Besides its commitment to microbial control, Lonza Water Care is deeply involved in the development of sustainable technologies.
Introducing BlueSenseTM, an innovative solution, producing sanitizing disinfecting agents using the chloride ions naturally present in the water. Through a proprietary and patented process these ions are turned into powerful disinfectants, either hypochlorous acid or chlorine dioxide.
These two compounds are amongst the strongest oxidizers and efficient on a very broad spectrum of micro-organisms (eg. bacteria, fungi, viruses, yeasts, protozoa) which can be found in untreated water.
BlueSenseTM technology only requires a low voltage supply and doesn’t need
any chemical precursors to generate disinfectants.
A minimum of 20 ppm chlorides in the water to be
treated is necessary to ensure a proper generation of hypochlorous acid or of
For waters with lower concentration, brine production equipment can be optionally proposed by BlueSenseTM.
Production of chlorinating agent or chlorine dioxide can be adapted to the
flow rate, to the water chemistry and characteristics for multiple purposes and
applications such as:
BlueSenseTM offers a large range of solutions from 0.1 to 10 m3/h for:
- Point of use and under-the-sink units
- Water dispensers and coolers
- Private wells
- Small water supplies
- Boosting chlorination stations
- Treatment of
water towers (ensures a chlorine residual during storage)
Emergency Water Supply
BlueSenseTM has also developed a specific range to enable rapid deployment of autonomous drinking water sanitation equipment for:
- Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO)
Its easy implementation
and commissioning allows a quick supply of drinking water for emergency relief.
BlueSenseTM Oximobi range can treat small volumes
up to 3 m3/h from almost every source of fresh water and also comes in
complement of reverse osmosis processes (desalination) to provide an oxidizer
residual and avoid re-contamination.
Water onboard ships. Water onboard maritime
transport or cruise line ships has to be disinfected to avoid any risk of
contamination and health problems for crews and passengers. It is
generally stored in large tanks and maintaining a residual of disinfectant is
BlueSenseTM specific solution provides a reliable
treatment based on continuous monitoring of the active chlorine level through a
side-stream equipment, compact and easy to maintain.
Based on years of returns of experience, BlueSenseTM is proposing animal drinking and process water treatment to the agricultural industry.
OXAGRI systems are successfully installed on flower bulbs preservation and
post-harvest water systems, providing high quantities of hypochlorous acid to
treat large volumes of water and avoid contamination of final products
(effective on bacteria, mold, fungi, invertebrates such as nematodes or flies).
Industrial Water and HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning)
Cooling and hot water systems
are subject to contamination, especially by Legionella pneumophila.
BlueSenseTM offers turn-key
solutions, to be implemented in-line on existing infrastructure to mitigate the
biofilm formation and, at the same time, ensure a residual of oxidizer in the
BlueSenseTM is benefiting
from numerous references in clinics, hospitals and for district cooling.
