Sialex for the OEMs Application - Water and Wastewater
Our products are installed on many industrial areas and in the private household.We have also experience with fluids other than water, which will receive more attention in the future. Sialex is a production process employed in the manufacture of a range of fluid treatment devices. The initial product Sialex®Ring is an “After-sales” device. It is added to existing products (water pipes, in front of heat exchangers, water boilers etc.). Our devices are installed after the original device has been installed.
Many devices, required by industry, the hospitality industry, and the in the home, suffer from the effects of “scale and corrosion” caused as a result of these products exposed to water.
Working directly with manufacturers of such devices, we believe Sialex® can add further “value” by incorporating Sialex® treated materials / components into devices at the point of manufacture.
By extending product life and maintenance cycles, reducing “wear and tear” as well as contributing to improving overall “Cost of Ownership”, we believe our technique can add value to OEM’s products.
How does this work?
- Initial Project scoping: Initially discussions between both parties are the most effective way to achieve this. Understanding the benefit which the OEM wishes to achieve from integration of a “Scale and Corrosion” control capability helps both parties determine the suitability of such an undertaking before committing significant resources.
- Feasibility Test: A “trial” (using a standard Sialex®Ring device) can be undertaken to an agreed test plan with an accepted “Pass / fail” criteria.
- Upon successful completion of a “Feasibility test”, an initial product specification is agreed between OEM and Phoenix. This, based upon annual quantity requirements and dimensional details allows for the production of a “quotation”.
- Having agreed an outline of product specification, annual demand, pricing, OEM will purchase an initial quantity of “samples” based upon this specification. Production costs associated with this “limited run” will be borne by the OEM. A test period will be agreed and performance monitored by the OEM (with Phoenix support).
