Chlorine Dioxide

Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) is a yellow to red manufactured gas with an unpleasant odour, used as a disinfectant that kills bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

What is Chlorine Dioxide?

Chlorine Dioxide is commonly used to disinfect drinking water, as an anti-inflammatory, bactericidal, fungicidal, and viricidal agent, a deodoriser, and also able to inactivate beta-lactams and destroy both pinworms and their eggs. It is effective as an anti-inflammatory, bactericidal, fungicidal, and viricidal agent, as well as a deodorizer, and also able to inactivate beta-lactams and destroy both pinworms and their eggs. Exposure to Chlorine Dioxide can irritate the skin, eyes, nose, throat, lungs, causing coughing, wheezing or shortness of breath.

Chlorine Dioxide monitoring

It is important to monitor Chlorine Dioxide levels due to its effect on human health. If the parts per million (PPM) exceed certain thresholds, it can result in negative implications.  Installing accurate, reliable and continuous monitoring is important to avoid reaching dangerous and toxic levels.
