The CECHLO® 3 compartment cell Electrolyzer is derived from the well-established CECHLO® -MS technology for sodium hypochlorite generation, with the additional installation of a middle chamber between the anionic and cationic separation membranes.
Thanks to the proven and reliable performances of the original membrane cell technology developed by ThyssenKrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers (Japan) Ltd. and the new, original, concept, the CECHLO® 3 compartment cell Electrolyzer offers a cost effective and efficient answer to industrial process requiring innovative solutions in fast growing niche markets, such as acid and caustic recovery through salt splitting.
De Nora is able to supply two size of electrolyzer, with different cell electrodes effective areas, enabling flexible cell stack design, from compact units to large industrial capacity.
This new technology can potentially bring substantial advantages also to many other industrial applications like recovery process of: Sodium (Na), Lithium (Li), Potassium (K), Tetramethylammonium (TMA), Nitrate (NO3), Sulfate (SO4) etc. through electrolysis.
De Nora can supply compact CECHLO® Electrolyzer (2 compartment cell or 3 compartment cell) for field pilot-scale and lab tests, in case both approaches could be technologically and economically feasible and need to be further evaluated before scaling up to commercial size.
