Chlorine Dioxide

Chlorine Dioxide kills microorganisms by disrupting the transportation of nutrients across the cell wall. Due to this, it has been labelled and recognised as a superior disinfectant by the EPA.

Chlorine Dioxide (Cl02) was discovered in 1817 by Sir Humphrey Davy. In the early 1900s the chemical was recognised as an antimicrobial biocide, and since then has been widely known for its disinfecting properties. Chlorine Dioxide Ready-toUse kills microorganisms by disrupting the transportation of nutrients across the cell wall and because of that it has been labelled and recognised as a superior disinfectant. Further recommended by the EPA as a solution to trihalomethanes (THM’S), applied by Nanotech as: Clear

Clear (Chlorine Dioxide Ready-to-Use) is a neutral chlorine compound, different to chlorine in both its behaviour and chemical structure. The green-yellowish synthetic solution is a volatile and very strong molecule. When diluted, Cl02 is a free radical but at high concentrations, the gas reacts with reducing agents. When comparing Chlorine Dioxide Ready-to-Use to other biocides (chlorine, ozone, hydrogen peroxide, hypochlorous acid) it has a significantly lower oxidation capacity, however, it is strong enough to attack bacterial and biological material bonds.

Chlorine Dioxide Ready-to-Use is effective against Giardia and Cryptosporidium, bacteria, viruses, mould, fungi, and algae. The chemical applications span from both domestic and  industrial applications:

Clear has been successfully applied in the following industrial applications:

  • Power and Industrial
  • Food and Beverage
  • Water Utilities
  • Oil and Gas
  • Hospitality
  • Agriculture
  • Healthcare
  • Abattoirs
  • Aviation
  • FMCG
