Reaction Tower for Hypochloride
When preparing the chlorine solution in the chlorine
gas ejector, in addition to hypochloric acid (HClO),
hydrochloric acid is produced as well in the motive
Installation and operation
The reaction tower is to be installed directly after
the ejector outlet in an upright position. A pressure
loss of about 0.2 bar in the reaction tower has to be
taken into consideration for the ejector configuration.
Besides, it must be ensured that the reaction tower
is always filled sufficiently with granulated marble
(at least 30%), which is decreasing because of the aforementioned
The marble consumption can be determined as a function
of water hardness, flow and chlorine gas volume using
the following formula.
