When dealing with low dose rates of Sodium Hypochlorite, it is beneficial to dilute the concentrated solution prior to dosing. This helps the product to maintain a longer shelf life and reduces the chance of gasing off while also allowing for increased accuracy of dose rates. Additionally, there are Health and Safety advantages in handling a diluted chemical.
The FILTEC Sodium Hypochlorite Dilution Unit is a manual make-up system which allows the operator to dilute the concenrated liquid hypochlorite down to the desired % dilution ready for dosing.
It has a twin compartment tank where the concentrated liquid is poured in by the operator into the top tank, then simply opens the valve to dispense a pre-set amount of neat hypochlorite into the lower dilution tank. A site glass with pre-marked volume levels indicates how much neat liquid has been dispensed.
The operator then simply adds water by hose into the lower dilution tank up to a pre-determined level resulting in the correct v/v mixture at the desired dilution factor.
- reduces the amount of chemical required
- modular design for easy transportation for emergency applications
- self-contained skid
- easy to operate
- diluted liquid hypochlorite reduces gassing off
Filtration Technology also offer a range of Dosing Pumps to complement the Sodium Hypochlorite Makeup Units, as well as a chlorine analyser to manage process requirements – either with monitoring or control capabilities.
