  • Controoling chlorine costs

    The most widespread disinfectant used in the treatment of drinking water is chlorine, which can be applied in a variety of ways. History has taught us that, in bacteriological terms, chlorinating water is a proven way of disinfecting drinking water. After all, more than 75 years have passed since chlorine was used to disinfect drinking water for the first time. Many years of experience have shown ...

  • Case study - Chlorinated groundwater treatment

    Overview A Fortune 50 company implemented a remedial project to collect and treat polluted groundwater from a site in Central New York, preventing the mitigation of impacted groundwater from flowing into local waterways. An engineering and construction firm was hired to design and build an effective, efficient groundwater treatment system. Collection of the polluted water would be ...

  • Chlorine gas protection - Case Study

    Application As part of a scheme to bring safe drinking water to 1.5 million people in Omdurman City, part of Greater Khartoum, Biwater International was appointed by the Government of Sudan to undertake a major turnkey design and construction project. Chlorine is the conventional means of water disinfection, so Biwater brought in ERG to design and manufacture the emergency gas ...

  • Effect of gaseous chlorine dioxide on indoor microbial contaminants

    Traditional and modern techniques for bioaerosol enumeration were used to evaluate the relative efficiency of gaseous chlorine dioxide (ClO2) in reducing the indoor microbial contamination under field and laboratory conditions. The field study was performed in a highly microbially contaminated house, which had had an undetected roof leak for an extended period of time and exhibited large areas of ...

  • Comparing the Realities of Elemental Chlorine vs. Sodium Hypochlorite

    Recently, we have seen a growing trend towards the use of a less reliable and more costly disinfection chemical, Sodium Hypochlorite. Much of this can be attributed to the fact that large companies making chemical metering pumps for other uses or other alternative disinfection devices as well as chemical suppliers who profit more by selling costly Sodium Hypochlorite have proliferated misleading ...


  • Case study - Emergency equipment for the absorption of chlorine in hospitals

    Chlorine is a strong oxidant that in normal conditions and in its pure state formsdichlorine, a toxic gas with a yellow-greenish colour formed by diatomic molecules (Cl2) that are about 2.5 times heavier than air and have an unpleasant smell. Among its multiple applications and due to its powerful oxidising nature, it is widely used forwater purificationin sewage treatment plants and as ...

  • Is your Plant as tight as you think? Leak Detector for extremely toxic Gases, a Field Test Report

    Leak detection of commodity gases in chemical plants is a day-to-day practice. The sensor technology available for this application is field proven and reliable. No question about it, existing sensors will do the job. However, in plants manufacturing or handling extremely toxic substances, the picture is different. For example, take phosgene. The existing sensor technology for leak detection ...

  • Field Detection of Chlorinated Alkenes in Well Water using the FROG-4000 Portable GC - Case Study

    Introduction Defiant’s FROG 4000, a portable GCPID system, was used to identify and determine the concentration of chlorinated alkenes in several extraction wells located in Tacoma Washington. Split samples were taken at each well and sent to an offsite lab for analysis. This case study examines the field exercise and highlights the high degree of agreement between the offsite lab and ...

  • Gas Detection in Public Swimming Pool Facilities

    Recreational facilities’ indoor swimming pools provide a venue for exercise, competition and fun for all ages as patrons splash, swim, dive and float around in the crystal clear water. To keep the water fit to swim in requires a disinfectant maintenance program commonly using Chlorine, or Chlorine and Ozone. Chlorine is a powerful, corrosive disinfectant and in both gas and liquid forms it ...

  • Plant for the Istanbul waterworks

    Shock chlorination for a water quantity of 55,000 m³/h! This is the result of a large project carried out by Grundfos Alldos for the city of Istanbul together with Durko as the local representative.The background: the municipal waterworks of the Turkish metropolis draw their raw water from a local lake. The water is routed from there to the various waterworks for treatment.To enable problem-free ...


  • Gas Detection in Recreation Facilities: Can the same detector work for pools and arenas?

    It is not uncommon for the same recreational facility to offer both skating and swimming amenities, two very different environments with different potential gas hazards. Given the fact that there is a possibility of 6 different types of gas to monitor and the large area between the two types of facilities, a single detector will not provide the monitoring requirements for both areas. It is ...

  • 445 Sectional Steel Water Tanks Case Study

  • Managing risks from virus intrusion into water distribution systems due to pressure transients

    Low or negative pressure transients in water distribution systems, caused by unexpected events (e.g. power outages) or routine operation/maintenance activities, are usually brief and thus are rarely monitored or alarmed. Previous studies have shown connections between negative pressure events in water distribution systems and potential public health consequences. Using a quantitative microbial ...
