Scaletron is the leader in corrosion resistant technology for scales and volumetric feeders 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. In addition, we offer a complete line of volumetric screw feeders for dry powdered chemicals and other materials. Feeders are available with a gravimetric feed option with a built-in scale and a range of loading options from bag loaders to direct feed from silos.
From plant air conditioning and heating systems to manufacturing processes including steam, chilled water and wastewater, weighing and feeding technology from Scaletron ensures that the proper levels of chemicals are injected into the system to ensure the safe, efficient and economical operation of the equipment.
The industrial water treatment process uses a variety of chemicals to prevent scale and corrosion; metal passivation; foaming; and biological growths. During these processes monitoring chemical feed rates is vital to maintaining continuous operations (reduced downtime), production efficiencies, quality, and profitability.
We meet the needs of industrial facilities and manufacturing plants by providing reliable, accurate and safe methods to weigh and feed chemicals used to treat water used in industrial processes; boilers and cooling systems; and waste treatment systems.
Chemicals used during this process are typically stored in a 150 lb. cylinder or ton cylinder as a liquefied gas, or in a tank, drum or IBC tote 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 chemicals will not be added to the water, potentially resulting in damage to the equipment and downtime. Other water conditioning chemicals are supplied as dry powders and require accurate feed rates to achieve proper dosing.
Many of the chemicals that need to be weighed and/or fed are highly corrosive if used in the wrong amounts and toxic, requiring safe handling. Typical chemicals include:
Scaletron’s scales and feeders can be found in many industrial process water and wastewater treatment applications including:
Whether the application requires a standard or custom system, Scaletron’s engineers will help find the right solution to best meet your needs.
