Chlorination Trailers: Mobile Disinfection Solutions for Water Networks

    In the UK’s water infrastructure industry, maintaining water quality and safety is of paramount importance.

    Chlorination trailers play a crucial role in this endeavour. Providing mobile disinfection solutions for water mains, pipelines, and treatment facilities.

    These versatile units are designed to inject chlorine into water systems, ensuring the elimination of harmful bacteria and pathogens.

    What is a Chlorination Trailer?

    A chlorination trailer is a self-contained, mobile unit equipped with all the necessary components for injecting chlorine into water networks. It typically consists of a chlorine storage tank, dosing pumps, flow meters, and control systems. All mounted on a trailer for easy transportation to job sites. It’s what we use at Pipe Testing Services (PTS).

    Key Features and Components - Chlorination Trailers

    Chlorination trailers are engineered to handle various chlorine sources, including sodium hypochlorite solutions or calcium hypochlorite granules/tablets. The dosing pumps precisely meter the chlorine solution into the water stream. And the flow meters monitor and adjust the dosage rate to maintain the desired chlorine residual levels.

    The control systems on these trailers are designed for accurate and efficient operation. This ensures proper chlorine dosing and monitoring throughout the disinfection process. Their mobility and portability allow for quick deployment to different locations, making them invaluable assets for water utilities and contractors.
