Is less better than more? It might be in most cases, but in the case of disinfection chemicals, using less chemical to complete the job is always better than using more. On Site Hypochlorite Generation could be your answer.
Chlorine gas is usually the disinfection chemical of choice for municipal potable water and wastewater systems due to its low cost and ease of maintenance.
However, the hazardous status of chlorine gas and its potential as a terrorist target are driving many facilities to consider alternative disinfection methods. The decision frequently comes down to a choice between commercial sodium hypochlorite delivered in bulk and sodium hypochlorite on-site generators (OSG’s).
Below is a white paper that shows why on-site generators are a more favorable solution than delivered hypo, with a better safety record, more favorable lifecycle costs, ease of operation and maintenance, and an improved carbon footprint. Addresses in the paper are the following factors:
- Operation & Maintenance
- Environmental Impact

We are proud to announce that our exclusive partner, Parkson, has upgraded a water recycling facility in Hawaii with the MaximOS™ sodium hypochlorite generator on-site generation disinfection system that will deliver immediate savings in operating costs while maintaining the highest water quality standards.
John Deogracias, Parkson’s Commercial Leader for MaximOS said, “The three largest expenses for any plant are labor, power and chemicals. The technology behind MaximOS is state of the art and allows for the most reliable and efficient means to support the water recycling facility operator’s O&M budget.”
The Hawaiian water recycling facility is an award-winning site that serves a critical function on the island, by helping to preserve the state’s valuable drinking water supplies. The 13 million gallons/day facility relies on MaximOS and other technologies to facilitate irrigation by the municipal government and supply process water for a power plants and oil refinery water.

Common chemical oxidation methods for hydrogen sulfide (H2S), an odor causing chemical formed by the action of anaerobic bacteria in water and wastewater systems include chlorine, hydrogen peroxide and ozone. Case studies and laboratory studies performed to date show that Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) tends to speed reaction rates or drive oxidation reactions to completion compared to sodium hypochlorite.
The oxidation of H2S is a two part reaction in which elemental sulfur (S0 ) is an intermediate before reaching the fully oxidized state as sulfuric acid (H2SO4). S0 is a solid that must be filtered in municipal applications, so if the reaction cannot be driven to completion with hypochlorite, additional capital equipment must be purchased. With sufficient dosing, MOS does not require a detention tank, filter system, and head can be maintained from the wells to distribution.
- Cl2 + H2S = 2HCl + S0 (reaction may stop here if the hypochlorite dose is not high enough)
- S0 + 3Cl2 + 4H2O = 6HCl + H2SO4
The combined reaction is: H2S + 4Cl2 + 4H2O = 8HCl + H2SO4
MIOX and odor control in wastewater systems: In 2013, a MIOX MOS Zuni system replaced a bleach caustic chemical program in the trickling filter and scrubber system of a wastewater treatment plant in the state of Washington. Since its installation, there have been no complaints from nearby neighbors concerning odors from the plant. The MOS is also used to prevent ponding, or excessive growth of biological material in the media of the filter. Since the introduction of the Zuni system, which uses only salt and power to generate the Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS), the operators have ceased using the caustic, providing a both safety and cost advantage. MIOX MOS was used also used to successfully replace hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in a sewer collection system, decreasing the H2S concentrations from 15 mg/L to non-detectable. Because of the distributed nature of the wastewater collection system, using a small OSG system that can be remotely monitored often provides operational flexibility.
MIOX and Advanced Oxidation Processes: More recently, MOX’s on-site generators were used in combination with UV to produce hydroxyl radicals. This process is called an Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) and was used to remove MIB (2-methylisoborneol), an odor causing algal byproduct from the intake water at a large municipal facility in the United States.
