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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
Successful pig and poultry farming demands that measures are taken to control the introduction and spread of infectious agents. Chlorine Dioxide has been used very successfully in farming and slaughterhouses as a processing aid that is added to maintain water of good microbial quality. CleanOxide Chlorine Dioxide is used for sanitising hard surfaces and processing equipment to assist in the prevention of the propagation and transmission of disease.
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.
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...
