Fresh water is used in a broad range of process applications including boiler water and cooling system water treatment, as well as food and beverage process water treatment, among others. The resulting wastewater must then be properly treated before discharge into local sewer systems.
Many chemicals are utilized to aid in the remediation of wastewater. These chemicals may be used for the removal of solid particles, for pH adjustment, odor control, disinfection, foam prevention or removal, and sludge removal.
In this article we discuss the function of various types of chemicals used, and why we believe a FLEXFLO® peristaltic dosing pump is the best choice to deliver those chemicals.
