WaterSolve’s Chemical Control & Tracking System

          CCTS Trailer

This system has been designed and built to efficiently feed chemicals for dewatering applications.  This system optimizes the application of chemical by automatically adjusting the feed rates based on variations in slurry line flow rate and in-line solids concentration.  Our system also provides documentation and tracking of several applicable parameters.

Specifications listed below are for the base unit.  We routinely customize the system to meet project specific requirements.

Running the system

Series Rpx Ratio Controller:

The control system shall be designed to precisely control dilution water flow in proportion to polymer flow (polymer master) based on an operator input of desired solution concentration. The controller shall have two (2) modes of operation:

Manual Mode:  Operator sets pump rate and water rate manually by increase and decrease push buttons on controller face.

Proportional Auto Mode:  Operator sets desired solution concentration.  (2) Input signals (4-20mA) are taken in from a solids analyzer and a flow meter, and are fed into a tuned loop. The Polymer Metering pump follows 4-20mA pump pacing input signal. Water rate is controlled to maintained desired solution concentration.

Additionally, a 4-20mA output is available to control a second chemical pump. This pump will include a control loop with input variables as described for the polymer pump above.
