Patented Technology

Electrichlor electrolytic cells are highly efficient due to the patented monopolar, multipass circular configuration that allows a progressively longer residence time for the adsorption of Cl- into the outgoing hypochlorite solution. Electrichlor electrodes have an even current density over all anode and cathode surfaces due to the unique physical and electrical design which further enhances the overall efficiency of the Electrichlor electrolytic cell, promoting long anode life. Anodes are coated with a patented mixed metal oxide containing a special blend of precious metals including Rhodium, Ruthenium, Iridium.

All Electrichlor electrolytic cells are guaranteed against defective parts for 18 months from startup and for 5 years for the MMO anode coating under normal operating conditions. Each Electrichlor® cell is guaranteed to produce its rated capacity of sodium hypochlorite in normal seawater at less than 4.5kW per kg of equivalent chlorine. The flow rate through each electrolytic cell, using seawater, is set to deliver either 1kg, 2kg or 4kg per hour of equivalent chlorine, depending of the electrolytic cell size.
