The following refer to the Aquachlor Business Unit:
Q: What is the concentration of the disinfectant produced?
A: The disinfectant produced will contain 7 grams of available equivalent chlorine per liter of solution. The concentration is 7000 parts per million or 7000 ml per lit
Q: What is the expected lifetime of the system?
A: The electrodes are warranted for five years, but with proper care will last well beyond that time. The power supply is warranted for one year after installation, but will last as long as the electrodes.
Q: What maintenance is required?
A: Mineral deposits accumulate on the surface of the electrodes during normal operation. The rate of accumulation depends on the quality of the water used to produce the sodium hypochlorite. To remove the mineral deposits the electrode needs to be submerged in a weak acid solution or white vinegar.
Q: How much disinfectant should I use for drinking water?
A: That depends on the amount of organic contaminants in the water. Typically you will want to dose enough disinfectant to neutralize all the organic material in the water and leave a residual of <0.5PPM of chlorine. A dose of 2 PPM is commonly used.
Q: How efficient is the Sodium Hypochlorite solution compared to Gas Chlorine and Calcium Hypochlorite in the water disinfection?
A: The chlorine available for disinfection contained in gas chlorine, calcium hypochlorite and sodium hypochlorite is exactly the same and do the same work.
Q: How complicated is to operate and maintain these units?
A: It is not even required operator's literacy or skills to properly operate the units. It is extremely easy to use and maintain.
