Improve Your Property's Sanitation System

Hello, my name is Terry. Welcome to my blog. This blog is about a subject which isn't very popular - sanitation. However, while alot of people don't like to talk about toilet waste, it is a fact of life. I recently moved into a new home by the ocean on the western coast of Australia. It is a lovely property in a fantastic spot. There was one problem which soon made itself known when I arrived. The toilets did not work properly. When waste was flushed down them, it didn't seem to go anywhere. I called in a sanitation expert who inspected the system and gave me plenty of advice. In the end, I installed a new septic tank. I learnt a lot during the process so I decided to start this blog.

4 Accessories You May Need for Your Chemical Metering Pumps

Chemical metering pumps help to automate the process of discharging chemicals into process fluids in accordance with the interests of the user. Several accessories can help those metering pumps to work without any avoidable mishap. This article discusses some of those accessories that you should consider buying for your chemical metering pump.

Diaphragm Valves

Diaphragm valves serve different purposes depending on their point of installation. For example, they can be installed on the calibration column of the chemical metering pump. Such a diaphragm valve will enable the quantity of the chemical in the calibration column to adjust in accordance with the quantity of the chemicals that are left in the tank. You will therefore be able to tell at a glance how much you still have in the chemical tank. Diaphragm valves can also be used for throttling the flow of chemicals through the pump.

Pulsation Dampener

This accessory can be installed on either the suction side of the pump or on the discharge side. The pulsation dampener helps to reduce the size of the piping that is required on the suction side of the chemical metering pump. This is because the dampener reduces the pressure of the chemicals flowing through the piping. The dampener protects the discharge side from any spikes that can occur in the flow of chemicals from the pump. This regulation therefore reduces wear and tear on the piping system.

Anti-Siphon Valves

Piping systems can fail due to several factors, such as a leak. Such failures may cause the chemical tank to discharge all its contents into the defective piping. Excessive amounts of the chemical may therefore end up in your products. An anti-siphon valve can prevent such an eventuality from happening. It prevents the chemical tank from dumping all its contents once the piping fails.


Some chemicals can solidify if they are stored for long, or when they are subjected to temperatures that are outside their ideal range. Contaminants may also get into chemical tanks. Such impurities can damage the pump or clog the piping system. Y-strainers hold those contaminants so that they can be removed from the system during routine maintenance. In this way, pump life will be extended.

The specific accessories that can provide the greatest benefits may depend on the particular application to which a chemical metering pump is put. You should therefore talk to an expert so that he or she can advise you about the most appropriate accessories for your chemical metering pump.
