The RIO units will produce up to 20 million gallons of effluent per day, and the disinfected water will be reused by Gulf Power’s Crist Plant. Recycling the effluent discharge via industrial reuse minimizes the impact the facility’s processes will have on the environment while enhancing the efficiency and reducing operational costs of both the Crist Plant and the CWRF.
The RIO generates a 0.8 percent sodium hypochlorite solution on site, on demand, by combining three common consumables - salt, water and electricity. Generating a chlorine equivalent on site eliminates the need to transport and store potentially dangerous chlorine gas and alleviates operational challenges associated with storing and injecting bulk sodium hypochlorite. The MIOX system product line is highly scalable with free available chlorine (FAC) ranging from 4 to 1,550+ lb/day.
