Abstract:

On-site generation technology utilizes common salt (sodium chloride) which is made in to a dilute brine solution that is converted in an electrolytic cell to a chlorine-based liquid disinfectant. The chlorine component is important since the US EPA requires a chlorine disinfection residual value in drinking water in the United States. There are no hazardous materials used, consumed or produced in the process. The product produced is not hazardous since the concentration of the oxidant is less than 1%. Operating costs are very low compared to chlorine gas or commercial sodium hypochlorite (bleach) since consumbables are commonly available salt and electrical power. The commercial applications of this technology are significant world-wide and include potable water, wastewater, cooling towers, swimming pools, and other applications requiring a chlorine-based disinfectant. System sizes range from large municipal water applications to individual use devices for both the commercial and military sectors. Mixed-oxidant variants of the disinfectant have been demonstrated to reduce disinfection by-products (trihalomethanes and haloacetic acids) and provide other significant chemistry benefits for potable water, cooling towers, swimming pools, and other applications.
