Reading the IntelliChem documentation I see that that there is a need of a pressure difference between the input and output of the flow-cell, which is understandable of course. In the plumbing drawing it is advised to connect the input hose to the pipe between the pump and heater and the output hose after the heater. This allows for sufficient pressure difference apparently.
I do not have/need a heater or solar, but only will have an IntelliChlor in the main pipe. Now the question is whether the IntelliChlor will create sufficient pressure difference for the flow-cell of the IntelliChem to work well. What I know is that the IntelliChlor only has some plates parallel to the flow direction, so I expect not a lot of flow resistance from the IntelliChlor.
Or should I put a reducer (and inverse reducer) in the pipe to create some resistance, or even I am thinking of a bypass pipe with reduced size, say 1 or 3/4 inch compared to the main pipe of 2 inch, to connect the output hose of the IntelliChem. The input hose will be connected to the 2 inch pipe before the bypass. Or a combination of the two options.
Any comments or suggestions?
