Chlorine Di Oxide Generator

About the Solution

Chlorine Dioxide (Cl02) is another technique to disinfect water. Chlorine Dioxide is generated electrolytically and this technique is suitable for Commercial and industrial use.

A two step reaction takes place

In the first step Chlorus acid is formed : Na+ClO2- + H+ —> HClO2- + Na+ (1)

In the second reaction Chlorine Dioxide is formed : 5 HClO2 —> 4 ClO2 + HCl + 2 H2O (2) or HClO2 - e- —> ClO2 + H+ (3)
