Chlorine Dioxide Generator Helps Kill Disease-Causing Pathogens
Severn Trent Services’ Capitol Controls line of chlorine dioxide generators aids in the prevention of trihalomethane formation, a chlorinated organic byproduct, by oxidizing the precursors that cause THMs.
When bromide is present in the treated water, chlorine dioxide is also used to prevent bromate formation. Chlorine dioxide is a method of killing the disease-causing pathogens Giardia and Cryptosporidium. Chlorine dioxide can also be used to remove the phenolic compounds that cause potable water taste and odor problems.
Chlorine dioxide generators produce this effective disinfectant chemical in drinking-water treatment applications to oxidize reduced iron, manganese, sulfur compounds, and certain odor-causing organic substances in raw water.
