We have a system that generates chlorine from the salt in sea water as a biofouling control in a condenser. We have a problem with hydrogen gas by-product collecting in un-ventable high points in the system, such as inside a plate-and-frame heat exchanger. Is there a chemical that could be injected into the system that could bind to the hydrogen gas to scavenge it, preventing a dangerous build up of hydrogen? Or any other thoughts for how to deal with the issue? Currently, our best guess is to ensure high enough flowrate to prevent gas from collecting, but it's a significant challenge to know what that flowrate would have to be.
Thanks for any suggestions!
