Top Tips for… chemical dosing Chemical dosing is a critical element of water and wastewater treatment. To maintain quality, manage costs and ensure regulatory compliance, plant operators depend on dosing equipment that matches their process needs, as well as being effective and reliable. While most users choose to invest in their own dosing equipment, there are a number of circumstances where hiring could prove more expedient or cost-effective The Knowledge 1 Where range is concerned, size is important While the short, medium or long-term hire of dosing equipment can be the optimum solution for many applications, the benefits of hire will only be realised if the chosen provider has the appropriate equipment, expertise and support infrastructure in place, and if they can bring those elements together into an offering that meets fully the end-user's requirements. Site- and process- specific chemical storage and dosing requirements can vary by several orders of magnitude, so your provider must have dosing system solutions to meet the full range of applications. This might be anything from compact, integrated systems that can be carried to site, to high-capacity, containerised systems that can be filled by drum, IBC or tanker. These systems must be designed to integrate seamlessly into your existing operating procedures and supply chain. 2 Ensure the equipment is up to the job Equipment intended for hire applications must be suitable for a wide spectrum of potential customer requirements and ensure compliance with environmental and safety standards. This kind of versatility and compliance needs to be engineered-in from the start. Check the quality of the hire fleet – does it include high specification pumps, valves and pipework that are fully compatible with the majority of chemical products used by industry? Does the hire equipment feature easy-to-use integrated control systems that allow timings and dosage parameters 7 TOP TIPS www.wwtonline.co.uk | WWT | FEBRUARY 2018 | 27 Kevin Wheeler Managing Director WES Group
