While Chlorine is a commonly monitored parameter in water treatment, do we really understand the mechanism that Chlorine uses to achieve disinfection? Or do we just accept and test? Understanding the background of the way in which Chlorine interacts with other components of the water system is fundamental to choosing the correct test for the application.
Since its identification in 1894, as a potential additive to water to eliminate germs, our understanding of Chlorine’s behaviors and conditions needed to be effective have developed.
Over the last 100 years there have been several methods tried, tested and used. In this session we will discuss all the current methods being used, their application, interferences, pros, and cons and will unravel some of the mystery surrounding the reagent names and techniques.
