Chlorination is a reliable method to disinfect municipal drinking water and wastewater, but not all disinfection systems deliver the same value. Municipal wastewater plants and drinking-water plants are looking for solutions that ease containment challenges, mitigate risks from accidental release and reduce costs. More and more plants are looking to replace chlorine gas and other less reliable chlorination systems with calcium hypochlorite-based technologies.
The Constant Chlor disinfection system from Solenis is a reliable, cost-effective solution for municipal water treatment applications. Using a unique chemical briquette combined with a patented feeder, the system produces a fresh, concentrated liquid chlorine solution that controls bacteria and algae and prevents organic contaminants.
Using the Constant Chlor disinfection system, municipal drinking-water plants and wastewater plants experience a number of benefits:
The system uses EPA-registered briquettes that work in conjunction with proprietary feeder technology to produce a fresh concentrated liquid chlorine solution. The feeder is NSF/ANSI 61-certified and meets AWWA Standard B300. Its compact design, easy-to-use touch screen and easy-access removable panels simplify operation and reduce maintenance costs. An innovative hopper attachment allows for added chemical capacity and reduction in dust during chemical loading.
The Constant Chlor briquettes feature a pillow shape that creates a well-packed spray bed, resulting in high-strength 65% minimum AvCL output. A scale inhibitor is blended with the active chemical to help prevent scale formation inside the chlorination chamber, ensuring reliable performance of the system. Working together, Constant Chlor feeder and briquettes can treat facilities with up to 10 million gallons of water per day.
