Introduction

Electrochlorination is a simple and proven technology to convert ordinary salt water [or brine or seawater] into Sodium Hypochlorite by means of Electrolysis. It is produced and applied on-site. The device which uses this technology is named as Electrochlorinator or Onsite Hypo Generator. Sodium Hypochlorite is universally accepted for combating slime, algae and other Bio-organisms in Water. The most important aspect of Sodium Hypochlorite usage is its economy and effectiveness in killing bio-organisms thereby disinfecting water. Electrochlorinators find application where Chlorine is not readily available or where operation with chlorine is not acceptable. Electrochlorinators therefore, find application in Drinking Water Treatment, Cooling Water Treatment, Waste Water Treatment, Bleaching, Pharmaceutical formulations and other industrial applications. The Industries that benefit includes Chemicals & Fertilizers, Refineries, Petrochemicals, Power Stations, Steel Plants, Cement Plants, Pharmaceutical Industries, Pesticide Industries, Food Industries, Dairy Industries, Textiles, Paper & Pulp Industries, Sugar Plants, Municipalities, Corporations, Townships, Water Boards, Theme Parks, Hotels, Apartment Complexes, Aqua culture Units, Bottling Plants, Swimming Pools, Hospitals etc. PERFECT CHLORO SYSTEM markets a wide range of Chlorination Equipments & related accessories to cater to this requirement. Depending upon the mode of operation, Electrochlorinators are classified into two types namely Batch Production Electrochlorinators with capacity ranging from 15 gms/hr to 500 gms/hr and Continuous Production Electrochlorinators with capacity ranging from 15 gms/hr to 15 kgs/hr.

Batch Production

Description

Batch Production Electro chlorinators are designed for small capacities and are available from 15 gms/hr to capacity of 500 gms/hr chlorine equivalent, using our unique Multimetallic Oxides Titanium Nobel Anodes and Electrochemical Process. Production of Sodium Hypochlorite is completed in a batch of every 8 hours, to concentration of around 6-8 gms/litre.

Basic System Components

Electrolyser Cell, Rectifier, Storage Tank and Dosing Pump.

Operation

A metered amount of water is mixed with common salt to form brine of required concentration [or Seawater is used]. This is the electrolyte used in the process. Electrolyser Cells are dipped in this measured quantity of Brine Solution, contained in a specially made FRP Tank [Bisphenol Resin]. These cells are connected to a rectifier, which converts Alternate current to Direct Current. When DC Current passes through these Titanium Anodes with MMO Coating, Sodium Hypochlorite evolves instantaneously with negligible quantities of hydrogen rising up to the surface, which is vented out. This process is based on the chemistry of Electrolysis of Sodium Chloride. The Sodium Hypochlorite thus generated is collected in a storage Tank and applied directly or pumped to the point of application.

Continuous Production

Description

Continuous Production Electrochlorinators are On-Site Sodium Hypochlorite [Hypo] Generator designed for small/medium/large capacities.Continuous Production Electrochlorinators are capable of producing from 500 gms/hr to 15 Kgs/hr active chlorine using our unique Multimetallic Oxides Coated, Titanium Nobel Anodes and Electrochemical Process. Brine solution passes though an Online Electrolyser cell with inbuilt heat exchanger pack. This is connected to a DC Rectifier. When low voltage DC is passed through the Electrolyser Cell, Sodium Hypochlorite solution to concentration of 6-8 gms/litre approx. is evolved continuously. This can be stored in a Storage Tank and pumped/used at required rates.

Basic System Components

Brine Solution Storage Tank/Sea Water Tank, Brine/Seawater Pump, Electrolyser with inbuilt composite FRP Heat Exchanger or Chiller Plant, DC Rectifier, Hypo Storage Tank, necessary Instrumentation, Pipes & Fittings, and Dosing Pump & accessories.

Operation

A metered amount of water is mixed with common salt to form brine of required concentration [or Seawater is used]. This is the electrolyte used in the process. This electrolyte is pumped to Electrolyser cells, when DC Current passes through these Titanium Anodes with special MMO Coating, Sodium Hypochlorite solution to concentration of 8 gms/litre approx. evolves continuously and this is collected in Hypo Storage Tank and applied directly or pumped to the point of application at required rates. To maintain the temperature at correct levels, prevent dissipation and get correct concentration of Sodium Hypochlorite output, Brine/seawater in cooled through a chiller or heat exchanger.
