Dosatron Nutrient Delivery System

For growers, farmers, and business professionals who need to rely on perfect chemical combinations, past irrigation utilities made it difficult to ensure that the proper chemical admixture was being pushed through watering lines. If water pressure or flow changed during the watering process, it could easily result in uneven nutrient or chemical distribution. 

Fortunately, the Dosatron Nutrient Delivery System has created an affordable, endurant solution to these issues. With this space-saving nutrient mixing system, users can be absolutely certain that they’re getting the desired chemical mixture each time they use the Dosatron system. 

What is the Dosatron Nutrient Delivery System?

The Dosatron Nutrient Delivery System is a solution for automated nutrient injection needs. It’s made up of a series of components including a Dosatron pump and four kits (starter kit, mixing chamber kit, monitor kit, and water hammer arrestor kit). 

The starter kit is where the admixing journey begins, and this part of the system pulls water into it so that it can then be sent into the mixing chamber. The mixing chamber is where ordinary water is infused with up to eight different nutrients, additives, or other chemicals.

From there, the admixture is sent into the monitoring chamber, where the correct mixture amounts are displayed on the monitor so that users can be confident that they’re using the appropriate mixture of chemicals to suit their watering or chemical-dispensing needs. The dosing components of the Dosatron system can even be turned on or off individually so that users can choose to include or bypass certain chemicals or nutrients depending on individual watering requirements.

To avoid sudden surges in water pressure due to the way the water changes direction as it’s pushed through the different chambers of the system, the system comes with an effective water hammer arrestor kit. Because sudden surges in water pressure can damage equipment or tamper with a watering system’s chemical admixture, the water hammer arrestor kit is pivotal when it comes to making sure the system stays in perfect working order. 

By employing this water-powered piece of machinery, nutrients or other chemicals can be suctioned into a tank before injecting them into water lines with utmost accuracy in concentration.

In addition to the highly-accurate nutrient mixtures, the Dosatron system has been shown to improve plant yields by up to 40% and reduce equipment maintenance needs, energy costs, and chemical waste production.

The system is ideal for urban gardening, stacked farming, indoor farming, aquaponics, and more. With the Dosatron Nutrient Delivery System, growers can expect the healthiest, most beautiful crop they’ve ever had.


Some key components of what makes such nutrient delivery possible are the drip irrigation feature, 3-part A/B/C tank solution, portable fertilizer injectors, and high water flow capability.

Metal Processing

Because metal processing is such a precise practice, the Dosatron system is proving to be an invaluable addition to metal processing plants. Processing fluids can be released in perfect ratios using the system’s volumetric proportioning. By using a carefully controlled system, much less waste is produced and energy requirements are reduced as well. 


In addition to helping metal processing businesses reduce costs for energy and chemicals, the system markets itself as a low-maintenance piece of machinery that will reduce labor hours spent maintaining or repairing any one of the working parts. In fact, the Dosatron system is so well-designed that thus far, it has saved users up to $100,000 during a working year compared with the costs associated with previous systems.

Nutrient Delivery

When it comes to nutrient delivery, Dosatron is one of the most customizable systems on the market, with four main panel sections that can accommodate a selection of different fertigation programs. It can work in any environment, from greenhouses to large outdoor areas. Perhaps one of the best features is the automation capability. By automating the Dosatron system, users can rely on accurate, timely dispensing of any solution they choose.


In addition, the accuracy of the dilution system makes measuring and pouring a thing of the past. Dosatron’s injectors make it to where there is no more guesswork involved and business owners can easily create a multi-chemical mixture that dispenses in accurate proportions every time. This water-powered system not only prevents chemical waste, but due to the water-powered nature of their operation, they greatly reduce energy needs.

Printing

In the past, printing professionals frequently had to expend needless labor hours and chemical waste in order to come up with accurate chemical mixtures. However, because Dosatron machines operate on a volumetric principle, they are able to continuously deliver consistent chemical mixtures no matter the given water pressure or flow. This allows professional printers to mix appropriately without wasting time, labor, and chemicals.


On top of being highly-reliable, Dosatron systems are easy to install, maintain, and utilize for the most efficient printing business practices imaginable.

How Does the Dosatron Nutrient Delivery System Work?

Dosatron is a water-powered chemical injector that does not rely on electricity in order to deliver the most reliable, accurate chemical injection into water lines. By using volumetric proportioning, Dosatron ensures that chemical mixtures will remain constant whether there are variations in water pressure or flow. As evidence of this assurance, the system comes with a monitoring chamber that measures and displays the chemical contents of the water that comes through it.


The mixing and dispensing process is simple. Once water enters the injector, the hydraulic motor is triggered and it begins moving up and down inside the injector. At the height of a stroke, the Dosatron pulls fluid in from the concentrate tank. At the bottom of a stroke, the concentrate is sent into the mixing chamber, where it is then discharged into the water lines. 

In five simple steps, the Dosatron system is able to produce water with the perfect mixture of chemicals. 

  • Water flow enters the injector.
  • Water enters the Dosatron and triggers the motor.
  • Concentrate is pulled into the injector.
  • The concentrate and water mix together.
  • The new solution is pushed into the water line.
