In-line Dilution of Chemicals Using a Kidney Loop Predilution Approach
This method uses a side loop for diluting viscous chemicals such as concentrated sulfuric acid. The motive force is provided by using a slightly closed valve across the main line (alternatively the kidney loop piping can be faced upstream on the inlet and downstream at the outlet to create a velocity pressure). An injection quill is used to inject the diluted sulfuric acid into the larger pipeline. As the viscosity is reduced in the concetrated acid to "near water" viscosity, the acid will now easily disperse into the main pipeline flow.
Adjusting the pH of a Cooling Tower Basin with a Concentrated Sulfuric Acid Diffuser
Adding concentrated sulfuric acid to a cooling tower reservoir or basin for pH control can be a challenge. It is easy to overshoot the amount of acid added, because the acid tends to sink to the bottom of the basin and not mix very well due to the density and viscosity of the acid. The acid can cause damage to the basin if it is not mixed effectively
We suggest using a multiple head spray diffuser similar to the enclosed drawing. This diffuser includes an integrated mixer that ensures a dilute acid is evenly distributed across the span of the basin or reservoir.
