DIOX-A Generador de Dióxido de Cloro
En lo generadores DIOX-A de Wallace & Tiernan®, el dióxido de cloro es producido en solución acuosa de concentración constante, mediante el método Ácido + Clorito.
In the Wallace & Tiernan® DIOX-A generators, chlorine dioxide is produced as an aqueous solution of constant strength. For the generation, hydrochloric acid (9%) and sodium chlorite (7.5%) are used. Both reagents are fed by means of peristaltic pumps directly from commercial carboys into a pressureless reaction tank. The precise feed rate of the peristaltic pumps is constantly monitored by flow totalizers. Any undue deviation of the flow rate or a failure of the operating water supply will automatically shut down the system and set off an alarm signal.
The surplus of hydrochloric acid in the reaction tank ensures a high conversion rate of the chlorite into chlorine dioxide.
