Advanced chemical free water treatment for closed loop cooling and heating systems (HVAC) for land and maritime use
What we offer:
Heating, cooling and air conditioning systems (HVAC) are designed to provide comfortable operating conditions for people functioning within the built environment. These systems require major capital investment, have long term operating costs and their energy consumption impacts significantly on the environment and profit. To maximise ROI and minimise environmental impact, it is crucial to protect and maintain structural integrity and design efficiency.
The energy carrier within the majority of HVAC systems is water: it has no COSHH requirement and is environmentally friendly. However, its inherent properties and consistently variable quality present a major operational issue. The instant that water enters a HVAC system it causes corrosion, scaling, bacterial contamination and fouling. This has a huge impact on energy consumption and on HVAC system components.
When specifying a water treatment regime consideration must be given to its efficiency, its whole life cycle cost, how easily it can be implemented and managed, and what potential risk it presents to personnel and environment. The conventional approach has been to use chemical additives, but this can cause localised pitting and accelerate corrosion.
The water treatment unit combines reproducible principles of water chemistry with standard water treatment technologies. The unit provides effective dirt and air separation with environmentally sound water conditioning. It creates changes in key water parameters pH, alkalinity and hardness to elicit corrosion inhibition, control of scale formation and a biocidal effect.
The offered technology is designed to improve HVAC system efficiency. An example is a unit installed 2001 on board a cruise ship on a 50qM chilled system. The results showed that around 3,000kg mud was removed within six months and compressor efficiency was improved by 25%. Protecting HVAC systems is also a proactive step towards safeguarding the environment. Another example is that a major world wide provider of diesel engines has formally approved the system for use with its m
arine diesel engines.
