Active Catalytic Oxidation
Reduce chlorine consumption
Replace chlorine in private pools
Protect chlorine from UV & sunlight
Reduce chlorine reaction products from UV and sunlight
Make all surfaces in contact with the water self cleaning
Coagulate dissolved organics & and helps remove ammonium
Chlorine disinfects water by chemical oxidation unfortunately chlorine combines with organic matter to form chemicals such as chloroform and cyanogen
chloride. Chlorine also combines with ammonium and proteins to form organo-chloramines and inorganic chloramines such a trichloramine. Most of the chlorine
reaction products are toxic to varying degrees and should be avoided or minimized when possible. There are chlorine free products available for private pools,
but it is important to understand that the chlorine free products should not be considered for public facilities, leisure centres or private clubs because of the risk
from horizontal transmission of pathogenic organisms between the bathers.
ACO may be used as a chlorine free product in private pools, or it may be used in combination with chlorine in private or public pools to reduce chlorine
demand. The production of some chlorine by-products such as THM`s is accelerated by Ultra Violet UV light, direct sunlight or even with light shining through
the windows of an indoor pool. ACO shields the water and chlorine from short wavelength UV light, so the pools use much less chlorine and generate fewer
chlorine reaction products.
What is ACO?
ACO active catalytic oxidation is a blend of poly-silicates and transition metal oxide nano-particle
