Chemical Dilution Trough

5Hp MEGA SWEET Chemical Induction Pump

Global Treat, Inc. provides water treatment equipment for diluting acids and other chemicals (Chlorine, Corrosion Inhibitors, and Cooling Tower Dispersants) used in cooling towers!

Over time, acid feed systems will likely cause long term damaging effects to cooling tower basins and equipment if chemicals are not mixed properly. Global Treat, Inc. offers a solution to protect your investment. The gravity flow Chemical Dilution Trough is designed to dilute chemicals before they enter the cooling tower water basin.

Because chemicals are nearly twice as heavy as water, the acid tends to sink to the bottom of the tower basin in cooling towers. Eventually, these aggressive chemicals will attack the concrete, which damages the basin floor and causes the structural support within the basin to begin to erode. This problem can be eliminated by diluting the chemicals with water before they are introduced into the basin.

The Chemical dilution trough mixes re-circulated and make up water to dilute the chemicals. The chemical / water solution then travels across a series of PVC or PCVC baffles before entering the cooling tower basin. Once in the cooling tower, the diluted solution rapidly disperses within the tower basin water.

Acid Eddy Chemical Dilution Trough

Our Chemical Dilution Trough “Acid Eddy” is now available in two different sizes. The MACRO Dilution trough is recommended for higher flow applications of up to 500 GPD maximum (of chemicals). For lower flow applications of 250 GPD maximum (of chemicals) or less, we offer the MICRO dilution trough, which is a “scaled down” version of the larger trough.

Optional Flow Monitoring - In an effort to prevent chemical overdosing, which can potentially damage a cooling tower system, we suggest optional water and acid feed verification monitors to aide in accurately measuring and controlling chemical feed systems. Contact Global Treat, Inc. for pricing and information!
