Pulsafeeder products are ideal for use in water conditioning systems.
Our fluid metering, and control technologies can be found in a variety of markets and applications: from chlorine injection in a home water conditioning system or even balancing pH and ORP in swimming pools.
Auto Degassing Metering Pumps
Chemical feed pumps have many names. Whether they are called chlorinators, feeders, injectors or positive displacement pumps, all chemical feed pumps require proper installation. In addition, in the case of injecting chlorine into potable water – a way to vent the air trapped in the pump head. Pumps come in a variety of physical capacities, sizes and electrical voltages.
The purpose of a chemical feed pump is to inject a predetermined amount of chemical into the water stream to aid in correcting objectionable conditions. The most common conditions requiring such treatment are dissolved iron, hydrogen sulfide, low pH and sanitizing. All of these objectionable conditions can be eliminated or reduced by introducing corrective chemical solutions with a feed pump. The most common application is injecting bleach into well water to sanitize for human consumption.
Disinfection reduces pathogenic organisms in the water to levels designated as safe by public health standards. Chlorine readily combines with chemicals dissolved in water, microorganisms, small animals, plant material, tastes, colors and odors. The components in the well water “use up” chlorine and comprise the chlorine demand of the treatment system. It is important to add sufficient chlorine to the water to meet the chlorine demand and provide residual disinfection.
Chlorine, when stored in a chemical feed tank – decomposes and causes gas to enter into the pump head when the pump is initiated. If there isn’t a way for the air to vent – the feeder will “lock up” or in common terms, lose prime. Pulsafeeder manufactures a positive displacement chemical metering pump with an auto degassing wet end head. The Series C with the degas option offers the convenience of keeping prime with its three-port feature: suction, discharge and air vent. The Series C key features include:
- Agency approvals for demanding OUTDOOR and indoor applications
- Water Resistant – Excellent for OUTDOOR and indoor applications
- Internally Dampened to Reduce Noise – Acceptable for household installations
- Guided Ball Check Valve System – Reduce Backflow and Enhance Priming
- Few Moving Parts and Wall Mountable
- Safe and Easy Priming – Durable Leak Free Bleed Valve Assembly (standard)
