- Understanding the relationships between table salt (NaCl), electricity, softened water, hydrogen and the bleach product
- Economic considerations versus bulk hypochlorite and OSHG
- Equipment Components and Technical Design
- Previous generations of OSHG equipment versus current generation
- Role of equipment components
- Process flow diagram walk-through
- Engineering design considerations and lessons learned
- Case Studies:
- San Diego, CA 30MGD conversion from bulk bleach to OSHG
- Nashville, TN 180MGD conversion from gas chlorine to OSHG
- Other cases studies include multiple well sites and distribution system residual control

Speaker: Gunnar Thordarson, Executive Vice President & Founder, PSI Water Technologies, Inc.
Gunnar Thordarson co-founded Chemical Services Company in 1988 to provide alternative disinfection technology as a response to a toxic gas ordinance being adopted in California communities. He was also the co-founder and President of ClorTec and built the company from a small operation to a dominant On-site Sodium Hypochlorite generator manufacturer. In 1999, he and his partner, Brent Simmons, sold ClorTec to Severn Trent Services. Gunnar took over as Vice-President of the Water Purification Division of Severn Trent Services.
In 2003 Gunnar co-founded Process Solutions Inc. (now PSI Water Technologies), a technology company providing disinfection solutions. PSI Water Technologies developed the patented Microclor® On-site Sodium Hypochlorite Generation System, as well as the Tank Shark® reservoir mixing system. Gunnar attended the University of California, Davis and has a degree in Economics.
