De Nora ClorTec® on-site sodium hypochlorite generator at Santan Vista.

De Nora will install a ClorTec® sodium hypochlorite generator train to expand the on-site sodium hypochlorite generation (OSHG) capacity of the Santan Vista Water Treatment Plant in Gilbert, Arizona, U.S.

The plant currently uses two ClorTec® units to help provide drinking water to more than 100,000 residents of the town of Gilbert and the city of Chandler. ClorTec® OSHG systems generate a 0.8% sodium hypochlorite disinfection solution, a chlorine equivalent, using three common consumables: salt, water, and electricity.

ClorTec® on-site sodium hypochlorite generation is a cost-effective, reliable, and safe alternative disinfection treatment method, with consistent chlorine concentration and residual in the treated water. ClorTec® systems could reduce a customer's carbon footprint and salt consumption by as much as 20%, and reduce the production of disinfection byproducts.
