Technology | Process

Chemical dosing requires a complete system consisting of storage tank sensors and dosing stations. Dosing stations ,their switches and control systems are housed in protective cabinets. The housing materials are carefully selected according to the chemicals used.

The pulsation damper is positioned downstream of each pump and ensures that there are no pressure peaks or low-pulsation flow. Overflow valves protect the pumps, which theoretically can build-up very high pressure. Pressure maintaining valves ensure a constant pressure within the dosing system.

The quantity of chemicals to be dosed can be measured using an optional MID or oval-gear meter. The control pumping system is activated by a means of a measuring device within the tank and ensures optimum addition of dosing chemicals depending on the wastewater level. The requirements for integration in a process
control system are fulfilled.

Chemicals used

  • Acidic dosed chemicals such as: Iron chloride, iron chloride sulphate, aluminium sulphate, polyaluminium chloride (PAC), iron (II) sulphate, ammonium sulphate, phosphoric acid, hydrochloric acid, etc.
  • Alkali dosed chemicals such as: Sodium aluminate, sodium hydroxide, lime water (CaCO3), magnesium hydroxide, sodium hypochlorite
  • Urea
  • Anionic and cationic polymers
