What is saline electrochlorination?
Saline electrolysis is a water treatment method in which the oxidising agent, the chlorine, is generated directly from the water to be treated by means of an electrolytic process. This technique avoids the need to add chemical products to the water being treated, thereby eliminating any handling or storage of chemicals. Saline electrolysis is particularly suitable for the treatment of swimming pool water, achieving a straightforward and effective system. It offers numerous benefits over treatment using chemical products. The resulting water is of a higher quality, and is much healthier, as it does not contain chemical additives, while achieving distinctively crystalline clarity. The resulting chlorine is completely odourless and colourless. The system also operates constantly and automatically, eliminating the cost of treatment products.
How does saline electrochlorination work?
This chlorination technique uses the potential of switch mode power supply and bipolar cells. These two additions are what make us stand out in the marketplace compared with other types of saline chlorinated, for various reasons:
By using a switch mode power supply, we exponentially increase the performance level of the machine, reducing electricity costs and maximising chlorine production to the utmost. This type of system also releases only minimal amounts of heat, which means it can be installed in confined or more awkward spaces. Furthermore, the chlorination is performed by small, lightweight chlorinators that are easy to transport and install, while also saving on space.
We use bipolar cells, that offer a much higher performance level than conventional monopolar cells. This means more chlorine per amp, increasing the efficiency and speed of the procedure.
The design offers considerable benefits in electrochemical and mechanical terms. The catalytic coating allows for very slight electrical resistance, but offers considerable mechanical strength. This means that the chlorination process needs less current, achieving a significant cost saving.
All of which allows Innowater to present its wireless control and dosing equipment for both pH and chlorine as an efficient way of achieving a better balance in swimming pool water. Properly regulated pH saves on Cl2 and avoids such problems as eye irritation, the emergence of algae or rusting of swimming pool accessories.
