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 supplys 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 hydrogen sulfide scavenger and anti-mildew agent.

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

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

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

It is vert suitable for offshore and onshore oilfield with a stricter requirements in space and investment.

As 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).


AppearanceColorless or light yellow transparent liquid
Active acid (by titration), %74~78
Refractive Index1.47~1.49
pH (as it)9.0~12.0

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

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

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