EnviroTower by Ion Enterprises

EnviroTower provides a comprehensive, reliable solution for optimizing energy and water efficiencies of cooling towers. Being GREEN is also COST-EFFECTIVE (as we typically save 5-15% on OpEx with ROI of 1-3 years on CapEx. Now, the ScaleBuster and EnviroTower technologies are available globally, see www.scalebuster.com/distributors . ION Enterprises Limited has been trading since 1990, manufactures a range of environmental physical water treatment devices under the trademark ScaleBuster®. Over the years this technology has been installed by many well-known global companies with excellent results. ScaleBuster technology have been applied into more than 300,000 applications to date with over 400 EnviroTower systems installed.

Environmental issues are adding extra costs in many process industries, profits are down and images are affected. This situation is forcing industries to change their habits. Sustainable technologies, such as ScaleBuster®, are seeing increased investment from Global, European and North American Companies as business culture adapts. The technology developed and made in the United Kingdom has had more than US$8.5m (£5.5m) invested for its launch into North American cooling system applications under the trademark EnviroTower.

How does it work?

 

Once the ScaleBuster is installed into the system the calcium and magnesium are precipitated into suspension, these particles remain within the flow of the water. When these particles reach the hot parts of the system, the tendency to adhere to surfaces is dramatically reduced. After installation of the ScaleBuster, limestone is mainly present in the form of aragonite, which is a non-adherent crystalline structure contrary to the untreated calcite that can cause deterioration and damage in unprotected systems. The ScaleBuster protects the equipment from potential limestone damage with relatively fast return on investment vs. other the traditional technologies.

 

How Does the EnviroTower technology Work:

 

The patented EnviroTower - the Cooling Tower Water Treatment solution is designed around the ScaleBuster conditioner which precipitates the hardness (typically, Ca and Mg ions) in the cooling water, causing those ions to build clusters which grow larger as the water is recirculating through the ScaleBuster conditioner of the EnviroTower system, until they are removed from the water by the separation process.

The EnviroTower system is monitoring the cooling system’s water conductivity and controls the blow down (so the operator can cycle up, saving water, while keeping the system scale-free).

It also doses biocide (Bromine – as solid tablets – is recommended) as required, shocking the open circuit of the cooling tower once daily, as well as optional other chemicals (as Tri-Toly-Azole, to protect the copper tubes of the chillers).

In a period of 30 minutes after dosing any chemical – the EnviroTower system avoids any blow down (to eliminate drainage of the chemicals before they have actually performed in the water).

The separator removes the precipitated hardness with some water (calculated as part of the blown down water). The EnviroTower controller is equipped with a light tower (green/amber/red) so the operator can simply and easily learn the status of the system. For more water conditioning, every make-up pipe is also equipped with a smaller ScaleBuster conditioner treating the water coming into the cooling tower.
