CHLOREX™ technology employs the FIBER FILM® Contactor as the mass transfer device and utilizes alkaline water as the treating reagent to remove inorganic chloride compounds from liquid and gas reformer product streams.

CHLOREX™ technology was first licensed in 1991 and to date Merichem has granted 4 unit operating licenses world-wide. The non-dispersive FIBER FILM® Contactor achieves reduced capital expenditure and less plant space requirements compared to most treating alternatives, making CHLOREX™ the technology-of-choice. In addition, CHLOREX™ designs produce a more readily handled effluent stream compared to the waste material generated by sacrificial solid adsorbent beds.
