The cell of a salt chlorinator is the part that actually converts Salt (NaCl) to Chlorine, which consists of a plastic housing and the electrodes. The electrodes usually constructed from the highly corrosion resistant material titanium, and the anode is coated with ruthenium oxide or iridium generally. The composition of this coating plays a major role in both the chlorine producing efficiency of the cell and its life expectancy.

BAOJI HIGHSTAR TITANIUM METAL has engaged in titanium anode manufacturing and research for 12 years, we have developed patented coating to provide extra long life anode. For salt chlorinator cell electrodes, We uses high grade pure solid titanium plate baked with noble metal oxide coating ensure the longevity of the cell providing cleaner and healthier water in your pool or spa for longer time and hassle free electrode cleaning if needed. With widest range of chlorinator cell electrode and the most experienced technical and engineering staff in the anode industry, our team continuously improve the titanium anode quality and cell optimization to improve the salt chlorinator life.

Proper Maintenance for Salt Chlorinators:

To maximize the life of your salt chlorinator, consider the following tips:

Applying with Reverse Polarity electrode, it greatly reduces scale build-up on the cell and extends the life span of the chlorinator.

Maintain a consistent salt level (typically 2700-3900 ppm)

Clean the chlorinator cell at least once a season or as needed

Avoid too frequent cleaning of the chlorinator cell

Turn pool equipment off during lightning storms to avoid damaging power surges

Keep Calcium levels as low as possible and still remain in accordance with guidelines set by pool equipment manufactures.

Selection of coated titanium anodes:

A number of factors affect the selection of the titanium anodes for a salt chlorinator, apart from personal preferences. These are based on the chlorine requirements for a similar chlorinator and will include the following:

1. Sizes of the anode plates – Larger salt chlorinators need larger anode plates;

2. Parallel or series connection;

3. Operating life of the anodes;

4. Salt water concentration;

5. Any request on chlorine rate.
