History Of Carus

Carus was founded in 1915 by Dr. Edward Hegeler Carus, who first produced permanganate while at the University of Wisconsin. When World War I in Europe threatened supplies of potassium permanganate in the United States, Carus saw an opportunity. Today, Carus Corporation’s President and CEO, Inga Carus represents the third generation of the Carus family to manage the corporation.

During its more than 90-year history, Carus’ ongoing reliance on research and development, as well as its emphasis on technical support and customer service has enabled the company to become the world leader in permanganate, manganese, oxidation, catalyst and blended phosphate technologies.

Today Carus Corporation manufactures a range of products for the municipal and industrial markets with a majority used in environmental applications. Products include CAIROX® and AQUOX® potassium permanganates, RemOx® ISCO reagents, CARULITE® catalysts, AQUA MAG® blended phosphates, CARUSOL® liquid permanganate and LIQUOX® sodium permanganate.

Carus Corporation has expanded from its single location in LaSalle, Illinois, USA, to become a global corporation with locations in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Carus plans to further expand as we look for new opportunities to develop new and unique products for the environmental markets.

Responsible Care

As part of our continuing tradition of more than 90 years of environmentally responsible activities, Carus Corporation is a committed participant in the American Chemistry Council’s (ACC) Responsible Care® initiative. Responsible Care helps chemical companies go above and beyond government requirements. In the U.S., Responsible Care companies have reduced environmental releases by 78% and achieved an employee safety record that is more than five times safer than the average of the rest of the U.S. manufacturing sector. Responsible Care companies openly communicate their results to the public, making available the most performance information of any private sector industry group.

Responsible Care is more than a set of principles and declarations. It is implementing world-class management systems, verified through independent auditors; tracking performance through established environment, health, safety and security measures; and extending these best practices to business partners through the industry supply chain. Security has always been a top priority for the U.S. chemical industry, and ACC member companies have taken the lead in securing their facilities. Without waiting for government direction, ACC members adopted the Responsible Care Security Code, an aggressive plan to enhance security of our facilities, our communities, and our products.

Another key part of the Responsible Care management system (RCMS) process is mandatory certification by an independent, accredited auditor. Carus Corporation and other companies who have achieved this certification develop, document, and implement a policy that establishes a company’s framework of goals and objectives. Inherent in this framework is a commitment to continuous improvement that is measurable and documented. RCMS offers an integrated, structured approach to drive results in seven key areas:

  • community awareness and emergency response,
  • security,
  • distribution,
  • employee health and safety,
  • pollution prevention,
  • process safety, and
  • product stewardship.

This approach is taking America’s leading chemical companies above and beyond their prior accomplishments to achieve even higher standards of performance and greater value for their businesses. Certification must be renewed every three years.

In addition, Carus Corporation has written a Product Safety Bulletin to help educate customers, community members, and employees on general uses of permanganate products.

FEATURED PRODUCTS

OXIDANTS

Potassium permanganate (KMnO4) is a strong oxidizing agent that was originally discovered in 1659. Carus Corporation has been producing permanganate since 1915. As an oxidizing agent it has the ability to add oxygen, remove hydrogen or remove electrons from an element or compound. Potassium permanganate is made up of 1 manganese atom surrounded by 4 oxygen atoms. The molecular weight of permanganate is 158.04 g/mol.

CARUSOL liquid permanganate

CARUSOL® liquid permanganate is an effective oxidant recommended for potable drinking water applications that require a concentrated permanganate solution. Applications include  iron removal, manganese removal, mercaptan odor control, taste and odor control, disinfection by-product reduction, color reduction, and radium reduction.

FEATURED APPLICATIONS

Hydrogen sulfide removal in sludge management

In the treatment of sanitary sewage, bio-solids are separated from the liquid. These bio-solids are concentrated and dewatered using filter presses, centrifuges, or other devices. Hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans are released during the dewatering operation.  Carus permanganates react quickly and produce immediate results for hydrogen sulfide removal in order to provide a safe, odor free environment and minimize corrosion due to sulfides.

Purifications solutions for air and purification industry

Carus Corporation is the manufacturer of a series of manganese based catalysts, called CARULITE® catalysts. These Hopcalite type catalysts are used for breathable air purification, emission air purification, and process air purification.

FEATURED SERVICES

RemOx S ISCO reagent - Equipment for permanganate dissolution and dosage

Carus Corporation can provide permanganate dissolution and dosage equipment for water treatment and remediation. Standard and customized equipment is available. Carus state of the art knowledge is available for our clients needs.

CARUTEST Analyzer

The CARUTEST™ Analyzer is designed to continuously analyze residual levels of CAIROX® potassium permanganate and CARUSOL® liquid permanganate in drinking water.
