Bleach is obtained by diluting industrial solutions of sodium hypochlorite.

Sodium hypochlorite solutions are made by bubbling chlorine (gas) in caustic soda generally diluted to 20%.

The chlorine and soda used are obtained by electrolysis of salt.

SAFI offers valves adapted to skids used in the production of bleach from seawater. SAFI valves are highly appreciated for their limited weight, their great mechanical resistance, and their capacity to resist the chemical attack caused by chlorine, caustic soda and bleach.
