Electrochlorination

Home > Applications and Solutions > Electrochlorination

Electrochlorination is the process of using salt, water and electricity to produce a low strength, low pH Sodium Hypochlorite solution directly on site.

When it comes to disinfecting water safely, chlorine is the most commonly used chemical. It is a powerful bactericide and also leaves a residual disinfectant, protecting users further along the supply chain.

The use of chlorine in the form of gas is common, as is commercial hypochlorite solution.

There is however another way: electrochlorination. This method is often used by water companies, but there is no reason it cannot also be done on a smaller scale.

An advantage of electrochlorination is that it can be produced using no other ingredients other than common salt, electricity and water. This negates the need to store chemicals and eliminates the potential dangers of chlorine gas.

Is electrochlorination the best option for your particular application? Prodose has installed electrochlorination systems in over 100 projects worldwide during the last five years, so we have a lot of experience to draw upon. Our experts can advise you on the best approach for your application.

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.

Electrochlorination

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.

Chlorine Dioxide Generators

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 & Control

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.
