Wastewater treatment dosing system

A fish farm in Scotland required a dosing solution. The fish farm contained a large tank of salmon. As the fish excrete, the water requires filtering to maintain a level of purity for their health and the end quality of the product.

The water is channelled from the tank and filtered to remove solid matter, however the water is left with higher levels of acidity. The water was dosed with lime chemical and returned to the tank.

The fish farm approached Verder for a dosing solution. Verder recommended a Dura packaged dosing system.

The system was recommended as it provided a dosing solution for a smaller flow rate with a built-in monitoring probe, analyser pump, inverter and electrical distribution. This was perfect for the fish farm’s requirements. The system comes complete with a mixer unit which can be mounted on to any standard IBC.

The dosing system is designed to handle abrasive lime chemical thanks to the peristaltic pump principle.

The unit has been operating successfully for several months providing pH correction ensuring the water quality remains stable and suitable for the fish.
