PSI Water Technologies- UGSI; PSI, Microclor, PAX, Monoclor - manufactures an On‐site generation disinfection system that applies electricity to a solution of salt and water to produce sodium hypochlorite. Incoming water first goes through a softener, then splits into two lines. One line goes to the electrolytic cell, where electricity is applied to the brine solution, and the other goes to a brine storage tank. Near‐saturated brine is injected into the softened water that is going to the electrolytic cell. A current is passed through the electrolytic cell, producing sodium hypochlorite, which is stored in another tank, then metered into the water moving through the treatment process. Hydrogen gas is a natural byproduct of the electrolytic process and must be removed from the cell and storage tank.
While the competitors offered similar products, Process Solutions, Inc. (PSI) offered additional benefits that were important, particularly the safety aspect of PSI’s hydrogen‐purging design. In PSI’s Microclor® on‐site generator, the electrolytic cells are configured in a patented vertical format with a recirculation loop on each cell that allows for passive release of the hydrogen gas from each individual cell. This design increases operator safety and reduces the possibility of hydrogen gas build‐up in the cell.
Another key factor of PSI’s system is the ability to remove one electrolytic cell without going offline. The Microclor® vertical cell design allows the cell to be removed from the cell carrier piping by simply breaking two unions, making for easy cell maintenance or replacement and increased redundancy.
