technology to measure the delivery of inhibitors into the system. This enables optimised control of inhibitor levels, allowing for enhanced scale and corrosion protection, increased plant longevity, improved compliance and peace of mind that you are not under or over dosing. This can create direct cost savings and, if the enhanced control enables the system to run at higher cycles of concentration, further savings in chemical and water costs.

Solid Chemical Water Treatment

Due to the challenges and limitations of traditional dosing, a range of blended, solid- concentrate, water-treatment chemicals for cooling towers and condensers, steam boilers, and closed loop systems have been developed. Solid-concentrate chemicals contain

several water treatment components that enable a blended water treatment programme that reduces corrosion, scale and biological fouling, boosting cost efficiency, and extends the life of plant equipment. Combined with PTSA tagging, solid chemical dosing enables round-the-clock, real-time dosing control. Available in a variety of configurations,

solid chemicals can be placed directly into dosing systems, eliminating the risks involved with liquid chemicals typically supplied in cumbersome 25kg or 200kg plastic drums. As many as 20 recyclable 5kg solid chemical tubs can be stored in the footprint of one standard liquid chemical 250 litre drum, reducing both the storage space required and the cost of delivery when ordering bulk quantities.

On-site Legionella Testing

Legionella bacteria is an existing threat in domestic and commercial water systems. Inhaling a droplet of the bacteria that becomes airborne through a spray or mist can result in deadly Legionnaires’ disease or milder Pontiac fever. Buildings are bound by compliance to manage the Legionella risk and the appropriate measures include taking

water samples to detect the Legionella count. Traditionally water samples are sent away

for analysis meaning it can be a matter of days before a building owner is aware of the Legionella threat in their water system. However, rapid swab-testing kits that enable the detection of Legionella in just 25 minutes are now widely available. This means that testing can now take place on site, allowing building owners and maintenance teams perform remedial work to safeguard their water systems as quickly as possible. These kits are supplied with simple

instructions meaning no specialist training is required and frequent monitoring is made easier. The innovative use of a cell trap filter enhances the sensitivity of the test to 100 CFU/L, making these kits incredibly accurate at identifying the fatal Sero group 1 strain of Legionella.

ClO2 Dosing

Ensuring water purity means preventing the build-up of bio-fouling and microorganisms

in water systems. Adding Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) to the water system is one of the safest and most efficient ways to guarantee this level of purity. Recently developed ClO2 generator systems provide a simple, cost- effective and reliable way to autonomously dose the right volume of ClO2 into your water system to ensure round the clock purity and protection from those contaminants that can easily build up. ClO2 should be the preferred method

of ensuring purity in your water system because it does not form undesirable disinfection by-products and has 2.6 times the oxidative capacity of Chlorine and will react in a third of the time, meaning at typical treatment levels it is less corrosive to pipes and equipment. Innovation should be linked to achieving

corporate business drivers and goals and as such, all innovative product and services should be the key to offer substantial ROI and peace of mind in terms of enhanced compliance and sustainability, both should be measurable and benefit driven.
