Hypochlorite generators of superior quality.

About Hypochlorite

What is Sodium Hypochlorite?​

Sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) is a member of the chlorine family of disinfectants. NaOCl is a chemical compound made up of the elements: sodium, oxygen, and chlorine and is formed from salt and water.​

​The generation of NaOCl (aka bleach) from on-site generators is a safe alternative to chlorine gas chlorination systems, as the chlorine generated in the generator is locked up as sodium hypochlorite at concentrations below the threshold of hazardous materials (1%) per the EPA.

Bio-fouling 101​​

Algae build-up within seawater piping systems is caused by small pieces of vegetable matter lodging in pipe joints, cracks, and/or areas of low flow, which cause material to cling to the pipe wall. This algae build-up within piping systems is very susceptible to chlorine attack; therefore, low chlorine dosing can be very effective at algae reduction.​
Algae will slowly become immune to low chlorine dosing levels over a period of one to two weeks, depending on the water temperature. Therefore, to control the buildup of algae in seawater systems, NaOCl dosing should be only enough to maintain a small “Chlorine Residual” in the tail-water system. Chlorine residual is the amount of chlorine left in the water after all bacteria, pathogens and marine species have been destroyed. Chlorine residual can be sampled either continuously or by grab methods in the tail-water.​
Electrichlor’s OSHG provide control of biofouling in industrial cooling water equipment and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor locations.​ ​ The control of bio-fouling through chlorination has proven to be the most effective method for water treatment. Additionally, hypochlorination from brine water provides an effective method of water treatment that is safe for handling as well as the environment.​
