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.
Scaletron’s Model VMF-28™ Volumetric Screw Feeders offer many advantages that our competitors can’t match. Watch our new video to learn the unique advantages of Scaletron’s volumetric feeders including:
The Monona Water Utility in the city of Monona, Wisconsin was looking for a better way to monitor its rural well sites.

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.
