Blue-White’s® President Explains the Accuracy of the MS-6 Chemical Feed Sensor

The treatment of water and wastewater using chemicals is an exact science. Dosing needs to be accurate to ensure that the right amount of chemical is getting into critical water and wastewater treatment systems quickly. The ProSeries-M MS-6 chemical feed flowmeter from Blue-White Industries is designed to accurately measure that chemical feed from metering and dosing pumps to ensure proper dosing.

This sensor ensures precision accuracy when measuring flow, and its design provides an extremely wide flow range, from 0.158 to 158.5 gph. The sensor provides the operator with an almost immediate indication if there is a problem with metering pump operations. It has a low-pressure drop of less than 1 psi.

“We designed the product in such a way that it enables the user to get a very high turndown ratio,” says Rob Gledhill, president of Blue-White Industries. “That capability is really phenomenal.”

Because the sensor is equipped with wetted parts constructed of PVDF and polyether ether ketone, it will handle harsh and corrosive chemicals associated with water and wastewater treatment. The end fittings are included with the unit and allow for more than 14 inlet and outlet configurations. It has been engineered to require minimal effort to install, including the thoughtfully designed in-line pipe fittings, which provide quick and easy setup. The unit is designed to allow the operator to set the flow rate and total setpoint triggers, with flow-rate readings as low as 10 mL/min.

“The reason this sensor is so accurate is that we are employing the latest ultrasonic technology,” Gledhill says. “We actually had to wait for the technology to get to where it’s currently at to design a sensor to have capabilities and accuracy like this.”

It is equipped with the latest technology and is configurable via Blue-Central desktop software. Blue-Central has easy-to-follow menus to make setup simple. It will automatically update to the latest software version. The operator can view the MS-6 status when it is connected via a USB port on the side of the unit.

The sensor has a configurable isolated 4-20mA output and 0 to 10,000 Hz pulse output. The built-in LED status light allows for quick visual inspection. The MS-6 sensor is NSF 61 certified. Blue-White Industries is ISO 9001:2015.
