Electrochemical Chlorine Dioxide Generators

Electricide® is the brand name for the Dioxide Pacific electrochemical chlorine dioxide generators.

Dioxide Pacific Electricide® electrochemical Chlorine Dioxide Generators are state of the art technology in chlorine dioxide generation. The generators produce chlorine dioxide from one chemical – Electricide-P1 and electricity. Safety is maximised as no incompatible feed chemicals are used. Lowest running cost is available due to the high efficiency of chlorine dioxide generation in the electrolytic cell with gas separation and gas dissolution equipment.

Typical applications for the Electricide® chlorine dioxide generator include potable water disinfection; process water disinfection in the food and beverage industry; inactivation of legionella for cooling towers and hospitals; CIP sanitization; biolfilm destruction in heat exchange circuits; chilled water systems and seawater macrofouling and microfouling control. The list is almost endless. Dioxide Pacific is an expert in the design and application of chlorine dioxide disinfection technology and a world leader in the manufacture of chlorine dioxide generators.

The Electricide® chlorine dioxide generators utilise one chemical – Electricide-P1 and electrical power to produce 99.5% pure chlorine dioxide. The generators come in two forms: “S” type generators produce chlorine dioxide as a 2,000 ppm solution, stored in a level controlled solution tank, ready for accurate dosing with metering pumps to multiple dosing points. The “G” type generators produce chlorine dioxide gas which can be safely dosed into a single dosing point. “G” type generators are typically used in cooling towers and potable water treatment plants.

Chlorine Dioxide Generation Reactions:

① Anode (oxidation): ClO2 → ClO2 + e

② Cathode (reduction): 2H2O + 2e → H2 + 2OH

① + ② (combined) 2ClO2 + 2H2O → 2ClO2 + H2 + 2OH

The key benefits of the Electricide® generator are the use of only one precursor chemical, highest safety and lowest running cost. Another important feature is remote internet access for validation and troubleshooting. For a full list of features and benefits, please download the CDE Electrochemical Chlorine Dioxide Generator Brochure pdf-icon-aa-30x30

Dioxide Pacific offers the the Electricide® generator as a complete package including Electricide-P1 chemical supply and maintenance. Remote internet access enables viewing of generator operation at any time and from any location via an internet browser – to just check the system is operating correctly, make an adjustment to a setpoint or reset an alarm. PLC or HMI program changes can be made without having to attend site. Remote internet access adds up to lower maintenance costs for you. Why send a technician to site when there is no need for it! Dioxide Pacific provides a huge library of “how to” technical and training video resources for your use, all accessible from our website. For instance, we have videos for: “how do I test the performance of the electrolytic cell”; “how do I test chlorine dioxide strength”; “how do I replace a metering pump”. In mostf cases, you can safely perform maintenance on the generator without involving our technicians. If you would prefer Dioxide Pacific to handle some or all of the maintenance, of course we can provide technicians for this.

Why not lease the system?

Instead of purchasing the chlorine dioxide system, you could consider the Dioxide Pacific total service contract. Under this arrangement, we will provide the equipment and maintain the unit at your site and all you need to do is provide a fixed monthly fee for the use of the equipment. All the operational risk is with Dioxide Pacific. Your capital is released to use in your core business.

How is chemical supplied?

Electricide-P1 can be supplied in 200L (52 Gal) drums or 1,000L (260 Gal) IBC’s (totes). The IBC (tote) installation can involve a fiberglass or HDPE spill containment bund which store chemical in a safe manner and make chemical handling and changeover easy without operator involvement.

Dioxide Pacific offers turnkey systems including design drawings (P&ID, 3D model and GA), installation (mechanical and electrical) and commissioning. Our quality project management system ensures the plant will be installed on time with the smallest possible interruption to your site. We have proven risk management protocols written specifically for chlorine dioxide systems to ensure that installation, commissioning, training and operation of the plant is extremely safe.

Chlorine dioxide systems can be installed in dedicated plant rooms, skids for transportation to remote sites or in portable buildings.

The use of chlorine dioxide is limitless. However, some widely used applications include the following:

  • Milk powder condensate disinfection for re-use
  • Potable water disinfection
  • Waste water disinfection
  • Water used for in greenhouses
  • Thermal storage systems
  • Secondary disinfection of water entering healthcare facilities
  • Nursery irrigation water disinfection for disinfestation of plant pathogens
  • Vegetable and fruit washing
  • Beverage industry process water disinfection
  • Food industry process water disinfection
  • Membrane (RO, NF, UF) sanitization
  • CIP sanitization
  • Iron and manganese oxidation
  • Cooling tower disinfection for Legionella destruction
  • Cooling system macro and micro fouling control for fresh water and sea water circuits
