Electrochlorinator is the heart of any Electrochlorination system, each electrochlorinator consists of a series of electrolytic cells, typically 10 cells in series arranged as a multi-fingered bipole, the number of fingers in each cell specifically sized for the output capacity of the electrochlorinator.
The electrodes are mounted in a carrier, which is housed in a tubular body. Sufficient potential is applied to the electrochlorinator terminal connections to induce current flow through the cells. The carrier prevents stray current flow ensuring maximum efficiency. All fasteners used for the carrier assembly and the umbilical connections are of titanium construction. Each electrochlorinator is connected in hydraulic series and the cells in electrical series.
Electrochlorinator operate normally under constant seawater flow rate. The DC current applied to the cells is adjusted to control the chlorine output so as to instantaneously match the treatment requirements.
