Paper Manufacturing

Chlorine dioxide is used very effectively as a slimicide and oxidizer for microbiological control on the wet end of paper machines. It controls microorganisms and offensive odors that may adversely affect the quality of the finished product. Additional benefits of chlorine dioxide as a wet-end slimicide/biocide include lower corrosion rates on paper machine metallurgy, extended paper machine runs, reduced frequency of boil outs of stock chests and a more cost effective microbiological control program.
