Chlorine Dioxide

Chlorine Dioxide is a chemical which is extremely effective as both a disinfectant and as an oxidant in water treatment. It does not react with organic materials or with most treatment chemicals (corrosion and scale inhibitors), present in cooling water systems.

The disinfectant properties of this chemical are the reason it is used in many different roles and systems. Chlorine Dioxide has been approved by the drinking water inspectorate for use in drinking water applications. It is also used within cooling water process systems.

This treatment has the unique ability to penetrate biofilm, and quickly kills bacteria from the outside in. Proper dosing ensures that no bacteria (including Legionella), can survive in the treated water system.
