This video educates drinking water professionals about the use of chloramines as a secondary disinfectant following primary disinfection.
Chloramines produce fewer disinfection by-products (DBPs) than chlorine in water disinfection. Chloramines' advantages include little or no creation of trihalomethanes, simplicity of use, formation of a long-lasting measurable residual, and a proven history of success. Converting Distribution Systems From Chlorine to Chloramines educates drinking water professionals about the use of chloramines as a secondary disinfectant. It also explains the basic issues of disinfection by-product formation, DBP regulations, the advantages and drawbacks of chloramines to reduce DBP formation, and central issues to consider in planning and implementing a chloramination system in your treatment train.
