The challenge of controlling microbiological activity is often the most difficult phase of water treatment. Due to changes in demand and limitations of current testing technology the system is subjected to a series of overfeed/underfeed situations. The relative effective of the oxidant (work value) must be taken into account to achieve automated control. The redox technology (ORP or Oxidation Reduction Potential Technology) is able to control by measuring electron transfer that occurs in the oxidation reaction. The result is technology that continuously monitors the efficacy of any oxidizing microbiocide program and adjusts oxidant feed automatically based on system cleanliness and demand.
