Distribution Equipment and Systems

Rissy Plastics Flout

The flout dosing device from Rissy Plastics is a weighted floating vessel, hinged on a flexible pipe connector, that floats on the surface, storing a desired dose of effluent in a chamber. When the vessel sinks, it releases the chamber contents, then re-floats to store another dose. The cycle is completed without electricity or issues with dosing siphons. With sufficient elevation, the unit may be used for pressure dosing, eliminating the waste of pumping downhill. Other uses include stormwater, and freeze prevention. The pictured unit will dose with 8 inches of drawdown through a 3-inch pipe. This arrangement is readily available in drawdowns from 6 to 36 inches and may be ganged for greater flows. The flexible connector is designed to hold up to long-term wear. 860-482-1645;
