How ClO2IX® Works

Overview

Dripping Wet Water has introduced an innovative approach to surpass conventional Chlorine Dioxide generation technologies.

In order to make Chlorine Dioxide, chlorous acid must first be formed. The ClO2IX® systems produce a solution of chlorous acid without residual Na+ by using cation exchange resin in the H+ form. This removes the Na+ from the sodium chlorite and replaces it with H+ to form pure chlorous acid.

Once the pure chlorous acid is formed, the reaction to Chlorine Dioxide can commence. By utilizing catalytic technology, the ClO2IX® systems convert virtually all ( > 98.5%) of the chlorous acid to Chlorine Dioxide. This occurs instantaneously. The resultant dilute 700 mg/l Chlorine Dioxide product contains no chlorine and virtually no chlorite. Because of the ability for the ClO2IX® systems to dispense in a continuous rather than a batch process, the need for onsite storage of Chlorine Dioxide is removed.
