What is chlorination of water and how does it work?
Instructions for using the utility to calculate the dose of chlorine disinfectant by pictures
Calculator utility interface
Step 1: Enter the input water flow to be treated, the unit is m3/h
Step 2: Enter the dose of chlorine to be added to the water, the unit is mg/l, g/m3 or ppm,…
This index is highly dependent on the quality of the input water and requires residual chlorine content after dosing. The most common is to choose 2-4mg/l for domestic water, 7-10mg/l for wastewater or maybe higher (just recommended)
Step 3: Enter the initial chlorine concentration in %.
For example, when buying powdered chlorine, there will be information on the chlorine concentration on the barrel, if it write 70%, then you enter the number 70
Step 4: Enter the operating time, in units of h/day.
This is the time the water treatment system operates in 1 day, it can be 6, 10, 15, 20, 24 h/day
Step 5: Enter the cycle for refill chemical, units of days.
This is the cycle time you need to refill chemicals once, for example, if you want to refill every 10 days, choose 10
Step 6: Enter the volume of chemical mixing tank, unit L.
On the right is the column that returns the results
- The amount of chlorine chemical used for 1 hour is 30g/h
- The amount of chlorine chemical used for 1 day is 0.72kg/day (this is the amount of chemical consumed according to the undiluted concentration)
- Amount of chemicals to be mixed into the tank: 7.2kg for each mixing
- Concentration of chemicals after mixing: 1%
- Chlorine flow to be filled: 3 liters / h, this is the flow you set for the dosing pump to dose the water
