Typical application in Water Treatment
Dosing additives to prevent lead or copper precipitation
Public water systems commonly add phosphates to the drinking water as a corrosion inhibitor to prevent the leaching of lead and copper from pipes and fixtures. Inorganic phosphates (e.g. phosphoric acid, zinc phosphate, and sodium phosphate) are added to the water to create orthophosphate, which forms a protective coating of insoluble mineral scale on the inside of service lines and household plumbing. The coating serves as a liner that keeps corrosion elements in water from dissolving some of the metal in the drinking water. As a result, lead and copper levels in the water will remain low and within the norms to protect the public health.
Bronkhorst Flow Solutions
Bronkhorst® specializes in low flow Mass Flow Meters and Controllers for liquids and gases. Our Coriolis principle based instruments are designed to accurately measure and control flow ranges from 0.1 g/h up to 600 kg/h. They are suitable for numerous applications, also in the field of water treatment. Combined with a (gear) pump or (shut-off) valve, compact liquid mass flow dosing modules can be offered as an alternative to manually adjusted volumetric metering pumps. Watch our video to learn more about the working principle.
