Hypochlorite Disinfection chemicals for treating potable water, drinking water and for use in industrial processes

A novel energy efficient electrochemical process based on the NaSelect membrane to make sodium hypochlorite chemical disinfectant produced from low purity un-softened water for disinfection of drinking water. Some key product features are:

  • Point of use generation device which produces sodium hypochlorite in the range of 0.1 gram/liter to 8 grams/liter.
  • Production of concentration higher than 2 grams/liter using a divided cell configuration at process efficiency greater than 80% as compared to an undivided cell technology.
  • It is a closed loop system without production of waste stream
  • Eliminates transport, handling and storage of chlorine for hypochlorite production
  • Dial in process for production of sodium hypochlorite on demand

Potential Applications

  1. Water treatment and purification presents the greatest benefit and opportunity for hypochlorite disinfection technology, greatly improving the ability to make clean drinking water for ship based water supplies, land based troop water supplies, environments where chemical or biological contamination is a possibility, community water supplies, marine organism control, large scale water and wastewater disinfection, odor control for the energy and municipal water sector and disinfection for industrial applications.

  2. On-site sodium hypochlorite disinfection has numerous advantages over chlorine or ozone tablets for potable water, large scale chemical inventories used in wastewater and cooling water treatments where safety is a concern and particularly operations situated within or near concentrated populated areas. Our novel technology will service all potential military and civilian applications, providing troops and civilians with a safe and effective means to disinfect their water streams.

  3. Seawater electrochlorinator systems are commonly used at coastal and offshore installations such as power plants, desalination plants and oil drilling and production facilities to control marine organism growth in condenser cooling water, circulating water, and service water systems. This eliminates the need and vulnerability of supplies in critical hot zones. Brine systems are commonly used to produce residual chlorine in potable water systems for effluent disinfection applications at inland sewage treatment and industrial plants, and for cooling water treatment at inland power plants and industries.
