Ultra-Serv Solid chemical delivery system for water treatment
Ashland Water Technologies has launched a solid chemical delivery system designed to provide food and beverage producers with more sustainable and environmentally friendly chemical water treatment solutions.
The Ultra-Serv Solid uses an easy-to-install solid chemical delivery system that replaces liquid water treatment chemistries with a 100% active solid product. The dissolver system is loaded with 3.5 kg solid chemical discs that are sprayed with water to dissolve the chemical into a small volume of liquid, ready for application through the existing chemical dosing and control system.
The dissolver system overcomes the problems associated with other solid chemical systems and the company claims the system has proved highly reliable in the 200-plus applications currently in place.
By using solid product, the volumes of chemical that need to be shipped and managed are typically reduced by between 50 and 90%, depending on the application.
This large reduction in chemical volume lowers freight requirements, and reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. This, in addition with the elimination of plastic pails and drums, can assist food and beverage companies in improving their carbon footprint and supporting their sustainability goals.
Ultra-Serv Solid has been demonstrated to reduce environmental and health and safety risks by eliminating potentially hazardous liquid spills and eliminating the need for workers to handle heavy containers. Inventory management is also streamlined as less chemical storage space is required and the handling of solid product is much easier and reduced compared to handling pails and drums.
Ashland Water Technologies will exhibit the Ultra-Serv Solid at Foodtech Packtech 2012.
