Chlorine Dioxide

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

OXINE® is a highly refined blend of oxychloro species containing purified sodium chlorite. When activated, chlorine dioxide is produced, greatly enhancing OXINE®’s antimicrobial activity. With applications in the food processing and water treatment industries. 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 organically approved through Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) and possesses a myriad of other approvals.


Primary uses in Food Processing Plants, Dairies, Breweries and Beverage Plants are:

  • No-rinse sanitation of all food contact surfaces
  • CIP sanitizing of processing lines
  • Water additive to pasteurizers, bottle warmers and coolers
  • Water systems disinfectant for biofilm removal and control
  • Bacterial, mold and odor control throughout the facility
  • Sanitation of cold rooms, freezers and spirals
  • Microbial control in sweet water & recirculating cooling water systems
  • Sanitation of filler head assemblies
  • Deodorization of rendering areas
  • Footbath and door spray bacteriostat
  • Sanitation of tank trucks and rail tankers
  • Antimicrobial additive for all compatible conveyor and chain lubricants
  • Disinfection of condensate pans and drip lines
    Fruit and Vegetable Processing
  • Flume water for treatment for bacteria, slime and odor control.
  • Sanitizing rinse
    Stored Portable Water Treatment

Use Procedure

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.
