The Ministry of Water & Electricity in Jordan was in the process of designing and building one of the largest water desalination plants and transmission systems in the country. A packaged gas chlorination system was to be installed at pump station #5 to disinfect the water for drinking. The goal was to design a chlorination system to meet the needs of a high-volume water flow while providing a consistent level of chlorine in the municipal water supply.
The Maracaibo City water plant in Venezuela, South America was building a new water treatment facility to meet increased demand for drinking water. The new plant would utilize sodium hypochlorite (chlorine) as the primary disinfectant. Due to the need for increased capacity, the plant was being designed to use chlorine stored in larger ton containers that offer greater capacity, but are extremely heavy and difficult to handle.
The Alexandria Water General Authority in Alexandria, Egypt wanted to upgrade and rehabilitate seven (7) water treatment plants serving the city of Alexandria and nearby districts. Weighing accuracy was a major concern as the current system relied on crane hung balances to weigh ton chlorine containers resulting in inaccurate dosing of chlorine and varying disinfection levels throughout the the water supply.
Scaletron has redesigned its Model 3000LB™ Ton Cylinder Lifting Bar. Not only is the lifting bar now stronger than the original model, it's also lighter making it easier to handle and less costly to ship.
A major brand oil refinery located near the Caribbean Sea required scales for weighing ton cylinders of liquefied chlorine. The oil refinery conducted an extensive product review which concluded with the ordering of six Scaletron Model 3001 Ton Cylinder Scales and two Model 1099 Chemical Process Controllers.
