There are a few concerns when dealing with wastewater treatment, including clean water, energy consumption, sludge production, and environmental footprint. Applications ranging from water storage and transmission to wastewater treatment, leak detection and pump management require flow meter technology.
As sewage networks and wastewater treatment plants strive for greater efficiency and cost reduction, it is imperative that they monitor and control operations more precisely.
Chemical Dosing Skids
One of the best solutions to achieve this is chemical dosing skids. These are also called chemical metering or injecting skids. They support pumps, piping, and valves for applications that require metered chemicals, injecting them directly into pipes without losing the effect of water under pressure.
These systems save time and money because they can be prebuilt to reduce setup time and costly in-plant piping runs.
What happens during the dosing process?
During this process, chemical reagents are added into a water stream at a controlled rate with positive displacement metering pumps.
Water treatment uses include disinfection, fluoride treatment, sodium bisulfite metering, sulfuric acid dosing, sodium hypochlorite systems, dispersant polymer dosing, sodium hydroxide feed, potassium permanganate dosing, coagulation & flocculation, hydrochloric acid metering, alum feed, Ph neutralization, and antiscalant addition.
A Wastewater Solution
ChemTec Equipment specializes in the engineering and manufacturing of flow meters, flow monitors, and excess flow valve solutions. The only manufacturer of all-Teflon flow switches and flow meters, our low flow products are composed of raw materials, ensuring a superior product life-cycle.
ChemTec’s flow meters can be effectively used in a municipal water treatment process to verify flow. The ChemTec MAO Series is compact and features a broad range of adjustability. Flow meters or flow monitors are implemented in the system to signal the presence of flow (or lack of flow) before the chemical/gas is fed into the water (or wherever it is designated to go). Skids can control more than one pump/chemical or gas feed line.
