Disinfection of Hot Water Circuits Using Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2)

The continual heating of drinking water in circulation pipework and its multiple branches creates a need for a persistently effective disinfectant; the disinfectant must remain present in sufficient quantities throughout the entire water circuit long after it is fed into the system. This effectively combats and kills off legionnaire's disease and other pathogens in the drinking water, and prevents them from breeding.

Chlorine dioxide is a chemical that is commonly used to address these issues. However, chlorine dioxide cannot be stored, it must be generated as required from its constituent reagents and fed into the water circuit. Lutz-Jesco chlorine dioxide systems generate chlorine dioxide safely onsite and with the Lutz-Jesco measurement and control technology, users have a complete disinfection system which will continue to operate reliably for years as a closed system.

Lutz-Jesco product applications include animal husbandry, aquariums and drinking water supplies within sports facilities (showers).
