Even in the best of times, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the surfaces we touch are all periodically in need of the attention of sanitizing and disinfection solutions. These are the areas of expertise that Dr. Chloro brings to dozens upon dozens of marketplaces. Ensuring the bio-security of our meat, dairy, fruit and vegetable food chain; purifying the water for animals, humans and plants; ensuring the elimination of biofilm from within waterlines, and off of surfaces so that bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi and other pathogens may be removed and destroyed is what Dr. Chloro can deliver with an unparalleled expertise.

What is Dr. Chloro?

Dr. Chloro is a water disinfectant, contains Chlorine dioxide. Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is a synthetic, green-yellowish gas with a chlorine-like, irritating odor. Chlorine dioxide is very different from elementary chlorine, both in its chemical structure as in its behavior. Chlorine dioxide is a small, volatile and very strong molecule. In diluted, watery solutions chlorine dioxide is a free radical. At high concentrations it reacts strongly with reducing agents. Chlorine dioxide is an unstable gas that dissociates into chlorine gas (Cl2), oxygen gas (O2) and heat. When chlorine dioxide is photo-oxidized by sunlight, it falls apart. The end-products of chlorine dioxide reactions are chloride (Cl–), chlorite (ClO–) and chlorate (ClO3–). At –59°C, solid chlorine dioxide becomes a reddish liquid. At 11°C chlorine dioxide turns into gas. Chlorine dioxide is 2,4 times denser than air. As a liquid chlorine dioxide has a bigger density than water.


Some of the many reasons for choosing chlorine dioxide:

Broad spectrum antimicrobial efficacy. (Bacteria, Virus, etc…).

Better C xT record over a wider pH range.(Contact time).

No immunity building by micro organisms;-Biofilm Removal.

Helps in preventing scale formation.

Highly selective oxidizer, does not hydrolyze in water(free radical), no building of toxic or carcinogenic halogenated disinfection by-products(THM’s, HAA’s);

The only molecule which exists as monomeric free radical with oxidation state of 4+

Superb oxidant for iron, manganese, nitrite, phenols and hydrogen sulfide;

Non corrosive at user level concentration;

Improved aesthetics (i.e.taste, odor and color control)


Effective and full elimination of all known in water common microorganisms, i.e. bacteria (incl. Gardia, legionella), viruses (incl. hepatitis, anthrax), protozoan (incl. Crypto and Giardia), yeast, fungi, algae and cysts;

  • Stronger, efficacious and faster disinfection capacity.

  • 260% more disinfection power compared to chlorine.

  • 10 times more oxidizing power compared to chlorine.

  • Long lasting residual disinfection capacity throughout water systems

  • (up to 24-48 hours, chlorine only 2-6 hours).

  • Steady bactericidal action within a broad pH bandwidth (pH 4-10).

  • No resistance building by microorganisms.

  • Higher efficiency in the removal of iron and managese compounds.

  • Extensive kinetic half time.


  • Less chemistry is required to achieve an optimized Disinfection result.

  • High material tolerance as Dr. Chloro is not corrosive => less maintenance.

  • No construction modifications or certifications.

  • No fire proof facilities.

  • No specialist staff required.

  • Numerous indirect cost savings as many operational costs incurred by theuse of chlorine are eliminated.

  • Three years shelf life guaranteed in the unopened package.

  • A yield of > 99% (1000 liter solution = 1000 liter active substance).

  • No change to plant facilities, expect the installation of a dosage unit andits maintance.

  • And last but not least, the value of health cannot be expressed in money!


  • Hardly disinfection by-products in the stock solution.

  • Less sewage load by strong decrease in building of organic halogen combinations, provides THM control.

  • High operational safety.

  • No adverse taste and odour effects in the disinfected water.

  • Bounded chlorine building is strongly suppressed.

  • Disinfection does not need to cost the earth!
