Automate Your Chlorine Injector with a Cloud-Based SCADA Solution

The essential importance of meeting strict guidelines when you distribute water to municipalities may increase the burden on you, but you can clean water impurities with a chlorine injector. SCADA technology can help operators monitor the system more efficiently and cost-effectively.

High Tide Technologies provides cloud-based SCADA solutions that help make municipal water safe to drink and the system efficient to operate.

Considering the Most Prevalent Water Impurity Sources

Anyone who gets water from a well and has no access to municipally treated water may not understand the effects of impurities in the water on quality. The water may look clear, but that impression belies the presence of contaminants that influence its color, taste, and healthfulness.

The right home water system can produce clean drinking water that makes it safe for you to drink, give to your animals, use for cooking or enjoying a contaminant-free bath.


Municipal water undergoes treatment that eliminates most of the harmful bacteria and pathogens that it may contain. However, you never know when a failure in public treatment systems may occur. With a home purifying system, a chlorine injection can help you ensure protection for your family against disease and illness.

Hydrogen Sulfide

With an unpleasant smell that resembles rotten eggs, hydrogen sulfide can create impurities in water that produce adverse physical reactions that you can avoid with proper water treatment. Some people experience a laxative effect that may lead to dehydration.


While small doses of iron may provide an essential element in nutrition, it can give water a metallic taste that many people find unpleasant. Too much of it may cause you to vomit, have diarrhea or abdominal pain and potentially suffer from dehydration.

Hemochromatosis, an iron disorder that can damage joints and organs, prevents people from regulating iron absorption. Chlorine injection in your drinking water supply can help control the intake of water that contains excessive amounts of iron.

Understanding Processes for Treating Water with Chlorine Injection

Whether you provide technical support for a municipal system or have concerns about the safety of your home’s water supply, the main reason for treating it remains the same. The removal of impurities and contaminants converts it into clean drinking water that poses no health risks.

Chlorine Injection System

A chemical feed pump can inject chlorine into the incoming water supply on demand to rid it of bacteria, hydrogen sulfide, and iron. A chlorine injector introduces the chemical that produces a chemical reaction known as oxidation when it dispels impurities in a mixing tank. The oxidation process removes them, and a metered backwash carbon filter eliminates the residual chlorine from your water supply.

Hydrogen Peroxide Injection

By implementing many of the same principles of operation as a chlorine injection system, a hydrogen peroxide system uses an on-demand pump to inject the chemical into your water supply. When it finds high hydrogen sulfide levels in your water, the impurities respond to ferric hydroxide floc. When the oxidation process completes its effect, a metered centaur carbon filter absorbs the residual hydrogen peroxide as it produces clean drinking water for you.

Maintaining a Chlorine Injection System

Our cloud-based SCADA software provides data solutions that enable operators to keep a chlorine injection pumps working effectively. The tanks must receive source water and treatment with a chosen chemical, and its residue needs flushing on a routine basis. Someone needs to change the carbon filter between two and three years on average or when it becomes exhausted.

Additionally, the injection point of the hydrogen or chlorine injection pump requires regular cleaning and maintenance. When any of the essential maintenance functions do not occur on schedule, you can lose the protections that the systems provide for your safety or the welfare of the users of a municipal water supply.

Choosing a Cloud-based SCADA Service Provider

High Tide Technologies offers SCADA software solutions that relieve your concerns about providing failsafe support of the systems that produce clean water to drink. We provide simple and secure networks that incorporate field units, cellular or Ethernet communications, satellite, and the internet to monitor and automatically control your system.

Our low-cost SCADA monitoring solutions, combined with industry-leading technical support, enables operators to identify problems and minimize inefficiencies. Instead of requiring your utility operators to drive to a site to determine the defects that may exist, use cloud-based SCADA to receive specific alerts that align with your goals and parameters.
