Abstract : Under a project directive for the development of an effective decontamination apparatus producing a hypochiorite slurry from liquid chlorine, dry chemical and water, there has been designed, fabricated, and tested equipment of the following specifications: 1. No power source is required other than that inherert in the supply water. 2. The equipment has a capacity of 25 gpm of hypochlorite slurry at a supply water pressure of 100 psig. The discharge at this operating condition is suitable for direct spraying. 3. A satisfactory effluent is obtained when the water supply pressure is reduced to as low as 50 psig. However, there is a corresponding reduction in capacity of the apparatus and force of the final spray. 4. The physical and functional characteristics of the equipment are such as to allow the use of a variety of dry chemicals as the starting component.
