Masterflex Pumps, Wastewater Treatment Plants Can Finally Optimize NaOCL Feed

November 22, 2011

A common problem with feeding commercial sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) and other high strength chemical oxidants is outgassing. Outgassing occurs when a pocket of vapor forms in the fuid line, obstructing normal flow. Outgassing often vapor locks chemical metering pumps and can lead to system leaks and result in unscheduled downtime and poor process performance. Learn how to eliminate the potential for vapor lock.
