Creston’s Electrichlor technlogy is leading the evolution in hypochlorite generation.
Our unique, patented, all-titanium electrolyzer cell has been proven in the toughest environments around the world and now offers unparalleled reliability to municipal water and wastewater plants.
Our cell design and optimized operating parameters result in unique benefits that improve safety, reliability and cost-effectiveness for our customers:
No sparks. Intrinsically safe cell design.
Our cell design approach optimized electrode spacing, operating voltage and fluid dynamics to eliminate the risk of sparking inside the electrolyzer cell. While other systems manage hydrogen risk by venting each cell, the Electrichlor generators remove the ignition source altogether while also maintaining appropriate ventilation throughout the system.
No cracks, no leaks. All-titanium
The unique design of our cell utilizes the cathode assembly as housing, eliminating the use of acrylic, clear PVC or other plastics that experience embrittlement and cracking over time, which leads to leaks, increased maintenance expenses, lower productivity and risk of operator exposure to hypochlorite.
Choose your hypochlorite
strength: 0.4 or 0.8%.
The Electrichlor cell can generate either 0.8% or 0.4% hypochlorite solutions operating at the same industry standard efficiencies of 3.0 pounds of salt and 2.0 kilowatt-hour per pound of chlorine. This flexibility results from Electrichlor’s optimization of operating parameters, however, operating at 0.4% hypochlorite significantly increases the reliability of the system by minimizing scaling and anode coating degradation, resulting in much longer cell life.
Make hypochlorite with secondary
effluent and RO reject brine.
When operating at 0.4% hypochlorite strength, the Electrichlor cell allows for the use of alternative water sources such as municipal secondary effluent, and alternative chloride sources such as RO reject brine without sacrificing efficiency or output. This is possible thanks to the combination of reduced scaling and greater electrode spacing. This flexibility enables wastewater treatment plants to significantly reduce their cost of disinfection.
Increase capacity on-the-fly to
meet unexpected chlorine
When operating at 0.4% hypochlorite production, the Electrichlor cell can be operated at production rates 30% above the rated capacity to respond to a sudden increase in chlorine demand. While the salt efficiency drops under these operating conditions, it enables wastewater plants to quickly respond to plant upsets or changing water quality without the need for more or larger equipment.
Less cleaning; happier operators.
When operating at 0.4% hypochlorite production, the Electrichlor cell minimizes scaling rates, resulting in much longer intervals without cleaning, which reduces overall maintenance cost and improves the reliability of the plant.
10 year anode life; lower cost of ownership.
When operating at 0.4% hypochlorite production, the Electrichlor cell experiences a much slower anode coating degradation, which results in an unparalleled 10-year anode warranty.
