Frequently Asked Questions
How are your products different from other chlorine dioxide?
SMTs ultra-pure ClO₂ is generated via our patented membrane system. A proprietary membrane contains the precursor chemistry necessary to generate chlorine dioxide. When that “micro-reactor” is added to water, the membrane allows only water vapor to pass through. That water vapor condenses inside the reactor and fuels the chemical reaction, which creates the ClO₂ gas molecule. Only that gas molecule is allowed to pass out of the micro-reactor into the water, which gives us a 99.9% pure solution with a neutral pH.
Are you products EPA-registered?
Yes, our Selectrocide line of products have been tested according to current guidelines, and results verified by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Our product is classified as a hospital disinfectant, which can also be used to sanitize and deodorize.
