Cooling-Water Treatment System

U.S. Water introduced the Phos­Zero family of cooling-water-treatment products with E-FeX technology, a new technology in sustainable chemistry for ­cooling-water treatment. E-FeX is a synergistic blend of ingredients that replaces the most common uses of phosphorus in cooling-water applications. The Phos­Zero products are designed to provide scale and corrosion control, similar to traditional phosphorus-containing chemistries but without the discharge or aquatic toxicity concerns of older technologies. Benefits for users of PhosZero with E-FeX include maximum protection against corrosion and scale, ensuring high heat transfer and maximum equipment efficiency; environmental sustainability through Phos­Zero’s favorable aquatic toxicity profile, reducing a plant’s environmental footprint; elimination of phosphorus discharge to the environment, enhancing regulatory compliance and eradicating costs associated with phosphorus removal from waste streams; and plant-safety improvement, because Phos­Zero reduces the need for acid use and storage on-site, helping to reduce reporting, insurance costs, and chemical-­handling mistakes.
