Safe Chlorine Dioxide Production

RelīOx – 21st Century Chlorine Dioxide Generation Technology

RelīOx Technology represents a total break from all past methods used to produce liquid Chlorine Dioxide.

RelīOx technology takes advantage of a simple and safe process to bring this “Gold-Standard” chemical to your company’s arsenal.

No shipping and storing of tanks of hazardous or volatile chemicals. No monitoring of complicated system controls. No berms to build. No mixing of powders or expensive tablets. No electrodes to monitor and replace. No waiting. No need to waste employee time in serial dilutions of concentrated chlorine dioxide produced by inflexible or “one-size-fits-all” systems

RelīOx provides “custom tailored chlorine dioxide”: Just the way you want it every time.

About ClO2

Chlorine Dioxide Explained

ClO2 is one of the oldest known chemical compounds. It was discovered during the Napoleonic Wars. No practical method of making it was developed until early in the 20th Century. At this time other chemicals were created that made large scale Chlorine Dioxide generation practical.

By either pumping Chlorine gas through one of these new chemicals or by mixing one of these chemicals with a strong acid (sulfuric, hydrochloric, etc.), Chlorine Dioxide could be produced.

The majority of ClO2 is still produced using variants of these initial methods. They are still used to produce most of the Chlorine Dioxide that is used in municipal water and wastewater treatment and in the processing of paper pulp. (It is noteworthy that the shift from Chlorine to Chlorine Dioxide was instrumental in virtually eliminating the production of Dioxin by paper mills.)

Notice the confusing similarity of the names of the two chemicals mentioned above. It is important to an understanding of Chlorine Dioxide to recognize that there is no relationship between the two chemicals any more than there is between Carbon (a solid material) and Carbon Dioxide (a gas).

For RelīOx’ purpose we will be discussing only the properties of Chlorine Dioxide that apply to advanced chemical research and the remediation of extreme odors from the human environment.

RelīOx™ Chlorine Dioxide

21st Century Chemistry

RelīOx replaces the production of Chlorine Dioxide through the dangerous and obsolete, chemical mixing processes that have been in use since the 1940s. (About when the vacuum tube became common place for radios)

RelīOx uses a single-step, solid phase process. No acids, no Chlorine gas. (This advance in technology is similar to the invention of the transistor for radio)

The old processes deliver a type of Chlorine Dioxide that are low in pH and very concentrated. (Hazardous, corrosive or suitable only for large scale industrial facilities)

RelīOx technology delivers only pH neutral Chlorine Dioxide. (Non-hazardous, non-corrosive)

RelīOx products deliver CIO2 conveniently, immediately & safely, at neutral pH, in precise amounts, wherever & whenever needed!

THE RelīOx ADVANTAGE: Unlike other CIO2 products, no dangerous chemicals are used in production of RelīOx ClO2. The single dangerous chemical use is consumed in the Company’s factory, with no environmental harm.

RelīOx offers the only convenient, immediately available, on-demand ClO2

RelīOx creates no persistent or destructive by-products!

RelīOx produces sustainable, environmentally friendly, pH-neutral ClO2

All RelīOx products have customizable output concentrations

Based on our core technology products are easily scaled up to meet customer desired output rates
RelīOx products can be stored for extended periods due to their safe, stable binary components

About ClO2

Why Does Chlorine Dioxide Production Matter?

Chlorine Dioxide or ClO2 is the best liquid product for extreme odor control available.

RelīO overcomes all past problems with producing ClO2 and does a better job of eliminating the strongest odors while presenting little harm to your personnel, equipment or facilities.

The RelīOx Process is a binary system composed of:

  1. A container (cartridge) of proprietary RelīOx media that functions as a Chemical Capacitor: and;
  2. A specifically formulated dilute (not dangerous) feed chemical.

When ClO2 is desired, the feed chemical is passed through the cartridge, resulting in a stream of pH neutral Chlorine Dioxide that has been pre-set to the exact user desired concentration.

ClO2 can be produced as desired, in batches, in a stop/start mode or in a continuous flow.

In terms of scalability, the RelīOx Process can generate quantities from 5mL to 100s of liters.

RelīOx capacitor media can be recharged multiple times using a third proprietary chemical named ReNeu. Making the process long term sustainable as well as being environmentally friendly.

All of our chemicals have long term storage stability.

Concentration is important. Industrial uses of ClO2 can reach 5 to 15,000 parts per million (ppm) of ClO2 dissolved in water. While this is economical for a municipal water treatment process or a pulp bleaching operation, where millions of gallons of water are being treated, concentrations that high are highly dangerous to people.

In the area of Odor control, it has been found that much, much lower concentrations are still extremely effective. Concentrations or strengths below 100ppm are usually adequate to destroy odors. RelīOx products can be provided in a variety of concentrations, with few odors requiring even 300-500ppm for destruction.

DESCRIPTION OF CORE TECHNOLOGY:

RelīOx ClO2 generators are based on a proprietary, safe chemical generation process. The heart of RelīOx technology is a stable, dry, bead-like media, with a capacity to oxidize a precursor liquid chemical to produce pH neutral Chlorine Dioxide with NO dangerous chemicals in the process and NO waiting.

RelīOx produces ready­-to-use Chlorine Dioxide, whenever – and wherever – needed!

RelīOx is designed with user safety and the safety of the environment in mind. We will be registering all products under accepted standards for “green” labeling.
