What parameters need to be monitored for chloramination?
Parameters to monitor for chloramination
The key to chloramination is to control the ratio of chlorine to ammonia nitrogen to favor formation of monochloramine and prevent formation of dichloramine and trichloramine. Successful chloramination requires monitoring of free and total chlorine, free and total ammonia, monochloramine, and pH. Nitrification is a common issue during chloramination. Monitoring for nitrification should include nitrate, nitrite, alkalinity, and dissolved oxygen
