Rarely is there a chemical that excels in as many applications as chlorine dioxide does. This highly effective biocide can be used in almost every sector of industry and in countless different kinds of applications. While it has "chlorine" in the name, chlorine dioxide is a very different kind of chemical.
Chlorine dioxide is an extremely effective, yet selective oxidizer. It is a gaseous product that is generated onsite to treat industrial cooling water, process water, wastewater, and in odor control and cleaning applications. As 1 of 4 EPA Approved disinfectants for potable drinking water, chlorine dioxide is widely used not only in municipal drinking water applications, but in the food and beverage industry as well.
Effective over a wide pH range, chlorine dioxide can be applied in many systems where other oxidizers are hindered. Where chlorine gas and sodium hypochlorite (bleach) applications are used, chlorine dioxide often proves to be a better option. Lower corrosion rates, reduced chemical dosages, and a general improvement in biocidal performance are trademarks of chlorine dioxide applications. While chlorine dioxide may not always be the most cost effective option for every application, your Midwest Water Treatment representative can assist by preparing a comparative report and annual cost estimate.
