Severn Trent De Nora (an acquisition of Eltech or Exceltec International Corp) Australia SANILEC Offshore Electrochlorination Water Treatment System generate sodium hypochlorite from seawater using an extensively field-proven electrochemical process suited for biofouling control in water flood, cooling water and fire water loops. They range in capacity from 2.8 to 2,400 lb/day (.05 to 45.4 kg/hr).

On-site generation of sodium hypochlorite is an economical and safe method to produce this powerful biocide and disinfecting agent in offshore and marine applications. When injected into the cooling water circuits, on-site generated sodium hypochlorite solution provides efficient protection to the equipment against the growth of organic fouling (micro and macro).
This occurs without the undesirable side effects of commercial hypochlorite (such as the build up of hard deposits by reaction of excess alkalinity with the substances dissolved in water) or the safety hazard connected with the transportation, storage and handling of chlorine gas.
Because this technology eliminates dependency upon outside suppliers and the heavy costs of purchased commercial sproducts, it finds application in a broad spectrum of offshore facilities requiring biofouling control of seawater systems.
