Technologies and services for electrochemical disinfection of water
Permascand’s Water Treatment segment includes products for electrochemical disinfection of water. For the time being primarily within the marine sector and treatment of ballast water for ships. The range also includes standard systems with other areas of application such as industrial water treatment (OSD) and swimming pools and more. Permascand is one of the largest suppliers of electrochlorination cells for ballast water treatment systems (BTWS) all over the world.
There are several methods to disinfect water based upon use of chlorine, UV or other chemicals. We have focused our knowledge, experience and development on the safest method to disinfect water, which is by using an electrochemical system.
On-site sodium hypochlorite generator
Electrochlorination is the process of generating sodium hypochlorite using only seawater and electricity. The salt from the seawater is electrochemically converted to sodium hypochlorite in an undivided electrolytic cell unit by passing direct current. This provides an effective method for water disinfection and ensure both safe transportation and handling.
Permascand WTS PermaChlor® sodium hypochlorite generation cells and systems are cost effective, reliable and have been designed for an easy operation with an optimum production of sodium hypochlorite.

Ballast Water Treatment
Our PermaChlor® electrochlorination technology is an important part of our IMO-certified ballast water treatment systems. Very efficient and suitable for vessels that need large capacities.
PermaClor® Buffer System is the chlorinator best suited when the hypochlorite requirement is more varied. Production volume is easy to regulate and our systems stores no unnecessary hypochlorite, only the amount required by the facility for the upcoming day. Suitable for facilities with numerous water systems.
