The on-site generation of chlorine-based chemistries provides a safe, economical and effective solution for the treatment of water. For a variety of applications from drinking water treatment to microbiological control in cooling towers, on site generation lets you generate what you need, when you need it. This powerful and highly effective oxidant is generated without creating or transporting hazardous chemicals, ensuring the safety of personnel and the surrounding community. Innovative ClorTec® technological advancements deliver low levels of chlorate byproduct formation at the highest efficiency available.
ClorTec® on-site hypochlorite generation systems use three common consumables - water, salt and power – to produce chlorine-based disinfectants when a solution of sodium chloride is passed through an electrolytic cell. This process converts the chloride ions present in the solution to either sodium hypochlorite or mixed oxidant solution, depending on the cell configuration.
At the heart of every De Nora electrochlorination system are DSA® electrodes pioneered by De Nora.
