USING CALCIUM THIOSULFATE FOR DECHLORINATION
Abstract:A new approach to dechlorination is gaining recognition in the industry as a safe, clean, non-toxic and non-hazardous process, solving a number of problems faced by water treatment personnel. Case histories of several treatment plants illustrate the solutions to each plant's problems. For those concerned with worker and community safety, replacing gases under pressure with liquids, including calcium thiosulfate, met their needs. Others had toxicity, corrosion and crystallization problems all solved by the new approach. Added advantages: Not DOT regulated. Tank containment, heating and insulation are not needed for calcium thiosulfate, except in extremely cold areas.
