Dissolve the ferric chloride in acidic solution, e.g., dilute sulfuric acid.
You will get better dispersion by adding to the wastewater in an acidic stage (if present in your treatment). At higher pH, rapid stirring is necessary.

Acidic ferric chloride solutions are extremely corrosive, so plastic piping may be necessary.
