What is Genclean AOP Disinfection?

What is Advanced Oxidation Disinfection?
In an overview, AOP disinfection is a specific treatment process designed to oxidize, disinfect, and remove organic and certain inorganic contaminants from water and wastewater through the generation of hydroxyl radical (OH) and other specific compounds.
What is Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP)?

ORP stands for oxidation reduction potential or redox potential. Basically, it is an indication of the purity of the water and its capacity to neutralize contaminants & organisms based on the potential to oxidize these organisms and contaminants.

An ORP controller is designed and engineered to give an immediate reading of the quality of the water and will provide a record of its readings via an integrated memory device.

The reaction time of an advanced oxidation disinfection process is rapid and encompasses many chemical reactions, therefore, concentration, not contact time is the foundation for system design.

Therefore, oxidation reaction tanks are sized accordingly to allow for recirculation and reintroduction of Genclean to optimize treatment concentration in the reaction tank.

The readings on an ORP system controller can and shall be cross referenced and checked from time to time by using a suitable portable ORP meter or test strip kits to confirm the accuracy of the readings provided by the ORP controller.

What is Genclean AOP Disinfection solutions and how do they compare to other oxidants?

Genclean technology is a NSF certified non-toxic, advanced oxidation (AOP) liquid formula of minerals chelated with oxygen and stabilized in an aqueous water solution. It is a suitable option in industries and applications requiring a solution to challenging situations where highly effective disinfection, oxidation and sanitization is required.

It has 2x the oxidation capability of chlorine (bleach) and almost 1.5x the oxidation capability of hydrogen peroxide, ozone, and similar non chlorine solutions as measured by oxidation reduction potential (ORP) or redox potential on an electrochemical potential chart.

Genclean is a product of a chemistry that is effective in a wide pH range. It does not require the activation of an external catalyst which is typically required in conventional advanced oxidation treatment processes.

This solution provides the benefits of advanced oxidation plus residual protection to prevent recontamination, and it does not require a large capital investment or highly trained technicians.

How does Genclean AOP Disinfection work?

Genclean works through the creation of molecules called hydroxyl radicals in combination with large amounts of other molecules including super oxides, reactive oxygen, among others to oxidize, disinfect, and sanitize drinking water & wastewater streams for both commercial/industrial clients and water utilities.

Hydroxyl radical molecules non-selectively react with organic pollutants in the water source through four or more different modes of attack, simultaneously oxidizing and breaking apart these organic contaminant molecules internally.

Due to the generation and regeneration of these reactive hydroxyl molecules and other oxidizing molecules without the addition of external catalyst systems, chemicals or compounds, Genclean is inherently, safer, more efficient, and scalable. It is also can support residual disinfection protection.

How is it injected into a water or wastewater stream and what is ORP and how is it measured?

Genclean products are typically injected into a drinking or wastewater stream through the use of a GWT liquid chemical feed pump system with an integrated pH/ORP water treatment controller.

This system controller measures and monitors the pH and ORP values in the water source to maintain a specific ORP range for the specific application. A chemical feed pump doses the Genclean chemical into the water source typically by using an inline static mixer or other suitable mixing device to maintain the suitable ORP values on a continuous basis for organic, microbial oxidation & disinfection or both.
