Chlorine dioxide has been described as the “ideal” biocide. Recent innovations in safe and efficient delivery mechanisms have allowed chlorine dioxide to be applied to a wide variety of applications. It’s now included in many drinking water hygiene programs around the globe. Complete testing has confirmed the safety of chlorine dioxide. This includes extensive studies by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and World Health Organization (WHO).
Clo2 assists in protecting the environment from harmful chemicals, dangerous bacteria and by-products formed from other disinfection methods. Chlorine Dioxide is rapidly gaining worldwide public acceptance. Dutrion solutions create the right environment for the chlorine dioxide molecules with a long biocidal effect and long lasting residual, for the right price and in the right packaging. We think that’s all you need….
The potential for our technology is far reaching; applications range from drinking water, animal health, food industry, bio security, etc. Almost 80 different claims have been described in EPA literature. In fact, anywhere microbial contamination is an issue, Dutrion can be the right choice.
In case of chlorine dioxide, the oxygen atoms/electron transfer causes the oxidation. The chloride ion (as in sodium chloride (=salt)) does not take an active part in the reaction. The pungent smell of chlorine can therefore not be detected in the water when using chlorine dioxide.
Chlorine dioxide is very effective in killing pathogens such as fungi, bacteria and viruses. It’s a very selective oxidant and reacts mainly with organic substances. The major advantage of chlorine dioxide, in comparison with other oxidants (hydrogen peroxide, ozone and chlorine), is its low oxidation power, in combination with a high oxidation capacity. The combination of low oxidation power and high oxidation capacity makes this product very suitable for relatively safe and easy use in a variety of applications including aquaculture.
Contrary to many other oxidants, chlorine dioxide is also very effective at low temperatures and high pH values. Unlike chlorine, chlorine dioxide does not affect the pH value.
