Municipal Water Supplies
Maximise purity, eliminate THM and Bromate issues
Chlorine Dioxide water treatment was first applied in European drinking water in 1956, as a pre-oxidant to remove iron and manganese contamination from raw water prior to treatment. Today, Chlorine Dioxide is applied throughout the treatment train - from the pre-treatment of raw and reverse osmosis feedstocks, through to the final disinfection and maintenance of a residual in the distribution network.
Applications for Chlorine Dioxide in municipal water disinfection are being driven by the ever stricter requirements of WHO standards, and associated national regulations that restrict the levels of harmful Bromates, Trihalomethanes (THMs) and other chlorinated organic compounds that are permitted to be present in drinking water supplies. Chlorine Dioxide water purification is an effective solution for THM reduction.
When compared to chlorination - be it from gas chlorination, hypochlorite, chloramination, or on-site electro chlorination; the powerful chemistry of Chlorine Dioxide ensures that only minimal dose rates are needed, and none of the harmful by-products associated with chlorination are produced.
When applying Chlorine Dioxide to your treatment train or network for the first time, our globally experienced team are on hand to assist you with the transition, and provide you with the depth of experience and expertise necessary for these crucial applications.
