In recent years, there has been a growing concern about the quality of water used in agriculture, particularly concerning the transmission of diseases and the growth of harmful bacteria.
As a result, many farmers are turning to water treatment solutions to ensure that their water supply is clean and safe for their crops and animals.
One such solution is Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) treatment, which is becoming increasingly popular in agriculture due to its many benefits over traditional water treatments such as hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).
Nothing Removes Biofilm Better
One of the key advantages of ClO2 treatment is its ability to effectively penetrate and remove biofilm build-up in water pipework and drinkers, keeping them clean.
Biofilm can provide a breeding ground for harmful bacteria and can be difficult to remove using traditional treatments. ClO2 , however, is highly effective at targeting compounds commonly found in bacterial cells, making it a much more robust solution than hydrogen peroxide.
Safe and Easy to Use
Another advantage of ClO2 treatment is that it is safe and easy to use. Unlike hydrogen peroxide, which requires pre-mixing and exposure to hazardous chemicals that can lead to skin burns, ClO2 treatment can be provided as a fully automatic package of equipment and water treatment chemicals, requiring no pre-dilution.
Furthermore, hydrogen peroxide is classified as a Tier 2 Explosive Precursor under new European Regulations, and sites using the product require appropriate regulatory licenses and notifications to be made. ClO2 , on the other hand, requires much lower dose rates than H2O2. It is better targeted at biological matter, meaning you do not risk corrosion and damage to pumps, pipework, and drinker lines.
