Hypochlorous Acid (HOCI) is preferred for wastewater treatment and disinfection because of the safety and convenience of storage and use. DiriGoStream is a mobile unit that produces HOCl on-demand in any wastewater treatment facility. Proven highly effective in treating wastewater, HOCI disinfects without chlorine residuals and eliminates the need for handling chlorine.
- Generally, the lower the pH of water, the more effective chlorine works as a disinfectant.
- Hypochlorous Acid (HOCI), also known as free chlorine, has a very low pH and is therefore very effective in water treatment compared to sodium hypochlorite, or bleach.
- Bleach used in most wastewater treatment today is toxic and corrosive, and the storage, shipping, and handling pose safety risks for any facility.
- Even in low concentrations, chlorine residuals are toxic to aquatic life.
With the ability to convert treated wastewater or seawater (with a turbidity of under 10 NTU) to hypochlorous acid and hydrogen gas, the location of the unit at any treatment facility, or near access to seawater, is ideal.
HOCI effectively and safely treats industrial and municipal water. With the growing demand for clean water and an increase in industrial activities, the popularity of HOCI for treating wastewater will continue to meet the needs of the global market.
