Commercial Case Studies

1] Plastic Manufacturing Factory

Hard Water Problems & Solutions

With all that’s required to run a successful manufacturing business the last thing a business needs is to have added headaches because the air conditioning isn’t working as well as it could.

Dealing with the Problem

The management at Plastics manufacturing factory found their cooling tower was needing so much maintenance to keep the air conditioning operating at capacity for their factory that they had to have dedicated maintenance personnel. The hard water scale was building up so thick and so fast in the pipes and the cooling tower that they had to do acid dosing on a weekly basis.

The Solution

Management installed the Aqua Conditioner as an anti-scale device and found that not only did it stop new scale from building up it also dissolved the existing scale.

The Result

The director was very pleased to report that in the 5 years since the installation there has been no scale build up whatsoever! No more hard water problems – just solutions!


2] Paper Manufacturing Mill

Solving Hard Water Problems in Industry

With the massive volumes of water required in paper pulping processing it’s little wonder that a paper mill began to experience equipment failure.

Dealing with the Problem

Massive vacuum pumps are used for extracting water from the paper pulp and waste water is an obvious by-product of the pulping process.

The hard water was causing significant damage to the pumping equipment. The calcium scale was building up very quickly and causing blockages to the point that heavy duty maintenance was needed every month to clear the pipes and pumps. This was a massive undertaking for the maintenance crew.

The Solution

A custom built Aqua Conditioner was commissioned (based on water volume and flow rates) for this particular application. At schedule maintenance the unit was installed.

The Result

No blocking of vacuum pumps!

Even after many months of faultless operation clearly the Aqua Conditioner does its job well. The maintenance engineer was so impressed with the performance results and the quality of the waste water produced that more installations are planned.
