Disinfection and pH Adjuster
In potable water plants, system disinfection and pH adjuster are crucial to safeguard consumers from diseases and prevent scaling. This involves removing or deactivating pathogenic microorganisms, ensuring their growth and reproduction are terminated.
Failure to eliminate microorganisms from drinking water can lead to health issues. Sterilization, a related process, kills all microorganisms in the water, including harmless ones.
Furthermore, pH adjustment is essential in various industrial processes to meet environmental regulations before reusing or returning wastewater to the water cycle. When the water is too acidic (pH below 7), substances like lime, sodium carbonate, or sodium hydroxide are added to raise the pH. Conversely, if the pH is too high, weak solutions of hydrochloric acid or sulfuric acid are used to lower it.
When it comes to chemical water disinfection and pH adjustment, you have a range of options available, including:
• Sodium Hydroxide
• Sodium Carbonate
• Calcium Hypochlorite
• Sodium Hypochlorite
• SDIC 60%
• TCCA 90%
• Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)
