How is the Chlorine Dioxide level controlled?
The Activ-Ox dosage is typically controlled by a signal from a water meter in the make-up line to the system being treated. This provides precise, direct fail-safe proportional control over the dosage of Chlorine Dioxide and is inherently much simpler and safer than most chlorine dioxide generators. The Activ-Ox dosing system can be programmed to deliver the required chlorine dioxide level and will add ClO2 at that rate based on the water flow.
Since water supplies and water distribution systems have a chlorine dioxide demand, particularly if they have an established biofilm, each Activ-Ox dosing system is supplied with a simple test kit to enable the residual Chlorine Dioxide to be tested at strategic locations and the dosage level to be adjusted to establish and maintain the required free chlorine dioxide residual throughout the system being treated.
Whilst water meter controlled dosage is the most common arrangement we can also supply systems with direct chlorine dioxide monitoring and timer controlled dosage.
