Owner/operators have another option for keeping their cooling towers and evaporative condensers clean without the fees associated with chemicals. Schertz, Texas-based VRTX Technologies introduced a service program that promises to deliver nonchemical monthly treatment at a fixed price with guaranteed performance.
Intended for facilities accustomed to paying monthly fees for chemical cooling water treatment, the full-service agreement from VRTX will provide all necessary equipment and filtration, installation, monthly service, periodic mechanical service and a continuing mechanical warranty for a minimum of five years. According to the company, VRTX offers the only nonchemical water treatment service with a performance guarantee of the system.
The VRTX system relies on kinetic energy, hydrodynamic cavitation and chemical equilibrium to control scale, corrosion and bio-fouling without the hazards of chemical treatment. According to the company, it also minimizes corrosion and microbiological growth, reduces system operating costs, and conserves water and energy.
“VRTX continues to be an innovative alternative to chemicals with the extension of the full service agreement,” said VRTX CEO David Nicholas. “Our chemical-free technology and FSA are the first to provide companies a set price with a guarantee without the surcharges and add-on costs every month.”
