MERLIN®Dilution Control System
Benefits

REDUCED LABOR, MAINTENANCE AND CHEMICAL COSTS

LABOR SAVINGS: With the automation the Merlin system offers, time previously spent manually diluting chemicals can now be used for other tasks. Also, reduce the number of trips to remote well sites and pump stations by monitoring via SCADA how much chemical has been used, whether or not the system is online, current feed rates and how much neat chemical supply remains. In addition to labor savings, this provides confidence in the operation of your remote chem feed application.

BUY CHEMICALS, NOT WATER: Chemicals are almost always cheaper to purchase in high concentrations. Instead of having your chemical supplier sell you low strength chemicals that are mostly water, blend your own concentration on site!! A Merlin dilution control system can pay for itself quickly in chemical cost savings alone.

SCALING: Many chemicals such as Caustic and Sodium Hypochlorite precipitate scaling in the piping and process injection point when fed at high concentrations, ultimately causing maintenance and distribution problems. Lowering the concentration of the source chemical in many cases will alleviate this problem and thus reduce maintenance costs.

REDUCE OFF-GASSING AND LEAKAGE: Sodium hypochlorite and other chemicals off-gas at a much higher rate in high concentrations than they do at low concentrations. Preventing off-gassing by diluting helps eliminate vapor locked metering pumps, exploding ball valves and liquid/gas separation that can cause inconsistent feed. Feeding high strength hypochlorite also exploits weak spots in piping and joints causing leaks, which increases maintenance and operator exposure to chemicals.

CRYSTALLIZATION: High strength chemicals like sodium hydroxide (Caustic) begin to crystallize and become very thick at temperatures as high as 55 degrees F making them difficult to feed. Diluting these chemicals allows them to be successfully fed at ambient temperatures down to freezing and reduces the need for heat tracing on piping, valves, etc.
