This compound is a nonoxidizing liquid organic compound containing a solution of polyquaternary alkyl ammonium registered for use as a molluscicide in industrial once-through freshwater cooling water systems. Calgon H-130M controls zebra mussel and the Asiatic clam in veliger, juvenile, and adult forms. Because of its need for proper deactivation prior to discharge, it is sold only as part of a complete Calgon mollusk treatment application service, and is to be used only with supervision from a Calgon representative.
