MEA Triazine (Hexahydro-1,3,5-tris(hydroxyethyl)-s-triazine)


MEA triazine is a reliable storage tank-side antimicrobial chemical. People usually put it directly into the sump of a badly fouled, high-smell system. It works well against both gram-positive and also gram-negative microorganisms.

The effectiveness of MEA triazine is not influenced by either the water hardness or various other chemicals. This micro biocide can also boost the efficiency of the liquid. As well as additionally manages fungal development and also prevents the growth of germs.

IRO supplies the MEA triazine similar chemical. The main ingredient is Hexahydro-1,3,5-tris(hydroxyethyl)-s-triazine.

Structure Formula:



MEA triazine is mainly used as a hydrogen sulfide scavenger and anti-mildew agent.

As a hydrogen sulfide scavenger, MEA triazine mainly removes the H2S generated from exploiting crude oil and natural gas. Thus guaranteeing health in the production field. And also reducing the H2S corrosion to equipment.

By injecting it into the desulfuration process. MEA triazine has the following advantages in low H2S situations.

  • Convenient operation.
  • Low cost.
  • Less operation area.

It is very suitable for offshore and onshore oilfields with stricter requirements in space and investment.

As an anti-mildew agent. Hexahydro-1,3,5-tris(hydroxyethyl)-s-triazine is the main ingredient of MEA triazine and sym-triazine. It is widely used in metal processing (cutting and grinding fluid), papermaking (paper coating), painting and coating, electroplating, and leather (lustering agent).

MEA triazine is directly input into the desulfurization process as a hydrogen sulfide scavenger. For high-sulfur crude, the recommended dosage is 3~5‰.

As an anti-mildew agent, the dosage depends on the situation with the following reference:

IndustryRecommended Dosage
Oil industry0.01~0.05%
Metal Processing0.15~0.3%
Painting and Coating0.2%

Packing and storage:

200L plastic drum, 1000L IBC tote.

200L plastic drum 1000L IBC

Non-hazard Chemical. Shelf life is two years from the date of manufacture.

Health and Safety:

Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing. Avoid breathing vapor or mist. Wash your hand thoroughly after handling. Keep the container tightly closed. Use only with adequate ventilation.

Store away from incompatible substances in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Prolonged contact with brass, copper, or aluminum piping, containers, or equipment should be avoided to prevent possible corrosive effects on these metals.
