Although they aren’t particularly well known outside of the medical trade, chemical dosing pots are quite familiar to people who perform labor-intensive tasks in the industrial field. They’re very useful for mixing chemicals and they’re very easy to operate. They also save time, since you don’t have to wait for a half hour or more to mix up your next batch of medication. Each tank is connected to a high (1%) valve to make sure that the chemical is delivered the fastest, easiest way, regardless of how low the pressure or flow is. And, of course, each tank is fitted with safety shut-off valves for added protection against accidental leakage.
Today’s modern design combines the efficiency of these types of dosing pots with the convenience of a kitchen sink. You can pour your medicine into the large wide opening pot, which has a separate lid that easily locks in and shuts off the valve. This type of valve is especially useful for those people who perform multiple tasks, as all you need to do is open and close the lid.
One thing to be careful about with chemical dosing pots is working pressure. If you’re using a lower than recommended working pressure, you may risk damaging the pump or the mixing device. A common mistake with working pressure is to use the wrong size nozzle. The 14 bar nozzles usually come in either a 2.5 litre or a 3.5-litre version, although the smaller ones can still handle 14 bars, too. For example, a 2.5 litre pump will only be able to handle a max of 14 bars, so you would have to either buy a new pump, or refill the old one with the incorrect capacity.
There are also several types of safety valve available on the market. These include high pressure relief solenoid valves, high temperature and low water point detectors and temperature and pressure relief relays. Each of these has its own set of benefits, but the biggest benefit of all is that they prevent corrosion. Corroded components can rust, which can weaken the seal between the chemical dosing pump and the piping. This means that your chilled water systems could become more easily contaminated.
The next step up from the low-pressure relief solenoid valves are high-pressure relief solenoids. These are typically used in chemical dosing pots. They have built-in high temperatures to ensure that solenoid valves do not fail and have been specifically designed to operate at these high temperatures. However, high-pressure relief solenoid valves are expensive and require regular maintenance. They are also noisy, and some people find that they make the operation of their chemical plants harder.
If you can afford a metal tank, you should consider using a tundish tank. Tundish tanks are the most popular style of chemical dosing pots because they have the maximum working pressures of all the categories of containers available. Metal tanks have a variety of advantages, such as corrosion resistance and their excellent heat insulation properties. However, they do require frequent maintenance and have limited storage room.
Finally, stainless steel vessels are the standard by which all other containers fall in the food and pharmaceutical category. Food grade stainless steel is the highest quality available and requires no special treatment for use in food manufacturing. A stainless-steel pot or container in this category is an absolutely necessity for use in processing drugs or cleaning up pharmaceuticals. They are often used for holding diluadid antibiotics, anti-bacterial and antifungal creams and ointments. Their durability makes them ideal for carrying medicines and other chemical dosing pots in forklift trucks or off trailers.
Whether you are looking for general purpose, heavy duty, FDA approved, pharmaceutical grade, or food service equipment cooling and holding containers, you should check the Internet for a complete selection of containers. You will find that there is a large choice of sizes, shapes, and color to choose from. For specific product information, and to see photos of different types of chemical dosing pots and stainless-steel vessels, you should contact a supplier. There is a large variety of feed fluid chemicals available, and many suppliers offer free shipping and handle return arrangements on products if you are unsatisfied for any reason.
