With their permission, this document was imported from the Powell Fabrication & Manufacturing Co. website at www.powellfab.com. It was jointly developed by Dr. Bernard Bubnis of Novachem and Powell Fabrication and contains standard laboratory testing procedures for performing various analyses on sodium hypochlorite including trade/weight percent determination of sodium hypochlorite, excess sodium hydroxide, sodium carbonate and sodium chlorate. To open a PDF document of the analyses, click on link above.
Both FRP and HDLPE tanks are suitable for the storage of bulk sodium hypochlorite and both have their advantages and disadvantages. FRP tanks are typically manufactured to a specification while HDPLE tanks are sold in a variety of standard sizes. A suggested FRP specification can be downloaded here.
This EXCEL spreadsheet can be used to calculate the percentage of bromate in potable drinking water based on various inputs including the chlorine feed rate (in ppm), the concentration of bromate in the sodium hypochlorite (in ppm) and the strength of the sodium hypochlorite (in gpl). Bromate is regulated in all drinking water beginning in January 2004 with a maximum MCL of 10 ppb. Current ANSI/NSF 60 standards limit the contribution from a disinfectant such as sodium hypochlorite to 50% or 5 ppb. There is a pending proposal to lower this amount to 30% in January 2013 and to 10% in the future. Click here to open the EXCEL spreadsheet.
