Purogene® an effective, fast acting, broad-spectrum antimicrobial available for airline water disinfection.

Purogene is a highly refined blend of oxychloro species containing purified sodium chlorite which provides a comprehensive antimicrobial intervention program. 



  • Broad spectrum antimicrobial activity
  • Effective over a broad pH range (1-10)
  • Low corrosion potential at use concentrations
  • No significant chlorinate or trihalomethane formation
  • Long lasting bacteriostatic activity
  • No effect on organoleptic properties
  • Economical to use
  • Extends the life on-board water heating and coffee making equipment
  • Maintains lavatory systems free of sludge and organic build-up
  • Can be used with automated delivery systems
  • Approved for use by most major airframe manufacturers

When Purogene is activated, chlorine dioxide is produced, greatly enhancing the antimicrobial activity. Purogene displays broad spectrum antimicrobial activity, proven effective against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus. This product is especially suited for the removal and subsequent control of biofilm.

Water Tank Disinfection

  1. Drain water storage tank
  2. Inspecct tank for foreign materials and sediment
  3. Clean out and flush tank with clean, potable water
  4. For every 50 gallons of disinfection solution, mix the following:
    1. 16 fluid ounces of Purogene
    2. 2 ounces of citric acid
    3. Mix and allow 5 minutes for activation to occur
    4. Dilute activated concentrate with two gallons of clean, potable water
  5. Fill aircraft water tank
  6. Open all water discharge ports for a short time to allow the treatment solution to reach and flow through these ports
  7. Close ports and allow treatment solution to stand for one hour
  8. Drain solution from tank. DO NOT FLUSH TANK
  9. Refill tank with potable water treated with 5ppm Purogene    

This procedure can be automated using BCI's delivery systems.


These systems provide hands-free activation and dosing of Purogene. Three configurations of the PASS System are available.

  1. Potable Water Treatment – This unit combines Purogene® and activator at the appropriate ratio for potable water treatment (5 ppm)
  2. Water Tank Disinfection – This unit combines Purogene® and activator at the appropriate ratio for water tank disinfection (50 – 100 ppm)
