Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) is a proven odor eliminating gas with strong oxidizing abilities. It has become a work horse in odor abatement, particularly in smoke elimination. When selecting a company to solve your odor problems it is important to know what they use and how they apply it. Only with a gas use of chlorine, and the latest in technology, with deep reaching abilities will you be able to eliminate tough odors. The physical nature of chlorine dioxide is a gas of a yellow green color. It is very soluble in water and is commonly used in water treatment for drinking water and vegetable rinses, it actually breaks down into a salt water solution. CLO2 is one of the strongest oxidizers of odor molecules.
It's Often Confused - Chlorine Dioxide smells somewhat like chlorine bleach, but it should not be confused with chlorine bleach or chlorine gas. They all share the name of “Chlorine” but are very different chemicals that react differently and produce by-products that have little in common. Chlorine Dioxide forms none of the harmful by-products produced by chlorine gas or chlorine bleach. Chlorine bleach and chlorine gas both operate through chlorination of a substance, the sharing of a chlorine atom. Chlorine Dioxide is effective through an oxidation process where a substance is oxidized.
Chlorine Dioxide forms none of the harmful by‐products produced by chlorine. Chlorine Dioxide functions as a highly selective oxidant and it remains as a free stable radical even in diluted chilled water.
Chlorine Dioxide readily vaporizes and reacts with many things around it, or it decomposes and it is gone. Once Chlorine Dioxide is deployed through the gas method it either reacts or it decomposes. One of the most significant benefits of ClO2 is that it does not stay around. It is important to know that CLO2 is attracted to water and a few companies use a sponge as a delivery method. The problem is with CLO2 being attracted to water and using a wet sponge, the sponge holds water so not all of the gas can be released making it less effective.
Chlorine Dioxide covers a broad range of uses and remains active and effective through a large band range of PH scale from 1-8.
