Evoqua Water Technologies Launches Compact Chlorine Alternative for Water Disinfection at AWWA ACE Show

Wed, 23 May 2018 09:00 pm EDT

PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Evoqua Water Technologies' (NYSE:AQUA) Products Division today announced the launch of the OSEC® L Hypochlorite Generation System, an innovative water disinfection system that creates sodium hypochlorite on-site and on-demand.

The OSEC L hypochlorite generation system, an inherently safe alternative to chlorine, commercial bleach, and chlorine tablets, produces a dilute and stable sodium hypochlorite solution that does not require handling of any hazardous chemicals. Applications for the new OSEC L system include municipal drinking water and wastewater, industrial wastewater, food and beverage, commercial aquatics, pools, theme parks, and more.

Designed by Evoqua’s prestigious Wallace & Tiernan brand®, the OSEC L system produces a dilute hypochlorite solution <1.0 wt% concentration using saturated brine (salt), water and electricity in an electrochemical process. With an embedded process controller the system is fully automated minimizing the need for an operator interface.

The OSEC L system is compact, easy to install and easy to use. It offers push button operation, plug and play installation and a footprint roughly 50% smaller than other on-site generators.

“This is a unique disinfection solution to those looking for a safer and easier way to handle and store chemicals,” said Andrew Creathorn, VP/GM of Evoqua’s Aquatics and Disinfection division. “It’s complementary to many of our products including ETS-UV™ systems and Wallace & Tiernan chemical feed analyzers and process controllers.”

The OSEC L system will be featured at the upcoming AWWA ACE show in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 12 – 14.
