Product description :
Trichloroisocyanuric acid is the organic compound with the formula (C3Cl3N3O3). It is used as an industrial disinfectant, bleaching agent and a reagent in organic synthesis. This white crystalline powder, which has a strong "chlorine odour," is sometimes sold in tablet or granule form for domestic and industrial use.
Use in water treatment
The compound is a disinfectant, algicide and bactericide mainly for swimming pools and dyestuffs, and is also used as a bleaching agent in the textile industries.
Applications: It is widely used in civil sanitation, pools and spas, preventing and curing diseases in husbandry and fisheries, fruits and vegetables preservation, wastewater treatment, algaecide for recycling water of industry and air conditioning, anti shrink treatment for woolen, treating seeds, bleaching fabrics, and organic synthesis industry
Benefits of TCCA in Swimming Pool-
Available with 90% chlorine concentration
Due to high chlorine content, handling is easy for large pools.
Reduces chlorine loss during day time. TCCA is stable it does not strip like any other halogen compounds.
Reduces algae growth.
Dissolves slowly in water, allowing for continuously metered dosing of available chlorine, especially when in tablet form.
Drawbacks of TCCA in Swimming Pool-
Cyanuric Acid (CYA) build-up from TCCA use can decrease the effectiveness of Free Active Chlorine (FAC) over time.
Such build up can only be reduced by dilution with water that does not contain CYA.
The economics of this effect can greatly reduce the cost-effectiveness of high chlorine availability in TCCA.
At high CYA concentrations, normal chlorine levels can be rendered ineffective, requiring either dilution by draining and refilling the pool or by adding abnormally high doses of chlorine to overcome this effect.
