TwinOxide is a unique, advanced delivery system of two solid components.
TwinOxide generates a chlorine dioxide solution that is applied as a (drinking) water disinfectant. It is delivered as a two part powder kit of Component A and Component B. Once added to water, TwinOxide reacts to a stable chlorine dioxide solution. The solid TwinOxide kits are easy to store and distribute and have a shelf life of 5 years.
Superior disinfection power
There is a significant chemical difference between TwinOxide and chlorine and chlorine-type disinfectants. Although chlorine can be found in the name, the product is not a chlorine-type disinfectant. When the TwinOxide solution is applied, the chlorine dioxide molecule kills the full spectrum of bacteria, algae, fungi, spores, protozoan, yeast, methanogens, viruses, mold and biofilm by its great oxidizing capacity. Clean water can get infected in pipelines because of biofilm. In contrast with other chlorine and chlorine-type disinfectants, TwinOxide is the perfect solution to remove biofilm.
TwinOxide is available in 2x 200g packs which can be used to activate a 10 litre 0.3% ClO2 solution which is equal to 3000ppm per 1 litre.
Very efficient dosage and water disinfection
In general, 1 liter of TwinOxide 0.3% / 3000ppm solution, with a dosage rate between 0.05 – 2.0 ppm will produce up to 60,000 liters of potable water. Deviations of these dosage rates are likely.
0.3% of 1 litre is 3g, each gram of chlorine dioxide is 1000ppm
1ml of activated solution will produce 3ppm in a 1 litre
eg to treat 1,000 litres with 3ppm you would need 1000ml or 1 litre of activated solution.
Please note Twin Oxide requires a 3 – 5 hour activation period before use.
