General Information on CL2 – Chlorine
Chlorine (CL2) is a chemical element. Together with fluorine, bromine, iodine, astatine and tennessine it belongs to the group of halogens. Elemental chlorine is present in gaseous form under normal conditions in the form of the diatomic molecule Cl2. It is one of the most reactive elements and reacts with almost all other elements and many compounds. The high reactivity also causes the toxicity of elemental chlorine.
Chlorine, obtained almost exclusively by electrolysis, is used for the synthesis of chlorine-containing compounds such as vinyl chloride, a starting product for the production of the plastic PVC.
Gas Sensors for the Detection of CL2
RITTER »MultiGas« Combined Modules NDIR + NDUV
RITTER »MultiGas« Modules can also be a combination of both NDIR sensors and NDUV sensors on a common board. With this unit, up to 3 gas components can be measured simultaneously. The basic electronics can supply IR and UV radiation sources with different frequencies for 0 Hz (DC) to 100 Hz (AC). This system is an ideal tool for detecting multi-component gas at low ppm levels.
Please note: For technical and chemical reasons, not every combination of gases/measuring ranges can be analyzed/measured in a single or combined RITTER »MultiGas« module. As this is a rather complex topic, please do not hesitate to contact one of our gas experts first.
