Scaletron VMF-90E volumetric feeder

The new Scaletron VMF-90E volumetric feeder enables rapid installation of a treatment process dosing system wherever and whenever it is needed.

For automated additive dosing and monitoring with consistent feed rates, the VMF-90E is an automatic, full-featured volumetric feeding system for adding dry polymers to water, wastewater, and chemical processing applications. Mounted on a rugged, 48 x 31.5 in. steel skid, the system is completely portable permitting it to be quickly installed or moved anywhere dosing operations are required. The skid is pre-cut with forklift slots to facilitate pick up and transport.

The VMF-90E feeder system is comprised of a helix screw feeder, vibratory agitator, programmable control module, solution mix tank with mixer, and a number of efficiency-enhancing options. The system accurately dispenses aluminum sulfate (alum), calcium hydroxide (hydrated lime), carbon, magnesium hydroxide, polymers, potassium, soda ash, and other dry powders or pelletized materials used in the water and waste water industries. The system’s portability lets operators deploy additive metering/monitoring at the exact time and location where dosing procedures are needed to improve treatment process flexibility and streamline operations.
