Chlorine Dioxide

chlorineAQQUON is a 2-component powder kit to generate safe and fast a liquid Chlorine Dioxide solution in potable water. Many applications have been tested with the chlorine dioxide chemistry but the gaseous molecule was difficult to control. AQQUON uses other components to produce a stable chlorine dioxide solution.

This new technology and packaging makes use effective for large, medium and smaller water volumes. Without high investments the unique chemistry becomes available for disinfection and cleaning of water to a high purity, killing all known water-borne micro-organisms without production of hazardous by-products created by traditional chemicals.
Duka Production Ltd., a Dutch based company, supplies dealers and corporations all over the world has exclusive distribution agreements with partners in several countries like Australia, South Africa, Russia, Egypt, India, China, Mexico, Pakistan, USA & Canada.

Background Finding:

The AQQUON 2-powder kit generates a stabilised solution of chlorine dioxide in a certain volume of potable water. A very flexible and continuously chlorine dioxide concentration, between 0.01 ppm and 4000 ppm, can be achieved for the final application.
Within the soft drinks and brewing industry there is general agreement that Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) is a superior sterilising agent to Sodium Hypochlorite. It is used in a number of public utilities as sterilising agent for potable water.
The advantages of Chlorine Dioxide over Sodium Hypochlorite are:

  • Effective against biofilms
  • Does not produce Chlorophenols
  • Does not react with organic matter to form Tri-Halo Methanes (THM's)
  • Does not react with organic matter to form Halo Acetic Acids (HAA's)
  • Does not react with Ammonia or Ammonium
  • Does not react with Bromide to not form Hypobromite (OBr) which therefore avoids the formation of Bromoform (CHBr3) or Bromate (BrO3)
  • 10x more oxidising power than Chlorine
  • Significantly more (250% has been claimed) disinfection power than chlorine products e.g. Hypochlorous Acid

AQQUON consists of a two powder kit A and B, that when mixed with a specific quantity of water produces a Chlorine Dioxide solution with a kinetic halftime of 30-60 days. The end user makes this liquid chlorine dioxide solution as AQQUON normally not comes as a 0.2 – 0.4% solution. AQQUON has been approved for chemical treatment of drinking water for human consumption according the NSF/ANSI.60 guidelines.
