Some farms grow food,” says the soothing yet authoritative voiceover in the commercial. “This one grows fuel.” So begins a recent television commercial from ExxonMobil that brings again to the consumer consciousness the idea of growing algae for biofuel production.
Factory engineered, mounted, piped and wired for open cooling towers, Smart Shield can be used to protect evaporative cooling water applications. The solid-chemistry, water treatment system provides controlled release and monitored release.
A corrosion and scale control chemistry for cooling water, in a study at a large gas plant, reduced phosphorous content in the cooling tower discharge by more than 80 percent while achieving the targeted mild steel corrosion rates. As a result, the plant will meet pending phosphorous discharge regulations and avoid capital costs of approximately $5 million for a phosphorus removal system.
Heat exchangers, boilers and other water-contacted vessels are integral parts of many industrial plants. Often, when people think of protecting these components from corrosion, their minds fast-forward to corrosion issues that occur after the equipment is installed.
Evapoway is designed to help companies with the evaporation of frost and condensate where no drain is available or practical. The electric condensate evaporators have passed rigorous testing and are UL recognized.
A steel plant had no choice but to use river water for its cooling towers. Adding electrodeionization water treatment equipment made it possible.

Water is an expensive resource for industrial companies, and it can be especially so for those that rely on cooling towers as a part of the manufacturing process. Cooling towers use a large amount of water on a consistent basis and are subject to scaling and corrosion issues. When the equipment is not maintained properly, an even greater amount of water can be used — and sometimes wasted.
The following study details a case study storybook regarding a Dynamic Water Technologies UET installation at Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall facility in Scottsdale, Arizona. The document shows water savings, details progress on the water treatment at the facility.
Roche Molecular Systems (RMS) is a diagnostic division of Hoffman-La Roche, the world’s largest biotech company. RMS manufactures equipment for medical diagnostic equipment for physicians, hospitals, and consumers.
