In order to ensure that drinking water is safe and free from bacteria and pathogens, it is essential that it be disinfected before it reaches the end user.
Disinfection is defined as the killing or deactivation of any microorganisms that are present in the water.
Worldwide, the most common method of disinfecting drinking water is the addition of chlorine-based compounds. These are used due to their effectiveness in neutralising bacteria and also because they create a residual effect. Water with a residual disinfectant stays safe for longer as it passes through the distribution system.
Prodose has its origins in the water sector and we have worked with some of the largest water utility providers in the world. Our engineers have direct experience of working inside water companies. This gives us a comprehensive understanding of all the issues surrounding the reliable supply of clean drinking water.

Electrochlorination is the process of using salt, water and electricity to produce a low pH Sodium Hypochlorite solution directly on site. It is highly efficient because the system can respond to the levels of free chlorine in the water and apply dosing only when required.
Our range of AMPRO electrochlorinators are ideal for many of these applications and come with a full after sales support package. These machines are ideal for small footprint systems and have features such as integral hydrogen degassing, making them safer for installation by third parties.
Our advice is impartial, and we won’t advise a course of action or recommend a piece of equipment unless we know it offers a genuine benefit to your process.
Chlorine dioxide is, quite simply, a more powerful oxidising agent than chlorine in every way. It works better as a disinfectant and has the advantage of also breaking down odours.
If you think a Chlorine Dioxide generator might be the best way to go, it is worth getting the benefit of our advice first. We are not on commission and have no interest in selling devices unless they are the most appropriate and effective option for your particular process.
Instrumentation and controllers are fundamental to our ability to control water treatment processes. It is through the use of reliable and accurate instrumentation that monitors key parameters within the water that we are able to provide information back to the controllers that in turn govern the process.
With a range of single parameter and multi-parameter controllers Prodose are able to supply instrumentation and control systems to meet the most difficult of disinfection control applications.
