The most widespread disinfectant used in the treatment of water is chlorine, which can be applied in a variety of ways. History has taught us that, in bacteriological terms, chlorinating water is a quite safe way of disinfecting drinking water. After all, more than 100 years have passed since chlorine was used to disinfect drinking water for the first time. Many years of experience have shown that acute toxicity can be excluded, when chlorination is executed correctly.
Generally, three methods are used for chlorinating drinking and pool water:
The third method in particular offers a number of advantages, which are incorporated in the Klorigen™ chlorine electrolysis systems.
With electrolysis, sodium hypochlorite is produced directly from a solution of common salt using electricity.
The sodium hypochlorite solution, which is the disinfectant, has a pH value between 8.5 and 9.5, and a chlorine concentration of 8 g/l. It has a half-life of several months, which makes it ideal for storage in a buffer tank.
