Next-generation water treatment systems can reduce a customer’s carbon footprint and salt consumption by as much as 20 percent, according to manufacturer De Nora Water Technologies.
De Nora Water Technologies’ new generation of ClorTec on-site sodium hypochlorite systems feature simplified instrumentation and a new rack design for ease of operation and maintenance. Each of the systems’ cells is now vented for safe, efficient operation.
ClorTec systems generate a 0.8 percent sodium hypochlorite disinfection solution, a chlorine equivalent, using only salt, water and electricity. ClorTec units range in capacity from up to 1 kg/day or 2 lb/day to 1,360-plus kg/day or 3,000-plus lb/day. To meet varying application-specific conditions, the ClorTec units are available as component-based or skid-based packaged systems.
On-site sodium hypochlorite generation is a cost-effective, reliable and safe alternative to disinfection using chlorine gas or bulk sodium hypochlorite. On-site generated sodium hypochlorite is stable and easy to feed. Additionally, less chlorine is released to the atmosphere because of better mixing and retention in the treated water. The systems reduce the production of disinfection byproducts, helping to provide water that is free of pathogens and safe to drink.
