Chemical Metering Pump Applications
Chemical metering pumps are found in various types of industrial facilities, from wastewater treatment plants to greenhouses. These pumps are tasked with dosing chemicals, acids, bases, and water at high levels and with repeatable accuracy.
Automatic and electrically powered chemical metering pumps deliver constant, repeatable dosing by moving substances through expanding and contracting chambers. This gentle motion moves liquids and slurries efficiently without damage, making the pumps ideal for shear sensitive substances.
Before choosing a pump, always make sure you review the model specifications thoroughly. For example, some chemical metering pumps cannot handle slurries. Others might not meet your flow requirements. Whatever the application, you should always consider these factors go into selecting a metering pump for your chemical or fluid dosing application:
- Discharge pressure
- Flow rate
- Fluid viscosity range
- Corrosion resistance
- Operating temperature range
Industrial Metering Pumps for Municipal Wastewater TreatmentProper disinfection is critical in wastewater applications. Every stage of the treatment process, from removing organic materials to killing harmful bacteria and supporting appropriate pH levels, requires precise chemical dosing.
Industrial metering pumps handle different chemicals and viscosities while delivering precise, repeatable dosing. A rugged design that withstands harsh environments and won’t corrode due to prolonged exposure to chemicals. Both municipal and privatized wastewater treatment facilities rely on chemical metering pumps for applications including:
- Adjusting pH
- Dewatering equipment
Commercial Metering Pumps for Greenhouses and Hydroponics ApplicationsGreenhouses and hydroponic growing facilities rely on metering pumps to dose water, fertilizer, and nutrients through their injecting and dispensing systems. Precise flow is essential for irrigation and to ensure roots receive the proper amount of nutrients for growth.
The automation features of chemical metering pumps make it easy to manage large growing operations by scheduling watering and feeding. Monitor your pumping system on-site or remotely using compatible software. Use chemical metering pumps to dose a range of fluids, including:
- Nutrients for hydroponic growing
