Use the simple chlorination system for wastewater disinfection calculator tool to calculate the capacity of the chlorinator at peak flow.
Cl2 (lb/d) = (Dosage) × (Avg flow) × (Peaking Factor) × (8.34)
- Dosage = dosage used to obtain coliform reduction
- Avg. Flow = average flow
- P.F. = peaking factor for average flow
- 8.34 = 8.34 lb.L/Mgal.mg
- Cl2 = Pounds of chlorine required per day (kg/d)
