Electro Chlorination Systems for Water Treatment

WestWater Enterprises distributes the Gaffey Technical Services Ltd Services range of Hyprolyser electro chlorination systems throughout Australia.

Electro chlorination provides a method of manufacturing sodium hypochlorite (NaOCL) on-site via the principle of electrolysis. The basic components of electro chlorination are:

Salt + water + electrical power -> sodium hypochlorite (NaOCL) +H2

The sodium hypochlorite produced is of low concentration (0.7 to 0.8 per cent) and is not considered a hazardous chemical.

On-Site Generation

On-site sodium hypochlorite generation through electro chlorination is a proven, cost-effective, reliable and safe alternative disinfection water treatment method.

On-site generated sodium hypochlorite is stable and easy to feed; additionally less chlorine is lost to the atmosphere because of better mixing and retention in treated water.

Hyprolyser on-site sodium hypochlorite generation systems can reduce a customer’s carbon footprint and salt consumption by as much as 20 per cent. Hyprolyser systems reduce risks by eliminating the production of disinfection by-products, helping to provide water that is free of pathogens.

Standard Hyprolyser systems can meet various client requirements and production ranges from 1kg/day to 136kg/day chlorine equivalent. However, larger systems can also be designed and supplied to meet non-standard requirements.

Modular Design Advantage

Hyprolyser systems are modular in design which allows for ease of service and expansion potential. The hydrogen by-product is disposed of via sophisticated blower mechanisms. Systems are supplied with softener, salt saturator, electrolysers, blowers and electrical control panels.

Additional items such as sodium hypochlorite storage tanks and dosing pumps can be sized and supplied as options.

Hyprolyser systems are available as skid-mounted or component based systems with skid mounted systems fully operational and generating sodium hypochlorite in less than 24 hours.

Benefits of Electro Chlorination

Some of the benefits of electro chlorination systems from WestWater include:

  • Low operating costs
  • On demand sodium hypochlorite production
  • No handling or transportation of hazardous materials
  • Easy operation
