What is Chlorine Dioxide?

ClO2 is a yellowish gas with a chlorine-like odour. Although the names state that there is “chlorine” in chlorine dioxide, the chlorine (Cl) compound is in actual fact neutral. Chlorine dioxide is an incredibly powerful disinfectant many times more effective than chlorine. Not only does chlorine dioxide have a wide spectrum of uses, but it’s also economical, and its environmental profile is safer than other choices.

That can be used in many sanitation applications, including pasteurization equipment, heat exchangers, cooling towers, fruit and vegetable disinfection, hard surface disinfecting, potable water treatment, and deodorizing stacks in rendering plants.

Of waterborne chlorine (from bleach), giving it a wide spectrum of sanitizing uses and making it extraordinarily effective. Studies have shown that it produces as high as a 6-log reduction.

It can be used in many sanitation applications, including pasteurization equipment, heat exchangers, cooling towers, fruit and vegetable disinfection, hard surface disinfecting, potable water treatment, wastewater disinfection and deodorizing stacks in rendering plants.

At diluted concentrations as low as 5 parts-per-million (ppm). In some cases, the compound has demonstrated a rapid kill of bacteria much less than the 30-minute period typically used in disinfection studies. Because it is so powerful in such small amounts, it is also extremely economical.
