Injection systems can be used to inject chlorine or dye into systems as needed. Injection point must be at a higher piping elevation than the injection pump. System flow rates and pressure must be known when
specifying an injection system. System includes pump, flow switch, and solution tank. Chlorine and dye are not provided by RMS.
Applications that require high flow rates and/or high pressure, a “Day Tank System” is recommended. A transfer pump will pump water from the primary cistern through the filtration skid, for storage in a smaller Day Tank. A booster pump can then draw water from the Day Tank and sends the treated water to the end use.
*Note: Filtration skids should not be placed on the suction side of the booster pumps.
Pressure tanks are used to allow constant pressure in the water line. In turn, this prolongs the life of the pump by only being on when needed, not constantly.
Pressure Tanks are sized by 3x the output flow rate if no variable frequency drive (VFD) is used. If a VFD is included in the system, the pressure tank must be at a minimum of 20% of the output flow rate.
