The complete, NSF-certified Accu-Tab® system combines specially-engineered chlorine feeders with quality controlled three-inch calcium hypochlorite (cal hypo) tablets. Accu-Tab chlorinators are solidly built. Each durable, corrosion-resistant chlorinator is handcrafted in the U.S. using high-quality PVC. Accu-Tab chlorinators—which use only Accu-Tab three-inch tablets—have have few moving parts, use no proprietary parts and have no small openings that can clog.
KILL BACTERIA, FIGHT MOLD AND CONTROL ALGAE IN AGRICULTURAL WATER
Farms and nurseries face the threat of hidden dangers in agricultural water every day. Bacteria including E. coliand Salmonella can result in foodborne illnesses, while water molds like Phytophthora and Pythium that stay in the soil can have devastating effects on plants and crops.
Safe. Simple. Effective.
The Accu-Tab® tablet chlorination system offers a safer, versatile, and low-maintenance solution for improved operational performance of irrigation systems. Effectively chlorinating well water, surface water and reuse water supplies used for irrigation purposes, the Accu-Tab system kills harmful bacteria and fights water molds. In addition, the Accu-Tab system helps to reduce maintenance by controlling algae and iron build-up that can cause drip line clogs in irrigation systems.
With very low capital costs, the system is easy to install at multiple irrigation sites. The Accu-Tab system integrates with any type of irrigation system, including spray, overhead, drip and center pivot.
Horticulture and Agriculture Uses
Amid an increasing number of states imposing regulations within the horticultural industry, RFID technology in the agricultural industry and the financial impact and hardship associated with crop loss and product recalls, both horticultural and agricultural communities benefit from the value and effectiveness of the Accu-Tab system. Thousands of farms and nurseries across North and Central America rely on the Accu-Tab system as a dependable and simple solution.
SAFETY - Reduced risk of spills/leaks; no need for expensive safety systems or secondary spill containment
MATERIAL COMPATIBILITY – More neutral pH and less corrosive
DELIVERY CONTROL – Automated for consistent strength
STORAGE CONVENIENCE – Pails stack for convenience, use less space than drums or cylinders and do not require a separate room
MAINTENANCE – Few moving parts within chlorinator; in most cases, maintenance needed once per year
Accu-Tab systems can be installed as a gravity return system—where the chlorinator is located at an elevation higher than the point the chlorinated solution is returned to the main water stream—or, as a pressure return system—utilizing a centrifugal pump to re-inject the chlorinated solution back into the main water line.
Gravity Return Systems for industrial chlorinator models
A gravity return system can be specified when the chlorine effluent is to be returned to the main water stream in an open tank, channel, or filter and when the chlorinator can be physically located at an elevation higher than the re-injection point. The system routes a sidestream of the main water flow through a simple rotameter and valve used to adjust the flow of the chlorinator. The water contacts only the tablets at the bottom of the feeder, so tablets at the top stay dry while those contacting the water erode at a predictable rate according to the amount of water that enters the chlorinator. Highly accurate chlorine dosage is achieved simply by controlling the water flow rate.
Because nothing moves but the water, the PowerPro® gravity return system represents the ultimate in reliability with negligible capital costs. The non-pressurized system also eliminates the potential of chlorinated solution spraying out of a corroded or broken pipe.
Pressure Return Systems for industrial chlorinator models
A pressure return system is required when the chlorinator effluent must be directed to multiple locations or when the chlorinated stream is to be re-injected to a pressurized tank or line. Our PowerPro® pressure return system removes a sidestream of the main water flow and introduces a portion of it into the chlorinator, where Accu-Tab tablets are eroded at a controlled rate. A centrifugal pump re-injects the resulting chlorinated solution back into the main water line. This sidestream loop is nearly identical to the familiar chlorine gas injection system but without the danger and the hassle.
Each PowerPro pressure return system comes complete with valves, piping, pumps, surge tanks, and the electronic controls necessary to dose the desired amount of chlorine into the main water system. Systems are also available with multiple chlorinators, automatic controllers, and SCADA compatibility.
