CHLORINE DIOXIDE AT YOUR CONVENIENCE 

CLORIOUS 2 IN BRIEF

WATER DISINFECTION PRODUCT / CLORIOUS 2 UNLOCKING THE POWER AND VERSATILITY OF CHLORINE DIOXIDE.

❚ Transportable, ready-to-use chlorine dioxide solution
❚ No on-site chemical mixing, no generator, no activation period
❚ Highly concentrated, pure chlorine dioxide in solution
❚ Long-term stability
❚ Safe to use
❚ Easy to apply with chemical dosing pump
❚ Patented technology

By making chlorine dioxide available in a transportable, ready-to-use form, GPC Clear Solutions is able to cover a wide range of industries and aid the development of new applications that require disinfection and oxidation solutions. 

Because of its unique properties and benefits, chlorine dioxide is the disinfectant of choice for the 21st century. Current chlorine dioxide production methods entail the use of generators. 

Chlorine Dioxide Properties

Molecular formula: ClO2

  • Yellowish, volatile gas at room temperature 
  • Chlorine type odour
  • Highly soluble, remains in the water a true, dissolved gas 
  • Inorganic free radical in oxidation state +4
  • Inactivation by electron exchange in lieu of chlorine atom exchange
  • Favourable environmental footprint (green chemistry)
  • Excellent antimicrobial properties over a wide pH range (2-10)
  • Used for potable water treatment since 1944; commonly employed in many other industries
  • EU, USEPA approved, listed in WHO Drinking Water Quality Guidelines

Chlorine Dioxide Properties

Chlorine Dioxide Benefits

  • Broad spectrum antimicrobial efficacy; germicide, virucide, fungicide, sporicide, algaecide, slimicide
  • Unique inactivation mechanism; oxidation of genetic machinery, no known immunity building by microorganisms 
  • Powerful oxidising agent; more than twice the oxidative capacity of chlorine, but has lower oxidation strength
  • Fast acting, selective oxidation chemistry
  • Oxidises without chlorinating, no (eco)toxic or carcinogenic halogenated disinfection by-products (THMs, HAAs, AOX)
  • Residual biocidal activity
  • Minimises corrosion to processing equipment, tanks and lines
  • Improved aesthetics (taste and odour control)
  • Removes biofilm from water distribution systems
Chlorine Dioxide Mechanism

Features and Benefits:

  • Transportable, ready-to-use chlorine dioxide solution
  • No on site chemical mixing, no generator, no activation period
  • Highly concentrated, pure chlorine dioxide in aqueous solution (pH approx. 3) 
  • Long term stable (½ year)
  • Safe to use, non explosive
  • Easy to apply (standard chemical dosing pump)
  • Precise water chemistry management 
  • Patented method
  • Proprietary manufacturing method to enhance stability, purity and safety
  • High chemical yield; efficient conversion of chlorite into chlorine dioxide
  • Based on oxidation of chlorite, no acidification or chlorination
