EN Rx Reagent activated by Synergist has remarkable qualities outcompeting most of the current market products.
It is one of a kind in the market and its unique qualities are preferred by our many clients.
For 20 years we have been doing things different. Our reagent has long been the longest lasting most potent product on the market, and this allowed us to treat the sites differently. To explain all of the benefits we would need to bore you with a book of details, so let’s just summarize it for you to show you how it’s superior.
Why change a great thing? For consistent injection, control and power, using EN Rx Reagent is too good to bother changing, for 20 years now.
The stability is the most unique feature. How does it simultaneously activate and stabilize? Well, that’s the secret. But check out this graph that shows both features: 1,4 Dioxane is oxidized slowly over 90 days, showing the potential to oxidize a difficult compound, but 90 days of reactivity showing the stability.
You made it this far and believe it’s easy to use and very safe, but does it work? Let’s look at the comparative efficacy and cost. (Spoiler Alert, EN Rx Reagent is less expensive!)
To do this we must first look at the stoichiometry of the reactions and evaluate the required dosages for equivalent impact on the contaminants of concern. In this case we will use benzene (C6H6) as a common representative contaminant. Therefore:
For Sodium Persulfate: Need 15 Moles of oxidant to destroy 1 Mole of benzene.
15 Na2S2O8 + 1 C6H6🡪 6 CO2 + 3 H2O + 30 Na + 30 SO4: Note undesirable mineral residues.
For EN Rx Reagent: Need 15 Moles of oxidant to destroy 1 Mole of benzene.
15 H2O2 + 1 C6H6🡪 6 CO2 + 18 H2O: Note no mineral residues.

In summary, if we were to compare the total mass delivered to the site EN Rx Reagent would be as effective as 7.51 X sodium persulfate on a weight basis. This has huge implications not only in direct cost, but also for shipping and application times. Further, with a highly stabilized hydrogen peroxide, other benefits include reduced infrastructure requirements and safety factors given the relative behavior of each oxidant.
Back on the economics. The rough bulk price for EN Rx Reagent is $4.77 per lb. For persulfate, which as noted is variable, we will use $1.60 a pound, including the cost of an iron salt activator. The cost differences is 2.98 X. Taking this ratio and factoring the efficiency calculation we can see the true comparative values of these products.
If we convert the efficiency ratios to cost differences, we can see the following in Table 2.
