OxiMax MC series - Sea Water Based Electrochlorination systems
What is OxiMax MC Series?
The OxiMax MC Series Electrochlorination Systems are designed to produce Sodium Hypochlorite (NaOCI) from seawater.These heavy duty, high performance cell use an injection moulded PVC casing and a bipolar electrode arrangement for maximum energy efficiency and NaOCI Production.
Applications :
Power Stations located next to the sea are the perfect applications for the OxiMax MC Series Electrochlorination Systems. Seawater is normally used for cooling in the condensers of thermal power stations i.e. a "once through system". Disinfection of the seawater is required to prevent biofouling from molluscs, mussels, slime and algae. The raw materials of seawater and power necessary for production of Sodium Hypochlorite are readily available - seawater is free and the power used only represents an opportunity cost.
How does OxiMax MC Series work?
A side stream of seawater is taken from the discharge of the power station cooling water pumps directly to the EC Plant. This seawater is strained to 400 micron and passed into the electrolyser cells. DC power is applied to the seawater inside the cells which results in the production of Sodium Hypochlorite (NaOCI). The OxiMax MC Series employs staged removal of the hydrogen (H2) throughout the electrolyser train via multiple hydrogen cyclones, resulting in superior NaOCI production and energy savings. All H2 is passed to either the degassing/ storage tanks or to H2 seal pots. The H2 is the diluted and purged to the atmosphere. The Sodium Hypochlorite (NaOCI) leaves the last cell and is passed to the degassing/ storage tanks where it is stored for later dosing/ shock dosing. Dosing via dosing pumps to the power station cooling water intakes prevents biofouling of the mechanical equipment such as the cooling water pumps, the bar screens, drum screens and condensers as well as the cooling water pipelines of the water pipelines of the power stations. The OxiMax MC Series system is controlled by PLC with Touch Screen operator interface for ease of control. The OxiMax MA Series system is controlled by PLC with touch screen operator interface for ease of control. The system is designed to maintain a constant level of NaOCI in the storage tank to ensure there is always enough for use in the process

Example 1
If you require 120 kg/ hr of Cl2, gas
equivalent we would offer an
MCC120000/12 =12X MCC (10 kg/hr) cells.

Example 2
If you require 40 Kg/ hr of Cl2, gas
equivalent we could offer an
MCA40000/16 = 16 X MCA (2.5 kg/hr)
cells, MCB40000/8 = 8 x MCB (5 kg/hr)
cells or MCC40000/4 = 4 x MCC (10 kg/hr) cells
Use the MCA, MCB or MCC cells as the basic building blocks to torm an entire OxiMax MC Series electrolyser train
(MCC60000 = 60 kg/hr shown)
