What is Electricide? Electricide is the brand name for the Dioxide Pacific electrochemical chlorine dioxide generators.
The 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 maximized 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 utilize 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.

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.
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
- 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) sanitisation
- CIP sanitisation
- Iron and manganese oxidation
- Cooling tower disinfection for Legionalla destruction
- Cooling system macro and micro fouling control for fresh water and sea water circuits
- Poultry processing chiller water disinfection
