MAKS 880 is super-threshold agent able to stabilize a wide range of supersaturated salt solutions.


MAKS 880 is one of the principal antiscalants used by the membrane industry. For many years MAKS 880 has found application as an antiscalant and antifoulant in membrane systems using a wide selection of brackish, high salinity, process and effluent feed-waters.


Highly effective antiscalant across a broad spectrum of waters
Minimizes scale formation and reduces frequent membrane cleaning
Reduces or replaces the need for acid
Cost effective application due to low dose rate
Compatible with all membrane types
Effective iron sequestrant
More stable and more effective than sodium hexameta-phosphate (SHMP) ➢ Enables systems to work at enhanced rates of recovery
Extensive portfolio of toxicological and environmental data available
Comply with NSF regulations up to 20 ppm


The BIMAKS computer package will define the optimum chemical requirement for any given water quality. In calculating dosage rates, membrane manufacturer’s limits, product capability, operating parameters and feed water quality are all considered.
All calculations are made on the concentrated reject brine and utilize the predicted Langelier Saturation Index, or the Stiff and Davis Index where seawater and high salinity water is in use. Calcium, barium and strontium sulfate solubility’s are also calculated as is the dose of MAKS 880.
In all reverse osmosis systems, continuous dosing to the fed water line downstream of the cartridge filters provides maximum protection. The product should be fed by a dosing pump, preferably straight from the packaging or diluted with distilled water.
The dosage rate can vary in the range of 2 – 20 ppm according to feed water quality and operating conditions.
Your BIMAKS representative will recommend the optimum dosage necessary to ensure maximum program performance according to your specific system parameters.
MAKS 880 needs to be fed continuously to the feed water. Dosing of the neat product is preferable.
MATERIALS: Storage tanks, piping and feeding equipment for MAKS 880 should be constructed of PE, PVC, PTFE or stainless steel. Direct
contact of the neat product should be avoided with aluminum, brass, carbon steel and nickel.


As a standard precaution with all chemicals we recommend the use of personal protective equipments such as goggles and rubber gloves when handling. Consult the Material Safety Data Sheet as the only official source of Environmental and Safety information.
MAKS 880 can be stored for at least 24 months from date of shipping if kept in its original, unopened container and under normal warehouse conditions. Protect from freezing and from exposure to high temperature.
MAKS 880 is available in non-returnable containers of different sizes.
