What is Gas Chlorination?

Gas chlorination is a process used primarily for water disinfection. Most people are familiar with the use of chlorine in swimming pools to eliminate bacteria and algae buildup. While this is a well-known application for gas chlorination, there are numerous industrial and water treatment purposes that benefit from chlorine water cleansing as well.  

For industrial and commercial purposes, gas chlorination systems are used to effectively monitor and disperse chlorine into water systems on a continuous basis. Through sensitive machinery, chlorine gas is added to the water to maintain a specified residual at all times.


Gas Chlorination Applications

A precision gas chlorinator is an essential component for many industrial, civil, and government applications. Without a safe (SUPERIOR gas chlorinators are vacuum safe—the safest form of chlorine injection), reliable gas chlorinator system, bacteria can overrun a system, resulting in equipment failures, unsanitary products, noxious odors and reduced profits. Due to these compounding issues, investing in a gas chlorination system is a smart and necessary purchase for many applications. Some of these applications include:

  • Improving taste, safety and odor of drinking water
  • Cleaning industrial process water and wastewater
  • Algae and slime control
  • Citrus canker destruction
  • Increasing shelf life of processed food
  • Disinfecting swimming pools
  • Sanitizing sewage
  • Dye waste treatment
