Chlor-Alkali Process by INEOS Technologies

BICHLOR electrolysers are used to produce chlorine, sodium hydroxide (or potassium hydroxide) and hydrogen by the electrolysis of sodium chloride (or potassium chloride) solutions. BICHLOR electrolysers are state-of-the art, having zero electrode gap and separate anode and cathode compartments ensuring the highest product quality at the lowest electrical energy usage.

Chlor-Alkali Process by INEOS Technologies

Basic electrolyser chemistry:
Key features:

Low power consumption:
• Zero Gap electrode configuration
• Uniform current and electrolyte distribution
• Sub structure designed to reduce electrical resistance
• Use of low resistance high performance membranes

Low maintenance costs:
• Modular technology minimises down time and personnel
• Long life electrode coatings
• Electrodes can be re-coated “IN PAN”
