In 2016, one of our National Accounts Manager met an Engineer from Roche Pharmaceuticals in California. During his meeting in a Facilities Expo, they discussed about sustainability goals set by Roche Corporate and SHE groups at the California facility that target at reducing the use of chemicals on site.
What evolved from this conversation was a visit from Ted Schnipper, the Operations & Maintenance Manager at Roche Molecular Systems to one of our sites in Arizona. We presented the UET Cooling Tower Water Treatment System and explained how controlled partial electrolysis of water could remove scale from your towers, keep your condensers clean and produce enough biocide to keep the cooling system low on microbes. The fact that all this could be achieved without addition of chemicals to the system was what impressed the team at Roche. Further, the possibility of running higher cycles of concentration in the same cooling towers using the UET system helped the SHE team’s ability to save water.
After about seven months of operation and summer in California, the cooling towers are clean, low in biologic counts and the client has saved about 30% of the water used in the past to run the same cooling towers. UET water treatment system through electrochemical reactions accelerate scale removal into our reactors, kill biologics and produce adequate free chlorine to keep your cooling system at optimal efficiency. Traditional water chemistry is based on increasing the ability of water to hold more minerals than it naturally is designed to. We remove the excess minerals to keep the water always at the natural balance which we term as the “Dynamic Equilibrium of Water”. This improves our ability to run higher cycles than most other water treatment programs.
We design water treatment systems for differing applications, geographies, water composition and even conservation goals. Please contact us should you like for us to improve your system and help you meet your sustainability goals.
