permanganate based disinfectants form while fogging uses the mixture of hydrogen peroxide and silver ion solution to control the contamination. GRAMICID-Secure which contains Hydrogen peroxide 10% and 100 ppm silver is commonly used for Fogging.

Which are specialty chemicals ? 

Some of the categories of speciality chemicals are adhesives, agrichemicals, cleaning materials, colors, cosmetic additives, construction chemicals, elastomers, flavors, food additives, fragrances, industrial gases, lubricants, paints, polymers, surfactants, and textile auxiliaries.

Can Nano Silver Hydrogen Peroxide be used in the Agriculture Industry ?  

Silver Hydrogen Peroxide is an eco-friendly disinfectant that can be used universally. The silver ( Ag ) functions both as a stabilizer and activator, keeping the peroxide ions stable. The resultant silver  hydrogen peroxide is both safe and nontoxic for human beings and surroundings. This synergy of hydrogen peroxide and silver provides high efficacy in killing microorganisms in all possible media applications of air, water, surface, and soil. It proves to be a powerful antibacterial, fungicide, virucide, amoebicide, algaecide that chips away at a wide range of microorganisms. This combination of hydrogen peroxide and silver is about twenty times more powerful than hydrogen peroxide alone.

We have two AGRICULTURE CHEMICALS products – GRAMICID-AGRO and GRAMICID-FLORA which are used for both pre-harvest and post-harvest preservation.

What are Nano Silver Hydrogen Peroxide uses ?  

The combination of hydrogen peroxide and silver provides high efficacy in killing microorganisms in all possible media applications of air, water, surface, and soil. It proves to be a powerful antibacterial, fungicide, virucide, amoebicide, algaecide that chips away at a wide range of microorganisms. Visit for more details our product – Silver Hydrogen Peroxide Disinfectant

Silver Hydrogen Peroxide is used in disinfection ex-water disinfection, soil disinfection etc. It is also in fumigation, sterilization, surface sanitation etc.

Our Brand – GRAMICID has a very wide range of applications and can be used wherever halogens, aldehydes, phenols, quats are being used.
GRAMICID is FDA APPROVED and GMP CERTIFIED PRODUCT.

What is Silver Hydrogen Peroxide price in India ?  

Silver Hydrogen Peroxide sale starts from Rs 340 kilogram depending on the concentration of the product – Hydrogen Peroxide Disinfectant, Nano Silver Hydrogen Peroxide.

Are there any side effects of Silver hydrogen peroxide disinfectant ?

To avoid any side effects, the product is to be used as per the instructions in MSDS.

Side effects : Redness, stinging, or irritation at the application site may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, contact your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

What are the disadvantages of chlorine dioxide as a disinfectant ?

Chlorine dioxide decomposes when it comes in contact with sunlight hence it is a very unstable substance. Disadvantage is that during chlorine dioxide production processes, large amounts of chlorine are formed. Free chlorine reacts with organic matter to form halogenated disinfection byproducts. Gramicid Eco-Friendly Disinfectant is the ideal substitute.

How does chlorine damage RO Membranes ?

In Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems, membranes are easily damaged by chlorine in the feed water. Chlorine damage to the membrane can lead to lower salt rejection and poor-quality permeate, which in turn could result in costly membrane replacement and down-time.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of chlorine sanitizer ?

Chlorine is used to disinfect water and to clean swimming pools. It is used regularly in swimming pools and helps clean all the germs out in the water.

Disadvantages – Chlorine can be a very dangerous poison it can cause throat swelling and water filling in the lungs. GRAMICID-SWIM – our product is effective alternative to traditional gas chlorine.

What are corrosion inhibitors ?

Aluminum Oxide, Copper Carbonate, Titanium Oxide, and Chromium Oxide, can act as protective coatings, preventing metal corrosion. Inhibitors vary by base metal (for example, zinc is a corrosion inhibitor for copper and aluminum).

What are the types of Corrosion Inhibitors ?

  • Cathodic Inhibitor
  • Anodic Inhibitor
  • Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor
  • Mixed Inhibitors

What is the most common Corrosion Inhibitor ?

The most common inhibitors of this category are the Silicates and the Phosphates. Such inhibitors will have the advantage that they control both the cathodic and anodic corrosion reactions. Gramicid-25 is one such example of Corrosion Inhibitor.

What is the use of corrosion inhibiting chemicals ?

A corrosion inhibitor is a chemical compound that, when added to a liquid or gas, decreases the corrosion rate of a material, typically a metal or an alloy, that comes into contact with the fluid. The effectiveness of a corrosion inhibitor depends on fluid composition, quantity of water, and flow regime.

Our Boiler Chemical Product – GRAMICID-22 depends on the latest technology which is advanced, Filming Amine-Based 3 in 1 Boiler Chemical that works as a Sludge Conditioner; Scale Inhibitor and Oxygen Scavenger and also maintains the alkalinity of water.
