Chlorine Dioxide (chemical formula ClO2 with molecular weight 68) is known to be a unique and effective oxidizer and biocide. However, unlike chlorine or bromine, when Chlorine Dioxide is dissolved in water, it does not dissociate into ions. Instead, it remains as a non-ionic species. This unique property is responsible for many of its practical uses as an effective cleaner, oxidizer and biocide.
Chlorine Dioxide is the best way to disinfect. Since Chlorine Dioxide is an EPA-approved water disinfectant product, wherever disinfection of water is necessary, it is a natural choice. Now that the challenges of past systems have been overcome with the CLO2IX® product line, Chlorine Dioxide can actually be applied safely and instantaneously in a pure solution. These unique properties open markets for Chlorine Dioxide that were previously closed, as is demonstrated by the hundreds of CLO2IX® installations worldwide.
