klorine oxideis a two-component liquid kit that delivers a 0.5% to 2.00 chlorine dioxide solution. klorine oxidedoes NOT generate by-products known from chlorine dioxide (e.g. chlorite, chlorate, chloride or free chlorine). klorine oxide can be considered far more advanced than chlorine dioxide generated in classical ways. Further klorine oxide is NOT EXPLOSIVE and has a chemical halftime of 30-60 days (depending on storage conditions). Like ozone, chlorine dioxide is soluble as a true gas. The ClO2 molecule remains a true gas in solution-making it more energetic and able to reach all points in a system. Because it is a true gas and soluble in virtually anything, it can penetrate the bacterial slime layers (biofilm). Finally, chlorine dioxide breaks down to sodium chloride. This along with the failure to form toxic and carcinogenic chlorination by-products and produce a build-up of toxic organic or inorganic by-products like bromates makes chlorine dioxide the most eco-friendly biocide that can be used.
An absolute comparison per volume of other disinfectants does not provide the real cost comparison with klorine oxide. Other cost factors range from:
(Chlorine) Reactor cost of ownership, including maintenance, certification & re-certification.
Security measures & risk and liability insurance policy.
Training, certification and re-certification of qualified personnel.
Environmental, health & safety factors.
Hazard transport cost.
Use of additional chemicals (e.g. pH level stabilizers).
The cost of NOT delivering the required biocidal results.
Large scale public drinking and water supply system
