Potable Water on-site purification
MIOX Corporation has extensive experience in treating municipal drinking water, ranging from rural communities to large cities.
The improved safety offered by on-site chlorine generation often initiates interest in the MIOX technology. Water treatment plants are sometimes located in public areas, near schools or libraries, across from convenience stores, or even in the middle of residential neighborhoods. The MIOX system uses only salt, water, and power to generate a dilute disinfectant on site. This on-site generation eliminates the need to store and transport hazardous chlorine gas or bulk hypochlorite (bleach), removing the potential for accidents and protecting not only the water plant operators but also neighboring homes and businesses from exposure to hazardous chlorine.
In addition, the MIOX mixed-oxidant technology can also improve the quality of the drinking water, by eliminating biogrowth within the pipelines, reducing the formation of disinfection by-products (DBPs), improving the durability of the protective disinfectant residual that prevents recontamination in the lines, and improving the taste and odor of the water. This is all accomplished with a system that operators report as being easy to maintain and costing less than traditional chlorine alternatives.
Other side benefits of the MIOX technology in drinking water applications include:
- Microflocculation (reduction of both final turbidity and coagulant chemical doses)
- Iron bacteria control
- Oxidation of iron and manganese
- Oxidation of sulfides
- Breakpoint reaction at low chlorine to nitrogen ratios
