Emergency & Equipment Scrubber Systems
Powell Chemical Dilution Systems are designed for the continuous blending or diluting
of multiple streams of feedstock. Precise control provides accurate and repeatable
results even when blending complex recipes. Dilution systems can be operated to
produce specific batch quantities or operated continuously based on demand.
Powell Dilution Systems are designed for use with various chemicals including but not limited to:
Pressurized railcars of chlorine frequently require additional pressure to facilitate
the railcar unloading operation at user production facilities. This practice - often
called pressure padding - introduces air or nitrogen into the vapor space above
the liquid chlorine in the car to force the liquid chlorine out of the liquid angle
valve at the top of the car. Typically air, as opposed to nitrogen, is used as the
The Powell Railcar Padding System provides an independent source of clean, oil free,
dry air in accordance with The Chlorine Institute, Inc. Pamphlet 66 guidelines for
chlorine tank car pressure padding. This separate chlorine padding system is completely
isolated from other air supplies to prevent chlorine vapors from accidentally mixing
into the instruments and equipment. Built in redundant features protect equipment
in the event of power loss, compressor failure, or failure of individual components. Click here for more information.
As a general rule of thumb, for every 10 degrees C increase of solution temperature, sodium hypochlorite will decompose a factor of 3.5 times faster. With the Powell Sodium Hypochlorite Chilling System, temperatures of the sodium hypochlorite solution can easily be chilled from 90°F to 60°F or lower, thus increasing the time the received shipment of sodium hypochlorite can be stored and used by the municipality.
