Chemical Feed Systems

Wastewater treatment is an important part of protecting our ecosystem. We all share a finite supply of water, so making sure it is reusable is vital for future generations. Chemicals have been used for decades to treat waste and wastewater. Different chemical processes are used to remove solids, disinfect, deodorize, and restore pH and nutrient balance to the water. However, it is crucial to use these chemicals accurately.

Quality Chemical Control

Improper chemical usage can result in inconsistent product quality and failure to meet specifications. Operating costs will likely be high due to excessive chemical consumption. High corrosion rates can also cause severe damage to equipment. Aside from the cost of repairing or replacing equipment, this can also increase labor and maintenance costs.

Chemical Feed Systems Offered by M.W. Watermark

Chemical feed systems are the best method to deliver precise amounts of chemicals. Different metering systems are used depending on the state of the chemical, which may be gas, liquid, or solid. Gasses are fed through either a direct or solution feed. Direct feeds have limited applications as they provide less security against a gas leak. Solution feeds turn the gas into a liquid in a vacuum before adding the chemicals.

The most common liquid feed is a positive displacement diaphragm, which delivers a flow at a constant rate. For dry chemicals, we use gravity feeders and jet pumps. The dry chemicals are fed through volumetric and gravimetric feeders. Volumetric feeders send the material through in bulk based on its volume, whereas gravity feeders adjust the flow based on the weight and provide more accuracy.

Chemical metering applications include:

  • Condensate / Feedwater Treatment
  • Boiler Water Treatment
  • Chlorination / Dechlorination
  • Membrane Clean in Place
  • Coagulant / Flocculant Feed
