De Nora has achieved NSF/ANSI 61 certification for its ClorTec®T Series On-Site Sodium Hypochlorite Generation System (OSHGS).

NSF/ANSI 61 sets health effects criteria for drinking water system components. Testing and review by NSF confirms that contaminants that could migrate or leach from the product into drinking water is below the maximum levels allowed to be considered safe. Compliance to this standard is required by most government agencies that regulate drinking water supplies and applies to water supply components made, sold or distributed in the US.

The ClorTec T Series OSHGS offers a simple method to control the production of sodium hypochlorite and provide a disinfection method for a variety of applications, including low capacity municipal wells, water and wastewater treatment plants, odor and corrosion control, cooling towers, oxidation and swimming pool disinfection.

“Beyond the technological leadership in electrochemistry and the proven reliability of the ClorTec T Series System, De Nora is proud to be recognized for meeting the important health standards required to earn NSF/ANSI 61 Certification,” says Brian Shugrue, De Nora director of sales, Americas. “We are committed to the highest level of safety in all of our products and look forward to sharing this significant designation with our customers.”

The ClorTec T Series OSHGS uses tubular DSA® electrodes to generate 0.8% sodium hypochlorite by combining three common consumables – salt, water and electricity – yielding sodium hypochlorite and hydrogen gas in a safe and cost-efficient manner. The system meets the production requirements for 2.7-16 kg/d (6-36 lb/d) chlorine equivalent, and its modular design allows for easy installation, servicing and expansion as needed.
