Chemical delivery presents challenges due to the caustic nature of certain chemicals. For example, bleach/sodium hypochlorite cannot be delivered using traditional meters from a truck. Special tank monitoring solutions, such as ceramic sensors, are required to mitigate the corrosive effects on electronics and metal.
Bulk Chemicals Delivery
In addition, the delivery scenarios for chemicals differ from those of other bulk products. For instance, bleach is used in everything from swimming pools to public water supplies and paper mills, each with distinct utilization needs. Public water supplies typically require full truckloads of bleach, while paper mills and other plants may not.
In the case of pool supply companies, bleach usage is influenced by seasonality and weather conditions. For example, when it’s hotter outside, more water in the pool evaporates, so they need to use more bleach. Let’s say a customer has three tanks, each with a 1,900 gallon capacity. During the winter, you deliver bleach to fill up two of those tanks, but when spring comes, the customer asks you yo fill the third tank.
Efficient Scale Integration for Accurate Chemical Delivery
Our bulk chemical delivery solution offers seamless integration with scales such as Fairbanks (e.g., FB3000) or Mettler-Toledo. This integration allows you to calculate the weight volume accurately, so then you can determine the amount of product loaded onto your truck. For instance, when dealing with bleach, a 10% concentration is lighter than a 12% concentration. By integrating with the scale, we can determine the weight of the product and convert it to gallons based on its density, while accounting for the weight of the tractor and trailer. This ensures precise measurements and efficient delivery processes.
