Improve Chlorine Disinfection with Online DPD Analyzers

Begins: 08 Nov 2021 12:00 AM EDT
Ends: 08 Nov 2021 1:00 PM EDT
Presenter(s): Ben Barker and Justin King


Chlorine is a powerful disinfectant that has been used in water treatment processes for over 100 years. When applying chlorine disinfection to wastewater, careful control of dosing is vital to meet effluent discharge limits and avoid overdosing on chlorine. Using a DPD chlorine analyzer, online chlorine analysis is an effective method to control dosing with great accuracy and reliability.

Learn how to:

  1. Describe how chlorine removes pathogens from water and why it is the most common disinfection method.
  2. Explain chlorine behavior in wastewater and how to dose chlorine properly.
  3. Describe how DPD chlorine analyzers can monitor and control chlorine disinfection in wastewater treatment.

Who should watch:

Wastewater engineers, operators, instrument technicians, and superintendents who want to learn more about chlorine disinfection with online DPD chlorine analyzers.
