Oxiperm® Pro systems produce chlorine dioxide using diluted solutions of sodium chlorite (NaClO2 7.5 %) and hydrochloric acid (HCl 9 %). They are available in four capacity levels, producing 5, 10, 30 and 60 g/h of chlorine dioxide respectively. This capacity is sufficient to treat up to 150 m³ of drinking water per hour at the maximum admissible concentration of 0.4 mg/l ClO2. Chlorine dioxide is produced on demand from diluted solutions using the reliable sodium chlorite/hydrochloric acid, in accordance with the German Drinking Water Directive. The chlorine dioxide solution produced is stored in an integrated or external batch tank and is added to the drinking water pipe as required using the integrated dosing pump or an external dosing pump. Usually, disinfection is the first step of pathogen reduction, in order to continue operating a drinking water installation. An ideal means of ensuring the sterility of drinking water is to use chlorine dioxide as a disinfectant. Chlorine dioxide is highly effective against all types of germs and has a long dwell time in the tubing system, which means it disinfects even without re-dosing. The big advantage of chlorine dioxide over other disinfectants is its effectiveness against biofilms. It destroys the existing biofilm, thus removing the breeding ground for microorganisms, and prevents it from building up again. Ideal application areas for Oxiperm® Pro include combating germs and pathogens, such as legionella in building installations, disinfecting cooling water systems, and disinfecting drinking water in water plants or industrial processes. Chlorine dioxide is often used in the food and beverage industry for disinfection of process water or for CIP and bottle washing because it doesn’t change the taste or smell of the treated water. Low operating costs: This intelligent method for producing chlorine dioxide functions with minimal need for chemicals and thus saves up to 67 % of hydrochloric acid over other systems on the market with comparable capacity. In comparison with thermal disinfection, up to 90 % of the operating costs can be saved. Stable product solution: With a chlorine dioxide concentration of 2 g/l (2000 ppm), the product solution can be stored for several days. The low concentration makes the solution safe to handle. Conditions for installation No outdoor installation, installation site must be protected against sun and frost, and well-ventilated. Protection against unauthorized access. The system has to be wall-mounted vertically, the component tanks have to be situated below the system. Temperature of dilution water 10-30 °C. Water connection 3-6 bar, floor drain and appropriate mains supply must be provided. (Note: In case of quantity fluctuations in the main water flow, the use of a bypass mixing module or the version with digital dosing pump is recommended, in order to optimise the blending and to minimise the risk of corrosion.
