Chemical Dosing Systems and Pumps

An automatic chemical dosing system dispenses the required amount of treatment chemicals to maintain optimal levels in the water,

whether that is in terms of disinfection or pH balance. At Gaffey Technical Services we have a range of chemical dosing

pumps and ancillary equipment for specific applications.

Why is chemical dosing equipment needed?

A chemical dosing system uses a method like electrochlorination, chlorine dioxide dosing or a flocculant dosing system to disinfect water and balance the pH levels if they are detected to be too alkaline or acidic.

The chemical dosing pump attached to the system can gradually release the desired treatment agent into the water, providing ongoing protection against bacteria like Legionella, Cryptosporidium and biofilms. Importantly, this means the levels of flocculant agent or chlorine in the water are kept under control, so the chemical dosing agent itself does not reach concentrations that are irritant to human skin.

Where is this equipment used?

Automatic chemical dosing systems have applications particularly in pools that are intended for bathing by humans, ranging from swimming pools to hydrotherapy pools, and from Olympic-sized pools to small splash pools, Jacuzzis and commercial spa hot tubs.

Using a method like calcium hypochlorite dosing or sodium hypochlorite dosing, even small pools can be safely disinfected without personnel coming into close contact with hazardous chemicals, while chemical dosing systems can also rebalance the pH level of acidic or alkaline water to avoid irritating the skin.

What types of water treatment equipment does Gaffey offer for dosing?
