Gee dosing systems are widely used right across process industries in applications such as the dosing of chemicals for the paper and pulp sector, for injecting CIP chemicals in the food and drinks industries and for the recovery of wastewater in processing plants such as in the electronics industry. In addition, systems are available for petrochemical processes and for materials used in the construction industry, including cement.
There can be a variety of applications within the manufacturing industry for chemicals. The most common applications are for the treatment of the feedwater to a boiler or the treatment of cooling tower water.
Gee & Co has special expertise in high volume manufacturing operations such as the automotive industry and PCB production.
The applications for chemical dosing are found in both on- and off-shore installations.
These invariably entail the painstaking engineering of dosing systems which are designed to operate in arduous and sometimes hazardous conditions – robustly and reliably.
Within the manufacture of paper a great number of chemicals are utilised for increasing process efficiencies and for biological control.
In addition the process relies heavily on the use of steam within the drier sections and they will, therefore, have cooling towers which will produce water that must be treated. In some paper mills they will not only have industrial effluent treatment but they will recycle water and recover fibre at various stages of the process. For example de-inking plants
Gee & Co has substantial experience within food and beverage markets where the applications vary dramatically from boiler water treatment and cooling towers to process applications such as CIP applications or the use of sanitisers.
Owing to the complexity of the chemical industry there is an extensive number of application points for process chemical dosing and metering.
Applications are most usually found in the blending rooms where speciality chemicals are added in small quantities which must be metered very accurately, and where chemicals are costly and/or critical to the finished product quality.
Gee has a high degree of expertise in designing systems which are adept at enabling the safe and effective handling of such chemicals.
