Accurately metering of Liquid Sodium Hypochlorite presents a unique challenge because of the fluid’s tendency to out-gas.
Fluid Metering will be exhibiting the Chloritrol at the ACE/AWWA Show in June. They will be in Booth #947.
The Chloritrol™ System is a unique valveless duplex pump design. The primary pump injects liquid hypochlorite directly into the water main. The secondary pump removes out-gas bubbles from the system preventing loss of prime. The Chloritrol™ will self prime against pressures up to 125 psi. Internal components are made of sapphire-hard ceramics which provide long term drift-free accuracy.
Flow rate is controlled by FMI’s Model V300 Variable Flow Controller, which accepts 4-20 mA, 0-5 VDC, and 0-10 VDC, signals from process sensors and instrumentation. Flow rate can be manually controlled as well using convenient from panel membrane switches and LED readout.
The Chloritrol™ has been field tested in very demanding applications, and demonstrated that it exceeds performance expectations. It is also noted that the size of the system, as well as energy consumption, is a fraction of that of conventional injection pumps.
In addition to sanitizing of drinking water, the Chloritrol is an excellent choice for accurate Sodium Hypochlorite addition for municipal swimming pools, water parks, resorts, food processing plants, and waste treatment applications.
