The FADICLUR project aims to respond to the problems that occur in relation to chlorination systems in urban water distribution networks. These problems are caused by inefficiencies in the chlorination processes that lead to concentration gradients or the appearance of the phenomenon of “flux pistó” within the network pipes. The increased use of reagents to guarantee the minimum sanitary chlorine levels in water also facilitates the appearance of unwanted chlorine by-products. To respond to these challenges, the FADICLUR project is working on the design and printing of a chlorine pre-mixing tank that will help to improve the administration of chlorine in the networks. This dipole will be built by means of additive manufacturing (3D printing), which will allow it to acquire robustness, resistance to chemical corrosion and high pressures, and will also be built with materials suitable for food consumption. It will also have an electric valve system that can be operated remotely by means of an automaton to optimise its operation.
