Disinfection of drinking water means the effective deactivation or killing of microorganisms that may be present in water. Disinfection of drinking water is essential to ensure our water is safe to and free from harmful bacteria even after it has been stored or transferred through a network of pipes before reaching the consumer. The use of chlorine based compounds is the most widely used technology around the world as it effectively kills the majority of harmful microorganisms and leaves a long-lasting residual...
Chlorine dioxide is an effective tool for the treatment of potable water. It is a powerful disinfectant that nicely balances purification performance against disinfection by product formation. It is one of four EPA approved disinfectants for drinking water with CT values second only to ozone in biocidal efficacy but without the ozonation by-products or high capital expense.
Chlorine dioxide is used as a biocide in many industrial water treatment applications including cooling towers, process water and mill water. Its selective oxidative properties usually results in lower dosages of ClO2 while also achieving improved microbial performance.
Chlorine dioxide is a well-known disinfectant for drinking water with many advantages over chlorination. Today there are estimated to be over 900 public water systems using chlorine dioxide for water disinfection world-wide. Also in Australia it is approved for a wide range of uses. However, the acceptance of chlorine dioxide in Australia as a disinfecting agent for drinking water has been hampered by the crude methods available for generating chlorine dioxide – methods that require relatively complex...
The luxurious pool experience: Say goodbye to chlorine odors, irritated eyes, hair damage and faded swimsuits caused by excessive disinfection by-products and over chlorination. Common salt and electricity generate a consistent and proper amount of pure chlorine solution in a safe, simple and cost effective way to disinfect pools. We are committed to improving your recreational water quality, while using a green, recyclable treatment process.
The purpose of de-chlorination is the removal of free chlorine and combined chlorine compounds from potable water, as supplied by municipal water supplies. Chlorine will oxidize the surface of thin film composite polyamide membranes, causing the membrane to lose its ability to repel or reject salts. As a result, the membranes used in Reverse Osmosis (RO) or Electro-deionisation (EDI) systems will exhibit shorter lifetimes when exposed to chlorine in the water they are treating and membrane manufacturers will...
In the normal course of operation, hospitals generate a variety of waste products which are not suitable for normal disposal. While some or most hospital waste may be harmless, it is difficult to distinguish such harmless waste from infectious waste. As a result, all of the waste from a hospital must be treated as if it is harmful.
Irrigation Systems: A common problem encountered in all irrigation systems is growth of micro-organisms in the irrigation pipes causing poor flow, blockages and the potential for the spread of disease-causing organisms throughout the irrigated area, particularly fungal diseases. The micro-organisms flourishing in irrigation pipes include bacteria and fungi and, if sufficient light is present, algae. Irrigation pipes provide an ideal environment for the establishment of biofilm on the inside of the pipes.
Chlorine dioxide is a significant product in the control of algae, planktonic and sessile bacteria, bio-film and scale in power plants, cooling towers, loops and cooling systems. CleanOxide helps maintain the efficiency of heat exchanger surfaces, reservoir intakes and ancillary equipment. Traditional oxidising agents such as chlorine and bromine, on the other hand, are associated with pH constraints and corrosion problems.
Traditionally, water utilities have used chlorine gas as the disinfectant of choice in their water treatment plants. However, recent publicly reported chlorine leakages and foreign terrorist attacks have raised concern regarding the safety of this practice.
Wastewater Deodorization: The formation of hydrogen sulfide often poses a problem for municipal wastewater treatment. Chlorine dioxide, a powerful oxidant, can be effectively used to control noxious, irritating, or pungent odors from many operations. Moreover, its unique selective properties permit more efficient application at a lower dosage and cost than chorine, hypochlorite, permanganate peroxide or ozone.
Brewing Equipment Sanitisation: Chlorine dioxide is a safe and effective sanitiser for use in a variety of brewing and packaging applications. CleanOxide Chlorine Dioxide can be applied to water systems, processing equipment, and environmental surfaces to reduce or eliminate brewery spoilage organisms.
Determining chlorinated organics in waste water of the oxychlorination process is for reasons of environmental compliance. The on-line analyzer system uses a scrubber system where a carrier flow is bubbling through the water. The vapor phase is measured by a Flame Ionization Detector (FID) and is a measure for chlorinated organics of the water.
Biological fouling of reverse osmosis is a common problem leading to reduced efficiency and reduced membrane life. CleanOxide Liquid 75 is pure Chlorine dioxide which is a highly effective biocide ideal for use in reverse osmosis systems. CleanOxide Chlorine Dioxide has all the important regulatory approvals in Australia and overseas to be used in water treatment and food processing. Many strategies have been developed in an effort to control biofouling of Reverse Osmosis membranes including the use of sodium...
Our commitment is the development of innovative solutions to ensure greater competitiveness to our customers, through better performances in term of energy savings, investment costs, product quality and environmental impact.
CleanOxide Chlorine Dioxide can safely be used for washing fruit and vegetables, seafood, meat, mushrooms and many other foodstuffs. CleanOxide Chlorine Dioxide destroys bacteria including potentially harmful pathogens such as E.coli, as well as controlling fungi and fungal spores ensuring reduced risk for the consumer and increased shelf life for the produce. Residual chlorine dioxide left on the produce degrades rapidly leaving no harmful residues.
Injecting chlorine dioxide into a well is an established technique for removing sulphides and sulphates from oil and gas wells. CleanOxide Chlorine Dioxide is a practically pure solution of chlorine dioxide. It rapidly oxidises the naturally occurring iron compounds, and is also effective at breaking up and removing organic solids and added polymers.
Odor Control: Chlorine dioxide controls odors by destroying hydrogen sulfide through chemical oxidation. Using an odor scrubber, chlorine dioxide solutions may be added directly to water containing the odorous compound for quick and cost-effective oxidations.
The importance of drinking water quality for the production and performance of poultry has become one of the most important management tools. Without an adequate supply of good quality water, bird performance will be impacted. The key is not just the adequate supply of water, but good quality water.
One prime factor that determines the wholesomeness of water is its microbial quality. Therefore, it should be of primary concern for production personnel and poultry producers to know the microbial quality of water...
