Sacrificial electrodes (anodes and cathodes) completely dissolve before passivation. They are inexpensive and easy to replace.
Process water and wastewater treatment technologies vary widely with different degrees of effectiveness. Many of them are based on a single principle that has been improved through numerous trials and successes.
Thincell®, from Water Vision, Inc., represents a paradigm shift in the proven electrocoagulation principle. As a different type of electrochemical process, it operates like nothing else ever developed in that segment of water treatment.
Thincell technology uses patented, proprietary coated anodes and cathodes that eliminate detrimental scale build up and passivation. Thincell’s sacrificial bi-polar metal electrodes are completely consumable and replaceable. They release metallic ions to form an in-situ coagulant that destabilizes fluid contaminants and breaks emulsions. The coagulants form large flocculants that rise to the top of the Thincell process chamber for easy removal.
The end result for the Thincell solution is a new, more robust method of cost effectively treating contaminants from process water and waste water.
