Drinking Water

Meet Triteia, a new chemical dissolving solution that brings unprecedented accuracy, control capabilities and process quality to the field of water treatment with unique and specially designed functions for drinking water chlorination.

  • Highest level of accuracy and reliability using a unique and innovative dosing feeder together with continuous process measurements and control. Triteia drinking water chlorination systems ensure the most accurate water disinfection to fit your process quality requirements, as well as simple and reliable operations.

  • Control your system from wherever you are to streamline your chlorination process and save operational and chemical costs. Triteia systems offer local and remote control capabilities as well as pre-programmed monitoring and logging functions.

  • Easily adapted to different typical drinking water process characteristics and drinking water supply regulatory requirements for a wide range of capacities.

  • Compact and efficient system design for simple and safe installation, operation and maintenance. Triteia’s rigid yet lightweight structures are built of chemically-resistant materials; and Triteia systems can be easily fitted into existing waterworks even under the most demanding site conditions.

Due to the potential of micro-biological contamination in water sources, supply pipelines and water reservoirs, drinking water disinfection is one of the most important factors in the water supply and treatment process – especially in warm climates.

Although alternative disinfection technologies exist, chlorination by liquid sodium hypochlorite is still commonly used for drinking water disinfection because of its relative simplicity, availability, and low cost.

However, the use of liquid sodium hypochlorite poses multiple challenges mainly related to the handling and storage of the high volumes required. Use of granular chlorine solves these challenges due to the higher concentration of its active component and its higher stability.

The importance of accuracy in drinking water disinfection

Accuracy is critical to drinking water disinfection by chlorination. Though they differ per country, the acceptable range of residual chlorine values for drinking water is usually quite narrow. Typical threshold values for drinking water disinfection at the point of water treatment range from 0.2 to 0.6 ppm chlorine, with the desired values falling into an even narrower range.

Any deviation from these values means either low disinfection efficiency or excess chlorination, which is problematic in terms of human health.

This means that to ensure accuracy in drinking water disinfection by chlorination, the concentration of the hypochlorite solution must be both accurate and stable.



What to look for in a drinking water disinfection system

A drinking water disinfection system must be accurate and controllable according to process variables such as flow rate and water quality, as well as other process parameters and settings.

Moreover, as drinking water distribution plants and water disinfection systems operate continuously (24/7 or in on/off mode), drinking water disinfection systems must be available for operation at any moment when water is supplied and must react rapidly to dynamic changes in process variables.



Triteia – the accurate and affordable alternative to liquid sodium hypochlorite systems­­­­­­

Triteia brings an innovative solution to the world of water treatment – an accurate and reliable, yet simple and affordable granular chlorination system for the disinfection of drinking water.

Using specially designed models and unique functions, Triteia chlorination systems can be integrated with various drinking water supply systems – from large regional, municipal water pumping and distribution plants, to smaller water supply systems used in small villages, industrial plants, airports, military bases, hospitals and hotels.

Triteia systems are compact and simple to operate, and suitable for small to large water supply volumes and capacities. They are compatible with standard control and communication methods and various regulatory requirements. Their structure makes them the perfect solution for outdoor installations with protection against harsh environmental conditions such as rain and direct sunlight (according to technical specifications).

Ideal for smaller and remote water supply stations

Drinking water supply is not limited to large regional and municipal water supply stations. It can also come from smaller, local and decentralized pumping stations in remote areas and from ground or surface water sources.

Triteia systems offer multiple benefits for such smaller and remote water supply stations that get their water from ground or surface water sources with a higher concentration of organic and microbiological matter, thus requiring much higher levels of disinfection.

For example, a small Triteia S50 chlorination system can continuously and reliably disinfect approximately 30,000 CUM of natural surface water for drinking, between refills of 50 kg of granular chlorine.

Triteia systems are compact, designed for outdoor installation, use an extremely low amount of energy and only require minimal operational attention or maintenance.

Safe with Minimal Environmental Impact

The low concentration and fast degradation of the free active chlorine in liquid sodium hypochlorite impose operational, economic and environmental challenges.

In contrast, granular chlorine has a higher and stable concentration of the active chlorine which lowers transportation and storage costs as well as environmental and safety risks.

Triteia brings an innovative, comprehensive and cost-effective solution for using accurately and reliably granular chlorine at the point of use.
