ProMinent at Anuga FoodTec 2015: Economical and environmentally-sound chlorine dioxide generation
ProMinent is presenting its new chlorine dioxide system Bello Zon® CDLb on stand E 041 in hall 9.1 at Anuga FoodTec between 24-27 March 2015 in Cologne. The system uses the chlorite/acid process and produces a chlorine-free chlorine dioxide solution in a batch process from a sodium chlorite solution with hydrochloric acid.
Thanks to the innovative reactor design and gradual process flow, this method of producing chlorine dioxide is exceptionally safe. The system can produce up to 120 g of chlorine dioxide per hour, depending on the type. This is buffered in an integrated or separate storage module at a concentration of 1,000 or 2,000 mg/l. Thanks to the 60 g of chlorine dioxide buffered in the separate receiver module, these systems need not be dimensioned according to their peak load but rather based on their mean consumption. This drastically reduces investment costs in comparison with conventional systems.
The innovative process produces a chlorine dioxide solution of exceptional long-term stability and achieves a high efficiency of over 90% in the chlorine dioxide reaction. No chlorine dioxide can escape from the system due to the closed gas supply, guaranteeing economical, environmentally friendly operation with minimal use of chemicals. The modular construction of the system enables it to meet a range of different applications.
