Technology Overview

MIOX on-site generators produce chlorine-based disinfectants when a solution of sodium chloride (salt + water) is passed through an electrolytic cell. This process converts the chloride ions present in the solution to sodium hypochlorite.

Mixed Oxidant Solution
Sodium Hypochlorite

MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) systems also convert some of the oxygen in the water molecule into hydrogen peroxide. This combination of sodium hypochlorite and hydrogen peroxide creates a unique chemistry that has many proven operational benefits in drinking water applications.

How it Works

MIOX systems are suitable for use in both surface and groundwater treatment plants in both pre-treatment and final disinfection applications.

A Case Study

In 2002, the City of West Point switched from chlorine gas to an on-site chemical generator not manufactured by MIOX. This new system was very maintenance intensive. When it came time to replace this unit, city staff reviewed all other technologies to address biofilm, chlorine residual and TTHM formation.
