VigorOx® WWT II is a strong chemical disinfectant for use in wastewater treatment that can replace chlorine or UV disinfection. VigorOx WWT II, a peracetic acid-based formulation, is an equilibrium mixture of acetic acid (vinegar), hydrogen peroxide and water. The resulting solution contains a mix of 15% peracetic acid (PAA) and 23% hydrogen peroxide.
The PAA molecule is a strong oxidant that, similar to chlorine, will attack and kill pathogenic organisms of concern in wastewater treatment such as E-coli, fecal coliforms and Enterococci by disruption of the cell membrane.
VigorOx WWT II is offered as a complete solution including chemical supply; storage, feed and control equipment; and installation, startup and maintenance services. This system minimizes or eliminates capital expenses associated with replacing chlorination with alternative disinfection technologies.
VigorOx WWT II has several other attributes that make it desirable as a wastewater disinfectant, including its ease of operation, lower toxicity to aquatic life, low capital costs, efficacy against a broad range of pathogens and rapid disinfection rate.
VigorOx WWTII is a highly effective biocide demonstrating superior microbial reductions of fecal coliform compared to gaseous chlorine or bleach at lower use rates and shorter contact times, producing no chlorinated by-products (THMs).
