Pressurized chlorine gas leaks can be minimized with consideration and incorporation of one or both of the following system designs.
The first option to consider is to directly mount the vacuum regulators to your chlorine or SO2 containers. If you have multiple containers then you would need to mount a vacuum regulator to each container. By using a chlorine vacuum manifold in lieu of a pressurized manifold you limit your exposure to liability. The regulators require a vacuum to open the inlet valve to feed gas. No vacuum, no gas.

- Another option to consider for enhancing the safety of your equipment is a chlorine container shut off valve system. These Chlorine Emergency Shut Off Valves can be provided so one can open or close the actuators locally and/or remotely. They come standard with a manual override panic button on the control panel. This allows you to shut the valves in event of a gas detection failure. Global Treat, Inc. has a variety of these actuators complete with an optional chlorine gas detector to meet your system requirements.
