How is Sodium Hypochlorite Made?

Sodium Hypochlorite is prepared by reacting dilute caustic soda solution with liquid or gaseous chlorine, accompanied by cooling.

Sodium Hypochlorite is commonly produced either through a batch process or through a continuous process.

Sodium Hypochlorite Batch Production System

Sodium Hypochlorite can be produced using either a batch production method, such as with the Powell Sodium Hypochlorite Batch System or in greater volumes using a continuous method.

Continuous production of sodium hypochlorite can be achieved with the Powell Continuous Sodium Hypochlorite Dry Liquid/Vapor System or with the Powell Continuous Sodium Hypochlorite System that uses wet vapor chlorine from electrolytic cells.
