USP-OC31 is a chlorite-based oxidant blend that is designed to efficiently and rapidly oxidize hydrogen sulfide and organic odors in wastewater collection systems, treatment plants (headworks, thickeners, dewatering operations) and industrial wastewaters. USP-OC31 is environmentallyfriendly and does not form chlorinated by-products, with the end-product being table salt (sodium chloride).
USP-OC31 Properties & Dosing
USP-OC31’s main active ingredient, sodium chlorite (NaClO2), is a fast-reacting oxidant (seconds) that provides immediate control of hydrogen sulfide and many other organic odors in collection systems, treatment plants and industrial wastewaters, particularly in solids processing operations. Unlike hypochlorite, USP-OC31 does not react with ammonia and does not form chlorinated organics. USP- OC31 oxidizes hydrogen sulfide according to the following equation…
