Water Disinfection

Osorno offers customized solutions for water disinfection in a variety of water and wastewater applications. We offer a complete solution, beginning from the initial inquiry through to installation and maintenance of a treatment system.

Potable Water

Disinfection of Drinking Water remains one of the world’s challenges in the 21st Century. Delivery of clean potable water becomes more difficult with the steadily growing world population. Despite the many ways to disinfect potable water, only two of them provide a measurable residual – chlorine and chlorine dioxide. Chlorine dioxide provides many advantages over the chlorination process.

Hospital Water

Disinfection of Hospital Water is very important for prevention of infection spread and hospitals must pay particular attention to this issue. There are two types of disinfection processes to consider: shock disinfection of all water distribution systems (cold, hot and toilet flush water) and continual disinfection during hospital operation. In both cases, appropriate disinfection is a critical issue, because hospitals are designed for sick people with compromised immune systems. The best disinfectant for treating hospital water is chlorine dioxide, because process provides a measurable residual, and is very efficient against bacteria, protozoa, viruses, and super bugs.

Wastewater Disinfection

Disinfection of Wastewater is important as a first line of defense against waterborne infections. Effluent disinfection together with proper treatment is one of the barriers in multi-barrier approaches for delivery of hygienically clean drinking water.

Disinfection of Swimming Pools

Swimming Pool Disinfection is critical for public pools, and highly recommended for private pools. Without proper disinfection, swimming pools can become carriers of bacterial infections, and spread diseases caused by protozoa (single cell organisms) and fungi. Chlorination – a commonly used pool disinfection process is not efficient against protozoa and fungus. Chlorine dioxide offers broader protection against bacteria, protozoa and fungi. Application of both disinfectants should be careful, because each of them has pros and cons.

Lagoon Water Disinfection

Lagoon Disinfection becomes critical when coliform counts exceed regulatory values prior to lagoon discharge. With growing requirements for wastewater treatment processes, disinfection of lagoon effluent may become a mandatory step.
