Availablity of a stable, chlorine free chlorine dioxide (ClO2) shipped as ready to use 3000 ppm solution in ultra pure water is finding use as a disinfectant without damage to membranes. Where most biocides will not penetrate biofilms, ClO2 exist as a non-ionic dissolved gas that penetrates and destroys biofilm. It permeates membranes disinfecting the Feed, Permeate, Concentrate as well as the entire membrane structure. Dosed continously it prevents biofouling of of membranes, filters, piping and other wetted surfaces.
