De Nora launches high-efficiency electrochlorination system

Leading designer of sustainable technologies, energy-saving products and water treatment solutions, De Nora, has launched a new high-efficiency electrochlorination system. The ClorTec Gen III is reported to deliver 15% operating cost savings compared to the previous model. PIF finds out more about this efficient new water treatment technology.

New electrochlorination system design

Global leader of sustainable technologies, De Nora has announced the launch of its next generation of ClorTec on-site sodium hypochlorite generators. The new high-efficiency ClorTec Gen III system uses an optimised electrochlorination process that reduces salt and power consumption to deliver a 15 percent operating cost savings compared to the previous ClorTec DN Gen II system.

“With more than 9,500 installations globally, De Nora has been pioneering the brine electrochlorination process for nearly a century, since filing the first of several patents covering hypochlorite generation,” said Dr Mirka Wilderer, CEO, De Nora Water Technologies.

“Today, a culture of innovation and commitment to research and development allows us to deliver to the market the next generation in the evolution of the electrochlorination process.

“The new high-efficiency system uses less salt and less power, resulting in significant opex cost savings for our partners. With simple and precise operation, the ClorTec Gen III offers the same peace of mind as the Gen II, but now reduces operating costs by 15% - that can result in yearly savings of $70,000, based on a 3,000 lb FAC per day system”

Market-leading electrochlorination systems

The ClorTec Gen III system includes the same market-led features as the previous model, including easy operation, less maintenance, and up to 50% footprint reduction. All ClorTec electrochlorination systems include 100% access to every component, making operation and maintenance simple.

They feature a proprietary liquid flow backboard that can be located anywhere in the building for additional flexibility. Smart Monitoring technology and acid cleaning notifications allow users to remotely monitor and control the operation of their system and provide performance data remotely back at the operator’s location.

The ClorTec line of on-site sodium hypochlorite generators generate sodium hypochlorite using three common and safe consumables – water, salt and power – and has proven effective at producing chlorate and other disinfection by-products levels in finish water below the current US guidelines and International Regulatory Limits.

Trusted electrochlorination system manufacturers

De Nora launched their new ClorTec Gen III system at the Water Environment Federation's Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) in Chicago, where visitors were able to see the electrochlorination system manufacturer’s new system in person and experience a ClorTec on-site sodium hypochlorite generator for themselves in virtual reality.

De Nora is a global company and the largest provider of electrodes and coatings for electrochemical processes to serve diversified markets and is among the leaders in technologies and processes for water and wastewater treatment. Founded in 1923 by Oronzio De Nora to pursue the commercial exploitation of its first patent, the company evolved over time to become a multinational enterprise with manufacturing facilities close to all its customers.
