What is Scale and How does it Impact Water Treatment?

Hard water has been causing issues for humanity for ages, whether it is making it difficult to wash our clothes and cars, or depositing on our hot water heaters and kettles. Hardness scale is typically the combination of calcium and magnesium compounds that have precipitated out of water (e.g., calcium carbonate, magnesium silicate). This tough deposit forms in HVAC cooling systems and process water systems and can wreak havoc by decreasing system life and increasing energy usage, maintenance, and operational costs.

Why Should I Have My Site Audited?

The scariest four words in the United States are “you are being audited.” These words are usually associated with the IRS reviewing tax filings and typically result in additional taxes, penalties, and fees. But in water management, being audited should be looked at from a completely different view. A water management audit works in much the same way as a routine checkup at your doctor’s office. During an audit, your system is reviewed for ways to improve its overall health. This goes beyond just increasing cycles to reduce blowdown and energy consumption. Audits focus on identifying other potential sources of makeup water, water reuse, and improved efficiencies.

Solid Water Treatment Chemistry

A Safer, Easier to Handle, and More Sustainable Solution

Solid Water Treatment Chemistry

Cooling towers, steam boilers, and recirculating closed loop systems require effective water treatment chemistry for reliable and efficient operation. Liquid treatment chemicals are traditionally used because they are easier to manufacture and add to systems. But liquids aren’t always the best fit and present safety and environmental concerns that are often overlooked.

COVID-19:  A Partnership Approach to Water Treatment Is More Important than Ever

With the impact of COVID-19, the ongoing partnership between plant personnel and your water treatment provider is more important than ever.  Water systems, such as cooling towers and boilers, are dynamic systems by design.  In today’s environment, they may not be operating as consistently as before with entire processes or facilities being shut down with little warning and, just as quickly, started back up.

COVID-19 and the Internet of Water Treatment

COVID-19 has brought the phrase “social distancing” to the forefront, and many locations won’t allow nonessential employees or vendors on site at all.  Not only has this changed the world we live in, but the outbreak has changed the value proposition for water treatment controls and services.  It has forced us to proceed quickly into the future.
