How Electrochlorination Systems Work to Prevent Biofouling

Water, water, everywhere: When you’re at sea, one of the most precious commodities you need to produce and protect is, somewhat ironically, clean water. Your offshore rig or vessel depends upon disinfected, pure seawater to keep all of your seawater utility systems running safely and efficiently. One way to ensure effectiveness and efficiency is to reduce or prevent any instances of biofouling in your rig’s seawater utility systems.

Your vessel’s electrochlorination units work to reduce biofouling in your system’s pipes, heat exchangers, and firewater systems. These treatment systems also prevent biofouling in your system’s pipes, pumps, and heat exchangers. It even reduces corrosion from microbes present in seawater, leading to system durability and longevity. 

In short, investing in a good electrochlorination system is a good way to ensure that your rig’s seawater utility systems run smoothly. 

Interested in what’s going on behind the scenes? Here’s what you need to know about how electrochlorination systems work:

Why Is My Seawater Hypochlorite Generator Not Producing The Concentration I Want?

Why is my seawater hypochlorite generator not producing the concentration I want? The short answer to the that question is to stop worrying about concentration (how strong the hypochlorite is) and instead understand your plant’s specified generating capacity, which is typically rated as the mass of hypochlorite generated over a period of time. This is typically measured in kg/hour or lbs/day generated.
