  • Water treatment research for mining industry

    Securing a reliable supply of water for extraction, handling and transportation is vitally important to mining companies looking to expand their operations. These companies will go to great lengths to meet this need, running pipelines hundreds of miles long from desalination plants on the coast and treating wastewater that is conventional held in tailings ponds. Wastewater treatment technologies can recover saleable metal that might otherwise be lost and prevent environmental contamination from highly acidic effluent streams. Developing the infrastructure and technologies to meet these challenges in the mining industry is driving a market worth $11.9 billon.

  • Water treatment research for microelectronics industry

    As devices get smaller and the fabrication plants get larger, the purity of the water required for ultrapure water systems increases. In terms of water reuse, the industry has relatively conservative attitudes towards recycling water for ultrapure water applications, but wastewater is treated and reused for cooling and other less critical purposes. Besides semiconductors, two other silicon-based sectors of the microelectronics industry need large volumes of highly pure water: flat panel displays (FPD) and photovoltaics (PV). Although, both sectors are in the process of maturing we anticipate that the increasing complexity of FPD and PV devices will create demand for even higher purity water.

  • Industrial and commercial water filtration for environmental

    These days we are becoming more and more aware of our environmental impact and carbon footprint, and in some cases the Government may even penalise companies who are not doing all they can to minimise the environmental impact of their activities. The Environment Agency instill certain limitations for industrial waste water users in regards to where and how water may be discharged – whether accidentally or purposefully, the discharge of waste water in to a river can lead to costly fines and very bad PR for your company.

  • Water treatment research for pulp and paper industry

    Historically the pulp and paper industry has had little need for desalination and reuse – not least because the majority of production is located near water sources. Four things are changing this state of affairs: The move towards recycling means that production in mills located in “urban forest” areas is rising. These facilities face higher water costs than green forest located mills, and have a greater interest in water efficiency. The fastest growing market for pulp and paper is in China, where raw water sources are both limited and impaired, and water technologies which can address these challenges are at a premium.

  • Water treatment research for food and beverage industry

    Direct reuse of wastewater in the product is not on the menu in the food and beverage industry, but the reuse of water for other purposes (e.g. washing) is now a priority. Most major F&B companies have made commitments to reduce their water consumption per unit of product, and reuse is an important part of the strategy for achieving this. Furthermore much of the growth of the industry is in emerging markets which typically have more limited, lower quality water resources than developed countries, creating water treatment challenges. In developed markets, emerging concerns about pharmaceutical by-products and other trace contaminants making their way into the product have lead to greater use of desalination technologies on the process water side. Value from waste propositions such as energy recovery, water reuse (not within the product) and materials recovery ensure that investment in water technology benefits the bottom line.

  • KRYSTAL KLEEN CAR WASHES REMOVES WATER SOFTENERS AFTER SCALEWATCHER INSTALLATION

    Krystal Kleen Car Washes in Hoover, Alabama has removed the water softeners from its three self-service car washes following the installation of the computerized, electronic, water-conditioner Scalewatcher® from Scalewatcher North America. This has not only saved the company thousands of dollars a year in salt but also provided a short-term payback on the units. Krystal Kleen Car Washes is located in a hard water area, with Total Alkalinity of around 200mg/L. This necessitated Jim LeNoir, owner of Kyrstal Kleen Car Washes, using water softeners at his three premises to prevent scale formation and water spotting on the cars. “I decided to try Scalewatcher at Montevallo since this was the hardest water location of the three”, said Jim LeNoir. “I stored the water softener just in case it was needed. However, after a year the Scalewatcher was working just as efficiently as the water softener and the customers were happy. Next installation was at Calera with the same results and finally at Homewood which has a spot free rinse system.” All car washes, including conveyor or rollover; high-pressure touchless automatics and self-serve bays, use water as the primary means of removing the dirt, road grime, salt, and snow off the surface of the vehicle during the wash process. Water softeners are the mainstay in the wash industry, providing a means of removing the hard mineral deposits that prevent soap from working efficiently. Water softeners are utilized to overcome the calcium carbonate that is the primary component of water hardness. However, 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 car washes meet these regulations by minimizing salt usage but also saves money on salt purchase and has the additional benefit of removing scale from lines and nozzles. 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. “All the water softeners have now been removed freeing up much needed space and saving me money. Best of all I no longer have to haul salt pellets”, concluded Jim LeNoir. 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 80 inches. All Scalewatcher systems come with a full performance guarantee and include free shipping throughout North America.

  • DOCUPAK LLC REDUCES COOLING TOWER CHEMICAL USAGE BY A THIRD

    Docupak LLC, a full service marketing company headquartered in Alabaster, Alabama, has reduced chemical usage by a third and removed all scale from its cooling tower at its plant after installing the patented, award-winning Scalewatcher computerized, electronic water-conditioner from Scalewatcher North America. In addition there are no longer signs of algae growth on the cooling tower louvres. Founded in 1998, Docupak, the operating name of Document and Packaging Brokers Inc., develops and distributes materials for businesses nationwide. In addition to its headquarters in Alabaster, Alabama, the company also operates a further plant in Alexandria, VA and has sales offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Los Angeles, Tampa and Washington, D.C. Aware that health agencies continually draw attention to the risks of limescale and algae in cooling towers and wanting to reduce the use of chemicals in the cooling tower, Plant Manager, Anthony Kinstley decided to install the Scalewatcher electornic water-conditioner through local dealer, Al Chatham of Water Processing and Well Supply in Harpersville, Alabama. An industrial Scalewatcher was installed on to the water-feed line to the building and then a further unit was specifically fitted on to the recirculation line of the cooling tower. “Since using the system the scaling on our cooling tower has been eliminated and we currently use only a third of the original chemicals intended for the water treatment within our system”, said Anthony Kinstley. Many air conditioning and refrigeration plant systems are water-cooled. The heat generated by cooling coils is removed by water, which is passed through a water-cooling tower. These are recirculating systems, which operate at temperatures ideal for bacterial and algae growth, and have plentiful supplies of nutrients. In cooling towers, temperature, water hardness, pH, scale and corrosion are all factors, which increase the chance of biofilms, algae and Legionella colonization. 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. “Scalewatcher has proven itself to be highly effective. I would highly recommend this product and service without limitation,” concluded Antony Kinstley. Scalewatcher models are based on continuous research and over 25 years experience and expertise as market leaders in electronic scale control with countless units sold worldwide. The patented Scalewatcher systems are capable of treating pipe sizes from one to 120 inches. All Scalewatcher systems come with a full performance guarantee and are shipped throughout North America.
