With an expanding market worldwide for advanced polymer dosing systems, the introduction of the Qdos 60 PU peristaltic pump from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions (WMFTS) is a timely addition to the company’s range. It means operators can now deploy efficient, safe, and reliable polymer metering at any water or wastewater treatment plant.
Polymers are used mostly in coagulation and dewatering applications in the sludge treatment process. Dewatering sludge minimizes sludge bulk, which can reduce the cost associated with storage and disposal by up to 75 percent.
There are strong regulatory drivers globally for efficient sludge dewatering. Accurate and reliable metering of polymers in the sludge dewatering process is essential to ensure it is managed properly.
The Qdos 60 PU offers precise and repeatable flows for many hard to handle fluids, including viscous flows and aliphatic hydrocarbons. The pump provides excellent compatibility for complex polymers such as polyacrylamide (PAM) and other flocculants and coagulants used in wastewater treatment.
Customers in the food and beverage industry can also benefit from the Qdos 60 PU pump as it is also compatible with fats, oils, and grease, and is Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Commission (EC) 1935/2004 certified.
