Chemical Dosing

Chemical dosing pumps in water treatment typically deliver a measured amount of chemical into a stream of water.  The dosing pump will draw the chemical from a bulk tank and then inject it into the water that is being treated.  One way valves restrict any backflow from the water stream and stop loss of chemical back into the dosing tank.  Importantly the rate of dosing can be adjusted with the dosing pump often having 2 settings/ranges to choose from.

Chemical dosing is quite common in pre- and post-water treatment and is seen in the following cases;

  • Reverse osmosis systems
  • Bore irrigation
  • pH adjustment
  • Disinfection
  • Coagulation/Flocculation

In most cases chemical dosing is required as a necessary step of treating the in or outgoing water and a very good example of this is disinfection of water for human consumption.  In other cases, chemical dosing assists in system performance and if not used the life of the system and its performance can be compromised.

One of the important aspects of chemical dosing is to ensure that the dosed amount is appropriate/correct for the purpose it is intended for.  For example, is the chemical under dosing or overdosing.  If under dosing then what impact will that have on your water – will it cause a system failure?  If overdosing then does this mean that you are now drinking that chemical?

VWST are there to help you sort out our dosing needs.
