Chlorine Dioxide Generator Optimization
The effective operation of a chlorine dioxide generator requires continuous coordination of multiple reagent addition rates and steam heating rates.

The effective operation of a chlorine dioxide generator requires continuous coordination of multiple reagent addition rates and steam heating rates.

Any deviation from design operating conditions can lead to side reactions (waste of reagents), poor product strength, and potentially dangerous scenarios. This is a complex task for even the most skilled operators, who must constantly manage the addition of multiple reagents and steam heating rates under dynamic reaction conditions.

Our advanced chlorine dioxide generator control and optimization strategy provides a comprehensive approach to this application.

Automatically manage ClO2 generation, maximize reaction efficiency, and ensure safe and stable operating conditions. Our expert solution utilizes a model-based, multivariable control strategy to effectively coordinate reactant feed rates and steam heating rates in order to achieve the target production in the most safe, stable, and efficient manner possible. Improved stability of the ClO2 generator provides not only significant safety improvements and equipment robustness, but also directly results in reagent cost savings. By operating the generator at designed operating conditions (which include specific generator content concentrations and levels), reaction efficiency can improve by as much as 5% due to the decreased formation of undesirable side reaction byproducts.
