Severn Trent Services has recently installed a sodium hypochlorite generation system
3 March 2006, News release from Severn Trent Services Ltd
Severn Trent Services has recently installed a CT-900 on-site sodium hypochlorite generation system at Ogston Water Treatment Works in Derbyshire. The unit is capable of generating enough hypochlorite for the whole works at maximum site requirement.
Severn Trent Water is the world's fourth largest privately-owned water company with over 8 million customers. The company supplies 1,960MI/day across a region covering more than 21,000 square kilometers.
Historically two electrochlorination systems provided the disinfection requirements for the potable water at a Severn Trent Water site located at Ogston in north Derbyshire. One of the two existing electrochlorination systems required replacement and the decision was taken to invest in a single new electrochlorination plant suitably sized to cater for the whole works chlorination requirements. Severn Trent Services provided two ClorTec" CT-900 on site sodium hypochlorite generators. The two CT-900 units are capable of generating sufficient sodium hypochlorite to satisfy the works demand under average conditions in a 7 hour period. This allows the electrochlorination system to take advantage of the off peak electricity tariffs, ensuring the lowest possible operational costs.
A single generator CT-900 generator is capable of producing sufficient sodium hypochlorite for the whole works at maximum site requirements. This effective provides a duty/standby arrangement for the works, ensuring process security at all times."
System set up
As a refurbishment scheme, the system was required to interface with existing salt saturators and sodium hypochlorite product tanks. However, to cater for the increase in capacity of the new electrochlorination plant both the water softener and Hydrogen dilution fans were replaced. Additionally a hardness monitor was installed to ensure that the water quality to the new electrodes was within acceptable limits.
The ClorTec product range has Secretary of State Approval for use with potable water within the UK and is compliant with ATEX requirements. Severn Trent Services offer comprehensive service packages carried out by in-house service engineers.
