Some wise person once said that "for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction" . Hmm.... In fact, I think he may have had an apple drop on his head.  There is another saying that for every action there is a consequence - some call this Karma. So when we look at the actions taken in the field of water treatment in cooling water, there must be some consequence to our actions. WCTI has forever changed the way the industry has thought of cooling water treatment by simply changing man's chemically engineered design back to Mother Nature's manifestations...  WCTI is nothing more than thinking of Newton's 3rd Law in the reaction that takes place in the ion exchange resin by the one to one exchange of Ca/Mg for Na going to the tower make-up - - after all there is an equal and opposite reaction here right? Some might say that in our efforts to use water in a cooling tower, it must result in "blowdown" or more commonly known as tower bleed.

Addressing all aspects of your Waterside Assets

The owner of Water Conservation Technology International, Dan Duke has given the industry an amazing tool that gets a lot of “press” these days on water conservation. I firmly believe that reducing the total plant discharge from their cooling towers system from a range of 12-40% to less than 2% (mostly less than 1%) does warrant the good press and yes it is what seems to be driving a lot of customers to the WCTI process. However, I like to believe that in areas where: Scale was the real problem, WCTI chemistry has removed that obstacle by controlling hardness and all that it entails. Corrosion was the problem, that problem has been eliminated or substantially reduced from that of index chemistry programs by using what mother nature already has given us with silica based chemistry. Bio-fouling was a problem, there is now no more bio-film or water borne deposits on WCTI Chemistry. So for me, I like to think of it as also being about the RESULTS!. I
