  10. Combination of Chlorine-Free Electrolytic and Photochemical Methods for Sterilization of Contaminated Waters

    SBC: MICRO-TRACERS INC.            Topic: F

    "Effective electrolytic sanitizing of contaminated waters using chloride requires a relatively high concentration of the elemental chlorine and hypochlorides. This requires a high concentration of chloride salt (higher the 0.15%). At such a concentration, chloride ions cause corrosion of various bimetal connections found in water plumbing systems, such as water distributors, cooling towers, etc. ...
