The BWT UK range of chlorine dioxide generators have been designed and developed to offer a flexible effective means of water disinfection to a diverse array of business and commercial premises.
Chlorine dioxide is a very effective disinfectant and will attack and remove a biofilm. BWT Chlorine dioxide generators are used to accurately mix two chemicals together in a controlled environment, the product of which is then carefully used to dose the water delivery system. Suitable for flow rates up to 200m3 with the advantage of no taste or odours. The dosing can be controlled manually or modulated automatically.
Typical systems consist of an electronic dosing pump, flow sensors and a state of the art electronic control panel.
Chlorine dioxide is often used to combat legionella in buildings, for disinfecting cooling water systems, and process water. The BWT compact chlorine dioxide generator system used in the UK is robust, compact and user friendly ensuring operational reliability, lower maintenance costs and ease of use.
This intelligently controlled method for producing chlorine dioxide is designed to operate efficiently whilst using less chemicals and can save up to 67 % of hydrochloric acid over other types of systems with a comparable capacity. In comparison with thermal disinfection, up to 90 % of the operating costs can be saved. While the low chlorine dioxide concentration of approx. 2 g/l (2000 ppm), means the produced solution can be stored for several days reducing waste and at the same time is safe to handle. The whole system can be installed easily in most locations and can in some cases even be taken into operation without interrupting the buildings water supply. This can represent a decisive cost factor where water is in use 24 hours a day. Operational accessories are also available to facilitate assembly and start up.
The flexibility of the system also means measuring devices for chlorine dioxide, Ph and Redox can easily be added to the control unit which is supplied with suitable connections as standard.
