Industry challenge: reliable dosing and minimum space requirements
Camden Waste Water Treatment Plant decided to improve its operations by replacing gas chlorine with liquid sodium hypochlorite as the disinfection and capton as the de-chlorination method. The change included construction of a new building that included new tanks and chemical feed equipment. New installation meant space savings was a requirement to fit all the equipment into one building.
Close cooperation for best solutions
Flowrox aims to meet every customer’s needs and offer expert advice every step of the way. Already in the design stages, the consulting engineer worked alongside the Flowrox representative to ensure selection of the most advantageous Flowrox metering pumps. Considering all customer’s requirements, Flowrox representative recommended two Flowrox Duplex 36” Wall Mount Packaged Pumping SystemsTM.
Minimal space requirements, maximum safety and reliability
Flowrox Packaged Pumping SystemsTM proved to be the best choice. Wall mount packaged systems kept the space requirements minimal while providing optimal pipeline alignment. Regardless of compact design, it ensures improved safety with integrated spill containment basin built in to the packaged system. Furthermore, the Duplex 36” Wall Mount Packaged Pumping SystemsTM proved to execute more reliable dosing operation than the previous selected solutions. Peristaltic pumps also offer the customer more availability than diaphragm pumps due to the ability to pump through air or off-gassing as well as scaling that is present in sodium hypochlorite pumping.
After successfully delivering and installing the pumping systems, the customer recommended that the engineer specify the Flowrox Packaged Pumping SystemsTM for the second site that has been delivered and commissioned.
