We of the Company have conceived, designed and manufactured a small size membrane bipolar electrolyzer ELM 0.4 in order to provide customers with a reliable, highly efficient and flexible device suitable to produce on site small (and also very small) quantities of chlorine, caustic soda and hydrogen to be directly converted, if needed, to bulk sodium hypochlorite solution (“bleach”) or to hydrochloric acid solution or used for any other required application.
Why bipolar? Because, due to the assembly of many elementary cells in the same stack, the bipolar arrangement results in a lower cost of hardware, lower power consumption, lower plant area allowing a easy modulation of the electrolyzer output through the number of elementary cells assembled in one stack.
Is simple and reliable. The ELM 0.4 electrolyzer is supplied assembled in standard modules “Chlorplus unit” whose outputs are: chlorine, membrane grade 32% caustic soda and hydrogen.
• One module daily production (kg):
- Chlorine: 500-1500
- Caustic soda (NaOH): 564-1680
- Hydrogen: 14-42
• One module main raw materials consumption per metric ton NaOH:
- Salt (vacuum salt 99.9% NaCl): 1,5 ton
- Demiwater: 630 liters
- NaOH (100% basis): 60 kg
- HCl (100% basis): 90 kg
• Maximum output of modularized units:
Production capacities beyond 3 tons per day may require the adoption of larger electrolyzers. Please consult P.F.I.'s commercial departement.
