De Nora receives second DTRI approval for treating potable water with chlorine dioxide
The DTRI approval comes on the heels of several major announcements in the Saudi region
WATER De Nora announced its latest approval from the Desalination Technology Research Institute (DTRI), a division of Saudi Arabia’s Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC), for its vacuum-based Capital Controls Chlorine Dioxide Generators. Testing by DTRI as part of the certification process consistently demonstrated a yield of from 95% to 97%, a ratio, which represents high efficiency production of chlorine dioxide.
This is the second approval of De Nora chlorine dioxide generation technology by DTRI. In September 2019, the patented underwater technology by De Nora ISIA was also approved with a yield of up to 98% following the same process. The combination of advanced safety features of both vacuum and underwater designs with validated high yield enables De Nora to support customers as they seek the safest and most efficient solutions to meet modern treatment needs.
“We are honored to receive this award from the renowned SWCC DTRI laboratory,” said De Nora Water Technologies CEO Dr. Mirka Wilderer. “Since bringing ISIA under the De Nora umbrella of Capital Controls disinfection technologies, our capabilities with chlorine dioxide have excelled, which is extremely important in areas with advanced treatment needs. Chlorine dioxide has proven to be highly effective at treating water while also limiting byproducts associated with desalination processes, such as bromate. We believe our technology will help providers like SWCC continue advancing their capabilities, which in turn will make a positive impact on other water stressed communities around the world looking to the region’s desal pioneers for guidance.”
De Nora vacuum chlorine dioxide generators currently range in capacity from .5 kilograms per hour to 20 kilograms, as well as offering a mobile 20foot container. De Nora Capital Controls Chlorine Dioxide Generators’ key advantage is its high efficiency rating. By operating at a 97% yield, De Nora systems require less chemicals, saving customers money and water without sacrificing effectiveness.
