One of the big disadvantages of electrocoagulation in its typical application is passivation, or corrosion of the aluminum or metal plates that serve as electrodes. This happens almost immediately and reduces the effectiveness of water treatment by increasing circuit resistance. Eventually, the plates must be acid washed or replaced entirely, a timely and costly undertaking.
Thincell Technology solves the problem by replacing traditional electrodes with completely bipolar sacrificial multivalent electrodes. When paired with non-corroding anodes and cathodes, the sacrificial electrodes degrade inside the machine during water treatment until they’re completely consumed. The entire system is housed inside a pressurized container that features a specially designed electrical transfer system, and a fluidized bed that optimizes flow consistency.
Wherever people need clean water, Thincell can help. Our patented technology can be put to use providing drinking water to the largest cities, or breaking down the toughest sediments and bacteria in water utilized in oil and gas production. Thincell’s adaptability to variable conditions makes it the perfect choice for companies in a wide variety of industries.
Thanks to its increased efficiency and lower operating costs, Thincell Technology is significantly less expensive than traditional EC units. The equipment is all-around easier to operate, requiring less downtime, less physical space, less power, and fewer man-hours to run.
An electrochemical (EC) process is a water treatment process used by a variety of industries to destabilize and aggregate contaminant particles, ions such as heavy metals and colloids using an electrical charge and removing them from solution.learn more
