    Pumps for Isocyanate

    Isocyanate is one of the components in broadly all foam products such as foam mattresses, inner linings in cars, cushioning in car seats, chairs and sofas. The hard qualities are used for insulation of houses, machines, tubes, etc. There are various types of isocyanate, but common to all of them is that they react to the humidity of the air by forming very hard crystals, which wear out the pumps and mechanical seals, if any. For MDI (Isocyanate) it is recommended to use positive displacement pumps and the leading MDI producers are recommending the DESMI ROTAN® series (magdrive pumps). They have been successfully used for a long period of time at many different applications.

    Crushing of salts with Mercodor crushing systems

    The crushing of salts such as, for example, hardness salts, salt dispensers, but also rock salt, is a great challenge for the crushing machine from various points of view. On the one hand, the salts are very hard, but already in the presence of a very small amount of a liquid they dissolve and mix with the liquid. The Mercodor crushers are best suitable for crushing of salts of any kind such as, for example, crushing of rock salts, but also for crushing of salt dispensers and hardness salts.

  • 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.

  • Liquid Rock - Prevening Scale Formation from Ground Water Hardness

    Groundwater is in contact with soil and rock minerals. Significant amounts of the minerals are dissolved in the groundwater. Elevated water hardness is the result of the water interaction and partial dissolution of carbonate minerals. Scale formation is a crystallisation process. Crystals are a highly organised arrangement of molecules. The determining circumstances for a successful crystallisation event include concentration, temperature, pressure and chemical environment. Suitable conditions for the formation of a crystal require numerous factors to coincide. CALSTAT RO-30 provides crystallisation interference at a molecular level :  Excellent results are achieved at low trace quantities of product. Calstat RO-30 dosed at trace levels of 4-10 kg per million litres  Corrosion on steel surfaces is reduced or eliminated  For drinking water production with RO (reverse osmosis) systems, membrane fouling is reduced.

  • Electrodeionization

    The Fractional Electrodeionization (FEDI) process is an advancement of conventional EDI. The patented dual voltage process allows for a higher flexibility and tolerance to inlet water conditions, thus lowering the risk of scaling, and improving the plant& design economics and reliability. By incorporating a two-stage separation process with different voltages the FEDI process is able to: Achieve a higher hardness tolerance by having distinctly different concentrate chambers with separate reject streams and thus reducing the potential of hardness scaling. Optimize power consumption by using higher electrical current only where required. Ensure the best water quality, continuously consistently by removing a major part of the deionization load in the hardness removal zone, while residual ionic impurities are effectively removed in the silica removal zone;, which stays in a polishing mode.

  • Water Containment

    Polymeric liners are prone to puncture by inclusions within the underlying soil. Thick, non-woven geotextile can be used to give protection to liners during installation. Often the upper slopes are exposed to damage and it is a good practice to cover these areas with a depth of soil which will sustain vegetation. Alternatively, a stone or concrete substance can be used to achieve a hard landscaped appearance. Our product will protect the liner from puncture whilst also providing a degree of slope stability.

  • Mold Control

    Controlling mold spores and bio-contaminants is a challenge for indoor gardeners that requires attention to detail and specialized equipment. An average cubic foot of air has around 100,000 mold spores. When sufficient moisture is available, mold grows. AgriAir Purifiers control and eliminate Aspergillus and many other types of spores, mildew, odors, and VOC as well as sanitize the air and hard surfaces from biological contaminants generated by organic decay during the entire growing process. AgriAir Purifiers generate ionized-hydro-peroxides, which result in a proactive method of indoor air sanitation and promote organic garden production. This purification method eliminates the need for the use of additional chemicals or biocides that generally contain toxic compounds. AgriAir products can safely be used in occupied spaces throughout the entire grow cycle all while effectively destroying mold spores and other harmful bio-contaminants.
