Sio2Tech announces a new distributor feature to be able to log on and retrieve their newest literature and files for implementing the program and communicating better with the customer.

Advantages to Silica Based Chemistry

We have had tremendous amount of interest and to help share that interest, we are posting a quick look at the benefits of the WCTI technology. If you are interested in more information on this approach to chemical free water treatment, we encourage you to go to www.sio2tech.com

Methodologies in Cooling Water Treatment

Image
I have had a number of folks referring to WCTI as a Device (i.e. Non Chemical Device - NCD). So I wanted to refer everyone to this handout to help explain the three basic methodologies for treat ing cooling tower water. Hope this helps. WCTI is completely unique. Their are attempts out there to mimic this technology, however, there are very clear patents protecting this approach. Our propriety High Efficiency Softeners HES allows ultra high quality of hardness removal at 1/3 the salt and 1/3 the regeneration water required.

COUPON RESULTS (Mild steel and Copper) Coupon results from 74 days (and will look this same way 90+ days) after insertion on the WCTI program. I cannot reveal the customer for obvious reasons, however, if you contact me we can talk about the account and customer revue and any other question you might have regarding this technology. What you see is the coupons on their holders right next to brand new coupons not yet exposed. You could not tell the old from the new on the mild steel and the copper has the perfect coating as expected. Each metallurgy shown here had zero deposits around the coupon holders and zero pitting. These are only a portion of the story - as this program has not blown down since starting the WCTI program and is running over 50 COC with zero bacterial count and not using one drop of traditional chemical treatment. Stay - tuned much more success still to come

Information for those on the run

You can find all the benefits of the WCTI technology in this one document. There is of course a lot more information @ www.savingtowerwater.com

Relationships between hard and soft water programs

Image
I have been asked about the relationship between traditional hard water chemical programs and our WCTI soft water approach. This will hopefully help those that want to know how these two approaches are related.

Silica species in equilibrium

This chart will show how traditional chemical programs compare to WCTI relative to the silica species. No longer is Silica our nemeses but rather here it works as means to essentially eliminate corrosion and at the same time keep ions in suspension at very high TDS

Some Q&A about ZLD Program - WCTI

WCTI Technology Zero Liquid Discharge Technology eliminates scale and corrosion in ZLD operation of cooling towers. Silica chemistry maintains heat transfer, prevents galvanized white rust, controls bio-fouling without chemicals. US 6,929,749 / Silica Scale Control US 6,949,193 / Silica Scale Control US 6,998,092 / Corrosion Inhibition/Silica US 7,122,148 / Corrosion Inhibition/Silica Q&A Is it true that the make-up water stream for WCTI technology has to be almost entirely softened (Ca and Mg removed)? A: Correct, the process requires sufficient softening of makeup water to maintain total hardness levels at less than 30 mg/L as CaCO3 in the tower water to maximize water conservation and performance. Higher hardness levels can be supported at higher TDS due to common ion effect (example, higher hardness in seawater effect). Lower COC with some blow down from low hardness makeup can be maintained with results comparable to traditio
