How does a chlorine dosing system work?
A dosing pump draws a measured amount of liquid into its chamber and injects the chemical into a tank or pipe that contains the fluid that is being dosed. It’s powered by an electric motor or an air actuator and has a controller that turns the pump on and off and manages the flow rate.
What is the purpose of dosing pump?
Dosing pumps are oscillating positive displacement pumps designed to add a variety of media to a process at a highly accurate flow rate. The pump type is used for a wide variety of applications and industries, from wastewater treatment to food processing.
What is automatic dosing system?
The Automatic Dosing System (ADS) is an electronically-operated dispenser that accurately and consistently applies your choice of specially-formulated water treatments to your water feature. The automatic dosing process eliminates the guesswork and routine associated with adding water treatments manually.
What is chemical dosing pump?
Chemical dosing pumps are compact, positive displacement pumps that are designed to pump an extremely accurate flow rate of chemicals or other substances into a water or gas stream.
How much chlorine is used in water treatment?
The typical amount of chlorine gas required for water treatment is 1-16 mg/L of water. Different amounts of chlorine gas are used depending on the quality of water that needs to be treated.
How do I choose a dosing pump?
With that in mind, a metering pump should be sized so that the maximum expected flow rate is 85% to 90% of the pump’s capacity, which will leave room for additional capacity, if needed. The minimum capacity should never be less than 10% of the pump capacity to maintain accuracy.
What is an auto dosing washing machine?
The machine selects the amount of detergent to use by weight of the laundry in the drum, so you can be sure you get a perfect wash every time. The Auto Dosing system can store enough liquid for up to 20 washes. It’s simple to use and will save you time, as well as detergent with each and every wash.
What is a septic dosing tank?
Pump tanks (or dosing tanks) are an integral part of any pumped septic system such as a mound system or flood dose system. It is a tank (built like a septic tank) that contains one or more effluent or sewage pumps and controls.
Which pump is used for dosing?
The most common technologies include reciprocating pumps, peristaltic pumps, diaphragm pumps, and gear pumps. However, other technologies can also be used for dosing, including rotary piston pumps, progressive cavity pumps, screw pumps, and a few more.
Where should a dosing pump be placed?
Ideally the dosing pump should be mounted above the sump and dosing reservoir in an area that is not prone to splashing or spills. The dosing pump can be mounted vertically or horizontally. When affixing the tubing, take care that the tubing is inserted all the way over the connector until it can go no further.
