ACL and Sodium Chlorite

 

ACL® Chlorinated Isocyanurates

Chlorinated isocyanurates are leading dry sanitizers for residential swimming pools and spas, effectively eliminating germs and algae. Their disinfection properties make them an important component of dishwashing detergents and industrial water treatment products. OxyChem's chlorinated isocyanurates are also approved for routine potable water chlorination.

These products are characterized by their available chlorine content. Their different solubilities and physical forms allow for the selection of the best product for each application.


  • ACL 90 PLUS is OxyChem's name for trichloroisocyanuric acid (also named trichloro-s-triazinetrione). This product contains a minimum of 90 percent available chlorine and is available in either granular or tablet form.

  • ACL 60 is OxyChem's name for sodium dichloroisocyanurate (sodium dichloro-s-triazinetrione) and contains a minimum of 62 percent available chlorine. It is available as a dry granular product.

  • ACL 56 is OxyChem's name for sodium dichloroisocyanurate dihydrate and contains about 56 percent available chlorine. It is available as a dry granular product.

OxyChem markets its chlorinated isocyanurate products under the following trademarks:

  • ACL chlorinating compositions are effective, economical disinfectants, germicides and algicides for sanitizing swimming pools and spas. They are also used for formulation of cleaners and sanitizers.

  • Towerbrom® and Towerchlor® microbicides are halogenated isocyanurate compositions for controlling biofouling in cooling waters and other industrial water treatment applications.

  • ACL disinfecting granules and tablets are EPA registered and NSF/ANSI certified dry products for routine chlorination of drinking water and wastewater.
