The Chlorine Injector Station (CIS) is used in automated watering systems for laboratory animals and is a panel-mounted assembly that adds chlorine to water used for Recoil Hose Flush Stations (RHFS), Reverse Osmosis Systems, and other applications which have a stable water flow. This station is also suitable for acidification applications.
The CIS has a solution tank, injector pump, mixing chamber, control panel, and other components which inject a chlorine solution into water as it flows through the station. A selector switch disables the pump for plain water flow.
It is adaptable to a range of flow rates, but there must be a stable flow for each application set-up. The concentration of solution in the water is adjustable via pump settings.
The CIS is available as a stand-alone station (Model 301), as a special station (Model 302) to be used only with the Edstrom Automatic RHFS (Model 5480), and as a special station (Model 901) to be used with a Reverse Osmosis Machine.
While chlorine must be removed from the inlet (feed) water before it enters the membranes, post treatment water chlorination can be used to prevent bacteria growth in the storage tank. The permeate can be chlorinated up to 10 ppm. Edstrom recommends chlorinating at a level of 2 to 3 ppm. Chlorination is accomplished with a chlorine injection pump and a solution tank filled with diluted bleach. The chlorine injection pump automatically operates when water is flowing into the storage tank. Post chlorine is injected between the machine’s permeate water outlet and the storage tank inlet.
