Sodium Hypochlorite: The Unsung Hero In Disinfection By Angela Yeung, District Sales Manager, Grundfos
The fortunate few in this world enjoy fresh cold water from our taps, crisp white linens in hotel rooms, and refreshing and safe water in swimming pools. It all seems very easy and straight forward with all the new technologies available in the industry to ensure safe and clean drinking water. A reliable and effective technology is always needed to ensure peace of mind for all water treatment processes. In many cases, it is the centuries-old sodium hypochlorite (NaClO) chemical, or as known by every household – bleach.
Mixed Oxidant Solution Effectively Removes Legionella From Water By MIOX Corporation Legionella pneumophilia is an aquatic organism that associates with biofilm — a gelatinous layer consisting of microbial cells, the polysaccharide biopolymer they produce, and debris extracted from recirculating water. Legionella pneumophilia films continuously erode and disperse through the water system during normal operation, increasing the risk of inhaling a sufficient number of the airborne bacteria to cause Legionnaire’s disease.
Chlorine To UV: Conversion Made Easy By TrojanUV
The city of Auburn, AL, has two wastewater treatment facilities: the Northside Water Pollution Control Facility, and the H.C. Morgan Water Pollution Control Facility. In 2012, the H.C. Morgan facility was upgraded, and disinfection was converted from chlorine to UV. This case study will provide you with details about the selection process, why our TrojanUVSigna was chosen, and how we helped simplify the conversion from chlorine.
