Levels of chlorine in dry chlorine in hydrochloric acid synthesis are monitored by means of AppliTek’s multi-wavelength UV analyzer system. Hydrochloric acid or HCl is one of the primary products of the chlor-alkali industry and commonly produced by the exothermic reaction of hydrogen and chlorine inside a burner. With increasing concerns over safety and efficiency in the chlorine manufacturing processes, AppliTek has investigated the use of proprietary on-line analyzer systems to monitor and control HCl...
The importance of drinking water quality for the production and performance of poultry has become one of the most important management tools. Without an adequate supply of good quality water, bird performance will be impacted. The key is not just the adequate supply of water, but good quality water.
One prime factor that determines the wholesomeness of water is its microbial quality. Therefore, it should be of primary concern for production personnel and poultry producers to know the microbial quality of water...
Odor Control: Chlorine dioxide controls odors by destroying hydrogen sulfide through chemical oxidation. Using an odor scrubber, chlorine dioxide solutions may be added directly to water containing the odorous compound for quick and cost-effective oxidations.
The mercury cell process is a formerly widely-used production technique for the production of chlorine and caustic soda. The liquid metal, mercury, acts as cathode (negative pole) in this process. In the past, the loss of mercury during the process (to air, soil and water) led to serious health and environmental problems. Therefore, most European chlorine producers have decided to phase out the mercury cell process by 2020. Nevertheless, even today, almost 6000 tons of mercury is used per year for chlorine...
Chlorine Dioxide has been shown to be extremely effective in the control of legionella bacteria and the prevention of Legionnaires’ Disease and Feedwater’s patented Activ-ox® system is the easiest and safest way to treat drinking, domestic and cooling water with chlorine dioxide.
In the normal course of operation, hospitals generate a variety of waste products which are not suitable for normal disposal. While some or most hospital waste may be harmless, it is difficult to distinguish such harmless waste from infectious waste. As a result, all of the waste from a hospital must be treated as if it is harmful.
Irrigation Systems: A common problem encountered in all irrigation systems is growth of micro-organisms in the irrigation pipes causing poor flow, blockages and the potential for the spread of disease-causing organisms throughout the irrigated area, particularly fungal diseases. The micro-organisms flourishing in irrigation pipes include bacteria and fungi and, if sufficient light is present, algae. Irrigation pipes provide an ideal environment for the establishment of biofilm on the inside of the pipes.
Chlorine dioxide is a significant product in the control of algae, planktonic and sessile bacteria, bio-film and scale in power plants, cooling towers, loops and cooling systems. CleanOxide helps maintain the efficiency of heat exchanger surfaces, reservoir intakes and ancillary equipment. Traditional oxidising agents such as chlorine and bromine, on the other hand, are associated with pH constraints and corrosion problems.
The purpose of determining impurities in dry chlorine (after compression) is a quality control measure to avoid contamination and off-spec product batches. Alternatively, chlorine purity can also be determined by measuring absolute levels of chlorine in dry chlorine, by means of multi-wavelength UV analysis.
Chlorine levels in liquid hydrochloric acid (HCl) are precisely and safely monitored by means of AppliTek’s EZ-HCl process analyzer. On-line measurement of chlorine in liquid HCl guarantees the purity of the end product. An additional possible reason for the measurement is that chlorine is an indicator for the amount of excess hydrogen in the synthesis of hydrochloric acid.
The purpose of determination of moisture in dry chlorine is threefold: prevent corrosion, prevent formation of ferric chloride and control the overall drying process. AppliTek offers two different solutions for determination of moisture: one traditional method by means of an amperometric phosphoric pentoxide (P2O5) electrochemical cell, or a more advanced technique based on tunable diode laser technology (TLDS). Both analyzer systems are installed in a compact protective corrosion resistant cabinet.
Levels of hydrogen in dry chlorine are monitored in hydrochloric acid synthesis by means of AppliTek’s multi-wavelength IR analyzer system. With increasing concerns over safety and efficiency in the chlorine manufacturing processes, AppliTek has investigated the use of proprietary on-line analyzer systems to monitor and control the HCl synthesis. Each of these on-line analyzer systems has been selected to control a specific part of the burner, by using techniques such as multi-wavelength infrared, thermal...
Levels of oxygen in dry chlorine in hydrochloric acid synthesis are monitored by means of an on-line analyzer system that can be equipped with two different measuring technologies: Alternating Pressure Paramagnetic or Tunable Diode Laser (TDL) analyzer system.
Determining chlorinated organics in waste water of the oxychlorination process is for reasons of environmental compliance. The on-line analyzer system uses a scrubber system where a carrier flow is bubbling through the water. The vapor phase is measured by a Flame Ionization Detector (FID) and is a measure for chlorinated organics of the water.
The luxurious pool experience: Say goodbye to chlorine odors, irritated eyes, hair damage and faded swimsuits caused by excessive disinfection by-products and over chlorination. Common salt and electricity generate a consistent and proper amount of pure chlorine solution in a safe, simple and cost effective way to disinfect pools. We are committed to improving your recreational water quality, while using a green, recyclable treatment process.
Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is well suited for upstream gas production during oil and gas operations, as well as other oil and gas water applications. Chlorine dioxide is highly effective and more sustainable than other oxidizing or non-oxidizing biocide options.
Wastewater Deodorization: The formation of hydrogen sulfide often poses a problem for municipal wastewater treatment. Chlorine dioxide, a powerful oxidant, can be effectively used to control noxious, irritating, or pungent odors from many operations. Moreover, its unique selective properties permit more efficient application at a lower dosage and cost than chorine, hypochlorite, permanganate peroxide or ozone.
