FeCL3 Dosing System

Purpose: The purpose of a FeCl3 dosing system is to optimize the performance of water treatment processes by ensuring the controlled and efficient dosing of ferric chloride, leading to improved water quality and compliance with treatment objectives.

Overview: A FeCl3 (ferric chloride) dosing system is a system designed for the controlled dosing or injection of ferric chloride into water treatment processes. Ferric chloride is a chemical compound commonly used in water and wastewater treatment for various purposes, including coagulation, flocculation, and phosphorus removal.




The FeCl3 dosing system typically includes the following components:

Storage Tank: A tank where the ferric chloride solution is stored. The solution is usually prepared by diluting concentrated ferric chloride with water.

Agitator: A agitator is used to prepare the solution prior to dosing the Fecl3 solution.

Dosing Pump: A pump that precisely injects or doses the required amount of ferric chloride into the water stream. The dosing pump helps in maintaining a consistent and controlled dosage for effective treatment.

Control System: A control unit that manages the dosing rate based on water flow, quality, or other parameters. It ensures that the correct amount of ferric chloride is added to achieve the desired water treatment objectives.

Ferric chloride is often used as a coagulant in the treatment of wastewater and drinking water. It helps destabilize particles, such as suspended solids and colloids, facilitating their aggregation and removal through sedimentation or filtration. Additionally, ferric chloride is used for phosphorus removal in wastewater treatment processes.
