Below is a link to a spreadsheet developed by HydroFlo Tech.
By inputting the major design criteria, you can solve for total chemical consumption as well as GPM & GPH dosing rates.
The spreadsheet operates on Microsoft Excel 2003, or later.
Below is a sample shot of the spreadsheet.
|Chemical Name =||Acid - Typical|
|Project Name =||XX-XXXX|
|Process GPM =||105|
|Polymer weight/gallon =||10.3||Weight of polymer per gallon to be used|
|Process Polymer % (expressed as decimal) =||1||Polymer concentration to be used in the final process|
|% of Polymer used in the test (expressed as decimal) =||1||Polymer concentration used for the treatability test|
|Treatability test sample size (ml) =||500||Wastewater sample size|
|How many CCs used in the treatability test =||1.75||How many CCs were used to make a successful treatment|
|Yield of the calculations|
|Polymer consumption GPD (neat)||428.49786|
|Polymer consumption GPH (neat)||17.85408|
|Polymer consumption GPM (neat)||0.29757|
|Polymer consumption Ounces/Min (neat)||38.08870|
|PPM of polymer needed to make the process work||3500||24||Process Day (Hrs)|
|RTU polymer/water mixture consumption GPM||0.29757|
|RTU polymer/water mixture consumption GPH||17.85408|
|RTU polymer/water mixture consumption GPD||428.49786|
