CHLORINE DIOXIDE DETECTION BADGES
DETECT CHLORINE DIOXIDE ON THE JOB SITE
Chlorine dioxide is a yellow to reddish-yellow gas with an unpleasant odor similar to chlorine. It is used in the purification of water, for disinfection in the food industry, and in a variety of industrial applications. Exposure to chlorine dioxide may be highly irritating to the skin and mucous membranes of the respiratory tract and continued exposure may cause pulmonary edema.
SafeAir Chlorine / Chlorine Dioxide badges are simple, cost-effective, industry-proven solutions for chlorine dioxide detection in the workplace. They use colorimetric technology (i.e. color change) to provide immediate indication when chlorine dioxide gas is present. No need for lab analysis or electronic reader.

SafeAir Chlorine & Chlorine Dioxide Badge (Part#: 382003)
SafeAir Chlorine & Chlorine Dioxide badges are dual-purpose sensors made to provide an immediate visual indication of exposure to chlorine and/or chlorine dioxide gas. The color change may appear on the front if chlorine is present and/or on the backside of the badge if chlorine dioxide is present; depending upon the level of exposure of the two contaminants. The intensity of the color change is proportional to the exposure dose. SafeAir Chlorine & Chlorine Dioxide badges are a simple, cost-effective solution for chlorine & chlorine dioxide detection in the workplace.

– Frequently Asked Questions –
Why does the SafeAir chlorine / chlorine dioxide badge detect both chlorine and chlorine dioxide?
When chlorine dioxide is generated, chlorine may not be completely converted to chlorine dioxide. The SafeAir badge allows the user to know if both chlorine and chlorine dioxide are present.
Where is chlorine dioxide used?
Chlorine is an important chemical widely used in the production of safe drinking water. It is also used extensively in the production of paper products, dyestuffs, textiles, petroleum products and chlorinated solvents.
Chlorine dioxide gas is used for disinfection of food and food-handling facilities, and for decontamination of equipment and facilities. It is also used in the purification of water, the tanning and de-tanning of leather, the bleaching of cellulose, flour, leather, fats and textiles, as well as in the paper and pulp industry.
What are the health effects of chlorine dioxide exposure?
Chlorine Dioxide exposure may be highly irritating to the skin and mucous membranes of the respiratory tract and may cause pulmonary edema (abnormal fluid buildup in the lungs).
What are the exposure limits for chlorine dioxide?
OSHA and NIOSH exposure limit for chlorine dioxide is 0.1 ppm (TWA).
How does a SafeAir chlorine/ chlorine dioxide badge change color?
A color-forming reaction occurs when chlorine and/or chlorine dioxide reacts with the targeted proprietary indicator layer in the SafeAir chlorine & chlorine dioxide detector badge.
