Chlorine dioxide is a highly potent, fast acting bactericide and virucide at concentrations as low as 0.1 ppm. It does not form toxic by-products, is effective over a wide pH range in both hard and soft water; and does not react with most other water treatment chemicals and so leaves no residual toxicity. It will eliminate both planktonic and sessile bacteria, disinfect surfaces and rapidly destroy problematic biofilm. With minimal contact time, it is highly effective against many pathogenic organisms including bacterial spores, Legionella, Tuberculosis, MRSA, VRE, Listeria, Salmonella, amoebal cysts, Giardia cysts, E. coli, Cryptosporidium and more. Importantly, chlorine dioxide also destroys biofilm so bacterial re-growth is significantly impeded.
We believe that our innovative“Simplicity” technology is currently the safest and most effective way of delivering chlorine dioxide at the point-of-use for applications in the facilities management and building services sectors.
Our “Simplicity” chlorine dioxide system is extremely effective at penetrating biofilms and controlling amoebae, both of which can encourage the growth of Legionella bacteria. “Simplicity” also has full approval from the British Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) for use in potable water.
With chlorine dioxide, it is the oxygen which reacts, not the chlorine. With “Simplicity” there are no unpleasant by-products; the chlorine component ultimately ends up as harmless, soluble chloride ion's at very low levels.
The “Simplicity” dosing system has a number of unique design features which make it the safest, most controllable way of producing chlorine dioxide:
As a further precaution against the inadvertent mixing of the chemicals, the injection tubing is double walled and the chemical drums are placed inside individual bunds with lids.
Biofilms can cause health problems:
