A growing number of industries are relying on the oxidation properties of chlorine dioxide. Chlorine dioxide is quickly becoming the preferred bleaching agent in the pulp and paper industry because it minimizes the environmental impact of the bleaching process.
Chlorine dioxide is also used to not only treat municipal and drinking water supplies, but also control the water’s taste, odor and color. In the food industry, chlorine dioxide treats water used to clean equipment and preparation surfaces, wash fruits and vegetables, and prevent salmonella and e-coli from contaminating meat and poultry.
In commercial and institutional applications, chlorine dioxide is used to prevent the spread of Legionella in hospitals and universities. Industrially, chlorine dioxide is an effective membrane treatment, as well as a biocide for cooling and wastewater. It is used in the production of ethanol, microelectronics, nitrogen and ammonia.
The following facilities, businesses, and functions are all candidates of using chlorine dioxide: Air Washers, Clinical Laboratory Waste, Cooling Tower Cleaning, Cooling Towers, Cruise Ships, Dental Water Systems, Dialysis Clinics, Emergency Drinking Water, Grocery Store Produce Misting Machines, Health Club Spas, Medical Waste, Medical/Dental/Vet Instrument Cleaning, Ornamental Fountains, Retirement Homes, ‘Sick’ Buildings, Small DRinking Water Plants, Swimming Pools, Third World Drinking Water, Waste Water, and many more!
