CHEMICAL DILUTION SYSTEM SAVES MONEY AND INCREASES SAFETY

Merlin Dilution System Enumclaw

Like buying orange juice and detergents, water treatment chemicals are almost always less expensive to purchase in higher concentrations.  Unfortunately, feeding high strength chemicals into process water can create problems for the water treatment operator.  These problems may stem from things like extremely low feed rates, chemical off-gassing, hard process water and safety or regulatory concerns in handling high strength chemicals.  An innovative engineer and a determined Northwestern city set out to solve these problems with a chemical dilution system that met both their budget and design criteria.

 

Chemical Security Legislation update

Below is an update from the Chlorine Chemistry Council regarding the latest on CFATS reauthorization.  CFATS is the chemical security legislation enacted a number of years ago to secure chemical facilties from the possibility of a terrorist attack.  Chlorine gas facilities at Water treatment plants were exempted in the initial temporary law because they were covered by the Bio Terrorism Act of 2002 which required plants to secure their perimeters.  To avoid duplicative regulation, the Chlorine Chemistry Council supports Republicans who are pushing for an extension of the current law that would continue to exempt chlorine gas use at water plants. - Mark Nelson May 10, 2011
