Oxine Water Systems (pdf)

For Treatment of Industrial Water Systems

OXINE is the most effective, fast-acting, broad-spectrum antimicrobial available.

oxone-water-system-1OXINE is a highly refined blend of oxychloro species containing purified sodium chlorite.  When activated, chlorine dioxide is produced, greatly enhancing Oxine ’s antimicrobial  activity. Within the water treatment industry, OXINE displays broad spectrum antimicrobial  activity, proven effective against Legionella, E. Coli O157:H7, Salmonella, Aspergillus, Listeria, Staphylococcus and Pseudomonas, among others. This product is especially suited for the removal and subsequent control of biofilm. OXINE is EPA registered and is organically approved through Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) and possesses a myriad of other approvals.

OXINE has been shown to be more effective than other common sanitizers, including quaternary ammonia, Iodophors, Peracetic acid, and sodium hypochlorite (chlorine). OXINE provides a comprehensive antimicrobial intervention program.




  • Ultra high antimicrobial activity
  • Efficient biofilm control
  • Very effective in control of sessile organisms
  • Enhanced heat exchange capability
  • Low corrosion potential at use concentrations
  • Effective over a broad pH range (1-10)
  • Reduces total suspended solids
  • Highly soluble – Does not disassociate in water
  • Selective reactivity-resists neutralization from organic load
  • Does not react readily with: Alkanes, Alkenes, Alkynes, Alcohols, Glycols, Aldehydes, Ketones, Ethers, Primary Amines or Acids
  • Environmentally safe
  • Does not produce chloramines or THMs
  • Breaks down into table salt


OXINE requires activation for on-site generation of chlorine dioxide. Activation involves lowering the pH of the concentrate with any GRAS acid. Activation may be accomplished manually in low volume as batch applications; or with BCI’s hands-free, cost efficient AANE™ unit, the Wall Mount Activation System™, or the on-line activation system OLAS™, which combines activation with injection into water streams.
