During the classic pre-rinse in cleaning processes, Whereas, the surfaces are rinsed to remove product residues on one hand and to improve the cleaning effect of the subsequent cleaning procedure with detergent on the other hand. ClO2 disinfects the water used and also has a storage effect that can improve the hygienic surrounding.
