Zodiac Group Australia Chlorinator

The opportunity

Zodiac Group Australia initiated a challenging project with
the objective of redesigning their saltwater chlorinator to
reduce manufacturing costs and increase reliability. Product
efficiency had to be maintained or improved and at the same
time significant cost reductions had to be achieved for the
project to be viable and internationally successful.

The solution
Optimising the power transformer design was a critical
consideration in order to meet challenging cost reduction
targets. Torema worked closely with the R&D team at
Zodiac and invested significant time to gain an intimate
understanding of the project objectives and trade-offs.
Detailed modelling was performed to optimise the
transformer design, cost, heat transfer techniques, mounting
systems, material selection, temperature management and
control options. The final solution comprised an innovative
combination of proven and reliable technologies and
construction methods designed to integrate perfectly with
the control system. The solution was successfully tested
and implemented to deliver the required cost, performance
and reliability benefits. In the transition to mass production, Torema's established offshore production facilities enabled
efficient supply chains to be implemented and a scalable
response to Zodiac's global requirements.
“During the new product
development phase,
Torema proved invaluable
with their technical
support and rapid
prototyping services.
Thedesign challenge to
develop atransformer that
had greaterthan 90% power
conversion efficiency was
undertaken and delivered successfully, resulting
in an order placed
and a new platform
defined for future
product development. I
can recommend Torema as
an innovative,
trustworthy and
supportive design
partner giving final component prices far
better than prior long
established Chinese
vendors and can't wait
to engage them on the next
project. “
