Oil and gas producers are discovering the benefits gained through the use of environmentally safe chlorine dioxide. It is becoming the biocide of choice to replace chlorine (which is short lived) and hazardous non-oxidizing biocides such as glutaraldehyde or isothiazolone. Chlorine dioxide is perfect for fraccing and frac water treatment.
The benefits of chlorine dioxide include:
Breakdown of biofilms
Effective inactivation of anaerobic organisms
Environmentally friendly reaction by-products Chlorite, chlorate and chloride
pH independence of disinfection
Selective reaction with organics
No chlorinated organic reaction by-products
Dioxide Pacific has pioneered the manufacture of high capacity electrochemical chlorine dioxide
generators with production capacity in excess of 500 lbs. ClO2/ day.
CHLORIDE DIOXIDE IS THE ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE BIOCIDAL OPTION FOR OIL AND GAS
Only one precursor chemical to haul out to the field. This is the lowest storage and handling requirement of any chlorine dioxide generator.
No acid or chlorine precursor chemical required.
New cell design delivers a high conversion rate, nearing 90%.
High electrical conversion rate.
All electronic components are mounted in rugged cabinets designed for harsh environments.
Installation in mobile units available.
Chlorine dioxide does not react with organic aromatic components of crude and does not chlorinate hydrocarbons
Chlorine dioxide oxidizes iron sulfide from the near well bore area of injection and producing wells, increasing injection rates and reducing pressure losses.
Chlorine dioxide does not bio-accumulate.
Removes biofouling to increase injection rates, reduce pressure losses, clean pipework and tanks.
