The municipal water districts located in Mars Hill and Hampden, Maine wanted to upgrade the older hydraulic scales being used in their water treatment processes. Both districts found that the scales were plagued by inaccurate readings and frequent maintenance, and were easily corroded by the caustic chemicals being used.
The Cambridge, Ohio Water Treatment Plant wanted to upgrade its aging screw feed system for the dispensing of powdered activated carbon into the municipal water system. The plant used the carbon to control algae blooms, oil and other industrial wastes in the water supply.
Scaletron Industries has introduced a new volumetric feeder. The new VMF-28 Feeder with Carbon Package (Model VMF-28/CP) is a precision “Loss in Weight” measurement system designed specifically to provide accuracy in adding activated carbon in water treatment operations. The new unit features an integrated scale for accurate feeding plus a bag loading box that simplifies the addition of carbon to the system, and also enhances employee safety by containing carbon dust.
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 introduced a new spill containment scale offering high end functionality at a cost-effective price. The new Model 4042 ECO spill containment scale meets a broad range of governmental, industrial and municipal applications, and complies with secondary spill containment requirements as specified by EPA, OSHA and other regulatory agencies.
Scaletron has announced the addition of the Model 2305™ Digital Single Cylinder Eco-Scale designed to provide a lower cost and more versatile solution for weighing chemicals used in water and wastewater treatment applications. The Model 2305™ can weigh cylinders up to 10.5 inches in diameter and 150 pound capacity.
Scaletron Industries. Ltd. continues its position as the "World Leader in Water Treatment Chemical Scales™" with its NEW Patented Model 4042™ Spill Containment Scale and Model 4042WB™ Secondary Spill Containment Scale™ for weighing chemicals in: Tanks, Drums, Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC's) and Tote Bins.
These new Scaletron scales weigh only the chemical dispensed into the water treatment system. If there is a chemical spill the weight is still on the scale and doesn't read as though it has been dispensed into the system.
