    Fly Ash - Industrial Vacuum

    Fly Ash can cause many problems. The Vac-Con & Vector Pneumatic Vacuum systems can assist and solve many of these problems. Our high-performance vacuum systems are manufactured in three basic configurations: Truck mounted, Trailer mounted, and Fixed/static installed. Any of these systems can be integrated into the existing power plant design. All of our vacuum systems can be utilized to solve your plant’s fly ash removal/clean-up needs and can assist in many other maintenance projects. All can be tailored to fit into your power plant’s specific needs. Vac-Con Truck mounted Industrial vacuum systems are equipped with large storage debris tanks with self-cleaning intake filter systems. The Industrial Trucks vacuum the waste products through existing manifold piping or with hoses attached directly to the debris tank. When fully loaded, the truck can then drive directly to the disposal site and discharge the waste products. The Industrial Truck offers a great amount of flexibility of operation and can be utilized anywhere in your facility for many different types of normal and emergency maintenance operations. The Vac-Con Industrial Vacuum Truck can be utilized on both wet and dry materials. The same Vac-Con truck can be used for removing Fly Ash from your plant, coal from broken intake belt conveyors, or used to suck wet muddy material from storage lagoons. The Vector Trailer mounted Vacuum Systems are designed to be used in several locations around power plants. The Trailer mounted Vacuum Systems connect to Manifold piping located in key areas within your power plant. The Vacuum systems move the waste products from the plant and deposit these products into moveable storage containers. The loaded storage containers when full can then be moved to the disposal sites for discharge. Vector Static Mounted Vacuum systems are designed to vacuum and remove Fly Ash and other bulk waste products through manifold piping from operational areas of the plant and deposit these waste products into collection storage silos for later transport to disposal sites. The fixed vacuum systems are electric motor driven and are normally installed as a permanent addition to in-plant existing conveying systems. Please contact us with any requirements you may have. We will evaluate your request and respond with solutions specific to solve your problems and fit your needs.

  • CUSTOMER CONFIRMS LONGEVITY OF SCALEWATCHER ELECTRONIC WATER CONDITIONER

    Scalewatcher North America, manufacturer of the original, patented and award-winning computerized electronic water-conditioner, states in its literature that the device is produced to last at least 20 years and comes with a 10 year warranty. However, no reports have been received on the longevity of the units sold since the company was launched over 20 years ago. Now a customer in Gilroy, California has come forward requesting a new Scalewatcher unit after the device she purchased in 1992 finally stopped working. She purchased the new Scalewatcher from local dealer, Aqua Genesis, and reported that: “ I noticed that the sprinklers are covering more of an area than before. When I squirt water on the black and white tile patio table there are no longer any calcium spots even if I do not dry it off. The tile shower and the clear shower door are easier to wipe down after my shower. The new ScaleWatcher is much better than before. It certainly was time to replace the old one.” The new, innovative, electronic Scalewatcher water conditioner uses proven technology to quickly and effectively dissolve existing limescale and prevent it recurring, returning water systems and water-fed appliances such as kettles, washing machines and dishwashers to their former efficiency. It also removes scale around faucets, sinks, baths, plugholes and shower roses as well as preventing white marks on shower screens and mould on shower curtains. The system requires no plumbing, chemicals or maintenance and is environmentally friendly. In addition scale costs money for householders through additional cleaning products, the early renewal of water–fed equipment and additional costs to heat water. It is estimated that 40% more energy is needed to heat water in a system fouled with ¼ inch of limescale. Commenting Jan de Baat Doelman, President of Scalewatcher North America says: “We have always built Scalewatcher electronic water conditions to last and this latest information confirms the device’s longevity. Scalewatcher will pay for itself in less than three years and then carry on providing homes with a scale free environment many more years to come. ” Scalewatcher models are based on continuous research and over 20 years experience and expertise as market leaders in electronic scale control with countless units sold worldwide. The patented Scalewatcher systems start at $248.00 USD and are capable of treating pipe sizes from one to 120 inches. All Scalewatcher systems come with a full performance guarantee and include free shipping throughout North America.

  • REPLACING WATER SOFTENER WITH GREEN SCALEWATCHER WATER CONDITIONER

    Roper’s Restaurant, a cowboy themed restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico has replaced its water softener with the computerized, electronic, water-conditioner Scalewatcher from Scalewatcher North America. By installing Scalewatcher, the restaurant has avoided paying the $500 quoted for replacement media for its old water softener and also saved hundreds of dollars a year in salt and water thereby providing Roper’s with a short-term payback on the unit. Roper’s Restaurant, part of Outwest Eateries LLC dba, is located in a hard water area. This necessitated Bryce Chant, owner of Roper’s Restaurant using a water softener to prevent scale formation in the kitchen. “When I was given the price to repair our old water softener, I decided to install the Scalewatcher from Advance Plumbing”, said Bryce Chant of Roper’s Restaurant. We have had great success with it. Even though we had a water softener we still had hard water scale and a white ‘film’ in the dishwasher. Now with Scalewatcher that scale and ‘film’ has disappeared.” The average restaurant consumes 5,800 gallons of water daily, with 50% being used in the kitchen. If not properly treated, hard water can drain a restaurant’s bottom line due to the early renewal of capital equipment such as water heaters, boilers, coffee makers, dishwashers, steamers and other water-fed equipment. Hard water contains calcium carbonate that adheres to heating elements and the internal surfaces causing scale buildup that impairs efficiency. The limescale that deposits on the heating element will, if untreated, reduces efficiency, induces corrosion of the element and ultimately lead to appliance failure. In addition in restaurants, hard water also necessitates the use of additional detergents. In fact, for every additional grain of hard water, detergent use increases by between 2% and 4% per 1,000 gallons of water used. Many restaurants, like Roper’s use a water softener to reduce limescale. However, water softeners use copious amounts of both water and salt, which are expensive to buy and salt is also bulky to store. In addition, in many States now, including Southern California, municipalities and water departments are severely limiting, and in some cases prohibiting, the use of salt-regenerating water softeners due to concern regarding the increased levels of salt in ground water. The award-winning Scalewatcher system not only helps restaurants meet these regulations by minimizing salt usage but also saves money on salt purchase and has the additional benefit of removing scale from water-fed equipment. The environmentally friendly Scalewatcher provides a permanent solution to hard water problems without the need of chemicals, salt or maintenance. It works by producing a varying electronically applied force field, induced by a coil wrapped around the outside of the pipework, which keeps the minerals in suspension and thus prevents limescale forming. The water’s increased solubility enables it to dissolve existing scale, which is gradually washed away. “We are saving money each month because we do not have to purchase salt for the water softener and we are not dumping salt filled water down the drain because there is no brine process with Scalewatcher”, said Bryce Chant. “Living in New Mexico with our drought situation, I hated knowing all that water was being wasted. Scalewatcher is a truly ‘green’ technology that we are happy we have implemented”. Roper’s Restaurant has been so impressed with the Scalewatcher technology that the managers have bought units for their homes and have recommended it to family and friends. Scalewatcher models are based on continuous research and over 20 years experience and expertise as market leaders in electronic scale control with countless units sold worldwide. The patented Scalewatcher systems start at $248.00 USD and are capable of treating pipe sizes from one to 120 inches. All Scalewatcher systems come with a full performance guarantee and include free shipping throughout North America.
