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 small, rural sewage treatment facilities to large-scale metropolitan wastewater plants, weighing and feeding technology from Scaletron ensures that the proper levels of chemicals are injected into the system to meet the required standards for the effluent discharged back into our water ways.
The wastewater treatment process uses a variety of chemicals for disinfection; destruction of hydrogen sulfide; removal of ammonia; oxidation of organics; and control of odors. During these processes monitoring chemical feed rates is vital to maintaining the water quality.
We meet the needs of the water and wastewater treatment facilities by providing reliable, accurate and safe methods to weigh and feed chemicals used to treat water, control odor and render effluent suitable for discharge.
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 purifying chemicals will not be added to the water, potentially posing serious environmental issues. 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 wastewater and sewage applications including:
