How to use a chemical bypass feeder?
The Vector FA-1200AL chemical bypass feeders are designed for maximum operating specifications of 200 PSI (13.8 BAR), 200 F (93 C).
When selecting pipe valves and fittings ensure that they meet the working pressure of the system being treated.
Install chemical bypass feeder in accordance with one of the following configurations
- Across the suction and discharges sides of the a pump.
- Inline with horizontal or vertical piping with a valve or orifice to create differential pressure through the feeder.
- Direct feed to system using an external water source of sufficient pressure to to force chemicals into the system being treated being careful to ensure proper back-flow protection is being considered.
Feeder chemicals like liquids, pucks, briquettes, granular or powdered chemicals - Close inlet and outlet valve and drain tank by opening bottom drain and air release petcock valve. After system is depressurized, open cap and fill with desired amount of chemical. Replace cap, close drain and begin filling tank by opening the inlet valve at bottom of feeder with air vent petcock valve open until feeder is topped off and all air has been purged from the tank. Close petcock valve and open outlet valve on feeder allowing chemical to flow into system.
