Emergency Dechlorination Mats and Bags
   
Mesh Bag24TabletAct2

Great for emergencies or measures of last resort.

In a main break situation, chlorinated potable water may be flooding to where it will reach sensitive receiving waters.

First responders can use the Dechlormats to achieve significant dechlorination until the situation can be brought under control.

The Mats and Strips are constructed from coated polyester fabric. The Dechlor Bags have heavy-duty grommets to enable you to stake down the mat.

   
   
Dechlormat has 24 pockets and 8 heavy duty grommets that can be tent staked into the ground to keep the bag in place.
DECHLORMATHV is bright Orange and has 24 pockets and 8 heavy duty grommets that can be tent staked into the ground.
   
   

Dechlorstrip has 6 pockets and 2 heavy duty grommets.

Orange Dechlorstrip has 6 pockets and
2 heavy duty grommets.
   
   
Keep your Emergency Dechlorinating Bags in place and channel water over the tablets using either a Snap or Tie Bag and Gravel.
These bags are 4" Wide x 30" Long and work better than sand bags as they don't leak sand.

Our Dechlorinating Bags and Sleeves work well for situations where and when nothing else will work and should be used with 4 ppm or less chlorinated water. Our thought is that some measure of dechlorination is better than none. Available in 6 or 24 tablet sizes they work well with LDP-CHLOR or Vita-D-Chlor Tablets.

 

ESTIMATING THE NUMBER OF TABLETS NEEDED
The typical scenario when using Dechlormats involves getting a situation under control. Chlorinated water is escaping either into a ditch or creek bed or it may enter a storm drain intercept. The problem is that chlorinated water may be reach sensitive receiving waters.

How many tablets are required?

Usually it is a case of "the more the better." One LPD-Chlor tablet will neutralize 16,000 gallons of water at Cl2 = 1 ppm, but to achieve this, it must be completely dissolved and thoroughly mixed. In a flowing situation, the rate at which a tablet will dissolve depends upon the rate at which water is flowing over it.

The capacity to neutralize depends on how much water flows per tablet. In practice, one should channel the water so that the stream flows over the full width of the Dechlormat. If the stream is more than a few inches thick, a second Dechlormat should be put in series with the first mat.

If possible, collect and test a sample 20 or 30 feet down stream of the mats. This will demonstrate if more tablets/mats are required. When the tablets reach half their original size, new tablets should be added.
