Polymer Dosing Process Description

The Or-Tec BLEND Polymer Dosing System is used extensively in the water and waste water treatment industry for the activation, blending and dosing of emulsion polymer as a solution.

Polymers are by their very nature difficult to handle. With the Or-Tec BLEND these difficulties are minimized. To begin operation, the operator need only fit the metering pump suction hose and place it in the polymer container.

The unit is designed to deliver a precise rate of polymer to the activation zone. There are no moving parts in the wet phase. This eliminates the need for troublesome operator maintenance and unnecessary, costly down time.

The Or-Tec BLEND is designed for the activation, blending and dosing of polymer as a solution without any mechanical mixing.

Incoming dilution water is regulated by a flow control meter and is then passed through an injection block. Polymer is drawn from its container and injected through the injection block by a metering pump.

High water velocities through the injection block instantly activate the emulsion polymer. From there, the solution flows to a retention vessel for further mixing and activation.

The retention vessel has a unique vortex system at its inlet. This vortex system uses the hydraulic energy of the polymer/water solution to actively mix and further activate the solution. The retention vessel also allows the polymer solution to age.

The activated / blended solution is now ready for use.
