Chlorine Dioxide Sensor Enables Safe, Effective Water Disinfection

(Endress+Hauser)

Endress+Hauser’s Memosens CCS50D chlorine dioxide sensor supports safe and effective disinfection for clean drinking water, pathogen-free cooling water and high-quality process water. Systematic disinfection is essential in water treatment and legally required in many areas. However, high doses of disinfectants such as chlorine and chlorine dioxide can be toxic. The Memosens CCS50D chlorine dioxide sensor helps to achieve a safe and efficient disinfection by providing stable and fast measured values.

 

The chlorine dioxide sensor features a convex membrane made of dense, dirt-repellent material which prevents soiling and makes it extremely resistant to biofouling. Ultrasonic welding of the membrane to the sensor cap ensures its integrity, preventing dilution of the electrolyte. This guarantees long-term stable measurements and gives a plant manager the security that the disinfection process is running smoothly and the required results are achieved.

 

The Memosens CCS50D is able to deliver reliable disinfection measurements at low flow rates. In combination with the Flowfit CCA151 assembly, for example, the required flow rate is as low as 1.3 gal/h (5 l/h), which means only a minimum amount of water is consumed in the bypass and the required disposal capacities are reduced.
