Chlorine Dioxide Generators – ClO2 Dosing Systems
Feedwater’s range of Activ-Ox Chlorine Dioxide Generators and dosing systems are the simplest, safest and most cost-effective way to produce a controlled dosage of ClO2 for a wide range of commercial, industrial and water treatment applications.
A conventional chlorine dioxide generator tends to be an expensive and complicated system for dosing ClO2, which requires 2 or 3 hazardous chemicals and is very much for the specialist user. Activ-Ox dosing systems by contrast use low hazard pre-cursors, are easy and safe to use and are a low cost way to generate ClO2 for almost all applications where a conventional chlorine dioxide generator would be have historically been used.
Many chlorine dioxide suppliers don’t actually make the generator themselves – they are simply distributors. Feedwater is actually the manufacturer of the Activ-OX® dosing systems and also makes the chemicals – so if you want the best product at the best price then contact us today!
How does an Activ-Ox Chlorine Dioxide Generator alternative work?
The Activ-Ox chlorine dioxide system uses 2 pre-cursor chemicals in much the same way a conventional chlorine dioxide generator does, but with some very important differences. The patented Activ-Ox chemistry releases ClO2 instantaneously where as a conventional Chlorine Dioxide generator or stabilised Chlorine Dioxide dosing system can take several hours to give its maximum yield of ClO2.
The chlorine dioxide yield of the Activ-Ox process is very high, converting around 95% of the pre-cursor to ClO2. This is higher than other processes and much higher than some so called stabilised Chlorine Dioxide systems which not only give a low yield but take a long time to do it.
Another critical difference between Activ-Ox and other chlorine dioxide generators is that it doesn’t need a strong acid to work. Activ-8, the matching pre-cursor to Activ-Ox is a special blend of non-hazardous weak acids that are approved for food and drinking water applications. The patented Activ-Ox chemistry is so different from that used in a conventional Chlorine Dioxide generator that you could even activate it with Coca Cola!
