AX20 / AT-8720 – Chlorine Dioxide Precursor 20 for Activ-Ox Dosing System

You are here:

AX20 also known as AT-8720

Prices are POA

Used in-conjunction with AV8 / AT-8708 (activator)

Description

AX20 / AT-8720 is used in-conjunction with AV8 / AT-8708 (activator) and the Activ-Ox Dosing System. AX20 is a unique product which through a controlled reaction releases the ‘active oxygen’ power of chlorine dioxide to disinfect and maintain the microbial quality of drinking, domestic and cooling water systems. It can also be used for odour control and to remove iron, manganese and sulphide from solution.

Chlorine Dioxide is an extremely effective antimicrobial agent which has significant advantages over traditional chlorine based biocides but has to be handled with extreme care because of its toxic and potentially explosive nature. AX20 / AT-8720 is stable, easy to handle solution that when used in conjunction with the Activ-Ox Dosing System system provides all the benefits of chlorine dioxide with none of the problems.

When compared with any other means of generating chlorine dioxide the Activ-Ox system is the only system which can provide instant activation and total control.

Benefits of Chlorine Dioxide v Chlorine

Chlorine Dioxide Chlorine
No taste or odour Taste and odour problems
Does not form chlorinated by by-products Forms trihalomethanes
No reaction with nitrogen-containing compounds Produces Chloramines
Unaffected by pH Reduced effectiveness at high pH
Penetrates and disperses biofilms Little effect on biofilms

Application & Dosage Information

Activation

The biocidal power of AX20 / AT-8720 only becomes available on reaction with the system activator, Accepta 8708 chlorine dioxide release agent.

Where continuous dosage is required a Activ-Ox chlorine dioxide generating system should be used.

Disinfection (dosage rates)

AX20 / AT-8720 combined with AV8 / AT-8708 will produce 20,000ppm (in 50l) which can be used as a comparison against lower strength competitor products, you would however NEVER mix the two chemicals neat. Activ-Ox chemicals are ideally combined by an Activ-Ox dosing system. For tank set ups we recommend lower strength 8710 and following the instructions carefully. eg. 1 drum of each with water in 1000l tank will equal 100ppm solution.

Storage tanks and domestic water services should be disinfected using 1.25L/m3 of system volume AX20 / AT-8720 and a similar volume of AV8 / AT-8708. The system should be left for a minimum of one hour before flushing out.

Alternatively, for large tanks spray disinfection may be employed using a solution containing 5L/m3 of AX20 / AT-8720 and AV8 / AT-8708.

Cooling towers and evaporative condensers should be disinfected by maintaining 25ppm of chlorine dioxide in re-circulation for a period of one hour before and after cleaning.

Accepta technical support can advise on the correct procedure.

Continuous Application

The quality of drinking water can be maintained by continuously dosing AX20 / AT-8720 and AV8 / AT-8708 to provide a maximum concentration of 0.5ppm total oxidant as chlorine dioxide at outlets of the system.

Accepta technical support can advise on the correct dosage levels.

For non-drinking water applications such as domestic hot water services dosage rates may be increased to provide increased protection against Legionella Pneumophila.

Cooling towers and evaporative condensers should be dosed to maintain 0.2 to 0.5ppm chlorine dioxide in re-circulation. The residual oxidant level can be easily monitored with a simple Accepta test.

It is recommended that in all continuous dosing applications a Activ-Ox Simplicity generator system is used to ensure the correct application and maximise the benefit of this innovative product.

For further technical assistance concerning dosage rates for Accepta 8720 please contact Accepta technical support.

It is always advisable to carry out a ‘Control Of Substances Hazardous to Health’ (COSHH) assessment before use.
