The Leader in Corrosion Resistant Scales for Municipal Water Treatment Applications
Scaletron is the leader in corrosion resistant technology for scales used in harsh environments. We manufacture a complete line of scales and accessories designed for weighing and monitoring the usage, feed rate and inventory of corrosive chemicals and/or materials.
From rural well heads and private water plants to large-scale metropolitan water utilities, weighing technology from Scaletron ensures that the proper levels of chemicals are injected into the system to provide a safe source of water supply for their customers.
The water treatment process uses a variety of chemicals in order to render both surface and ground water potable and palatable. Chemicals are used to destroy harmful organisms, remove color and ammonia compounds, eliminate hydrogen sulfide, oxidize iron and manganese to insoluble forms, and reduce undesirable taste and odors. During these processes monitoring chemical feed rates via weight is vital to maintaining the water quality.
Meeting the Weighing Needs of the Municipal Water Treatment Industry
We meet the needs of municipal water treatment facilities by providing reliable, accurate and safe methods to weigh chemicals used to treat and clarify water for safe human consumption.
Chemicals used during this process are typically stored in a 150 lb. cylinder or ton cylinder as a liquefied gas or in a day tank as a liquid. Monitoring the feed rates via weight is vital to maintaining the water quality. If a cylinder is not replaced or refilled before it is depleted, the proper amount of purifying chemicals will not be added to the water, potentially posing serious health issues.
Chemicals that need to be weighed are highly corrosive if used in the wrong amounts and toxic, requiring safe handling. Typical chemicals include:
- Caustic soda
- Sodium hypochlorite
Scaletron’s scales can be found in many private and municipal water applications including:
- Bacteria and coliform removal
- Chemical removal
- Metals removal
- pH ajdustment
Whether the application requires a standard or custom weighing system, Scaletron’s engineers will help find the right solution to best meet your weighing needs.
