feeding chemicals such Fluoride, Polymer and Sodium Hypochlorite,
it is imperative to have a way to accurately track chemical usages
and feed rates. In fact many government
regulations require you to document chemical usages and there
is no more accurate method than using a weight-based chemical monitoring
to intrusive tank level technologies, using a scale is inherently
more accurate because a scale operates independent of vessel shape,
temperature, corrosive fumes and specific gravity of the chemical.
Even more importantly for the operator, since there is no need to
place a sensor into the tote or chemical as other technologies require,
the chance of operator/chemical contact is greatly reduced. Also,
using a scale does not add any time to the tote change out procedure.
The empty tote is lifted or rolled off the platform, the new one
rolled or forked on, the process plumbing connected and the system
is ready to go.
heavy duty platform scales come standard with the exclusive chemical
resistant Tuf-Coat finish or are offered in optional 316 stainless
steel. An adjustable backstop on the scale platform allows the tote
to be rapidly placed in the same position each time for process
connection alignment and optimum scale accuracy.
