A system was installed at the Ein kerem well #16 Neighborhood of Jerusalem in Israel by Mekorot, the Israeli national Water Company in 2015. The purpose of the system was to replace the existing hypochlorite disinfection system at the well.
The system was a subject of a year long study to determine its performance. The study concluded that:
1 – The system consistently provided 0.4ppm of chlorine as requested to 140 m3/hr well water.
2 – The self cleaning mechanism proved to be efficient, and there was no need to clean the electrodes
3 – Water quality parameters were not negatively affected by the system, and conformed the
The system is in use at the well since the installation.
Below is a video of the installation.
Towns in Israel’s ARAVA region enjoy clear and safe water treated on-site by CQM’s SRDW drinking water electro-chlorination system. Israel’s national water company MEKOROT, selected CQM’s technology for the purification of water treated by reverse-osmosis to provide drinking water consumed in towns in the south of the country.
Potabilization of desalinated brackish waters from underground water resources.
SRDW equipment of varying capacities.
Israel’s national water company MEKOROT is responsible by law to provide fresh water all around the country including remote towns. Their concern over the transport, handling and storage of chlorine gas and purchased hypochlorite, led Mekorot to seek an economical alternativ e to potabilize water at facilities close by to the consumers.
Since the installation of the SRDW, the supply of fresh, purified water has been uninterrupted and economically handled.
