Businesses are feeling the pressure to implement better water conservation processes due in part to influence from government agencies and environmental groups. Because conserving water also means lower energy costs, it is logical for businesses to assess their facility's water challenges and implement methods that help not only reduce water use, but also treat it more efficiently.
Some industries choose to implement closed-loop, evaporative cooling systems as a cost-effective technology. Closed-loop technology uses ambient air to cool process water, and its design is a step in the right direction toward water conservation. Traditional, chemical water treatments on these systems involve periodic adjustments, application and monitoring of proper levels within the system. This creates more evaporation exposure and invites human error into the equation for potential hazardous or costly mistakes.
Descal-A-Matic units are particularly beneficial in closed-loop systems where there are no chemicals being measured, added, buffered or manipulated. Because the Descal-A-Matic units require no adjustments after installation, there is more reuse of water within a closed-loop system, less waste from evaporation or discharge, and employees are freed up to worry about more important tasks than managing chemicals.
The Descal-A-Matic technology can be applied to a variety of industrial re-circulating systems as well as once-through systems, including boilers, chillers, cooling towers, fountains, water features, supply lines and more. For example, the Eisenhower Medical Center in La Quinta, California avoided constructing a $250,000 holding tank for their water system by utilizing the Descal-A-Matic system.
When industrial water treatment systems no longer use chemicals, it benefits the surrounding area as well as the facility. Noncompliance with proper chemical disposal guidelines can result in large fines, while discharged water that is free of chemicals can be recycled for irrigation or other maintenance purposes. Reducing water used in the cooling process also equals more savings for manufacturers in the long run. It cuts down on equipment servicing, storage needs, hazardous materials handling, and last but not least “ labor costs.
Descal-A-Matic offers solutions for a wide range of industries looking to reduce water consumption and save money with an environmentally green solution to water treatment.
