The HydroACT Reagentless Chlorine Analyzer takes online disinfection monitoring to a new level of reliability by offering industry-leading performance, an excellent track record of EPA Method 334.0 compliance, reduced pH dependency, and no requirement for zero calibration. Chemtrac’s line of membrane covered Free and Total Chlorine sensors have no moving parts, no bottles of reagent to change out monthly, and quarterly maintenance takes less than five minutes to perform.
Having accurate, reliable, and real-time chlorine monitoring, both in the water treatment plant, and in the distribution system, is critical. Check out this two-minute customer testimonial video profiling a municipality that decided to use Chemtrac chlorine analyzers throughout their distribution system. This was only after the operations personnel first experienced the reliability of the units that were installed in the plant, and then realized over time just how easy the analyzers were to maintain.

Having accurate, reliable, and real-time chlorine monitoring, both in the water treatment plant, and in the distribution system, is critical.
The Chemtrac Chlorine Analyzers take online disinfection monitoring to a new level of rleiability. They are accurate, pH independent, and offer a low cost of ownership with a full 12 months between maintenance events. These analyzers are suitable for regulatory reporting purposes when used in compliance with EPA Method 334.
Properly assembling the chlorine sensor is critical to the operation of the chlorine analyzer. This video demonstrates the appropriate way to set up the probe with the electrolyte, and the membrane cap. And this procedure also applies to other membrane-covered sensors, such as total chlorine, chlorine dioxide, chlorite, and ozone.
The chlorine sensor flow cell is designed to direct the proper sample flow past the membrane in order to ensure accurate and consistent results. This flow cell is also used with a variety of membrane-covered sensors such as free chlorine, total chlorine, chlorine dioxide, chlorite, and ozone.
A Water Treatment Plant in Auburn, AL has the need to monitor free chlorine onsite, as well as at remote locations in the distribution system, where they do not want to have to use reagents. They fist ordered a Chemtrac Reagent-less Free Chlorine analyzer in 2009, and have since purchased several more for other monitoring locations.
