Organic debris such as bacteria is a common contaminant of the source water required for hydraulic fracturing. These contaminants can cause problems such as the degradation of equipment, production of toxic gasses, and reduce the efficiency of the well bore. Our chemical oxidizers are able to penetrate microorganism protective layers to effectively neutralize water contaminations.

Ace Fluid Solutions has the ability to source any biocide to fit your company’s needs. Though we have a vast amount of resources, the biocides listed below are the most popular among our clients.

Tetrakis(hydroxymethyl) phosphonium sulfate (THPS) is a type of environmental-friendly water treatment micro biocide. It can easily withhold sulfate-reducing microorganisms and most aerobic bacteria, such as microorganisms that form biofilm inside frac completion operations, the enhanced oil process of recovery, manufacturing, and other supporting systems. i.e., water injection equipment, well water disposal facilities, water holding tanks, recirculating water treatment systems, as well as pipelines.


Tributyl tetradecyl phosphonium chloride (TTPC) is a biocide used in hydraulic fracturing fluids to minimize bacterial contamination. This biocide is a blend of two non-oxidizing biocides that deliver where many cannot in terms of effective kill, safe handling, and cost-efficiency.
