WHAT IS CHLORINE DIOXIDE?

Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is a yellowish-green gas color, stable and completely soluble in water to concentrations of 10%. The molecular composition of the water does not allow the solubility of chlorine dioxide from 10% concentration. Resulting that in the biggest solution of 10% loses its stability and begins to evaporate.

In the early 70s, they began to study in various universities in the world, analyzing the bactericidal efficiency and limitations of the use of chlorine dioxide. Studies showed that the effectiveness of chlorine dioxide as bactericide is extremely high and could destroy pathogenic microorganisms resistant to chlorine (eg. Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Listeria, Salmonella, biofilm). It was found that chlorine dioxide in water slightly reacted with organic compounds forming very low amount of trihalomethanes (THMs). It was also discovered that the Chlorine Dioxide does not react with chemicals and no chloramines generated within studies reliable analysis techniques were developed to determine the residual amount of chlorine dioxide.

All independent studies confirmed that Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) is an excellent disinfectant residual and reliable qualification method.

 

Chlorine dioxide occurs in three forms in the industry:

1. Gas, water soluble pH 10-12, is produced via special equipment, consisting of a tower of preparation of Chlorine Dioxide. The advantage is that the necessary amount of dioxide is produced as needed; and its disadvantage is that it presents very high costs in purchase and maintenance of the tower.

2. Powder, not very soluble in water with pH 4-5, in this presentation required for activation stirring with an acid product. Its advantages are the low cost of the product, and low operating cost. The disadvantages are that in the activation process generates strong gases that irritate the eyes and throat, the solution changes the pH of the water at the time of activation (pH 6) and it is not a stable product because it loses potency of the active ingredient to short term.

3. Liquid, water soluble, with pH 10 to 12, is a combination of a gas solution Chlorine Dioxide special buffer substance, which generates a stable, soluble liquid. Its disadvantage is that its use is sensitive to ultraviolet light which is not very common in the industry; and its advantages are that it is stable, selective bactericide (not react with organic compounds and loses its concentration only at the time of contact with microbial contamination), does not change the pH of water (pH 7), it is colorless, odorless, and does not affect flavor to the products.

The three forms of Chlorine Dioxide have an efficacy similar biacida, the differences between them are that the first generated a in situ solution but with financial costs and very high operating, the second is the most economical but it is not stable and requires permanent activation, and the third, in liquid solution, easy to apply, with competitive costs in the market.

Chlorine Dioxide in liquid solution is the ideal disinfectant for water treatment and purification, food handling, disinfection of machines, surfaces and utensils, misting areas and disinfecting lines and pipes.

Chlorine Dioxide is standardized by the International Organization of Sanitation as the FDA, DG-SANCO.
