In a dosing system, there are a number of components that are needed to complete the panel but one of the most important aside from the controllers is the pumps. It is always best to get a high good quality pump in order to ensure that proper dosing of the chemical needed for treatment is happening.
Normally when one thinks of pumps they think of the bigger pumps with higher capacity, rating, and flowrate but a dosing pump in comparison is a small, positive displacement pump. It is made to supply a very precise flow rate of a chemical or substance into either a water, steam, or gas flow depending on the requirement. Aside from water treatment, dosing pumps are used in a variety of applications from agriculture, industry, manufacturing to medicine.
Dosing pumps come in different capacities mainly for the flowrate and pressure as well as the material of the dosing pump. Based on the chemical to be dosed and how much chemical is required, the rating and material of the solenoid pump can be chosen. These solenoid dosing pumps can be automatic or manual based on the requirement as well and can be connected to a controller or be on timer-based dosing.
