Thanks to its particular combination of properties, chlorine dioxide is widely recognized as an outstanding biocide and disinfectant for a wide range of applications.
Chlorine dioxide is used to provide you with the simplest, safest, and most cost-effective way to treat your water.
Because of its unusual combination of properties, Chlorine Dioxide has been named the perfect biocide.
Potency - At low dosages, it is extremely effective. It has been shown that preserving a constant free residual of just 0.1-0.5 mg / l of ClO2 in a water source is efficient in regulating a wide variety of dangerous bacteria and problematic microbes.
Fast - Where it can take several hours or even days for most microbiocides to function. Chlorine acts in a matter of seconds.
Ph Sensitivity - ClO2 is an incredibly effective biocide between pH 4 and 10, unlike chlorine and bromine, which both are far less effective as the pH of water increases.
Effective against biofilms - Because chlorine dioxide is a readily soluble gas that dissolves in water without forming ionic species, biofilms that are otherwise comparatively resistant to other disinfectants and biocides, such as chlorine, are capable of permeating and penetrating. This makes ClO2 especially effective in managing and eliminating pseudomonas and other slime-forming bacteria in environments such as cooling towers, heat exchangers, spa pools/baths and hot tubs that can cause significant problems.
Legionella - Chlorine dioxide is a highly effective disinfectant that is used to control legionella and to suppress the microbial biofilms in which it appears to develop. It is known as an important biocide and disinfectant to reduce the risk of hot and cold household water systems, cooling water systems, spa rooms, hot tubs, and leisure pools associated with Legionnaires ' Disease.
Selectivity - Although chlorine dioxide is an incredibly strong oxidant, it has a lower reduction potential than most other oxidizing biocides and disinfectants that are widely used. This lower redox ability means that, without reacting with other pollutants, it is able to destroy the bacteria, often resulting in even lower dosage rates that will make it the cheaper option.
