Drinking water treatment in municipal waterworks

eOxide LQ 75 (ClO2) is an alternative to Chlorine gas and sodium hypohlorite, the most used water disinfecting agents.

eOxide LQ 75 produces no organic, chlorine compounds with those contaminants most frequently found in water, e.g. Chloro phenols or halogenated Hydrocarbons (for example Halo forms such as Chloroform which is considered carcinogenic).The compounds formed from the reaction of Chlorine dioxide with organic water contaminants are therefore largely negligible in terms of sensory or toxicity considerations. This makes eOxide LQ 75 an ideal disinfectant for the treatment of drinking water. eOxide LQ 75 has all the benefits of chlorine with none of its downside. Furthermore, because the chlorine dioxide is a more powerful disinfectant than chlorine the result is reduced chemicals usage and lower environmental impact.

  • Chlorine dioxide is superior to chlorine in the destruction of spores, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens

  • The bactericidal efficiency is relatively constant at pH 4 to 10

  • ClO2 requires a lower contact time

  • Chlorine dioxide has a higher solubility

  • Chlorine dioxide does not react with NH3 or NH4 +

  • It destroys THM precursors and increases coagulation

  • ClO2 destroys phenols and is odorless

  • It removes iron and magnesium compounds better than chlorine, especially in complex compounds

eOxide LQ will not produce hazardous chlorinated by products like THM and HAA.

eOxide LQ can be used with standard teflon based dosing pumps.

eOxide LQ can be dosed with dosing pumps which operate without electricity.

eOxide LQ residuals can be measured with DPD1 reagents, photometer and membrane sensors.

Low investment to change a municipality or company from chlorine to eOxide LQ 75!
